One thing David Carr is already better than Alex at

btw if you look back at the games where Alex Smith didn't do so good... you'll see two things in common... bad play calling... and bad OL...when he's doing good you'll see good play calling... spread....mixing it up...play action... either enough time with the bad OL to make a play or a quick play where he doesn't need time.

Hell, it already sounds like Carr wants a starting job more than Alex Smith. I wouldn't honestly be surprised if Carr's determination/leadership/play could swoon Singletary into making him a starter, I'm not s**ttin'.


Chances are that Alex Smith WILL fail. If not, he'll be the first number one drafted BUST in NFL history to turn a career around in year 6 on a team. With that said, the REAL question is whether or not Ninerbrass will finally get a clue and find a viable QB for this roster come 2012. Im not dogging David Carr, as we dont know how he'll play under center; but I think it's about time we get some people on this roster with proven track records.

I really hope that Alex is the Qb going into this season. I trully believe that he is our best option at the position. That being said, I am pretty confident in saying that Carr is better than Alex from under center. That may be obvious I don't know, but we all know about Alex's struggles in that area. Carr on the other hand has been under center for his entire career if I'm not mistaken. If Alex struggles for any prolonged period of time maybe we should give Carr a shot. Again I would be very supprised if this happened especially with Alex in year two and Carr learning the offense from scratch.



ugh....niner talk in the offseason................................

Any QB would struggle behind Heitmann. Including Carr.

Alex has taken snaps behind Center w/o incident in the past. So I don't see the issue that people keep pointing to. He had issues his first couple of seasons, but I think that goes to the inexperience of taking a direct snap.

It's pointless to even bring it up anymore imho.

Are you effing kidding me? You're obsessed with what you percieve as the fact Alex Smith will suck, yet you say you're not dogging David Carr and you don't know how he'll play under center?

You haven't seen enough of David Carr? Really? Get help.

May I ask how you came to this conclusion?

Have you read his twitter comments? -He doesn't come off as a dude looking for a complacent 'backup' gig behind 'Tiny Hands' Mcgillicutty.

I'm just saying, whether we like it or not there could be a foreshadowed QB competition in the works (yet again).

So you don't have any evidence to back it up. Just based off of opinion and conjecture like I thought. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that David Carr wants to start, but how can you say that he wants it more than Alex Smith?

Well, what has Alex shown through conjecture thus far than a couple of mumbled words and zero showing of confidence? -I'm sorry, but that heartfelt 'Hollywood' go-getter crap doesn't buy me, his throwing mechanics are still crap and whenever he throws an interception he still forces his head down in shame.

Besides a heart-felt shoulder story, this guy looks like a wet duck when it comes to exuding any sort of attitude/showing of confidence a winner would. No swagger, no direction, no sense of place or hunger. And I know this because the Alex Smith we see now is the same Alex Smith that came out of Utah (same mislead Urban Meyer disaster put through a non-NFL system with the promise that everything he learned in college will make him an NFL superstar).

It's survival of the fittest, sport, leave the meek and weak at the door.

And you can tell that David Carr has all this that Alex doesn't have based off of a few posts on twitter. Right.....

David Carr has proven time and time again that he is a scrub. The jury is still out on Smith. Smith put up better numbers last year than David Carr has ever put up.

not to mention Alex Smith had a horrid line last year...
The thing is, I don't think Alex Smith is any better than David Carr. They are both mediocre QBs, but Carr has better mechanics. All the excuses made for Alex can be made for Carr minus the shoulder injury. Carr wasn't exactly in a good position in Houston and really was never given a shot at success. I always thought he could be a good QB given the proper situation, but unless the O-Line gets it together, we dont have the proper situation for him.

I'd like to see Alex start the season so we can finally see if he makes any progress under the same OC for a second season. If he fails, there are NO MORE EXCUSES and he'll need to be benched, then released.

I have no problem rolling with Carr. We don't have anyone undoubtedly better.
