The team doesn't want to risk re injury in a meaningless game.
No such thing as a 'meangless game' to Smith's development. He has missed all of last year. He is still learning a new offense.
When we have 3 QB's and one of them is a rookie then I'd say it was meaningless.
Not sure what that means. Better to try to continue to develop your former 1st round pick -- still with question marks, coming off a major injury, learning a new offense, and one play away from actually starting for and leading the 49ers -- or better to give a 5th round rookie some extra reps, who if he has to start a single game this year means we are already screwed?
I don't understand what you don't understand about the possible re-injury of our backup QB in a exhibition game right before the real games start.
so its ok for shaun hill to play but not alex?
you would think Alex would get one series.
if he is not playing because the injury is worse than they want everyone think....then we are in trouble if something happens to Shaun in the 1st 2 games.... I love Nate, but I don't see the coaches allowing Nate to throw much....and we would just run, run, and run more so than we already do . If Alex is indeed not ready to go.....then this is totally unprofessional of the team to go to the regular season like this......especially letting Huard go..... but if Alex is indeed fine.... then he NEEDS to get atleast one series......I mean he hasn't played in 2 years...it doesn't make sense.
