Little did both the 49ers organization and Alex Smith know what they were getting into. I mean, just look at all the events that have happened since Smith was drafted. 7 years, 7 OC's, 3 Coaches, new ownership, new G.M, etc. Now I'm not saying all this is directly due to Alex, but I am saying it had something to do with us drafting him, and where we drafted him.
Trying to not go off topic but I think the reason everything happened the way it happened in terms of personel decisions was due to the strange criteria that the ownership had for coaches and then coaches had for players. I still remember the bizarre workout they put Alex through at his pro day and the practice facilities, you shouldn't be drafting a QB off of his ability to do math while jumping in place on one leg......This franchise has done itself wrong, it's no single persons fault but a whole clusterf**k of issues.....
Back on topic, in modern day post 1980 9er history it would have to be Steve Young getting knocked out, because that was the end of the 20 years of dominance by the 9ers. We might have had a slightly graceful decent into mediocrity from 99-02 but it all started with Young getting KO'ed. Easily worst moment in recent memory.
