Who would have made a better replacement for Burnside. Or one hand Hooker did some good work improving army organization after replacing Burnside or the other hand it doesn't appear he had the unconditional support of war secretary and the president.
Couch I think had been in the running as a replacement for Burnside so what were his positives/negatives.

Couch was too close to McClellan to be acceptable I believe. Couch seems like he was pretty middle of the road at best.

I suppose if the choices of generalship excluded Hooker's reign and were based upon that timeline, the same ones' considered in June of 1863 would be in the draft.
