Originally posted by mkmasn:As ive said for a few years now. our HOF QB greats, Rice and a few others said at the end of the day, who cares about stats, just as long as u put W's on the board. For example, they asked Jerry Rice about C. Johnson beating all his records, and his answer was funny as hell. He said, *yeah, well u know records are meant to be broken, but the difference between he and I, is that when i was putting up those big numbers, i was helping my team win championships.*. So basically if smith throws 150- 200yards a game, and helps lead his team to victory at the end of the day, then thats all u can ask for.

Gotta blame someone for arguably the worst ball club in the NFL... But it can't be the owners, the coaches, or any of the other players... just the QB.
Anyhow, he looked pretty good on that drive, saw some of that mobility, some pretty good throws...
What a lot of people who think he's a dink and dunk QB won't tell you is that the majority of those passing plays had MAYBE one deep route, all the rest were short to intermediate... No reason to throw 30 yards downfield, risking an INT when you can pick up 5, 6, 10...
With the same type offense, he helped us get to 13-3. I'll take that record, any year.
I mean even with Kaep. If he only gives us a few Td's a game, and doesnt throw on avg for 300yds or more, but helps get us that W. absolutely no complaints here. a Win is a win, no matter by 1pt or 21pts, if he throws for a total of 200 yds or 400yds. Just my two cents.
