The last time I checked the question wasn't "Grade T. Smith juxtaposing hi performance with How you feel about A. Smith, no matter how irrational that hate has been". It is like ten thousand 12 year old's have taken over NT...
Anyway, I will give T. Smith a B for the game. He didn't do much, and had some luck, but he made a few big plays and had to fight against pitiful situational play-calling for much of the game. Also Vernon went down and he still came through so that was nice. I liked his command in the pocket, and his ability to move around. I didn't like his decision making all the time. He needs to be more careful against better defensive squads ecause he got lucky a few times out there.
See it isn't that hard to be unbiased. I want to make sure everyone notices how much the supposedly "biased, myopic etc" Alex fans are being fair with T. Smith. Can't say that for the haters who STILL talk about him even when he wasn't in the game, and incorporate him in their grading systems. Stay Classy Ninertalk.
You are kidding -- aren't you?
Alex Smith has never had a performance like this. Period. End of story. Alex Smith would have thrown two or three picks and turned the ball over three times because that's what Alex does. Period.
We're not blind dude. We know good QB play. We know we haven't seen it out of Alex. His record reflects that.
Why don't you stop hating on Troy after just one game?
Haha!!! Wow that is a dumb post. You are correct Alex has never had a performance like that... except when he has several times in the last two years. If you don't have enough intellectual honesty to admit that Alex Smith has had some good games (and some better games than this one by T. Smith in bigger circumstances) then you must be a hater on NT.
I am so sick of your ignorant comments and arguments. PLEASE STOP MISREPRESENTING WHAT I SAY. Where did I hate on Smith? I said that he had some good plays, some lucky plays, and a few bad plays (all true). I also commented on the attributes that I was encouraged by, and those that I thought might be a problem moving forward. It is called being objective- something that you obviously can't comprehend or apply to your own posts from what I have seen.
I am beside myself dealing with the utter stupidity of comments like these. Do you even have a highschool education? That is a serious question. I only ask because I would think that you would at least try to understand the very simple points in my post (many of which were positive about T. Smith) It is like people can't even understand the words they are reading on here sometimes. Go back and slowly read what I wrote and tell me how you can come to the brilliant conclusion that I was hating on T. Smith.
If you have ever read my comments you know that I have never been sold on A. Smith, but I just can't stand freaking people like you who are dishonest, childish, and ignorant about the whole situation.
P.S. - go back and look at Alex Smith's stats for the last two years and you will find a good amount of games that were very comparable to this. Please do that before you respond in some ridiculous way.
