I don't think anyone is defending Smiths play sunday, they are just pointing out your obvious bias against him. To bag on Smith and then to defend Sanchez and Flaccos performances?? Flacco missed a WIDE open FB in the endzone by at least 5 yards. Smith gets chastised for hitting a FB in the hands on the same type of play.
Look at each QB's performance objectively. They all sucked.
There's a big difference though, we're talking about two young QB's in their second and third year vs. a veteran QB. Lets not forget they both have led their teams to the playoffs and showed that they can beat teams when it matters.
I don't agree. Look at the total starts and the difference is not that great.
And NONE of those QBs led their teams to the playoffs, IMO. Their defenses and running games did that.
And if I said that bout Alex Smith, it would be denial all the way. For instance, it was Gore and the defense who led the team to a 7-9 season in 2006.
Well, that wasn't the point but I largely agree with you.
Unlike many in NT, I think football is a team sport.
