You have zero logic to even draw upon, you can't fairly evaluate someone who has zero history with someone in the league for 6 years... You can't point at 6 years of losses when that rookie hasn't yet had the chance to lose for 6 years or even one lol.
So take all the history and shove it. Dalton today has played two games against mediocre if not downright horrible pass defenses. It's not like he's thrown for outlandish stats like cam newton, he has managed to play a clean pick free game but hasn't exactly done anything Smith hasn't done in his past. Smith has a few 300 yd games in his history, especially if the team is down and he actually has to throw the ball.
It's also just not fair to just look at dalton's week 2, in which he threw the ball 41 times in one game, while smith has only been allowed to throw the ball 42 times combined in 2 weeks. He has done everything the coaches have asked of him but they've never let him free.

Yeah i remember when we played the Seahawks...yeah, i remember when Smith barely got a chance to throw the ball with the play calling. Yeah, and i also remember when Harbaugh dialed up a lengthy pass play, Smith answered with Completetions. Same thing with the Cowboys game. i.e. Kyle Williams TD, Delanie TD.
So i suggest u watch some film first before u realize Smith is actually becoming a good qb this year. Dont care what anyone says
He's becoming a good QB this year? Based off 2 games and a history of being trash? People like you are willing to go 15 years with a losing record because you have Jesus like hope that Smith will take us somewhere. By week 8 he'll be back to his normal deer in the headlights self.
Smith wasn't great the last two years but he wasn't trash either.
