I do not get the argument that Smith didn't have good coaches. Mccarthy? Turner? Martz? Those were really his coaches and he couldn't perform. He didn't even win out for the starting spot for Martz.
LOL wut? Do you not recall Martz ripping Alex a new one on the sideline in that preseason game vs. GB?
This is entirely new to just about everyone. I'd like to see some proof of this so called quote from Martz. Til then, I'm calling buls**t on it.
In any case, (and even if JTO was Martz's pick for the QB position) it doesn't matter. JTO won the starting job by playing pretty well in the preseason that year. Alex played terribly.
Hill was the player who was never given a fair shake with the 49ers...he's always been the best QB on our roster.
