A Reasonable Thread About Alex Smith

It's simple, watch the tape, it's got a good vision of the field like coaches tape.
This is for the "haters". The biggest knocks from them on Alex Smith are:
1.No pocket presence
2.No accuracy
3.He doesn't come up big in the clutch

This is the final drive where the Niners need a touchdown and a two point conversion so it's all clutch.
This is TAPE, real GAME ACTION, please watch and make a referenced statement if you would like to continue to act like you know more than Harbaugh.

Thank-you ahead of time for not turning this into a this-guy-against-that-guy 40 page thread that nobody cares about.
Here we go
Yes people always say Alex is not a winner but he has the skills to be a winner like four of the games we lost last year he drove and got points. And the d let us down i would definitely like to see what he can do under the new staff
i want him to stay for one reason and one reason only, the turmoil he brings to niner talk

I hate when people play mod on here. Even if you have a valid point.
It may start out reasonable but I doubt it will end that way.
For any 1 positive tape you produce on Alex Smith, anyone out there can produce 10 negative tapes. Let it rest, it's over for him. He doesn't have that "IT" factor!

This is a 5-6 year argument!
Hey another Alex Smith Thread......more more.........we need more.....
some people
I think things like this are why Harbaugh hasn't cancelled Alex out and is working with him. He's shown he has the capability to play, it's the inconsistencies that are the problem. Can he do this on a regular basis?

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.
