He was one of the better quarterbacks in the league, rating-wise, in the red zone for his career. Take that for what it's worth - some people criticize QB rating because it rewards safe play - and there was a time where Alex Smith was behind only Peyton Manning for consecutive red zone attempts without an interception. I believe that streak ended this year against the Cardinals (?).
I think it was Tom Brady but yea I remember that
It'll take too long to calculate passer rating and all that in the redzone so I'll just post this
Alex Smith in the red zone the last 3 years
2011: 13 TDs 2 INTs
2010: 13 TDs 0 INTs
2009: 16 TDs 0 INTs
No question hes one of the better red zone QBs in the league.
I didnt originally want to post this but
2006: 15 TDs 1 INT
2005: 1 TD 0 INTs
and of course he was injured in 2007 and 2008..
but in 2007 it was 2 TDs to 0 INTs
I know a big part of it is playing it safe but 60 TDs to 3 INTs in the redzone for your career is pretty impressive
I remember the game against us where Cutler had like 4 INTs in the redzone lol
