I don't know man, I've been defending and supporting Smith for the longest time. It's pretty obvious that he just isn't an accurate QB and completely buckles under pressure. I'm pretty confident this is his final year in a niner uni
A lot of QBs buckle under pressure! Rodgers buckled under pressure last year on the final series against the Cardinals. First he missed Jennings wide open over the middle for what would have been almost a sure TD, and then he got sacked and fumbled away the game. That was a choke job. And no, it isn't a knock against Rodgers. It is just a a testament to the fact that QBs choke under pressure. And what seems to increase the odds of choking is playing for a not so good football team, which is what the 49ers have been for Smith's entire career. And yes, that is fair to say as of today because we just found out our coaches STILL cannot get the plays called in as they should be able to, and are in turn crippling our odds of winning PROFESSIONAL football.
At least Rodgers got his team to the playoffs and scored over 40 points in that game. Alex can't even score a touchdown yet. Rodgers didn't choke in that game either, he got hit by a blitzing corner. And Alex is the primary reason our team has stank the past 5 years.
Alex hasn't even played 5 years, and this statement lies directly in the face of things like Nolan, Martz, Hostler, Kwame Harris, Darrel Jackson, etc.
But keep hating dude. Alex isn't perfect, but you sure like to twist the facts.
