Does Alex Smith have any Trade Value???

Any chance Norv Turner would grab him to compete with Rivers in SD?

Please not Oakland.

Things would get ugly around here. Alex Smith already gets the harshest of treatment from 9er fans as a 9er lol. If he played for the Raiders he would be the easiest player in history to despise as a 49er fan. I agree anywhere but there.

i think even as a raider, a majority of the fans would not boo him when he comes back. why should they? what did he do to warrant that type of treatment, esp the way it is apparantly coming to an end here for him?

Hes been on losing teams alot through the Nolan/Sing years, I dont see him starting over. Philly, Jets, Cards, Jags.......these are bottom tier teams, I dont think he wants to play for 9 more years hoping to get 8 wins after he was so close to a SB. Giants, maybe Pats, but I would guess either if traded or signs as a FA, he goes to a contender, even to be a backup. Hell, the Falcons or Vikings would make sense.

Look at the money that the Bears gave Campbell to be a backup whom was once a starter, in a year when there were good QB's in the draft. Hes terrible. I dont think Alex plays for the money, he never has, he plays to win. Its a shame that he will likely be leaving us, I always liked the guy, for his spirit, his love of the team, but I cant see him coming back next year. But when he goes, it wont be to some team that is so desperate to sign Kolb or Flynn or Cassell, it will be a contender, with the hopes that he can start again and beat us in the playoffs.
also got to consider maybe he and his wife like the weather out there and would like to stay close by??

I get that, I hear CA is nice. Wife, and a new kid. But where does he go? Oak? Thats a disaster waiting to happen, that team is 10 years or more from being a contender again, and with all they gave up for Palmer, I cant see that. SD? Norv is gone after this year, if he makes it that long. Rivers will have a new HC, maybe a GM that can keep talent on the team, why would anyone want to be a backup there? Hes not going to unseat Rivers, as terrible as hes been this year, it wont happen. Two bottom teams for the future, as long as Peyton is in DEN and their D stays healthy, thats their division for a good long time. I just cant see him with a loser, not after being so close.
Alex is worth AT LEAST a second rounder.

Winning as a backup qb is irrelvant. Jason Campbell or Byran Leftwich goes to the winner because they can't start anywhere else. No, proven qb in his prime would ever sign on to be a backup.

I wouldn't boo him and wouldn't single him out but it would be a downright travesty to see him with the Raiders. I think back to Jerry Rice going to the Raiders and almost getting another superbowl win. I hated to root against our greatest player ever but to see him in the superbowl in a Raiders jersey...

With that logic, why didnt Campbell go to Arizona, he easily would have been the starter there, or Jacksonville. Hes awfull, but not Gabbert awfull. I just see him going to a contender, with wishful thinking that he can start due to injury or retirement (Brady) and lead his team to a SB. I dont see him going somewhere hes going to get pummeled week to week, booed again and bowing out of the league as the next Carr.

The Eagles isn't the bottom tier team. It has talents.

Smith has to be careful picking teams (if the 49ers release him), but being a starter is almost always better than sitting on the bench when one is in his prime like Smith is.

The Cardinals still wanted to give Kolb at least one more year after failing to interest Peyton Manning. I think they give up on him by now. Kolb could be serviceable, but is too fragile to earn big bucks. Like I commented before, if Smith goes to AZ, he may have to take a pay cut to help them beef up the OL.

Blaine Gabbert was penciled in as Jacksonville's starter from day 1 (besides the interest inTebow but that's a different story) . Kolb/ Skelton was Arizona's starter. You're just making up that Campbell could have started there. It doesn't work that way. Jacksonville invested a 1st rounder in Gabbert and because of that they were committed to him.

Smith in New England? Yeah right. Here's how that plays out. What are your thoughts on bringing in Alex as a backup. Brady "No" Belichek "Okay".
I think Shaub's contract is up this year. If things turn south in Houston, I could see that being a destination point. Shaub has a hard time staying healthy and Smith may be the type of QB that would appeal to Kubiak.

Nope. Signed an extension in September.
