What would you give these guys....

Schaub, Cutler, Rivers, Sanchez, McNabb, Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, Orton, Vick and Ryan
?????

By many of your standards, you should be giving nearly 50% of the QB's an A every week.

That doesn't seem like you are being critical enough.

But of course this is Homerism, I am sure many of you will find many many faults in the guys above listed game 2 performances

I could give a Rat's furry ass about the other guys Danimal. I would still give Alex the A based on what he did all game long.

Without that pesky Delay of Game penalty brought about by Davis's loss of focus Alex would have once again carved up the Saints like a turkey.

ANd this is not Homerism on my part. This is Smith not doing this before over a whole game and imho, it was indeed worthy of an A. Since there is no -/+ grade in the options then I gotta give him an A. If there were I would take into consideration the 2 turnovers and downgrade for them even though in this case shat happens and give him an A- overall. Since there isn't, anything less than an A is not indicative of what he did on the field.

~Ceadder

Not giving a Rats furry ass about how well your competitors do is EXACTLY how you get on a 7 year playoff drought.

So maybe you should start caring

I edited my original post and now listed 13 QB's who played better than Alex last week, at least debatably or statistically speaking. And 10 of those guys won their games.

Thats the problem with Alex supporters. I have been saying this for years. You guys don't pay enough attention to the other QB's in the world. There are, were and will be better options for the Niners. That is if you can let go. Which the Niners can't, and some fans can't. Which is why they deserve to lose.

The goal is to outplay those other guys you don't give a rats furry ass about.


Yeah, we've been losing for years because fans like Ceadder need to start caring about other teams' QBs. This is one of the least intelligent things ever.

lol, you can either guess who I was implying should have cared more...cough John York, Jed York, Mike Nolan, Mcloughlan, Sing, Trent cough........or you could just keep thinking THAT is the least intelligent thing ever.

Have fun with your decision

no, you were clearly attacking "Smith Supporters"

The int's cost the game and they were both his fault.

When will the hatred end? Now ur just being a/an ______< insert adjective here.

Just call it like I see it.


Bottom line is that we lost and boy wonder still threw two Int's.

When your vision is clouded by bias and hatred then it's difficult to get a grasp on anything. It's also difficult to be taken seriously.

Breeze had more blocked/tipped passes than Smith last night. I'll pin 1 INT on him but the other was a an excellent play by the D. Kinda like Moss's excellent one handed grab to save his QB's bacon on an overthrown TD pass. Was that really a great throw by Brady?

For the sake of argument I'll give you your 2 INT's. YOu say that's what cost us the game. Okay then if you reserve the right to take away those then I reserve the right to take away all of the other f-ups in the game. VD's lack of concentration to open up the 2nd half, Baas's errant hike and Lee's punt afterwards, Delanie's fumble in the Red Zone and Adam's fumble. You take away those f-ups and this game wouldn't have been that close.

Keep it real, friend. You just look foolish and prideful at this point.

I'm not giving Alex an A but he deserves a B. His play even with the 2 INTs was good enough for us to win.


We will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

It was good entertaining game thats all I really ask for these days.


Go Niners, get the W in KC. !!!!!

I thought he made a very smart play when he slapped the ball out of the end zone for a safety instead of trying to fall on it. If I counted right, he started 4 drives inside his 20 that went inside their 30. That's very hard to do against a good team like the Saints. Delanie Walker F, Philip Adams F, David Bass D, Alex Smith A or B, I won't quibble.

I would give Baas a C+ because of the bad snap. He did a very good job adjusting blocking assignments and did a good job of controlling a quick and big NT in Ayodele. Take away the bad snap and he was an A.

OK, I can agree with that. Bass has done a good job of keeping the top of the pocket from collapsing and has not taken dumb penalties. Too bad he chose such a crucial moment for his rocket snap. The O-line was a real bright spot that augurs well for the rest of the season.

the first one, yes.

the second one was nothing more than a great defensive play. you are blind as a bat if you can't see that.


Its the QBs job to find the proper passing lanes.
Not entirely. It is the OL's job to create passing lanes in which to pass just as it is their job to create running lanes for the runner.

Unlike a runner who can bounce an inside run to the outside if the opening is there, the QB has much less room to shift while standing in the pocket.

Yes true but it is the QB's responsibility to make sure he put enough arch on the ball so a jumping linebacker can not touch it.
Go look at the film. Dunbar SKIED to reach that pass. Crabtree was even jumping up in anticipation. You can't arch a ball on a short timing play like that.

At some point you just have to give the defense credit for disguising the coverage very well and making a big-time play. Staley was doing his best to stay engaged but Dunbar made a great play.

We can blame Smith for the first pick on a bad throw, but the second one was just good defense.

Alexcuses, Alexcuses is all here for this loser of a QB we have.


I dont care what the blocking scheme was, its the QB's responsibility to make sure that ball does not get hit like that.

Ever ask yourself how come stuff like this always happens to Alex.

troll much?

Why am I a troll because I think Smith sucks ?
I give him a B. He played well, had that 1 mistake pass to gore that was costly. But what i really liked was he showed some emotion and leadership. He was telling people where to go and what not. And im not sure if it was after one of the picks or a fumble but they panned to him on the sideline and he was pissed, not just satnding there with a blank look. It was nice to see. Hopefully he finishes this season off great.

Somewhere between A and B, how about a B+..

One of his best games to date.. He showed a lot on the final drive

The haters and trolls will of course be panning his performance and turn a simple question (how did Alex do last night against the Saints) into a referendum on Alex and how we should have drafted Aaron Rogers.

I believe thats called trolling.
its kind of sad that we expect our players to be absolutely perfect and our opponents to be total chumps. There's a lot of great players in the league making great plays every game. Sometimes those plays are made against your team. Why do we have to blame our players instead of praising the other teams players? That's just dumb.

Dunbar made a great play on the deflection, Colston made a great play on that last long reception. Not a whole lot you can do but give credit to the world champs there.

How is it trolling, this thread was about grading Smith's performance.

I gave the guy a fair grade, I gave him a C. It was definitely not a A or B performance.


Some people just get their feeling hurts because they have a man crush on him.
