I just hope this decision doesn't back fire on us, right when i heard Bowman was extended i felt like the writing was on the wall and they were going to move forward with kaep, and while i have been patiently waiting for someone with a bigger skill set to come along, and someone who can make plays happen instead of take whatever you can get with no risk.
But at the same time, i saw Alex start to get a lot better, and start to assert himself as one of the top 10 Qb's this year, i felt like we could do damage with him, personally i think we can win a superbowl with either QB, but i dont really expect it honestly, i would still be happy with any playoff run, that includes a win and a home game to attend. Only one team gets the ultimate prize, we are one of 6 teams that i feel has the legit shot, but we still dont have an Elite Qb no matter which one we play, and our Offense as a whole doesn't have the same type of WR's and the play making ability that truly great WR's bring.
But go KAep, i think Alex could fetch at least a 2nd round pick, there should be several teams that would be interested
Smith has gotten better every year he's been healthy. I think he would continue to improve this year and I thought he'd be in the pro bowl at the end of the season. Next year he'll likely be with another team and playing football at a top 10 level imo.
I agree he has made some strides year in and year out that were sometimes significant but not really compared to this year, he wasn't always consistent but not many QB's are right now with all these adderall addicted corners, this year i saw him beat GB, and Beat Detroit and i had a lot of hope, he was doing it with his arm, scoring a couple TD's each game, my biggest knock on Alex this last year and a half was/is he and the offense did not score enough TD's and the running game wasn't close enough a lot of times(1-5 yard line) to punch it in, so we made FG's. In several games this year though i saw him do that(score 2 or more TD's), that is whats bittersweet, but im just hoping Kaep shines and Harbaugh looks like a genius, cause that means we are winning,
I have confidence though that Jim can go back to Alex if Kaep struggles and Alex wont have missed a beat, Alex wants a ring here, and i think even if Jim looks a little foolish doing it, Alex could come step in and play at a high level right away. I dont think he will let some resentment stop that if the opportunity arises. Hes been through too much, he is pretty mentally tough.
