Its so obvious that he is better than smith. I lost all faith in smith after that missed easy screenpass against oakland in the preseason.
If it is so obvious, then it is so obvious we should treat the kid with kid gloves "no pun intended" -- kid, gloves lol
Some QBs can play right away (Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez (apparently), Marino, Roethlisberger).
Others take time (Montana, Young). Hell, Joe Theismann returned punted. Ken Andersen took time to develop.
Elway, Aikman played early and got butchered like Alex did. They emerged from it, some never do, and Alex hasn't yet (some say he never will). Couch, Smith, etc.
Some are just bums like Ryan Leaf, Drunkenmiller, Schlichter.
Some start fast but peter out (Vince Young anyone)
Plunkett was a Heisman winner at Stanford and was the #1 pick by the Patriots. He was pounded there, went to the 49ers ("Plunkett to me lol') for a year or 2, and wound up winning 2 SBs for the Raiders.
People are hugging Rodgers' nutz but he sat for 3 years.
No 2 QBs are the same.
Let's let the kid transition. The so-called QB competition did not have a true winner which means Alex will probably play at some point. I don't want Nate playing, unless it is a blow out. Or both Hill and Smith are injured.
If we could fuse Smith and Hill . . .
