Tebow even tho shouldnt be on the list, actually earned all his comebacks, every one of them his team was trailing pretty much the whole game and he found a way to break tackles and get in the endzone. I am not a fan of Tebows and im not saying i would want Tebow over Alex Smith.. Because as of right now id rather have neither to be absolutely honest. Maybe Alex will fix his footwork and captain checkdown status and impress me this year.. ( i say this every yr and it never happens) But there is absolutely no way Alex is on this list. He is not even top 10 at his position nonetheless top 100 in the whole NFL.
The defense gave him every opportunity to succeed last year and they and David Akers are to thank for the 13 wins and trip to the NFC championship. Luckily Alex didnt blow the save (baseball terms) on the win vs the saints. No way with decent QB play that, that game is even close when your team forces 5 Turnovers. I will give it to alex he was able to manage to throw the least amount of INTs last season out of all Qbs but thats the way Harbaugh coached him.. Let the D put you in a good situation and minus turnovers by making smart throws.
I could see Andy Lee making this list with some of the other players they have been showing.. Special teams is a big part of the game, and with out Andy Lee booming them and pinning opponents deep, might have been a different story last season.
This might be the dumbest post of the year
