People on here are hilarious !!! Harbaugh has to evaluate Alex because that is his job and if he makes an attempt to keep him he obviously thinks he has what it takes to be a productive qb at least for the short term and if he doesn't than he probably doesn't feel he has enough be productive. But if Harbaugh did not evaluate him and just sent him packing just because and he went to another team and played for a more stable orginization who had an identity as a football team and was successful most of you would whine and cry about how we let him go !!!
I disagree with you guys who say we would regret it if he does good somewhere else, things will happen the way they are going to happen. I think MOST SF fans know its been the end of the road with alex for more than a season, if he does good somewhere else it will probably be VERY limited but he wont do well here. Too much baggage too much mental mess. I really think half of Alex being so bad was his mental approach, and i think he himself has worked his way into a corner he cant get out of here in the Bay area. Most people wont be mad if he does OK somewhere else, the 49ers for me and many others are my focus. And whoever is the QB, Coach, etc. will be everyones focus after he leaves.
Good post. I agree that this would be most/all people's sentiments.
Harbaugh will evaluate and make a decision. IMO it would be a poor idea to resign Alex even as a stop-gap measure. It would just carry over the "loser" mentality that has dogged the Niners these past six years. The organization does need to turn the page. But still, it's the coaches choice and he is PC in saying its a blank sheet. Let's not forget that Walsh even worked with the loser for a couple of years (Even if DeBerg was better than the current loser; Deberg went on the have moderate success elsewhere).
People who beat the "no coaching" drum conveniently forget that he had three excellent QB coaches in McCarthy, Turner and Martz. Yet he never assimilated anything, nor demonstrated the spark that characterizes franchise QBs. He will flatter to deceive on the practice field, in training camp, because he is intelligent and he can make the plays and look good in a staged environment. He'll fool you; he did the other guys. But bring in the element of unpredictability (game time) and his lack of football instincts become apparent.
In two three years all this will be distant memory.
We can only dream man. I have waited to see the light at the end of tunnel only to be disappointed time after time. I wouldn't get excited intill the roster set and Alex not on it. Only then will I be dancing for joy..
Let's put it this way.
Casual fan's disappointment is due to Alex
Knowledgeable fan's disappointment is due to the way the organization has been ran
I think you need to think about it a little differently. Do you think fans that spend hours on Webzone don't know the organization has been run poorly? OF COURSE THEY KNOW. But any football town you go to, The QB is a focal point of success or failure, and rightfully so he does get all the offensive snaps. Like JH said he touches the ball every play. It takes two or more people to have these arguments and i think alex supporters know your going to get some die hard fan f**king mad if you support the one player that has been the focal point of his/her teams failure. He is not the reason for the failure but is part of the problem in the grand scheme. Everyone knows this, but sports writers, TV, And everyone else don't just talk about this QB position for nothing. ITS HUGE. They have dedicated a whole year to the QB on ESPN.
So all in all each arguing member stokes the fire just as much as the other, but dont think just because someone dislikes alex greatly that he doesnt know our team has made other piss poor decisions. Maybe some do, but most people on here are dedicated fans that know a few things.
Do they really know? How can they know when you have people calling Alex a coach killer? Has Alex really been the focal point? We drafted two linemen to run smashmouth football, and fed the ball to Gore till his hip fell off.
