Lets say that this newly refound leader, one by the name of Alex Smith
I appreciate Alex and everything he's done during this lockout, but that "leader" quality seems to have been thrust upon him by Jim Harbaugh. When they met on the one day that the lockout was lifted, Harbaugh not only gave him a playbook, but PowerPoint tools to help him teach the offense. In other words, Harbaugh clearly is the mastermind behind all of this.
I'm not trying to take away from what Alex Smith has done, but it's become obvious to me that he's doing what Harbaugh told him to do.
LOL this guy can never win.
Who cares if it was "thrust" upon him. He wasn't forced to do it. He's not even on the f'n team. He could have easily stayed in the bay area and landed a over priced contract across the bay.
Look, I could careless about Smith at this point but you're going to great lengths to discredit the guy.
I figured someone would whine about it if I mentioned it. Congratulations, you're the culprit.
Look, I mentioned it because I just read about it and watched an interview discussing it this morning.
Nobody minds when I mention anyone else being over- or under-credited, but if it's Alex, people like you cry. I have no agenda against Alex. I'm actually rooting for the guy because I realize he will be the starting QB, but I won't over-credit him or anyone else. I, like most, thought he was doing all this on his own, that it was his own idea. That's clearly not the case so I won't continue acting like it is.
That post, believe it or not, was meant to credit Harbaugh for being prepared, not to discredit Alex Smith. You can sit there and lie about not caring about Alex, but you're not fooling anyone. You saw the post the way you wanted to see it.
Lol ok buddy. Yes you're right...how asinine of me. I should have known all you were doing was crediting Harbaugh but my "Alecks luving" rose glasses saw things the way "I wanted to."
FWIW, my post was more of a general commentary on giving credit where credits due...not necessarily to be the "culprit." Personally, I don't think this will translate into success for Smith. I think he will do reasonably well (85-88 QB rating) and lead us to a wild card. He will have great games mixed with atrocious games. Hopefully Smith can be Colin's "DeBerg."
