So people really don't see the difference when they watch Alex Smith, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers play?
We always see Alex learning a new system, and now doing it with all new teammates. Others in the same system with familiar chemistry in receivers can look a bit different, yeah.
Like when Peyton went to Denver? Really struggled there didn't he...
Peyton took the PEYTON OFFENSE with him to Denver. When you play in the same system for a decade and your new team basically hands you the keys to the car and says "we'll run what you want" then yea, the transition is pretty smooth.
Either way, the tired excuse of Alex Smith is getting just that, tired.
- Alex is still in a WCO, which shouldn't take him much time to adjust to.
- Alex went from Jimmy Ray's offense to the WCO with Harbuagh and had immediate "success".
- Alex also has weapons that compliment his playing style.
- He also has a better #1 WR.
What about QB's like Luck, RG3, Kaep, Wilson, and others who have had equal to or greater success in new systems? Alex is now a veteran QB who should be able to quickly apply things as he has seen different things. Save the excuses. He is an up-and-down QB that plays super safe football. Last year, his high's were very high and his lows were very low.
