I understand that there are Alex Smith fans on this board who want to sink or swim with Alex at QB. Wins and losses do not matter. What matters is statistics and whether Alex is behind center.
0-6 will be the ONLY stat that matters. And it will be squarely on Alex Smith's shoulders.
Wait.... so Smith is the entire reason that we are losing in your opinion?
What matters is WINS. WINS are a team effort. Always. Though the degree of the team effort can vary.
The NT "hater" mantra seems to be that when the team wins, it is IN SPITE of Smith, but when it loses, it is BECAUSE of Smith.
All I ask is for consistency. If one thinks that wins are what matter, don't harp on a poor Smith performance if the team wins or loses. On the other hand, if one thinks that Smith's performance - win or lose - is what counts, then don't complain about losses when Smith plays well.
Can't have it both ways....
You make it sound like we've actually won with Smith. He has a 16-27 starting record. If we were 3-0 people wouldn't be killing Alex right now.
Nah, he's making it sound like whether we win or lose people blame Smith regardless if we win or lose. And you'd have to be lying to yourself if you think otherwise. And he's also pointing out that we have actually lost to 0-3 as a team, not just on Smith.
I don't buy that at all. If we were 3-0 or 2-1 for that matter Alex wouldn't be getting half of the criticism that he is. Jimmy Raye would still have his job, and Singletary wouldn't be on the hot seat.
Exactly. But like a lot of commentators say even if it's not the QB only because it's one of the important positions then he'll get the slack regardless. Which i can accpet. But the ones in here, knock him if he has a good or bad game.
