We never know what you have till it is tried. We use the learning disability or bad O/l as excuses not to start Davis. The fact remains some players have it some don't. We'll never know if all we see is that player sitting the sideline. I think Davis needs to be elevated to #2 back up and allow him to work with some of the starters, next season.
Absolutely. I loved what I saw in pre-season and sure he may need to learn the plays and get an off season to fully understand the system. But if they are even going to play the learning disability card then they are bigger idiots for wasting the draft pick
My thoughts are that he has better physical tools and mental tools than either Smith or Hill. An offseason and the same attention that the team wasted on Smith he will be a much better QB.
That is based on what I witnessed in the pre-season and the fact that Mcnabb also has faith in the kid. Hell they don't even know who Smith is and he is almost in year 6. Go niners and honestly what has Alex got to prove against two of the worst teams in the NFL. He has more to lose if he stinks it up. I think Nate Davis the 6 plays he knows (qouted in another post) could probably beat Detroit and St. Louis.
How do you know Nate has better physical and mental tools than Alex? You're a fan, not an NFL scout. You would probably think best to understand why Nate only knows/knew six plays. He fell so far, because his intelligence was a huge issue.(not his dyslexia) Alex over thinks plays and I see it as Nate isn't able to think enough.(ball state is good I hear) Nate Davis isn't the 2nd coming of Tom Brady so leave it be. A diamond in the rough is still a diamond, Nate is just a rock.
yah if Nate is a rock Smith is a twenty ton f**king anchor.
