Go look it up on NFL.com. He's over Brady, Matt Ryan, Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Joe Flaco, Aaron Rodgers.
I bet half of you didn't know that because all you do is fault find and complain that Alex Smith is the same QB he was 5 years ago. For a guy who throws nothing but check downs he sure is slinging it
Stop looking at total yards and comparing that to his productivity. We're a running team and built for it. It has nothing to do with Alex.
Don't mess up a good story with truth.
Ya, Brady throws most of his passes short as well, but don't tell anyone because that would mess up the "Captain Checkdown" story.
This is where averages and stats are misleading, because watching other games...Those QBs mentioned are not throwing less then 5 every attempt...
Smith doesn't do this either.
