Alex Smith is the new Steve Deberg. For you kids who missed little Stevie -- here's the deal.
DeBerg came to the 49ers and immediately assumed the starting position and like the gunslinger he was -- provided an immediate jolt of excitement. He hit multiple receivers with multiple passes.
And yet -- at the end of the game -- he'd either miss a key pass or throw a killer pick and it was "game over pal."
Bill Walsh would later describe him as a QB who was just good enough to hand us one crushing loss after another.
Alex Smith = Steve DeBerg
Sure -- you're going to see signs of brilliance out of Alex. He's gonna hit some amazing passes. Receivers are going to have big days.
But the end result will be another loss. It will always be another loss.
