6. I think I can't believe the sentiment out there for Alex Smith to win the 49er quarterback job. Unless Smith has had an arm transplant with Jay Cutler, how can anyone who has watched the last two San Francisco seasons think he's better than Shaun Hill? I'm not saying he can't win the job. But the sentiment in the Bay Area is so strong that Smith enters camp with the edge. It's not based on what has happened on the field. At all.
One of the greatest mysteries of the WZ and beyond... has any player performed so poorly and accomplished so little yet has been so vigorously defended and supported? I have never seen anything like it.
I am surprised that more of the locals did not attack your post. I posted something similar not too long ago and was called everything under the sun. I said something to the affect of that the competition is not really a competition but rather a way to try to get alex on the field. And that little of hill's and smith's performance during the preseason will effect the decision of who gets the nod.
