A. Smith for sure. Carr has had other teams interested when he was done with his first contract. Alex Smith has no interest outside of S.F., and that is only becaue of prior investment. In economics it's called sunken cost. We should cut our losses and move on. Carr could still start somewhere in the league. Smith v. Carr, I'm taking Carr all day.
How the hell do you know that Smith had no interest outside of SF? You do know that he wasn't released and re-signed, right?
Yeah, I had a problem with that statement also.
1) I think the lack of surrounding talent has been pretty similar for both of them. That's a wash.
2) Carr is done, and Alex still has a VERY SMALL chance to make something of himself. That goes to Alex.
3) Carr played better overall (while still poorly) when he played. That goes to Carr.
4) Smith has been injured and has had a horrible carousel at OC. Carr doesn't have those excuses. That goes to Smith.
Basically, I think Smith has been less of a bust at this point, but not by much.
