Development and familiarity are key advantages, but I think the main difference between those QBs and Alex is ability.
Smith is not any of those guys, to be sure. Hell, he may not even be top 10. But he is better than some give him credit for.
All success that he's had - no credit to him.
All failures that he'd had - all on him.
That is what irks me.
Playing to not lose...shouldn't get credit for the win. Defense and ST won most of the games in 2011.
look at the way AS had to start out the game against the steelers..there is no way he can do that the whole game..and i'm not talking about stats..im talking about the tempo he had to use to get the ball out to the receivers.
he is a good dude..but just a stop gap player who knows his limits
not hating its just the truth..Proof you might say?
he was a UFA and only one team called after his best W/L record ever
Harbaugh didn't want AS starting after only one performance of a QB who was still green
Now here's the kicker...
AS yearly stats are no different from any year..The only thing he approved on was not taking chances which gave him a higher % but ended up with the same results
