Alex Smith is like a stain that simply will not go away. In the current offense we want to run, Smith is a poor quarterback, he just isn't that good. He gives up on 50% of the plays, and makes unbelievably idiotic mistakes 1-2 times each game. In the spread offense (where we throw 90% of the time) Smith can be very good, but since we are not going to run that f*#@ing offense, then why on earth are we putting Smith back in?
Troy Smith makes plays, and does not make as many mistakes. I thought this was Singletary's ideal quarterback for his silly ass offense.
In the current offense we run, Troy Smith is BETTER. Just plain BETTER. He makes PLAYS. You can't understate how important that is from the quarterback position.
He makes throws that we NEVER see from Alex Smith. The throw to Vernon Davis (the one on the sideline), was a perfect example. Alex Smith would never have tried to make that play, but Troy Smith has the guts and ability to make a big play like that happen, yet also avoid tons of turnovers.
Maybe we are putting Alex Smith back in the spread, but at this point, the idiocy is getting out of hand. If Singletary wanted to run the spread, he would have done it by now, right?
