We can argue all day whether or not Alex was THE quarterback for this team, but Im glad that experiment is laid to rest. As great as he was these past 2 years, every time he fumbled, made a bad read, threw an INT, or failed to lead a comeback just brought back all those old memories and we were quick to point out that it was "the same old Alex". He was a decent QB, a very classy guy, a very committed guy, but in all truth his time ended in San Fran when the "we want Carr" chants were echoed at Candlestick 3 years ago.
I hope he has success wherever he goes, although I'll be honest i dont think he's going to get close to winning a SB, and I wouldnt be surprised if he ends up like Jon Kitna or Kyle Orton as a backup just traversing through the league.
Thanks for all the good memories Alex (and the bad ones too). You'll be missed by some, until we win the big one and then your legacy will be no more than a tiny blip in 49er lore.
