Pass on McChoke!!
7 years no playoffs, I would take a playoff choker in a New York minute right now.
I know u hate Smith, But seriously u think Mcnabb would come in and learn a complete different system and just automatically take us deep into the playoffs?
He cant win it all with the eagles, what makes u think he can even close with the niners?
He has been on some of the best talented/ most explosive teams in the past decade, not to mention in one system his entire career.
AND HE CHOKES!
Call me crazy, but I'd rather have our QB getting a chance to choke in the playoffs rather than in week 15 of yet another 7-9 season.
McNabb's always played behind really good OLine's dude. He's always played with a genius HC/OC. He'd get killed if he came here and he wouldn't be playing with the WCO anymore. We did better than 7-9 with Smith last year, not MUCH better but it was kind of a building/transition year for the whole team. MadDog even explained that it would happen before last season, that we'd go about .500 because we had alot of guys just getting their feet wet. We finally have guys playing with some chemistry and building something and Smith is finally showing something and we want to throw it all away for a guy like McNabb who is old and will get broken in half? Dude that sucks.
Not true. Smith didn't get "killed" last year after he took over (look at the numbers). There was actually a stretch where he was hardly touched, and when he was sacked, it was due mostly to good coverage.
I'm not saying we have a great line by any stretch, but having a threat at QB (someone who can read defenses, know where the blitz is coming from and make the right choices) will reduce our sack totals even more.
I'm not convinced that Smith has what it takes to play playoff-caliber football. I just wouldn't take that chance. For the right price, I'd rather go with experience than put my hopes in Alex Smith. That's just me.
