Hill taught Smith how to lead

I'm just glad Hill didn't teach Smith how to throw the damn ball. That would suck having two guys pitching wounded ducks.

Now, if Smith can just keep up what he did on Sunday, I might have some faith in him.
I think that is a possibility as well. Smith sitting back looking at how Hill manage and handle the guys on offense. Players have said that they like Hill's leadership. So yeah, I think that rubbed off on Smith in a good way.

What I want to know is...will Smith go on the JOE Show or will he continued to avoid, Man Up!

I really doubt Hill taught Smith how to lead because Hill himself is not a leader so I don't know what are you talking about.

Hill is not a leader that is why he wasn't a captain on our team this thread fails miserably! No offense bro!

Alex has matured...just take a look at the BEFORE and AFTER pics...LOL...

BEFORE: looks like the kid on the cover of MAD Magazine




AFTER: Someone who has been around and suffered....a grown man...

HAHAHA. Alex went through a second phaze of puberty
yup, Smith's success last Sunday has nothing to do with Hill.

I WISH, Hill taught Alex how to lead. I love what Alex did on Sunday and I'm pumped he's starting.

HOWEVER. I don't ever see him as a big locker room guy. For goodness sake you can see it on any video taken in the locker room. Staley picks on him practicality every time--quite funny.

Isn't that a good thing? I don't know if you ever played on a team, but guys always pick on eachother. Im pretty sure Alex gets some jabs in.

I don't think it's related to Hill at all.

1) Healthy now.
2) More maturity.
3) More experience.
4) Gets it finally.
5) Much better skill players around him than he ever had in the past. (VD & Crabtree for example).

The O LINE is still garbage and may still get him killed before seasons end...

2nd this - Don't forget Nowin isn't around either!

maybe he leads with his actions on the field? Plus I wasn't aware someone had to be a loudmouth jerk to be a leader
I don't really care if Hill taught Smith, or if Smith just matured.

All I care about is that Smith in two quarters lifted this team, and changed a boring Woody Hayes game plan to something that was exciting to watch. I believe that by opening up the play book and more passing route opportunities, it should open up the
run game. Alex's abilities to throw different routes (read deeper balls and outs) should make the defense have to scheme for an entire offense, not just 3 yards and a cloud of dust.

It's nice to consider that we may actually have an offense that the defense doesn't know what's coming at them for the first time in a long time. Now our game plan doesn't have to revolve around how the defense is going to hold the offense so that our offense can go 3 and out. Our MVP won't have to be Andy Lee or Joe Nedney.

I don't understand why everyone is acting so surprised in Alex's performance.

The guy had a solid year in year 2 and then never really got a fair chance since while he's been healthy. Think about that...

A young QB shows real progressed and then has people holding him down. The guy took a pay cut so that he could stick and show his worth and I don't see him letting this opportunity pass.

PS...if Singletary does not start Alex then he needs to be fired...or something



I also don't understand why people are surprised---I'm not surprised at all that Smith played well yesterday. He sucked his rookie season (on a horrible Niners team), so I'll wipe that off his resume. I'll also forget about the games he played with an injured shoulder. Nolan pretty much wrote the book on how to ruin a young NFL QB's career.

Smith has always been accurate. He has always been a mobile guy, able to escape trouble. What he didn't have was leadership skills, and he didn't always go through his progressions too well. He was never "horrible" as so many people make him out to be---not at all. All I saw in Smith was a rookie who had to learn how to be an NFL QB. He hit some major bumps in the road that were not his fault....

.....and now he's finally, in a way, BEGINNING his NFL career.

Start Alex Smith from here on out to the end of the year, whether he sucks it up or not. Let's see what we HAVE in the stable before we think about drafting a QB. What will it hurt? he's the best out of our current three quarterbacks anyway, always has been.

Alex smith, just grew a pair and stepped on the field and showed it.

I think its the beard.



haha yea he really did. Came out and showed why he deserves another chance. Now i understand why people still wanted Alex out there. [/b]
