Alex Smith not only set some all time 9er and NFL records, played with NO offensive line and subsequently had his shoulder blown out on a deliberate pancake sack, with NO receivers until Davis showed up, and STILL hung in there loyal and almost got an inferior team to the Superbowl with almost perfect passing accuracy.
AND he personally went searching for that beautiful poor girl who was abducted and never found, drawing tons of people to join searching for her.
No he isn't Montana, or Young, or Brees, or Kaep.
But I think there are a few too many "fans" here who are simply punks.
If KC gives Smith enough to work with he is going to win games that most QB's in the league wouldn't have a prayer of winning on their own. He's that precise and that smart. Madden and so many other greats have always said the team who turns the ball over in the playoffs loses. Smith doesn't do that often if he has a team with ANYTHING RESEMBLING an offensive line.
Yes I am glad we have Kaep of course, but sometimes I wonder about some 9er "fans."
Smith has class, intelligence, a solid arm, can run better than most NFL QB's, and is loyal as hell and was one of the best 49er quarterbacks in history.
He deserves respect. And he may be an issue next year depending on the climate in KC.
