whoever Tennessee is starting
The eagles could use a QB


No way is Alex better than any of those guys on that list. Remember Alex was a complete flop until Harbaugh arrived. Imagine a Sam Bradford on the 9ers with all our WR & VD and Running weapons and that lethal Defense?

He wasn't a flop before Harbaugh arrived. But the player being assessed is today's Alex Smith. And if you think all of those guys on that list are better than him, you are either eaten up with hate or you aren't a 49ers fan
wow,, that is harsh for english. But he is right of course. i have always said there is a small segment on the internet who have hated alex from day one and would do anything to see him out of town. the proof is there when those have consistently diluted his efforts when he has helped us win a game. if alex leaves us, it will be a sad day in my opinion after all he went through, what he did last year and this year and to lose his job cuz he got hurt. if he leaves i will have no time for anyone to break out the bells and whistles

4th round pick

Maybe 5th

So he's at Tim Tebow's level.

Tebow is a playoff winning QB

Isn't Smith?
so why the face?

That's not the only measure of a QB's value on the market. You have to know Smith is better than Tebow, right?

Probably not.

Alex is only 28. He's in his prime.
I get that, but still he did not generate any interest in free agency last year.
he will this year and anyone who does not believe that hates alex anyway so there is no hope for them, in my opinion
We will get a 2nd round pick for Alex

Goldson got none when he hit the market.......

Personally, I think Alex Smith's ultimate trade value can't be measured in what we get but has to be weighed with the cap space free'ed up to re-sign some key players.

I just want to make sure Smith doesn't end up with the Cardinals. That's the only location where I think he could do damage with this team.

The Cardinals have a horrible offense caused by probably the worse offensive line in the NFL. No quarterback is going to succeed there until they fix that line.

Legacy, you ever heard of Flynn or FitzPatrick? No one new of these guys and they got nice contracts after winning a couple of games. Same thing is going to happen to Alex.

agree with my friend P.A. if alex does lose his job and it is apparant he is not starting next year i would still keep him for the rest of this year cuz then who would we have for a back up we can trust in a big game? now IF he gets to be a problem child, which i do not foresee, then you do whatever you need to do. I hope it will not come down to that, he has always been a class act. Of course we are in kind of uncharted waters

I think it'd be insane for the 49ers FO to trade any QB at this point. Smith also doesn't have any real reason to demand a trade this season either, because he might his job back in many ways (CK gets injured; CK gets exposed; CK fails to win a single playoff game; etc.)

The trade deadline has passed, this conversation is about trading him in the offseason.

True. I forgot that when I made the post. It'll be an interesting scenario if CK starts in the playoffs, and fails to win a single game. The 49ers may have to pay Smith the retaining bonus. But what will Smith's action be? How likely it will be for him to demand a trade if he sees opportunity with a viable team?
I don't think he has much trade value. 2nd rounder at the highest. Most coaches and GM's are smart enough to know that Alex will not be successful on their team. Most teams with Superbowl bound talent...don't really need a QB.

Game managers can be found in the 3rd round or later.

Ummm. The Eagles need a QB (and a coach.) Talent-wise they are competitive.

Their OL is worse than ours was, but yeah, that is a super talented team and a 9th ranked run game. They would be the most ideal team for Alex.
Cardinals radio in AZ is going nuts about trying to pick up Alex Smith.
