I dont know where u been for the past 7 years, but Alex Smith has been "non-functional" until Harbaugh came. My point being, while u already declare Kaep as pretty much a backup / wasted pick in his 2nd year without much development time with the 1st team or much live bullet experience, we give Alex 5+ years to develop？ I say there's too much bias against Kaep.
Guess all those years of fail coaching you watched before the hiring of Harb, you didn't realize it was fail coaching...
Some fans still claim they know football... Especially the fans that like to criticize AS, even though the team is 6-2 and made it to the NFCC last year.
CK is at best a backup on even the worst NFL team. If he doesn't improve by next year, he is worthless. Give it a rest.
Mike McCarthy as OC is a bad coach? we all know where he took GB
Norv Turner as OC is a bad coach? Turner was the offensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys on Jimmy Johnson's staff when Dallas won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Turner got much of the credit for not only their success, but for helping shape quarterback Troy Aikman into a Hall of Fame player.
Mike Martz, while not one of the good coaches, is still very respected, and was OC for the Ram when they won the superbowl in 99
Those are 3 respected offensive coaches that should be able to put up a decent offensive strategy and work with Smith.
Then people will say "well smith didn't have continuity, he was only in each system for 1 year" That excuse can't work anymore, how about guys like Russel Wilson, RG3, Luck, etc. These rookies (and many others) were able to "function" in just having a training camp.
