All i know is that if Davis shines against the starters on sunday it should insure us that he could be thrown in at anytime during the season
if Smith faulters witch i honestly think is going to happen he should get the Shaun Hill treatment play a month choke on it & give way (hoping) Nate
i know what Carr can do & thats pretty much nothing but take sacks
& i dont need to see another version of Smith for the remainder of the season
thats why management should really pay attention these next few preseason games & if Davis out plays Carr he should at least be elevated to 2nd string just in case ol El Busto does it again......
I don't think a QB can go into a regular season game with not enough knowledge of the playbook and be successful.
Who knows, maybe he can as did Alex with the repeated seam route to Vernon. Seemed like that was Alex's only successful play done a hundred times.
Just like Smith this is his second season under Raye's offense so i think Davis is on the same learning curve as Smith its not like its impossible for a Rookie or second year vet to come into a real game situation & be successful it has been done pleanty of times
yeah we all have heard that hes still Raw but so what without reps he cant shed that label
but look at Smith a 6 year vet & he still plays Raw at times
but that doesnt mean that Davis will take as long as him to progress
if anything i think if you compare Davis & Smith's 1st season Davis is way ahead in development even if he didnt play a down last season & Smith did during his rookie year Smith just looked lost everytime he set foot on the field Davis always looks comfortable when he gets a chance to hit the field
all am asking is a fair shot for Davis if he is capable to play solid against the starters he should get a fair shot to at least be Smith back up
by the way that Smith down the seem pass to Davis is Smith ONLY signature throw without that pass down the middle he would of been gone already
Davis salvaged Smith career with the niners at least one more season
