08:03 AM ET 12.28 | Former 49er and current Arizona guard Adam Snyder will leave it up to the Cardinals' front office to decide the team's future at quarterback, but, if anyone asked him about Alex Smith, he'd offer a strong recommendation. "If someone asked me about him, I would tell them exactly what I thought," Snyder said on a conference call. "I think the guy's got unbelievable character, and I think he's a leader. Obviously, he and I came in together (in 2005). So I've got a special place for him." Several teams will be looking for a starting quarterback in the offseason. One of them promises to be Arizona, which will start its fourth quarterback -- Brian Hoyer -- of the season in Sunday's regular-season finale in San Francisco.

I bet he would.

I'm sure the idea is thrilling to Alex

And just where is that "special place"?

Hopefully it's not the special place Sanchez tried to visit relative to his RG.

Poor Alex finally has something going on with a winning team, then suddenly it's over and he's looking at being deported to somewhere like Arizona.

And that didn't work out too well for Sanchez.

Would the Niners dare deal Smith to a team within their own division? I'm not so sure.

LOL! Good one.

I see the Cards going for a backup with starter potential ala Schaub, Cassell, etc. Less risky than a draft and with Floyd and Fitzgerald you can make a decent QB look like a good QB.

December 28, 2012  10:24 AM ET

Yes the Cards would wecome any QB that doesn't wear thick glasses off the field.

I hear they're BFF now.

First of all the Cards need to address the biggest weakness on the team the O line and then get a QB.

Agreed. Until they fix the O line it doesn't matter who is their QB.

This seems to be the recurring theme with a number of teams.

For some reason, I would not put that past Jim Harbaugh.

Me neither, in fact I think Smith is not done playing for the 49ers yet, let's see Sunday. But I think he doesn't worry about the Cards as much as he does the Seahawks

Michael Vick may end up in Arizona. He'll help the passing game and the running game.

Yup, he'll help everything but there won/lost record.
