I bet that if we had drafted Dalton with the same pick (I know he was not available) u would probably be saying the same thing about him, and we all know he's not.
Reasons Alex Smith was a "project":
--Played in a small conference (MWC)
--Played in a "gimmick" offense, may lack mechanics to run a pro system (Urban Meyer's spread option)... Alex Smith footwork 2005....
--Stats are inflated due to system.
--Played in a small conference (WAC)
--Played in a gimmick offense (Nevada's pistol), mechanics.....
--Stats are inflated due to system (more so rushing in CK's case)
What's so hard for you to comprehend? It is a very clear statement. You think Colin is better qualified to start than Smith? And no Dalton was not a project, plus the Bengals had no better option than to start him, but Dalton at this point in his career is a better qb than Colin.
