In response to leatherhelmet's comment:
Up until last season Alex Smith was a BUST. This isn't exactly Brady replacing Bledsoe............
Hmmmm.... folks here love to blame the Pats coaching staff when things don't go well, especially when Brady is somewhat less than stellar at th end of close/losing games. But, here we're going after Alex Smith, he of the 6 OC's in 6 years. Funny that isn't a problem with him, but it is with Tom Terrific.
Harbaugh should have done this in training camp, NOT after Smith gets a concussion. Now, everyone who's sipped the Kool Aid will say that Smith must, no, HAS to be the ultimate savior should Collin go down with an injury OR have success catch up with him and he becomes, well, mediocre. And, what if he's not? QB's need to stay in a game rythm. He should have brought Collin into games that the 49'ers were safely ahead, if he was sooo curious abiut his upside. Bottom line is that he drafted Collin, and NOT Smith.
Can't wait to see IF the 49'ers lose a few, and lose a home bye, and then lose an early round playoff game. Can't wait to hear the excuses. Then, when Smith becomes a FA, I'd love to see him go someplace with a credible WR and decent RB's (Cardinals, anyone?) in their same division, and stir things up. Curt Warner, anyone, after he was dissed in St Louis and NY?
