THe question is, is why would Alex want to re-sign here in the first place? With all our douche bag fans. WHy not go somewhere where the fans are not known as the Whiners, and feel welcome? Why not go to a team with a legitiment coaching staff?
I don't think Alex would care to come back.
Because we didn't cut him when the whole league labeled him as a bust.
I saw some Minneapolis Star article the other day that said the Vikes could make a move for Alex Smith in 2011...
I had to laugh at a report that Carson Palmer might be coming to SF next year, perhaps in a trade.
I can see why Cincy would want Alex. Palmer has a lower rating than Alex and he has two of the best receivers in the league. What I don't understand about that is, why would the 49ers give up Alex for Palmer unless Alex made it clear he would not come back here next year under any conditions? Palmer is warmed over soup at this point.
(Yes, I know Alex would have to sign and agree to the trade - a very unlikely prospects since I can't see a kid from the beaches of San Diego agreeing to play in Cincy.)
