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.
Read MM's thoughts about Smith. Matt M. has only been to every practice, game, and in the locker room since Smith started in the league.
I would think he may know a little more than you about Smith
You think a reporter is going to know more than the average fan? Seriously? Right then. So, Glenn Dickey, who covered every 49er game and practice for decades was right on the money when he labled Joe Montana a bust?
I see that Alex is off to yet another scintillating start. Look for Shaun Hill in relief at halftime. The Niners cannot afford to let another game slip away.
