Hey Joecool. You are always clamoring for a new QB. Just who do you suggest we get? If a free agent, will he be willing to come here? If a draftee, who, and are you sure he will play better than Alex?
I am not clamoring for a new QB. I just want to bring to light that all of the things that were said when JTO was playing and when Hill were playing could be said when Alex Smith plays.
If it isn't 3 and outs as Smith is similar to Hill, it's turnovers as Smith is similar to JTO. I just want to point out the facts and uncover blindness and uncover hypocrites.
Oh wait, Smith threw for 3 TDs, well, JTO was putting up some good passing numbers also.
The one thing no QB is doing that Hill did was win and no one can discount that.
Everyone needs to man up and admit that the QB position has not improved and if you truly think it has, well then I wonder how JTO could have performed without Martz I don't care about turnovers attitude. At least he threw for a 300 yard game.
Also, about the offensive line: seems like TEN OL sucked when Collins was in and now it's miraculously better.
A QB makes a huge difference on how "well" an OL blocks. A QB can hide a lot of OL problems.
MIN OL pass blocking was near the bottom until Favre came in...
We can go on forever but you all want to make excuses for these players when the answer is right in front of you.
What haven't we had in the past 6 years?
-------An adequete QB, an average QB...hell... a QB that's not in the bottom 5.
