As I sit here I am truly amazed as the two personalities of Alex Smith. If I didn't know any better I would think he had a bad case of, "Duel Personality Disorder".
I based my opinion after watching the Texans game and todays' game.
In the Texans game Alex looked completely confident, accurate, quick, decisive, and like a solid veteran QB (besides the last pass that resulted in an interception). It seemed as though that the 49ers perhaps made a great decision by keeping him.
Then came today's game. What a deference a day makes! Alex literality seemed like the old Alex.
Telegraphing his throws, not displaying confidence, held the ball too long, turnovers, It seem as though, right before our eyes he mutated back to the old Alex Smith again. You can see it in his body language, and in his eyes.
Why? Why? Why?
Perhaps its a combination of coaching, play calling, Alex's psyche. Possibly what we seen in the Texans game is just a once in a lifetime amazing half for Alex Smith - to never be duplicated again.
