well any info on how serious it is? I couldnt catch it on tv..
so how much more do we appreciate Alex now that we seen David Carr? Troy Smith in anytime soon?
Smith's career in SF is done. Up to this point, his play was questionable at best. I know his fans will say he played great today, but Im sorry.......scoring on your opening drive and then not making any noise against the worst team in the NFL is not something to build on.
Regardless of him returning, his supporters now have new ammo to defend him; INJURY.
I think his time here is over. Even if he misses 4 weeks, he doesnt have enough time to convince front management for an extension. Plus his injury will ply aq role in all this.
As for Carr stinking, yeah I guess if people want to use Carr's bad play to praise Smith, then all the power to them. In reality, all the QBs stink, and this was done on purpose by Sing so that Smith would have no competition.
Smith's M.O. is to "light it up" (80's and 90's passer rating) against the bottom 5 teams in the league, get 70's passer rating against average teams, and get 50's and 60's passer rating against the top 1/3 to 1/2 of the teams in the league. Regardless of this 6 year trend, people in NT will still proclaim he has arrived when he gets a passer rating of 87 against the worst team in football.
Yep, people are actually praising him for 9-19 effort against arguably the 12th ranked defense in the league.
Fixed. And you are very welcome.
In other words, Smith played pretty well for a guy passing against the 12th ranked passing defense.
