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.

Right............
Does Alex pull a Brett Favre and play injured?

Alex had a pretty good first drive to open the game -- but then settled into the mediocrity of play that we've come to see from him.

Blame Anthony Davis all you want for the injury -- and he did blow that block -- but you can also cite Mr. Smith's lack of awareness in the backfield, pocket presence, whatever you want to call it. We have seen this lack of a pocket presence again and again and again from him.

He didn't even see the defensive end coming at him. The hit caught him totally by surprise.

Sorry -- but an NFL QB just CANNOT DO THAT. You must be AWARE of the speed rushers on the edge -- and it's not like Davis was holding the point to begin with. Smith should have known he wasn't going to have a lot of time - but instead he just looked the other direction as we ALL KNEW what was about to happen.

We won't really know the extent of his injury until he gets an MRI -- but I think his career in San Francisco is pretty much finished at this point. And -- unless another team takes a flyer on a QB with two busted up shoulders (highly unlikely kids) -- his career in the NFL is probably over as well.

A sad ending to an equally sad era in San Francisco 49er Football.

lack of awareness? HOW many times have we seen Alex scramble from being pressured or throw it away to avoid a sack this year? he was hit from his BLIND spot. a spot "most" QB's can't see coming.

ive seen manning brees and other top echelon qbs get sacked in a similar way....this one play doesnt make your argument...if it had happened repeatedly this year, yeah, but it hasnt

the 1st drive the roll outs were working, then the niners went away from it..dont know why...this may be the worse oline in football

It's really too bad. Dude had 5 TDs and 1 pick his last 6 quarters.

You had to figure with his and our luck that when he started playing better something would happen.

It isn't "luck" when a rookie whiffs on a block and the QB gets planted - that is the sign of a bad offensive line...STILL!!

FYI, a right handed QB's blind spot is his left side. He got hit from the right. I think he should have seen it coming. I don't think he's out of football, however. He will have a long journeyman career most likely, with a few fill-in starts here and there.

FYI if you're focusing on the very left side of the field and not the right, it still creates a blind spot
