Because we passed on Aaron Rodgers for Alex Smith, that's why.
Yeah ok, who's to say that he wouldn't have ended up like Alex if we had thrown him into the fire with an awful football team like we did with Alex. That's the problem when you use hindsight to make assumptions. No one knows what would've happened to Aaron if we had drafted him instead of Alex.
Aaron Rodgers has been and always will be a more talented NFL quarterback than Alex Smith.
In every situation, on every team, with any set of wide receivers, running backs, and offensive line.....and with any coach.....Aaron Rodgers ALWAYS ALWAYS would have out-performed Alex Smith.
Rodgers > Smith
Everyone uses the offensive coordinator excuse and other excuses but Hill has had the same coordinators and same talent on the team while turning it into success.
Smith = Bust
.....i hope that was a joke
7-3 isn't that bad. And it can certainly be considered success compared to Smith.
7-5 before his injury, so that 7-3 argument is a joke anyway.
Yes, Rodgers was always going to be better early on, no one ever denied that. Smith got drafted for potential.
Which is fine except that if you are gonna draft a QB number one you don't draft a project one. Unless you trade up to number one and you have a team around him to hide his weaknesses.
Rodgers never was worthy of the number one pick either. Braylon always was the choice that season.
