Brett Favre struggled against AZ last week on Prime Time, are we going to start questioning FAVRE?? Warner was off last night aswell, probably more than Smith!! are we going to start questioning Warner??
Point is, we arent going to question Favre nor Warner, they are both proven!!! SB champs, consistent, and hall of famers!!..
Alex Smith.. Smith was off the first drive, he started off 2-7 i believe. He was inconsitent for most of the night, BUT came through when it COUNTED.. Smith, on probably his worse game of the season, behind the TEN game.. still managed 2td and out shined Warner.. Smith has been the first 9er QB since JEFF GARCIA to post 4 straight 2td games, thats saying something, and Smith hasnt quite peaked yet, although he has defintely gotten better..
Breaking down smith..
1. ARM STRENGTH- His arm is NOT elite, but i would say ABOVE average. He can get it down field with some time and put in on a receiver with time
2. ACCURACY- This is where Smith has been INCONSISTENT, but there is promise there THIS YEAR, and hopefully going foward. Right now, I would say his accuracy is AVERAGE at best, BUT improving..
3. LEADERSHIP- Smith has shown DRASTIC improvent in this dept. He lacked it his first 4 years, but CMON.. Different OC, you get HURT, your HC throws you uner the BUS!! Pretty hard to over come, but Smith is getting there..
If Rex can take his team to a super bowl, I believe Smith can.. If Brad Johnson can WIN a superbowl, I believe Smith can. IF DILFER can win a superbowl, I believe Smith can..
Lets put the pieces together this next season.. focus on oline, PR/KR down field threat (REGGIEE ) and maybe a playmaker in the seondary and pass rusher via draft or FA.. we will turn the corner, FAST!
