The concept of a sunk cost is appropriate here. The fact that millions have been already wasted on Alex Smith is irrelevant. What's done is done. THAT MONEY HAS BEEN WASTED. The relevant question is this: will Alex Smith continue to be a waste of resources, or will he be the best option going forward?[/b]
I've seen nothing . . . aside from maybe that one Seahawks game or that one Cardinals game . . . to show that Alex Smith should be a starting QB in the NFL. He's garbage.
Nope, i could care less when he was picked, and i don't care how much money he was paid. I support him because 1. he wears red and gold and is a 49er and 2. he is the most talented QB on our roster and fits this offense better than the other QBs.
I like Hill, but i believe his stats were a direct result of Mike martz's "system".
Most talented??? are you kidding me? Sure Smith may be the YOUNGEST, maybe has the biggest arm amongst the QBs, but that doesn't mean he's any good. there are plenty of talented players out there that don't make it in the NFL. You can be a physical specimen or crazy athlete and still suck in the NFL. look at the raider's roster. they have probably the fastest, biggest, strongest guys on their team, but they still suck.
Your argument that Alex Smith is the most talented QB on our roster is just proposterous.
oops, i forgot to mention that he has a much higher ceiling, as well.. what you have seen with Hill is everything he has got.. Sadly, so has every other defense. when he came out last year he was basically an unknown.. he can only throw checkdown passes for so long before his obvious weaknesses are exploited. Smith can throw every pass needed in the NFL.. Like it or not, Hill cannot.
And as always, I am still at a disbelief at how much bias hate is directed at one player who is still wears a 49er uniform..
