Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

I don’t think anyone is expecting him to be Tom Brady or Rodgers. Just like 90% of the QBs in this league he needs a good supporting cast. Smith has limitations just like Cousins does.

I appreciate some knowledge from someone who’s watched him closely but I’ve seen enough of him too over the years to know what we’re getting.

Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

I sure am hoping a lot of Radio commentators are going to be shocked by the improvement a stable qb situation, WITH a qb that wants to be here, will make. On Sirius NFL network, there is a lot of -maybe not Cousins love but definitely Alex Smith dismissal. Comments in the vain of, they didn't improve their qb, but it's probably a wash. I think AS has a 10 year track record of winning with different players/coaches/organizations, and I expect that to continue here.

I don't think he's an upgrade when it comes to stats, but he's an upgrade in situational football. That is what wins games, he never turns the ball over.

If the situation was reversed, I would like to hear from fans who were invested in my new QB.
Thanks for your insight about the team's new QB. Good luck this season.

Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

Just a quick reminder..

Alex Smith has made the playoffs 6 of the last 7 years... Once again let that sink in.

Good day all

Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

Cool customer, professional, and knowledgeable...kinda nice not to be hearing the same shit about qb going into the summer that’s we’ve talked about the last several years.

Ball is ball...but I kinda wish Alex would have expanded to “ball is ball and now the cowboys, philly and ny blondstreaks can suck my balls.” Something to that effect.

He will have a leg up on Kirk if he doesn't shill any T-shirts.

This would be a fantastic point, if he wasn't dependent on 44 other players also making contributions on game day to get the W.

I agree.
In a year when a second string QB that some teams gave up on wins a Super Bowl/MVP over one of the best ever QB's, it is time to stop under-valueing position players and team.

But it still points to AS. He has had different coaches, different surrounding players, different schemes. And still he has led his teams to playoff appearances. That reflects on his leadership, ability as a passer, and intangibles like game awareness and selflessnes.

Obviously only time will tell, but i am real high on AS directing Grudens offense.

I agree. And dependent on 44 other players? Well, the only QB I've seen that has been able to throw a TD pass to himself was Marcus Mariota in the playoffs - even Brady couldn't do that lol!

And I hope Smith IS dependent on 44 other players. That means 44 other players are stepping up to get the W. If it's all on Alex Smith, then that means the rest of the team sucks.
