Niners sign Troy Smith

Someone needs to tell the niner coaches to forget about the Taser.

Stop trying to find ways to make it work! It NEVER will!!!

But to the point, Troy Smith has really neither bad nor good stats to say he is any better/worse than Davis. I think Davis had some real potential, but if he is as lazy as Sing suggests, then it is probably best that he is replaced with another QB...

Troy Smith's career stats:
G QBRat Comp Att Pct Yds Y/G Y/A TD Int
14 79.7 48 89 53.9 558 39.9 6.3 3 1
Rush Yds Y/G Avg TD Sack YdsL Fum FumL
29 109 7.8 3.8 2 5 30 3 2

It's not a bad show, I suppose, but I don't see the hubbub about it. I'll only watch it if my lady asks me to with her. I'm surprised the incredible age range it captures when it comes to viewers. People in their late teens to people in their late 50's seem to love it.

But on to the topic at hand... Troy Smith.

Troy is an athletic guy who I actually wouldn't be too uncomfortable with as the #2. He's a good number three in case of emergency.
Definetly an upgrade...
I've yet to see a link saying Smith signed
hell yeah
I'm stoked about this pickup. I watched Smith play several games in the preseason since I live outside of Baltimore and often go to their preseason games for free. He has a much better chance at succeeding in this game than Davis did. Remember Troy was going to be the starter before a fluke sickness brought in this nobody named Flacco.

I'm not going to say he's the savior of our team or any bulls**t like that, but this is an upgrade IMO.

49ers Sign QB Troy Smith

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Monday the signing of QB Troy Smith to a one-year deal. In order to make room for Smith on the roster, the 49ers have waived QB Nate Davis.

Smith (6-0, 217), formerly a fifth-round selection (174th overall) by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2007 NFL Draft, has appeared in 14 games (2 starts) during his three-year career. He has completed 48 of 89 pass attempts for 558 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a quarterback rating of 79.7. Smith, who is 1-1 as a starter, has also registered 109 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

Smith, a 26-year old from Cleveland, OH, starred collegiately at Ohio State, where he won the 2006 Heisman Memorial Trophy and led the Buckeyes to the 2007 BCS National Championship Game. He was also the first starting quarterback in the school’s history to win three straight games against Michigan.

Smith attended Glenville High School in Cleveland, OH, where he played alongside his future Ohio State and 49ers teammate WR Ted Ginn Jr. The Buckeye was also a college teammate of 49ers T Alex Boone (2005-06).

Is that enough links, Matt?
Who the hell is Troy Smith? he any good?
Good move. If you only know a fraction of the playbook after a full season, you should be bounced.

He's Reggie Smith's older brother.

He is Justin Smith's uncle, and Alex Smith's nephew.
