That has nothing to do with what he can do. MIA's philosphy wasn't fitting with Ginn and they weren't using him. Look at Brandon Marshal. He had 3 straight 100 catch seasons on a Broncos team with different QB's. He goes to MIA and it drops to 86 catches.

The WR position and results rely heavy on the play call and the QB more than a QB relies on the WR. MIA isn't a WR friendly system or doesn't have the QB's who can light it up. We weren't much different.

That and he couldn't catch the ball, he still has poor hands, but I love him as a return man.

A lot of teams must deal with this issue with certain receivers. You don't let that stop the game plan. DHB had the dropsies but he was still thrown to deep and teams still needed to account for that defensively. We do not force a team to account for this.

Smith is the teflon kid! Nothing sticks to him...

See my last post, it really isn't worth arguing about anymore,Smith is the qb, he is the only one we hapve that gives us any chance to win. You have already admitted that he is playing better, why start with this again? I have heard you are a good guy from people I trust on here that know you and have no interest in getting into a heated argument over something that is been discussed and debated until there is nothing left to say on the subject. Let's just root for the guy until he's not in a niner uniform anymore, that won't hurt anyone, and it will keep the drama to a minimum. It is quite obvious to any reasonable person that Smith is not a problem this year.

I'm frustrated that other QBs can land in the NFL in bad situations and play well and we haven't had that here since Jeff Garcia left. I'm further frustrated that fans tolerate this and make excuses to somehow justify this situation.

That's more of an internal issue with you not being able to accept that there are more factors in the equation than just Smith. He has not been the sole, of even main reason this team has struggled. We have had owners with no clue hiring coaches with no clue trying to teach a qb with skill but no clue. Now we have owners that are starting to figure it out that have hired a coach that is known for grooming qb talent and it is showing results. I know it is a lot to ask, but if Joe Montana says have some motherf**kin patience, you gotta have some motherf**kin patience.

Said it perfectly Memphis. Now lets not get crazy. Since he's been here, he hasnt been the sole reason we havent worked out. At times a part of the problem, so not gonna sugarcoat. Since he's been here, i can give you at least 3 to 5 games every season that we fell apart in the end. The issue that I like with other teams, is that they all seemed to maximize their players potential right away. Best example i like is, S. Bradford. Last year with the Rams everyone was like how good he was, but failed to see that most his yards game on the quick short throws, not deep balls. Just pretty good YAC. Which regardless of who was our QB was since T.O was here, our WR's never seem to have any. And we've had a ton of QB's since then.

I havent seen too many teams that have a lead on a SB winning team, and just crumble in the few minutes left. I've seen most of a fair balance, just like the Jets with Sanchez. His first year, the Jets were no 1 on running and in defense. So imagine if he came here, and he didnt have either. Might not see the same Sanchez. As I said, I'm not making any excuses as to the overthrows, underthrows, bonhead INT's etc. But at the same time, every Qb makes some of the same mistakes that he does, but with him a lot of the time, most feel the throws should be perfect. I think the WR helps the QB look good, and vice versa.

Overall, as a team, the difference is regardless of who our QB is, the SF 49ers always manage to shoot themselves in the foot, and if not on offense, then defense, if not either than special teams. Give me one game, where they are all clicking on all cylinders, and i bet we'd be a force to be reckoned with.

Bottom line is, good QBs can play well with mediocre environments and bad QBs need EVERYTHING to be right just to be mediocre or at best slightly above average. Wake up and raise your expectations to what is happening in the rest of the NFL. We are in year SEVEN of a failed experiment, people.

You just do not get it, you fail time and time again to grasp the differences in the situations. Keep thinking in that narrow minded way, I am done trying to reason with you. Your whole line of reasoning is a seven year failure.

What's his excuse, and why is he better than Alex Smith in year 7? We'll find out this Sunday. If Andy was our QB and stunk it up, we'd have every excuse in the book ready for him, but he went to a worse team and is lighting it up so far.

Watching all these QBs come out of college to the worst teams in the league (like Smith did) and just flat out play is getting irritating. No wonder I'm so pissed about this slow learning, inaccurate, hesitant, and non-instinctual player we have at QB for the last 7 years and counting.
Wait... so when another QB's rating is higher, he is better than Smith, but when Smith's rating is higher it is because of short passes/lack of trust/dump offs/poor D/etc/etc.? That seems like a double standard.

Shaj - Smith's piss poor rookie year was far too long ago. Let it go, man!

Panthers, Rams, and Bengals? What's the difference? And at the time, ATL didn't really have offensive talent and neither did BAL. BAL's best WR was Mason.

Coaching? McCarthy and Turner. Smith should have picked some things up. Oh wait, they restricted him to very little but those other QB's weren't restricted. Why was that?
