Smith, Tolzien thread. Yet again

Originally posted by ninermedic:
Not every player has a guy sitting behind him who is potentially better. Justin Smith got hurt, no one came off the bench and took his job. If Dashon Goldson gets hurt, I doubt CJ Spillman or Trenton Robinson is going to step onto that field while Dashon is recovering and take his job. BUT--if you have that much depth, THAT'S A GOOD THING FOR YOUR TEAM. The better player should always be on the field, right? If you're a team player you should be happy that the team is being given the best chance to win...not that it wouldn't be a tough pill to swallow.

A player that lies about injury and plays anyway risks not just the team's well-being (by playing poorly) but his own. Suppose Alex plays through the concussion, gets hit again and has another, more severe concussion? He's negatively impacted his career, his future marketability, and his long-term health. Bottom line, players still have the responsibility to be smart about themselves and their careers, so I don't buy this "players will be motivated to lie" (any more than already exists in macho NFL culture).

Then you doubt self preservation. These players will justify it by saying they're not really hurting the team and that they're not really risking themselves. In Alex's example, he possibly could have played through it if he had denied it, the new rules were what kept him out of the game. Guys play hurt all the time, this is no different.
Smitty deserves to play, for at least one quarter

Are you f**king kidding me son? Alex Smith plays one iota of this game and Atlanta smokes us in the first half.

It's over. OVER.

Niners got smoked in the first half with Kaep.
Neither Kaep or Smith plays defense.
Let's not do this. Just be happy for the TEAM.

Did like seeing Alex so happy for his teammates in the locker room. Class act to the end.

Lmao and Smith brings us back for a road win?

This is the last time I speak on the topic, but the notion that Alex achieves the same success in this or any other year as Kaepernick is just laughable. Take a hint from Jacksonville's owner: "Don't be delusional."

Joe Montana. Steve Young. Colin Kaepernick. That says it all.

Over and out.
Next year, Kaep will be playing against Smith n the SB

This game was eerily similar to the Eagles game last year, so it could have happened.

We'll never know.

In any case, Smith is surely wanting to start, but I'm sure he's happy to be on this team, going to the SB, and he's probably ecstatic for many of his teammates who he's been friends with for a long time now (Gore, Staley, Vernon, etc.)

Thats kind of shiity to say. He would do nothing in any loss Keap has gotten but would do thing in any of his wins either. He has done a lot more than you have given credit for. The first half of the season was his and he is a big reason we are here now.

Conjecture at best, but mostly just hate. Alex never made comebacks last season or the for 233 yards.

Colin was amazing, but if you have to hate on Alex to enjoy what Colin does it says something about character.
Felt great knowing we had the best back up in the NFL there!!!

Go niners

THIS!! Enough of this foolish sentiment. Alex has been well paid to do his job, Kap just does it better.
I hope Alex gets to play in the Superbowl....It means we are blowing out either the Ravens or the Pats!

Smith has brought us back on numerous occasions. Smith had a lot of success with Harbaugh and I have no doubt that he could have helped us win #6. He was a big reason we were successful for the last two years...if you don't see that then you're delusional. I'm happy for Kaep but he got handed a Super Bowl ready team, he never had to play on crappy teams like Smith. Smith deserves credit and deserves to play in the Super Bowl.
