Niners sign Troy Smith

If he can learn the playbook, then this is clearly an upgrade. I liked Davis well enough, and I would have liked to see him become a good option for us, but this team is ready to contend this year. We need to fill our roster with guys that can contribute now. Davis had his chance to learn a playbook all last season and over this entire offseason (what else did he need to be doing, really). He blew it. He didn't know his protection calls, he didn't seem to know where his teammates were on the field, he struggled to get the plays called, and he made too many boneheaded moves. He could have immersed himself in the playbook like is expected of any other NFL QB, but he chose not to, and this is the harvest he will reap from that decision.

Troy Smith is more ready to go into a game and call the right protections, hand the ball to Frank and check down a few passes.

Who the hell is Troy Smith? he any good?

Previous Heisman winner, was slated to start in Baltimore before he got sick and Flacco took over. He's been sitting behind him ever since. He's showed decent ability in the small amount he's played. Much smarter than Davis was.

what do you mean by is he any good? If he was that great wouldn't he have been on a team. He's a 3rd QB, how great can you be?

A post like the one Janitor replied with is the kind of answer I was looking for!

Nate got himself on Singletary's permanent sh!t list. There was attitude and work ethic, but also once you are on Singletary's bad side you are done. A personality thing. I don't think Singletary liked him and I don't know that that there is anything that could make the coach like him. Nate Davis will likely be successful somewhere else. I don't know why they signed Troy Smith. The "Wildcat" or "Tazer" is gimmicky junk. I hope they hang on to Jarrett Brown.
What is making you guys think we signed him to run the taser?
