I think we cut the wrong QB !

I like Nate Davis, I think he has potential, I am a fan not a coach who sees Davis every day. I am not Davis's boss, I don't hand him assignments and see wether he completes them or not. As much as I know about football (it seems like a lot to me) the coaching staff knows more.

Davis was electrifying; at times. As much as I thought of Davis it was clear to me he didn't get it. Their are some QBs, Michael Vick for one who call the play wait for it to break down then they improvise. Davis LOOKED (remember I'm just a fan) like this was his style.

David Carr looks pretty bad, but I am willing to bet he out hustled Davis, and spent more time studying, or things might be different. Carr as bad as he looks, must be making the right reads, the right pre-snap adjustments, and setting up his blocking accordingly, he simply sucks once the ball is snapped. I would assume that the coaching staff would rather have the play run poorly rather than not at all, this makes coaches feel like they are in charge.

Troy (new) Smith has loads of upside, and raw talent, if not for an injury he would have started over the rookie Flaco. He already has a basic understanding of our offense and will undoubtedly pass Carr on the depth chart. He may not pass him this season, but he will pass him.

Troy Smith is a real threat to Alex Smith come next season, this puts Alex on the hot seat, and gives the us an option should Alex choose to leave.(imagine Alex blowing up this year and leaving)

Nate Davis is special mostly to us, the Niner Fans. Nate Davis is not a household name, if Nate were tradable (is that a word tradable?) We might have moved him. I don't think (I don't really) that many teams are looking to add him and we will be able to move him to the PS.

Coaches get a grace period of 2-3 seasons to turn a team around, Singletary is in his second (I don't count his interim season). Sing can't afford to have too many projects on the team (one of Nolans big problems), he needs winners now. He is not all that impressed with Davis or Carr, so Troy makes so much sense I can't believe I am still typing.

So the nobody could make a serous argument that the team is not stronger. Nobody can make a real argument that the team is not better prepared for the season, and well set for the future. After all, think back to just last year, S. Hill, A. Smith, and N. Davis really that was our stable of QB's. I for one Like A. Smith, New Smith and Carr!

Given that Smith willingly took a pay cut to stay a Niner, I think his heart is in San Francisco. Don't really think if he is not here next year it will be because he chose not to be. I have a feeling he is going to improve this year and be a top 10-15 qb.

I hope your right on both counts, but if you job (Sings does) depended on it would you hedge you bet by adding a QB who could be ready to start sooner rather than later (T.Smith v Davis)?

I think Smith was added because he knew the system, he also doesn't have a learning disability like Davis.

not only does he not have a learning disability, he Smith works his ass off, and is everything that Singletary likes. Sing also said he wouldn't mind Smith pushing Carr for the back up role just because he wants to promote competition and work ethic within the locker room no matter where on the depth chart you are.

The word "potential" has been used way to much in this thread.

lol.

On the contrary, I think it shows Singletary wants three experienced QB's on his roster. Potential only goes so far...yes, Davis has the arm...and some playmaking abilities. But, Coach was right, he hasn't applied himself to really learn the offense...Nate even admitted it. Troy Smith is also an athletic QB, but he has 14 games under his belt and some decent stats. He played at Ohio St, so was up against superior talent. Coach already has a QB project on the PS in Jarret Brown...he didn't want one on his active roster.

you have to be joking, you think we should have cut Carr and instead of Davis? Then we would be one play away from having no qb's on our team knowing the offence! Good thinking

Exactly! If Alex went down, what could Nate do? He can't remember the plays, or the protections, and we would get killed. What would he do if the qb's mike went out? What's he going to do in the huddle then? At least Carr knows the plays and protection calls. Dude was lazy about his job and now he doesn't have it. You don't miss your water till the well runs dry...
I'm just glad the scientific community has already diagnosed Nate's learning disability.

Hopefully, they discover whatever disability Alex suffers from and can help future kids who aspire to be NFL QBs.

His only disability is idiots like you, who think they are smarter than the ones who ACTUALLY play the game. AS a side note he graduated from a 4 year school in two years. How'd you do?
I am one of the biggest Alex haters here. I've been hating on Alex since year two of his niner career. I know Alex is more ready than Nate Davis and will out perform David Carr.

But, WTF is Singletary thinking? Nate had the most upside of any of the three current niner QB's. Troy Smith is a black version of Shaun Hill. Troy has a serious case of the noodle arm.

I don't know exactly when this happened. But it seems like the niners are destined to become mediocre at best for the next several years.

Here is a prediction for everybody here. Sing's days are numbered as a head coach or his ability to cut players will be removed. Alex will play one year past Sing's tenure as a coach. The niners are now three years away from any resemblance of decent QB play.

yea! let's base the future of the niners on our backup qb's, that's it!
