And you know this because..?
Alex Smith did what he's been doing since Mike Johnson became OC. He came in hot, scored on the first drive and didn't do a damn thing after that. What makes you think he would have won this game? The outcome probably would have been the same with Smith in there. Did you already forget about the drive-killing and game-losing turnovers Alex caused earlier in the season? Or are you one of the guys that said those losses were a "team effort" but somehow when it's a different QB under question, it's the QB's fault? As long as it's not Alex, right?
Carr threw a game-ending INT, but Alex made similar game-killing mistakes earlier in the season. Somehow, the blame on Alex was shifted elsewhere every time, but once a different QB does it, it's all on the QB. Our defense sucked ass today, so why is it Carr's fault? Keep in mind I am not trying to defend Carr, I think he blows and I never wanted to see him in the first place, but it's ridiculous how Alex gets a pass all the time.
Judging by the way things were going for Alex Smith after the first drive, I doubt the outcome would have been any different if he hadn't gotten hurt.
