Completing less than 50% of his passes against one of the worst secondaries in the NFL, okay. He proved once more last night why this team traded him away, he is simply incapable of making the big plays when the other team is scoring points and that will never change.
This. We are talking about a QB with 9 years under his belt vs. a QB with much more talent and just about 1 season under his belt.
If Smith has not changed in 9 years, what would make people think he'd be any different now that he is gone?
I supported Smith when he was here and I'll support Kap the same way but the difference in ability is clear. When Kap isn't over-thinking he is a spark plug to the offense.
Kap is one of the most physically gifted QBs in the league. He's proven that he can do it before so IMO it's just a matter of time before it all clicks for him and he will be the QB we have all waited for. Most young guys slump in their second year. In fact, Drew Brees didnt become elite until his last year in SD.
People seem to forget that our passing offense struggled with Smith too. Other than the QB, nothing has changed with this offense. Gore is the work horse, our passing offense sucks, and our defense keeps us in games.
