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.
It don't matter who we have at QB its the coaching, all three phases of the game. Alex is not that bad, our line sucks and you know it, if you watch our team there is a guy in his face almost every play.
Doesnt matter how you look at it. We all went into this season (fans and analysts alike) expecting Alex Smith to have a breakout year, and to play beyond expectations. I dont think anyone will disagree that Smith has not played up to par.
Now he's out for a few weeks.......will only have a handful of games to prove himself when he gets back + injury.........he's not gonna get resigned.
The Alex Smith era is over.
Now it's time to address other problems on this roster, and it starts with coaching.
