Well of course Alex Smith should be appreciated, but I disagree with the premise that he isn't appreciated with the 49ers. The 49ers stuck with him through thick and thin I think mostly because they understood the main reasons behind his lack of success. But appreciating him doesn't mean that the 49ers shouldn't start the better player.
If we lose Alex to FA next season then he will go to another team and do well there. So it's not like Alex is not appreciated. His time will come again next season. Many teams need a guy like Alex. But I hope he stays because he would be the best backup in the league.
ITA with the Rodgers and it disgusts me to see "49er fans" continue gleefully kicking Alex when he's down and assume we wouldn't be doing as well if he was still the QB when the fact is he's had far better performances than anything his replacement has shown. The hypocrisy and double standards are laughable. But I should've learned long, long ago not to let the idiocy bother me or waste another moment of my time.
