They say art imitates life. There is truth or inspiration to every story of heroes who defy all odds and render the pundits speechless.
Why is everyone so quick to write off this team. Adversity makes the end result that much sweeter if we win.
As far as Troy smith... lets see before we write this kid off, or award him the crown. Until then just root for your team, and dont rely on another 1st round possibility until that is all we have to hope on.
Here are 5 cinderella stories for you at the position of QB. This is only 5 of countless stories throughout the history of the NFL. Stay Faithful. This is how history is made.
Jeff Garcia 5: Spent 5 seasons CFL before the 9ers gave him a chance in the NFL. In 10 NFL seasons, Garcia threw for 25,537 yards and 161 touchdowns.
Kurt Warner: He went from stocking shelves to winning Super Bowls. Warner went undrafted and played in the Arena League for a few seasons before the Rams picked him up.
Warren Moon: Spent five seasons in the CFL after college, winning five consecutive Grey Cups. He was eventually picked up by the Houston Oilers, and he became one of the best pure passers to ever play the game.
Steve Young: Before becoming a back-up in SF and later the starter to win our 5th SB. Buccaneers posted 2–14 records in each of Young's two seasons with them, and Young's record as starter was 3–16. In his 19 games, he threw for only 11 touchdowns with 21 interceptions while completing fewer than 55% of his passes.
Tom Brady: Brady was selected with pick #199, a compensatory pick, in the sixth round of the draft. In 2001 Brady was named the starter for the season's third game, against the Colts. In his first two games as starter, Brady posted unspectacular passer ratings of 79.6 and 58.7, respectively
