Exactly. It's just that people have Alex smith's rookie year engrained in their minds. Plus Colin is no longer technically even a rookie, a year is a lot of practice and film study.
-We don't have a s**t coach, there's no way colin throws 30 picks, if he plays that bad on a game to game basis he doesn't play and we get someone else like hasselbeck in there.
-We have the weapons, teams like the jags and skins horrible passing offenses aren't helped by the fact they have absolutely zero talent. Vernon Davis is one of those TEs that's a youngster's best friend. Crab, moss, manningham, this is a pretty talented pool now.
-If we can limit Alex's turnovers and teach him to only throw in "safe" situations, why can't that easily be applied to a rookie? Actually that sounds PERFECT for a youngster to learn football in.
