In this league it's VERY hard to change first impressions.
Alex Smith - first impression was that of underachieving and bust. He's had about 30 games in a row where he's played Top 15 QB in the NFL overall and people still question his ability as a starter.
Carson Palmer - came out of the gate with solid play and was considered a hit as a draft pick. Has done nothing worthy of significance since his knee injury, and yet still gets the benefit of the doubt in a lot of league circles.
