I don't see how Ben going down is going to happen more and more considering we've spent 4 1st or 2nd round picks on our offensive line, but that's besides the point right now. We can't deal in the worst possible situation or hypotheticals, we have to deal with what's on the table right now - we don't have a Running Back or a legitimate third WR option to play with Manny and AB. Our defense is getting older and we don't have a Safety or OLB to replace Troy or Harrison. We don't have a legitimate ILB to play alongside Timmons and we don't have anyone to take over for Clark when he finally hangs them up. There's too many holes at other positions for us to concentrate on drafting a Quarterback in this years draft, especially considering how weak it is.

Garrard is a good band-aid as is someone like Hoyer until we've shored up these other positions and can afford to spend a 3rd / 4th on a Quarterback option that may be capable of taking over for Ben when that day comes.
