Specifically because I do not believe that we should just hand over the job without competition.
I like what he did in the Preseason, but based on just that it's not enough.
I vote no but not because of competition. We need to prime him up to see positive results when he plays. There was no competition for Joe Montana. In fact, Montana had everything babied for him at the expense of Deberg's accomplishments.
Davis has the most ability out of all of our QBs and he has shown nice intangibles such as staying calm and poise, although it was preseason but that's something that only shows in a game.
Alex Smith may have been set up too fail and completely lost what got him to the NFL, but he still doesn't possess the talent and poise that Davis has shown.
Therefore, let Alex or Hill start next year and baby Davis into the starting role to assure that you are getting the best of Nate Davis without any questions as to what he can do.
