You're kidding right? I guess people have forgotten that Smith looked pretty damn solid against 3RD AND 4TH TEAMERS in his Rookie year too.
Would you people please put the crack pipe down? PLEASE?
Put that kid into the fire behind our weak ass OLine against first teamers and let's see what happens. Until then SHUT UP about it. All you're doing is ticking us realistic fans off by putting out ignorant supposition about something that should NEVER happen unless necessitated by injury.
What are you smoking? Alex never looked good against anyone! He has a good arm, good speed, and he's smart--book smart. And the last has been shown over and over when he simply hasn't been able to develop a feel for the game--against first-stringers, second-stringers or even the scrubs!.
I always hoped that as he developed confidence the game would slow down for him and this would change. But this pre-season it's been more of the same. I can't get the screen pass out of my head that could have been a touchdown (I think it was in the second game), but Alex panicked and threw it at the receiver's feet.
Davis shouldn't be second string this year. He should be given something Alex deserved and never got: a chance to grow and develop without unreasonable expectations.
But I feel strongly that he is the quarterback with the more potential than anyone on this team in the last 5 years!
