We are a good team with a bad QB

Was it well when Snydey gave an end a free run at SMith which resulted in a fumble? Was it well when Smith was wrapped up at the same time that he got the ball from the center?

All QBs have bad games, you dont' bench them for it....we'll never be good again if you do that.
I think that we are an average team with a below average quarterback.
We are NOT - NOT a good team.

When you're rotating 4 players in 2 positions (ROG, ROT), YOU'RE NOT A GOOD TEAM.

END OF STORY.

Except he's had more bad games than good...Something you can't say about hill and his winning career record. (10-5 if you're keeping track)
i agree we need more consistent QB play and we will really start winning some games. But alot of the blame in terms of the overall offenses play and the turnovers Sunday were on the OL.

It's time we realize that Smith is simply not the answer. I think Shaun Hill is a great QB, but ultimately a great backup and not a sufficient starter. We need a QB because this is a QB league. What scares me is that we waste the years we have on the D on this bad QB and not allow ourselves to become a good team because of that. Bears and Ravens are teams that come to mind. Teams that couldn't get to the next level because of a lack at QB. The Texans were in a similar spot. When a good QB comes to a team the whole dynamic changes. Some QBs can function in systems, but unfortunately we don't have McDaniels to create a QB friendly system for us, and will need someone who has legitimate NFL talent. Smith is not clutch, he can't pick defenses apart, he's not a great leader and his athletic ability, while good, is nothing to write home about. Most of all, his accuracy is lacking. Here are some options

FA:
Just like the Saints did with Brees. Is there a good FA QB on the market? No way, there never is anymore.

Trade:
The one name that comes to mind is Kevin Kolb. I think he's a good QB, whose learned from one of the better QB experts in the game. He may be in a similar position that Shaub or Cassle were in.

Draft:
This seems like the obvious choice. Claussen, Tebow, Locker, Bradford, Snead, Pike, McCoy. One of these guys will be good. Not all, but at least one. Lets identify him and use our 2 first round picks wisely

Any other suggestions? We already have a QB on the roster? Blockbuster trade of all our picks for a starter? Hope Hassleback gets cut, etc. etc.??? (BTW, I just brought up these last 3 as alternatives, but clearly think all are terrible options).

(Bold) Can anyone sound more dumber?! Is there such a thing as a great QB that will never be good enough to start? Makes no damn sense!!!

Oh yeah...Hill is not great. None of our QBs are, but Ill take Davis or Smith over Hill for the simple fact that they can throw the ball, which is a "QB's" main job!

So according to you....if we change QBs everthing will be fixed?

Just another person pointing the finger at Alex. Such an easy shot...but this OL is HORRENDOUS. YOU CAN PUT JESUS CHRIST BACK THERE AND HE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO WORK A MIRACLE!!!! And with so many 3 and outs, its wearing out our D. And to add to it...all the injuries. And then there is some questionable calls at OC. Some personnel moves that are head scratchers....ETC....ETC.

Sorry guy....but there is much more problems than just changing the QB.

Our D has been anything but spectacular in the past 4 games. Our offensive line has to be fixed or you are just wasting time no matter what QB you put back there. Do you not understand football?

some of these guys just do not get it, the generation of instant gratification just doesn't get that it takes time to build a team. The single biggest problem with this team is the offensive line...period.

Instant gratification? Nah, the 49ers have sucked for most of this decade now. I'm not saying bench Smith or anything, because they don't have alternatives right now. But if this team looks about the same at the end of the year, and they do not make aggressive moves in looking for a better starting QB during the offseason, then I am afraid to say they are probably a lost cause under the current ownership. That would be an odd case of denial to yet again pretend like you can win in this league without a stud QB.

Can't blame this game on the o-line. They weren't horrendous. they gave hime time he just takes a while lol. THis is a lack of a good qb loss. Smith didn't even give Crabrtee the time of day this afternoon, wtf!!

From MM Twitter:

Don't blame 49ers O-line for Sunday's loss. Protection held up well despite array of Titans' blitzes and 51 quarterback dropbacks.

Oline wasn't as bad as it has been. Still Smith wasn't getting the normal 3 seconds needed to pass.

don't forget about our kick and punt returners...they suck too. We need a playmaker at this position badly.
