Gabbert has better natural tools than Alex. Bigger, stronger, faster, better arm. I think Blaine even beat him on the Wonderlic.
He has the tools to be a similar player, but Alex's mental toughness and perseverance is special. 99 out of 100 QBs would have never been able to overcome such a disastrous start to a career.. We'll see what Gabbert is made of.
Jim harbaugh made Alex Smith.
He can do the same thing with Gabbert.
I do not want to start a firestorm, but I would give Alex Smith, himself, some credit in his remaking.
I am not denying the import of Harbaugh, but Alex also did well in KC with Andy Reid.
Hopefully, Gabbert shows the toughness and resilience that Alex Smith had.
