Is he even average?
To this point; no.
I'm so tired of hearing about this under performer. If he would only do his job on a CONSISTENT basis, but he never has, never, yet, 6 years in going on 7.
It would be nice if we didn't have these threads about this guy. Like we could kind of forget about him and only expect good things from him since he would have already proved himself a consistent performer at a high level as per his draft pos.
You know, like we expect him to do good/great because he does all the time. This, instead of worrying when he will throw the killer pick at the end of the game or lay out yet another WR/TE/Runner with one of those ongoing high and behind throws.
I hope for the best this year; the "make or break" year.
Yeah I feel sorry for his lack of starts. But hey, this just in from B Rows at practice today:
Alex Smith's first throw against the defense was intercepted by Spencer in 7-on-7. Smith was slightly off-target for much of practice, throwing a little high and behind receivers.
---- There are other comments about his lack of accuracy today, as always pretty much. Wait though, he hasn't had enough starts.
Hope for the best this year. One of the good things though; Sing will pull players and replace them if they start to blow. Not like Nolan never changing players who don't perform.
