no s**t, not only does he have a lot of threads, they seem to be the most popular ones too, really he should have 1 thread and thats it, maybe an iq test should be required before attempting to create a new alex smith thread?
In that case Alex might be the only one able to start a post on himself then
But seriously Alex is good when he can control the game, operate within the formations he is comfortable with. That is why he is so good at 2 or 4 minute drills and inside the redzone. Outside of that, he has a hard time adapting to a coordinators ideas if he doesn't think it fits the situation. If Harbaugh wants him back and they can work something out with Roman such as: propose a formation and let Alex make the call at the line (after all he is extremely intelligent and for lack of a better or worse term, he is one hell of a game manager).
Personally, if we are going to focus on a 60/40 run/pass WCO their aren't much better options then Alex, maybe trade for Matt Flynn and draft a rookie. Have Smith and Flynn compete for the starting gig and go with the winner? After all McCarthy was part of the system that drafted Smith and maybe snatching up another prospect that learned McCarthy's system could only mean good things for both Flynn and Smith. Smith has more experience then Flynn but Flynn has extensive time with a WCO playbook, and they could feed off each other.
