I think CK has the luck factor to be super successful in the NFL... Not saying he doesn't have
the athletic ability and talent to be a good or great NFL QB, but what
adapted kid, who was given up by his mom as a child, gets to live out his childhood dreams of becoming the QB of the
team he wanted to play for as a kid.
When you look at Montana, Rodgers, Brady for example, Montana had Bill
Walsh as the HC and Rice etc that's luck...
Brady drafted late but took over a good team and won the SB that year.
When you compare what happened to Alex Smith and Arron Rodgers, you
see how much luck has to do with success in the NFL. Rodgers got to
sit behind Favre, learned from Favre and inherited a play-off caliber
team. AS however was thrown in as a rookie on a fail team with a failed
FO and HCs.... The 49ers failed when the Yorks took over and not until
last season when Harb was hired the 49ers were pathetic. Now Harb has
created a great team with one of the best Defense in the league, AS is
on his way out and CK is getting to live out his childhood dream when CK
replace AS over a concussion and never look back, what that tells you
is AS never had the luck to begin with, he had his chance last season
and that was it, AS got the rug pulled under him just as his luck was
getting better with the 49ers lol, if that's not bad luck I don't know what is...
