Alex showed potential in 2006 with Norv as OC and finally produced when he had great coaching with Harbaugh at his side. Also he had 10 Td's that year by the Lions game week 5. after that they turned up the running game and he wasn't asked to throw for crazy yards or TD's. also our WR core wasn't great (see NFCC Game) and Crabtree didn't explode until 2nd half of last season.
the team signing multiple FA busts isn't on Alex that's on nolan and crew.
Kaepernick > Alex no arguement here but to say Alex was horrible isn't true he was average that's it. he was over drafted...we wanted another Joe or Steve and he wasn't that but he wasn't a "bust".
Yes Alex was a bust, he was the whipping boy by many people. He never produced. A #1 Pck should of been a all pro, pro bowler, year in year out. Screw coaching staff. He was a 1yr wonder in 2011, then got hurt in 2012. He was injury prone. I don't get why people still defend Alex, look how bad he played against our 1st team defense. Same old Alex, a game manager. Should be a 30+ TDs a year, not 17 TDs. He played safe.
Jenkins showed potential in preseason. Because of his lack of playing time in 2012 he is automatically a bust is false. He never got the reps, he had 5 guys above him. You never call a player a bust after 1 season now a days. Alex did show some potential under Norv, but did we make the playoffs? No, and what happend when he left, Alex went back to garbage. His best yr was 2011. And thats awful compared to rooks like Wilson, RG3, Luck, Cam Newton.
