Another thing that kills me is the fact that Alex enthusiasts constantly point at a bad OLine, and a lack of weapons as the reasons that he hasnt played well. Well what about other QBs who were top picks and played well? Wouldnt it be logical to say that those players went to teams with problems too? ALL top picks go to crappy teams with problems. These teams have the top picks in the drafts or a reason. You are either Sam Bradford whose skills can overcome the teams faults, or you are Alex Smith (or Akili Smith, Ryan Leaf, Jamarcus Russell, etc) whose lack of skills cant overcome the teams faults.
And what about other QB's that played behind these same lines with the same weapons in the same season but had better results?
Something that Alex fans never have a realistic answer for. Its always because the "other team doesnt have film on our other QBs", or "we didnt make the playoffs, what is the difference," or my personal favorite "QBs dont have winning percentages."
At what point will a spade be called a spade rather than saying the rest of the cards in the hand is the reason it is a spade?
