Nothing like a bad day at practice to bring out the Alex Apologists and Alexcusionists. I love the revisionist history in the six pages of this thread.
Statements like: "Alex gets no credit when he looks good."
FACT: Alex has never looked good. Alex has never taken this team to the playoffs. Alex hasn't come close to leading this team to the playoffs. Therefore -- Alex has NEVER looked good. Alex Smith has done a great job at choking in big games (see: at Seattle last year)
Another statement: "Naysayers never give Alex any credit."
FACT: Why should we? What has Alex done? Other than fail miserably that is. Alex doesn't get any credit because he doesn't deserve it. Five losing seasons of football will do that to any fan.
Finally -- we are forced to put up with the new posters on this board -- who derisively refer to us as the "ACP." Wow. Just wow.
I can't tell you how many Alex Apologists and Alexcusionists have come and gone during the past five seasons. The ACP poster is just the latest in a long line of fairweather fans who appear to hold the Smith jockstrap -- and then vanish like a fart in the wind when things inevitably go south -- as they will.
Alex had a bad day in practice? Not news to me. Every player does.
When Alex starts putting in bad games? I would hope there would be no more excuses.
But hope springs eternal.
Dude, relax. It's 1 bad practice at. I can't believe the over-reaction.
