I'll oblige and talk amicably....
Hold on before I go into foot ball let's see what Alex Smith has to do first in order to be considered in the "Perhaps better than Steve Young."
- A Career passer rating of 96.8
- Most rushing Touchdowns by a QB 43 (I think Vick might've broken that)
- Most passing titles, tied with Sammy Baugh- 4
- Most seasons with passer rating over 100 – 6
- Most TD's in one Super Bowl – 6
- Super Bowl MVP
- Countless Pro Bowls
Not to mention he was doing this all while trying to shake of the shadow of Montana.
Alex Smith still has to get out of Jeff Garcia's shadow to step into Steve Young's
Young's arm vs. Alex Smith's arm in terms of strength is debatable in fact I would argue that Young's out of the 4 QB's was the strongest.
As far as being smart, Smith may have scored high on the Wonderlic, but Young is a friggin' Lawyer bruh…
By the way the Zone Blitz was developed in 1971, not 1995 and Steve Young wasn't and the only one who had problems with it, but everyone had problems with it and still continue to have problems with it.
You could perhaps say that Alex Smith is in a better off position at this point of his career than Steve Young was at this point in his or Smith has the potential to be better than Steve Young, but to say better than Steve Young…I don't buy it.
And the link below is my visual evidence.

He was frazzled when he slipped in the mudd mid play and threw the game winning TD Strike to T.O. in the playoffs vs. Green Bay. Totally Frazzled.
That was his only winning play vs the pack....can u name a better one?
Steve had his moment against Green Bay, I can't remember Smith having one…and here's the funny thing I am an Alex Smith apologist and think that with this particular coaching staff he can succeed, how much will depend on Smith…but now he truly has no excuses…
