Preseason. Lots of people around here want to see Alex do well. If this was a game of any magnitude then I personally would want him to suck it up. But seeing how it's preseason and how I want the guy to do well in KC it would be nice to see him show up and play well against a stout defense. We already know our team is going to be legit, but not so sure what Alex can do. I know it may sound somewhat double crossing but again the fact that it's preseason kind of makes it a whole different story.
That being said I don't want our defense to come out and totally suck it up just for Alex to have a good day. But it would still be nice to see him show some command and show that maybe a different change of scenery is benefitting him.
And personally I know this has been discussed but I don't see the big deal in rooting for 2 teams. 49ers will always be my team, but it's kind of nice to have another team outside the division/conference I can now watch and root for.
