If we go 1-7 we should let Nate Davis finish the year as the Starting QB

The only reason those two got their chance is because the starting QBs went down with injury not because they outplayed them in the preseason or won a QB competition.

Alex Smith - Fail
David Carr - Already a bust
Troy Smith - unknown
Nate Davis - unknown

I'd rather take my chance on the two unknowns than give the other two failures another opportunity to prove why they are failures. Past performance is usually indicative of future success and people like Alex and Carr will fail again and again. They are losers.

Plus, Nate has shown more potential in his 1st two years and than Alex has in 6.

But I'm not surprised that many of the stans are afraid of Nate. They hate every QB not named Alex and their opinions on a QB are simply irrelevant to me because they continue support a loser like Alex. Why should I trust your judgement on QB play when you think Alex is good? You are like the woman that keeps going back to the abusive husband in hopes that they will change. In the end, they won't, and the only person would looks like an idiot is the victim.

And Mike Johnson likes Nate, but what does he know? He's probably dyslexic too.

Btw, anybody figure out what learning disability Alex suffers from? Its probably more like a talent disability. I sure hope they discover it for future generations.

Man this is one ignorant post, Davis has shown nothing but a lack of ability to understand a playbook, lack of pocket presence, though with our offensive lines recently that can be easily excused. I can understand if you do not like Smith, but to say Davis has shown anything except the ability to not improve his play is just so ignorant as to not really be worthy of discussion.

Let me tell you Memphis, I actually like Davis, but please, when he cant even put the time into getting better on his own, that said all i need to know. Your a grown ass man, and if your vying for a position, then your gonna eat sleep and breathe football, even in the offseason. But he decided to chill, and think that just because he does have intangibles that it's gonna automatically transfer onto the field.i.e. Crabtree in the pre-season.

The coaches wanted him before Carr, and he didnt show anything other than that one big throw to Ginn i think this season. Like Davis or not, give me a QB, that has at least Alex's work ethic with the Talent that Davis has. He has a disability so u'd think that would make him work even more, with that let me show u what u missed out on mentality.

Lets see what he does this offseason, then i'll talk about Davis. Cuz if he gets into the game once again, at ANY POINT THIS SEASON. Rest assured our season is over, so it wont matter then, but i'll still watch and support cuz im a niner fan first.

I liked he kid too, until I found out he doesn't care enough to work his ass off. I can think of no excuse for that, and given he has a learning disability, he should have worked even harder. Who knows, maybe being passed over by every other team in the NFL when we cut him will wake his ass up and maybe he turns himself into a professional caliber quarterback.
13 pages about a player who was passed up by 32 teams thru nearly 5 rounds of the draft, never broke 3rd string when drafted, released to waivers after 1 season, then passed up by 31 other teams in the NFL (and I guess the UFL for that matter??) when he was free for the taking, and now on the P.S.??

wow, 13 whole pages. why isn't this thing locked up by now??

And where did this gem of a story originate? Just because Sing said he didn't know if Davis put in the effort? This is the same Sing that didn't know there was an issue with the plays getting to the QB on time until after the first regular season game. This is the same Sing that said on Monday that Raye would be the OC for the remainder of the season. This is the same Sing that on Tuesday fired Raye. You're seriously going to take his word on how well Davis prepared? Hell, I've been on the Smith hater side for god knows how long, and after seeing all the crap going on with Sing and Raye, I'm starting to think that maybe Smith is a better QB than what he's shown and the coaching has just made it impossible for him to perform. And if that's the case, then isn't it also very possible that Nate Davis actually did put in significant work in the off-season, that he actually did know the offense as well as a third string QB can know it with the limited reps, and that he just couldn't perform on the field because of the same problems that Smith has been facing? I mean, if you don't actually get the play call into your headset, how are you going to call the right play in the huddle or the right protections at the line?

In fact, I'd argue that while Nate Davis didn't perform great in that game that caused Sing to throw him under the bus, that bad game was better than some of Smith's games.

Now having said that, I'm not sure how Davis moves from the practice squad to the number 2 very easily, even if he does what he needs to in practice. I just don't see the HC allowing that to happen, as it would seem like he is admitting that he was wrong when he threw Davis under the bus. Maybe that's an overly pessimistic view, but from the reports coming out...and comparing those rumors/accusations to the play on the field, it's hard to discount the possibility that Sing is either clueless or once he thinks he knows something, he's too stubborn to make the necessary changes or corrections. I suppose if firing Raye really was all his decision (which I doubt), then maybe there is hope for the 49ers in general. I think the only hope for Davis is if Johnson is on his side, works with him closely, and is able to alter Sing's possibly unjustified view of him.
