Disagree with you Marvin, Alex Smith would have had a better game vs the Rams and vs the Seahawks. The 49ers would have won one of those games with Alex Smith as QB. He knows both teams way better then Kaep and plays very well in Seattle. This is what happens when you screw around late in the season with the QB's. Jimmy H is not perfect he's made mistakes and this one was huge. We win one of those games and were the 2nd seed, now we need some help to make the 2nd seed.
i think smith vs seattle might not have equated to a win but i think the niners play a different game offensively with him, the pace of the game is slower and the score is much closer than it was
Yup true that. We still lose, but don't lose that bad. Smith handles himself much better in that environment. Also, Alex Smith wins both of those Rams games. Meaning we'd be 12-3. Some may argue that we wouldn't have beaten New England with Smith, which I don't buy at all. Smith can play in shootouts too (Saints game). Anyways, we'd still be 11-4 had Smith somehow not been able to beat New England because he somehow can't make any of those throws That means we'd still be the #2 seed. I'm a fan of Kap and think he has tons of potential, but don't think it was right to put him in as the starter for the 2012 49ers.
Kap needs to learn how to engineer those epic long drives that Alex used to. That would go a long way towards helping the kid out. We need him to step up bad for our superbowl run.
He just came off one of the worst QB performances we've had in years, up there with Smith's Giants debacle earlier in the year. Having him go back to a steady ground and pound like we did prior to the Bears game, and away from all that cutsie pistol stuff would help him out quite a bit.
