I don't know where people get this in their head; but, it just makes no sense to me. You do not need to love every player that has ever put on a Niner Uni to be a "true fan".
Were you a "true fan" last year when JTO was throwing pick after pick, or were you calling for his head? How about Nolan when he refused to make the changes necessary to win? What about Hossler when he was clearly in over his head?..
Man, you've got a ways to go before you understand what it means to be a true Niner fan.
A true Niner fan does what . . . um . . . um . . . what some of us think a true Niner fan does!!
. . . Thank you!. . . no really, please . . . . . . enough . .Thank you !!
A true niner fan just wants the team to succeed and win regardless of who is playing QB. You don't have to "love" every player on the team but it works the other way around too. You don't have to "hate" other players either as long as the team wins.
Some people on this board would love to see Smith continue to fail miserably if he won the starting job just to be proven right about him.
Even if it is at the cost of losing games. they want to be able to say "I told you so."
I frankly don't care who wins the QB competition as long as the 49ers return to their winning ways.
And everybodies whinning and crying on who should be the starter is getting old. The coaches know Hill and Smith's track records. You guys aren't shedding any new light. There are no new revelations. Everything you guys have said they already know and guess what,
They are still going to have this QB competition.
So deal with it people!
