I also watched tony romo last night and remembered how he started off hot last year, then was picked off a bunch of times and how now he is having a great year. I personally envisioned Alex playing like tony romo is now, being elusive, not taking his eyes off the down field recievers, running, and throwing on the run. I'm thinking that Alex smith will never reach his potential because he plays it safe ie, he will never know what type of throws he can and can't make because he never attempts them during a game and doesn't take any chances. (note the pick that he had was because there was miscommunication on the reciever and alex's part, not because it was a tough throw). I think that throwing interceptions is crucial in a qb's development to know what he can an can't do physically...and the fact that alex doesn't throw any and is usually under 200yds passing might be preventing him from developing. What do you guys think?

Wow dude, that was a great and thoughtfull post. I totally agree

Alex Smith has all the physical tools to be a great quarterback. He has the brains to be a great quarterback. The problem with Alex Smith is that he cannot -- for whatever reason -- tie his physical tools to his brains. Will he ever be able to? I don't know. Honestly, I doubt it.

Wouldn't you be cautious if your WR couldn't catch any passes? Think about it, he has throw the ball well in certain situations and then the WRs drop the ball or get picked off. You can't tell me that our WRs have helped the situation, they are killing his confidence as well! How would you feel if you throw a GREAT ball and the WR drops it, s**t I would feel like crap. No one is helping this guy, not the WR or the coaches.

Now we have Martz and some WR, things will get better...
I remember in that seattle game he threw this deep pass to djack (underthrown) but god damn dude still f**king dropped it!
I also remember an absolutely perfect 50-yard rainbow that went right through Antonio Bryant's hands in the endzone. I also remember a 40 yard fast-ball thrown on a line to Vernon Davis which was clearly too hot to handle. I also remember an out to the opposite side which covered about 35 yards on a line to Arnez Battle, a throw at least half the starting QB's in the league simply cannot make.

I know many here will simply not agree, but to this long-time Niner fan, Smith's long passes look like John Brodie throws and if you ever saw Brodie play, you know he had a beast of an arm. And, to me, many of his sideline shots get out there so quickly, they remind me of Elway throws.

Please don't base your opinions on the accuracy or strength of his throws on last season. I hate to break it to you guys, but most of the time when a QB has dislocated his throwing shoulder, it's injured reserve and the season's over. I think the kid is too tough for his own good.

Alex will succeed, if not this year with the 49ers then with another team. He will not be kind to Nolan in his memoirs.
