This is post number 400 for mike.

lol if you're going to say kolbs #'s are skewed by only playing a quarter then why don't you comment on 2 of his 300 yard games being skewed when 1) the first came in a blowout against the saints that turned into a blowout because he sucked so bad, then got a bunch of garbage yards in the 3rd/4th quarter and 2) his 2nd 300 yard game came against the worst pass defense in the league at the time (the chiefs).
a good coach once said this and it is true today as well: you are what you are in the nfl. kolb is a 75 rated passer with 3 career wins. alex is a career disappointment. bradford is a mediocre qb with a losing record as a starter. tavaris jackson has squandered any opportunity he has ever had. that is what the NFC west is made up of. players who have sucked dick for years and players who haven't really looked good but get a "pass" for now because of the P word (potential).
Well lets see, first off how did that game turn into a blowout because of him? Pretty sure any time your defense allows 48 points(400+yards) you've got a slim chance of winning no matter who is at quarterback.(unless his name is brees, brady, or manning)
He had some bad picks but that's going to happen in your FIRST nfl start. Their defense was not any better, such as the fumbled kick return that brees easily scored on the very next drive. Those "Garbage yards" are still more than alex could hope to produce and that was the only point I was making, that kolb is better, whether a lot of it has to do with "potential" or not.
If you want to go by win percentage, kolb is 3/8(37.5%), Smith is a career 19/51(about the same, around 38%) in games he's started. The difference is at least kolb could even himself out with one win streak, obviously the sample size we've got is MUCH smaller on him. Alex has years and years of losing where kolb has what amounts to half a season spread across a couple years.
Would you rather have potential to be better, or stick with the same old s**t?
