must be that evny

but for real, i don't mind that smith is aikman. perhaps if he becomes a color commentator too, he can create his own "alex smith QB rating system."
And Crabtree reminds me of Irvin..

Big physical possession WR. Not to fast. Not overly powerful.


I still don't get why Irvin is the 'playmaker' guy only has 65 career TDs and went double digit TDs once in his career.
And Moran Norris reminds me of Daryl Johnston
And Chilo reminds me of Larry Allen lol

Irvin was overrated, Aikman was not though.

Nice. So we're one playmaking WR and one young stud RB away from 3 superbowl titles and A. Smith being a HOF QB!

Not really. He was damn good for a while.

Ill argue that. Best O-Line possibly of all time. One of the Best rushing attacks of all time. Never had to carry his team. He was the original game manager. Only had one season over 20 touchdowns.

Teams stacked the box and left him with favorable match ups one on one.

Steve Young on those early 90s cowboys teams, wins 10 superbowls.

This is more like it. I don't think either was really overrated, but if one of them was it is probably Aikman. He had an overall ridiculous amount of talent around him.
2012 Alex Smith = 1992 Troy Aikman...

If anything I would hope for Alex to throw fewer picks.

Aikman 1992: 3445 passing yards, 23 TD, 14 INT, 63.8 % comp

Shows how different the NFL was that you could make the Pro Bowl with 3400 yards and 23 TD back then

being the QB of the over-hyped media darlings and 'Murrica's Team automatically doubles stats...
As of right now Smith's play, decision making, and production is a lot like Aikman to me too. Phil Simms even. Smith has much more mobility than those 2 guys so he can make plays out of the pocket. I think he will end up a bit better than them in terms of all around qb play. You are not going to roll out Aikman or Simms and think you will threaten the defense with their runs. I think Smith will end up better.
