Play calling makes a difference and i agree that Alex would be much more successful in a spread out offense. It's been helping Bradford in St Louis too which people dont see. Hell even Aaron Rodgers prefers a spread out offense (made a comment about it during the press conference)
Now..all that said. The problem with Alex is when sht hits the fan...he seems to be the first turd to hit. That's my biggest issue with Smith. When things are great he's on fire...but when sht goes bad he gets worse. We need a guy who can PULL the team out of a slump and lead. Alex just can't really do that. He's done it once or twice but more often than not he fails.
I mean ask yourself: if Alex was in Jeff Garcias shoes in 2002 when we were playing the Giants...down 38-14...you think Alex brings us back? I like the kid but I think we lose 41-21 with Smith getting a TD in garbage time and then throwing a pick which gets turned into a FG by the Giants.
