From the sounds of it..seems like Smith should be back after the bye.
If we can win next week that would help. 2-6 then the bye...then Rams and Bucs at home with Smith back in. Not saying we win out or anything but it's much more hopeful than Carr for 4-6 weeks.
His fate is sealed. Even if he makes it back after the bye, he has only half the season to convince the masses that he's a longterm solution. Unless he goes Kolb-ish and throws for 300+ yard per game with multiple TDs (not to mention finish the season strong with wins), there's no way the Yorks extend an olive branch to him.
Basically, today was the end of Alex's career in Ninerland. We can argue all we want on whether he is good or not......the reality is that he did not play up to expectations in a season where everyone (fans and analysts) thought would be his breakout year.
I dont think he'll be a starter, but maybe some team will take him on in a backup role.
