What a waste of his talent level. How many times does he have to slow down his route or come back to make a play ? If we keep Alex at QB, Crabs will bail ship as soon as he gets a chance....
I agree, Crabs and all the receivers always have to adjust to Smith's weak ass throws. He has the potential to be the best in the NFL. He needs a better QB
Was this a bash Smith thread??
Can't say the two don't correlate
Why don't the both of you punks go suck a big one, Alex Smith has had absolutely no stability to learn under. Not to mention butting heads with his head coach and a busted shoulder for two years to boot.
Now if Bradford is still available at 13 I say take him, but Alex looked good and showed a lot of arm strength in the second half of 2009. If we can acquire one a top shelf OL (preferably guard) with #13 & a very good DL at #16 we'll be looking good. Not to mention free agency Def players hitting the market this year (Peppers, A.Thomas,Briggs). I say keep Alex, draft players/positions that contribute during there rookie year and we'll be a top 6-8 team next year.
If we go looking to trade up to draft one of the top two Qb's it'll just set us back another 2-4 years before we get to the playoffs. Also, good free agent Qb's are too expensive and hard to come by (once a decade), and Drew Brees already leads the Saints!
First of all your choice of words for your first post are inappropriate. Second, which is more expensive a quality free agent or other QB or being a perennial loser? I think being a loser cost much more in the long run.
Third...ALex's Smith's shortcomings are his own. He is a man and to be a QB in the NFL it takes more of a man than Smith has shown to be. He isn't even a quality leader. Peace.
No offense nf918, not that I agree with his choice of words, but you two inspire alot of the negativity that comes your way.
We can see with our own eyes the issues involved are not as cut and dry as you two make them out to be.
You KNOW these issues.
Are they ALL the fault of Alex Smith?
If you say yes then you deserve the negativity that you inspire.
If you can admit that it's equally the fault of all involved then alot of people wouldn't be so quick to criticize you.
