Rate Alex Smith on his QB play

Rate Alex Smith on his QB play

I think that he is our future. It's plane and simple to see that he is a different QB now. You now see him being a leader on the sidelines and his players believe in him. Since he became the starter notice that Gore has had 85 yards or more since. Sing can now get the running game he needs under smith and at the same time having a good passing attack. It is too early to tell weather or not he is our future but i believe that he has the potential to be a top QB in this league. If the offense can get a rythm there is no limit to what simth and gore and davis and crabtree can do. GO NINERS!!!!!!!!!!

For the people that gave him a B, what kind of assessment chart do you use ? Im asuming you have Brady, Manning, and Favre slotted in as an A. Are you telling me that Alex is playing one tier below them at this time ?

C

He's doing alright but nothing that I'm drooling about. He shows signs of getting better but at times he looks like the same old Smith. The OL isn't helping one bit either + Raye so that's why I'm giving him a C.

He needs to show he can take this team and win a game against a GOOD team, regardless of our s**tty OL and our idiot of OC. Franchise QB's do it all the time when facing adversity, I would love for him to do that.

I gave him a C. His play has been pretty average since that 2nd half showdown against the Texans
C

Pros -

He's showing a new found pocket presence, some leadership, and is developing a rapport with MC and VD.

Cons -

Still locking on to one WR, taking coverage sacks, and is overthrowing some easy completions.

I saw some replays of the Bengals and Steelers in the fourth quarter just now. The Bengals brought the heat and Big Ben couldn't get his feet set. As a result, he made bad throws. I remember that Super Bowl a couple of years ago: it was really the first time I could remember that I saw Brady under duress for an entire game and he didn't look like Tom Brady. An offensive line is going to play a big part in how a QB looks. Am I saying that Alex is comparable to Ben and Brady? No, but what I am saying without adequate protection they don't look like themselves either.

I don't know if Smith will shine if this line improves. I am a little worried that he still seems to hesitate and not anticipate. But I do know that the offensive line of the Niners hasn't really helped the throwing game of the Niners for many years. I do know that Alex can do some intriquing things. He can make all of the throws, hit receivers and do things with his feet. It just seems that some of you want him him to fail. Yet if he can succeed this would be the best thing possible for the Niners. Here is to hoping he does.
