The sad part is he won't be given chance after chance to prove himself like Alex has been getting his entire career. If it were Nate going through those struggles I can all but guarantee he'd be off this team by now, despite all the excuses made for Alex. Why? Because Nate Davis was not the first overall pick of the NFL draft so if he didn't become what they thought he would be, as is the case with Smith, he would have been released by now.
where are al these chances alex smith has been given to prove himself....
2005...he was not handed starting job his rookie year, but instead was put in too early by the idiot nolan ( making his 1st start vs an undefeated colts team was not the move of a saavy coach)
2006..he earned the job and played well
2007...again was the best qb on team, and earned the starting job, and was hurt....that he was the best qb by a ile evident by way nolan put him back in while still injured)
2008 ..hurt for entire regular season...not given anything that season
2009...put in mideseason after Hill failed, earned and kept the job
2010..best qb on roster by far...despite the nate davis myth
again, where are all these chances Smith has been given?
