I've been lurking the zone for a while. I would post something once in a while if I feel like it but most of the time, I'm here to just read/browse the site regarding niners, NFL and pretty much everything (Parking Lot).
We've all seen what Alex Smith can do and he had his moments (Seattle game in 2006, 4 fourth quarter comebacks, etc. to name a few). I want to see him succeed and wish him all the best but I don't think he is the answer to our QB situation. You can say all the excuses you want but there is no denying that he is just not a good QB. He is back to the Alex Smith we all remember from his rookie year - fumbles, interceptions, locking on receivers, inaccurate. You can argue that the interceptions are not all his fault but it is what it is - Turn Overs. I don't see urgency at all, and I don't see any fire in his eyes. He seems scared all the time for whatever reason. You can also argue that we should give him time because he was out or not playing for almost two years, but Vince Young did alright. They are in a very similar situation. When VY is focus to just playing football, he is a winner. It is such a frustrating time to be a niner fan right now. I am not jumping the ship, I am just frustrated.
I say we give Nate Davis a shot to see what we have in him. Our season is lost and we will not make the playoff unless Kurt Warner suffer some serious injury in his next game and is out for the rest of the season. If Nate Davis is the future, we can use those two first round pick to get a stud safety and OL. We can then fill the other spots, pass rusher, backup RB, more OL, etc. Just my two cents.
