Gotta give it to Alex, he's won every one of them...
Troy Smith had a pretty good winning percentage for our team at the time filling in for the injured Trent Dilfer. He was 3-3, and brought a little excitement to the passing game. He never had an opportunity to compete for a starting job with Alex Smith.
Shaun Hill beat out Alex Smith for the starting job in training camp, and was good enough to create a quarterback controversy.
JT O'Sullivan beat out Alex Smith for the starting job in training camp. He won the job before Alex's injury.
Colin Kaepernick with five weeks of NFL practice, was beat out by Alex Smith, with six years of NFL experience.
So Alex beat out Colin, with his five weeks of practice. I think Alex also beat out Tim Rattay? But he was the #1 overall pick, so we basically had to start him. Rattay didn't really have a chance. Then again, neither did Colin.
