This is my very first Alex post ever. I avoided all the screaming and banning since I started reading this site 3 years ago and when I became a member about a year ago.
I'm a 49er fan. Have been my whole life. The good of the 80's and 90's, the disasters of Erickson, Nolan, Sing.
With that said. Alex Smith is my quarterback. I dont pine away thinking about Rodgers, or Brady or Brees. I have hated him when he was terrible, and loved him when he was on. I didnt chant for Carr, or think Nate Davis was the answer. Until he is no longer a 49er, he is, has been and will be my quarterback. Through good and bad. When his time is done, either on his account or that of the front office, I stand with him. Other posistions come and go, I may not like some players (Chilo), but as a fan I root for them when they wear the red and gold.
To ask if I wanted Rodgers over Smith all those years ago is an insult to the man and to the team. He is the quarterback of our team, through good and bad, and we as fans need to support him and not drum up questions 7 years after the fact.
Thanks for the rant.
