Here are the teams that are well settled at QB based on actual play (not the amount of money they have committed):
These are on the bubble:
All the rest would be glad to have Alex Smith as their starting QB. Question is: Would Alex be willing to go to any of the others? There are some very bad teams out there and they would be willing to give up a lot to have consistent QB play.
Oh my God...
You are seriously a parody of yourself at this point.
San Diego: Yeah, they're going to replace computer number monster Rivers with freak'n Alex Smith. Yeah, I'm sure that would happen.
Dallas: Jerry Jones is just chomping at the bit to replace Tony Romo with frickin Alex Smith to be the QB of America's team.
Baltimore: On the bubble with Joe Flacco. Surely Ozzie Newsome is drooling over ALEX SMITH.
Detroit: On the bubble thinking of replacing a guy who threw for 5,000 yards last year with...ALEX SMITH.
What's next, are the 49ers considering bring the great Derek Smith out of retirement to replace Patrick Willis? Remember, Derek Smith was epic and awesome, and Willis has a long way to go to be as good as Mr. Whiff, the weekly human truck victim.
If you were a GM, your team wouldn't win a single game in the NFL.
Also, I noticed no mention of the Dolphins, who have their young QB for the future and declined to pursue Alex this past off-season. Why would they change their mind now?
Alex Smith would have 2-3 potential suitors at the most.
