I post this in the QB 2010 thread but it seems to apply here aswell.
There are basically 3 different types of 49ers fans in regard to Alex Smith
1- Every bad play is Alex’s fault. Everything good play is because of someone else, and would have been a lot better if Alex hadn’t screwed it up
2- Alex has had enough time and hasn’t shown that he’s got what it takes to be a winner in the NFL. Let’s cut ties and move on.
3- Alex has had the worst set of circumstances a young QB could have for his first few years. He is 25 and still could be a good NFL QB.
2&3 are rational stances in the discussion of Alex Smith. IMO most of the board has one of these two opinions
1 is made up of crazy, crazy people that stir the pot and keep the rest of us on our toes with their mindless post.
I am more version 2.5. I do not think he will ever be a "great" QB, even with a new Oline. I do agree he was put into some really bad situations early on, but could be a decent QB. The problem is, am I willing to wait another year just to see if he can even be a "good" QB? I am not so sure...
well said rational stance...
