I don't understand how people STILL talk down on Alex after the past two and half years he has put up in SF. He has been rock solid since the Eagles Boo game at the Stick. Is he A-Rod or Brees? Heck no. But on most Sundays I would tale Alex over a lot of QB's. In this pass happy league I see a lot of QBs throw their teams out of the games, ints, three and outs, etc. Alex isn't a world beater but with the right game plan and talent he can make things happen. Pre-concussion Alex was balling and you all know it.
Could be one or all of these reasons:
- some only respect the deep passing game and 5,000 yard QBs.
- some have dug in so deeply into their opinion of Smith and his first few years that nothing can ever change it.
- some have hurt feelings towards other posters from past conversations, and just lash out at Alex to try and get even.
- some are angry that Alex has proven them wrong.. time and again.. on many things.
I think everyone knows that while Alex hasn't and probably won't set the football world on fire, he is a good and capable starting QB. I wouldn't expect everyone here to openly admit this... but I think everyone believes this.
