McNabb didn't even mention Alex Smith. The article had Alex Smith responding/clarifying to Jon Gruden's comments regarding what Alex Smith had reportedly told him, specifically that he was struggling with the deep ball. Nobody in that article said Smith was a bum and can't play.

The WZ is making me dislike Nate Davis before he has even played one snap under center. I need to quit reading these asinine posts about him. Who are these people who want to see him play against first string NFL defenses when he hasn't taken snaps with the offense in practice??? Have these people no football knowledge? It is painfully obvious that they do not. "Let's see what we HAVE" or "Smith is garbage, lets throw in our inexperienced 5th round draft pick with no experience running the offense and ride him to the playoffs." Give me a break. These must be Raider fans...
OK, if ever there was a misplaced rant, this is it. Yes there are numerous threads about Nate Davis and people here who have voiced their opinions about starting him sooner rather than later. But I do not see anything in this OP coming anywhere near that. This thread is, or at least was, about another NFL QB that followed Davis' last college year, who thinks he has a bright future
in the league, and who stated he would like to train with Davis.
I've looked at the original post about a dozen times, and read the article over and over again looking for it. Even shined the black light looking for it in invisible ink and used my Ovaltine decoder ring to see if there were any hidden messages in there. Nope, not one reference about Smith being garbage, not one demand to bench Smith now to have him replaced by Davis. Not one hint of a comment about Nate Davis leading us to the playoffs this year. Give me a break. This is a perfectly legit reference to an article about the potential future of a quarterback that is on our roster. That kind of stuff almost makes me want to become a Raider fan. They may behave in a more civilized manner.
