Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

And lastly - I've heard from multiple people with WFT that Alex Smith looks very good. This is a real competition. Buckle up.

I think he's still got a long way to go before we're talking about a real competition. It's Dwayne's job.

Agreed. It's an amazing come back story, but Dwayne's the future of this team.

If Smith's able to compete for this job, then try to get some value back and trade him IMO. Even if you have to take part of the cap hit.

They had just reached a point after two weeks where they need to see how he handles being in a pocket when the play goes off-schedule and when he has to react. It could still be some time before they put him in such a situation, but until then any talk about him seriously challenging for the starting job will be muted. -- John Keim

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

First, I have great respect for Alex Smith. He has great integrity, dedication, and courage.

Second, I fear for his safety and I hope he'll decide to move on from NFL football. He has a young family to consider and there are many other career paths he could take to achieve success and happiness.

Best wishes and good luck, Alex, whatever you decide.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

My hopes are that he is truly capable of handling football again, and that he sticks on as the backup QB and mentor for Haskins, even if for one or two more years before trading him if he doesn't retire. Yes, he's an expensive backup, but if he can really help Haskins turn into a true franchise QB for the next 12 years like he helped Maholmes, it's probably worth the price.

If he has to come in to win a game, that would be an amazing thing to watch.

I too have the same fears as most people about him playing full-time.

With any luck, he'll end up a coach for us in some capacity. (QB Coach!?)

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Yeah, someone may have had to stand there all day to get that throw combo so they could tweet it out.

I can show you countless AMAZING Haskins throws from this offseason.

Alex COULD come back and take the job. I don't expect it Week 1. He needs to see what his leg does in real football action at full speed, against defenders. His arm looks great, but there's a lot more to this comeback than being able to throw. A lot of Smith's success came from his ability to run, escape and improvise. He was a much better runner than given credit for.
