Look... Whether you put like it or not, ALEX SMITH WILL BE OUR STARTING QB IN 2010! Alex was not the sole reason we lost today. What about the ball getting stripped from TE Delanie Walker? Or our poor special teams play? (Bad field position) Or the fact that our offensive line couldn't pass protect for s**t!
If you think this loss was solely on the QB, then you didn't pay attention to the game.
What exactly has Alex done to secure his job for next year? McCloughan and Singletary have yet to announce him the starter for next year, so why are you convinced otherwise?
Everybody sees the problems with the lack of pass rush, the OL, the secondary, and return game, but why does the QB position get a free pass when QB is the most important position on the field?
Alex has three wins this year and two of the wins came from horrific performances by Cutler and Warner and yet those games were still close.
With the NFL being catered to QBs and offenses, you'd think that Alex would have an easier path to success but he's done nothing.
But I guess if Alex lights up the Div II squads, the Lions and the Rams, he's the answer right?
Did the Chargers decide against Philip Rivers because Ryan Leaf sucks or did Atlanta pass on Matt Ryan because they were afraid to draft another QB after Mike Vick? No.
QB doesn't get a free pass. He gets a get out of Jail free card cause h's gotten beaten to a bloody pulp behind EVERY line he's stood under Center at.
SO if you wish to consider it a free pass that's fine. I call it paying your dues. And I guess it's open to interpretation what exactly has he paid. Well he's back and blue and has helped make this Offensive unit relevant again. Can't neglect that.
yeah!!!Just ask Mike Vick!!!
He served his time!!
Oooooh man that's just bad.
Thanks for the comic relief though. It was definitely needed at them moment.
