AR would get the ball to Crabtree very often. I could only dream of how awesome this 49ers team would be right now if we had AR as our QB. Not bashing Alex but Nolan screwed the hell up! Alex is now coming around but AR is probably the best QB in the NFL at this point.
the question then becomes not what the niners would look like if we had your beloved AR but what G.B. would look like if Alex had gotten a chance to sit for three years behind one of the best q.b.s in history and then got to inherit a team that went to the nfc championship game the year before.... He would be tearing it up just like optimus prime. Can you still not see how important the system that raises a Q.B is??? Do you really think AR could have lifted up what was the the worst offense in the league with NO pro bowl receivers or Olineman and delivered us Ring #5??????really dude... I would stilll take Alex over the Aaron " born into the NFL with Brett Farves silver jockstrap in his mouth" rodgers if we had to do it all over!!! Aaron turned into a decent Q.b. thoughehh. and yeah the receiving core that crabtree MIGHT be able to make aint so bad either
Aaron Rodgers is better than Alex Smith. Period. Forget all the excuses. Rodgers is more talented. If the roles were reversed, it's highly unlikely Alex would be anywhere near Rodgers' current level, even if he got all the advantaged you just mentioned. Look no further than Alex's accuracy issues (throwing 10 feet over receiver's heads, throwing 5-yards short of a receiver standing 12 yards away, etc).
People need go give it up and admit we made a mistake. Alex is doing well now, and that's awesome for us, but Rodgers is the far superior QB regardless of all the excuses made for Alex.
