And now we're comparing Alex Smith to Terry Bradshaw...
I think it's time for me to hibernate until week 1, I can't take this anymore.
What is wrong with that?They were both first picks,and they both started out slow on bad teams?I remember Cosell calling him the #1 bust prior to doing an interview with him,but he turned it around.I know that you guys that hate Smith know more than everyone else that thinks that he can turn it around,so sweet dreams see ya when the season starts.
You know who else started out s**tty?
Alex Smith is more likely to turn into one of those guys than into Terry F*cking Bradshaw, gimme a break.
I never said he would turn into Bradshaw,hell I didn't even say it was likely,so don't try to twist my words son.My point is that you guys always bashing him are just being shortsighted if you think it is impossible for him to turn it around.Give yourself a break.
Calling him a bust after his rookie season would be shortsighted.
But after 4 years of sub-par play and injuries, I think it's safe to call him a bust.
If you can tell this after one full season,why the hell aren't you an NFL scout?I mean the GM and coach seem to think he isn't a bust,but what do they know,they are just a veteran NFL scout and a Hall of Fame player?I guess guys like you and Billy are just more knowledgeable about judging NFL talent than the guys that are getting paid to do it.You should send in your resume to Jed York and tell him you know how to pick sure fire NFL talent every time.Then when you get the job because of how qualified you are,you can make the decisions on player personnel.Once you weeded out all the non pro bowlers we could all enjoy having our whole team as the starters in the the pro bowl.That would give us one extra game after we won the Super Bowl every year.Of course then we would have to convert Candlestick into a warehouse to hold all the Superbowl trophies that your expert talent analysis would bring to the team.Man what a wonderful opportunity the San Francisco organization is missing out on...it makes one sad to know how bad they are handling the team when they could have you.
If Alex Smith was on any other team, you'd be calling him a bust.
Any person that actually follows football would not call him an actual bust just yet. I wouldnt and I remember feeling sympathy for David Carr and wasnt ready to call him a bust bc of Houstons Oline but he eventually may be/is. When you have 4 different OC's in 4 years coming into football and not having great talent to work with then its gonna be hard. Atleast Rogers had Driver/Jennings to throw to. Despite the injury he suffered his 3rd year then I would not call him a bust. I give a player a minimum of 3 years to be labled a bust.
Have you seen the amount of money he's already made? This is a "what have you done for me lately?" league
Exactly what has he done besides 'take a pay cut because he has something to prove' to warrant not being a bust yet?
An overall #1 pick in the draft that can't even crack the starting lineup? He's not even in the top 32 quarterbacks in the league.
He's Top 5 according to half of this board lol
