Well, Alex Smith did leave..
Yup we traded Captain Checkdown... and I could not be happier.
Its crazy when you think about it all...polar opposite QB's and both get their teams to the playoffs...Alex throws for 400 yards and barely lost and CK "was" our offense (running and throwing) and we barely lost. I'm a fan of both players.
But going forward, no doubt, CK has a long ways to go re: reading defenses, utilizing the 2nd and 3rd options and his check-downs and stop relying so much on throwing through DB's (his arm strength) and his legs. When he settles down and matures and everything slows down for him, he has the chance to be one of the absolute greats, no doubt. He's got all the intangibles (esp. work ethics) you want.
