Try calling BS on that..............and he is going right back to mediocre talent in KC..........I give him two years in any other town, KC will keep him around for 3-4 then leave like Cassell did.
Anyone thinking Alex Smith just all at once threw a switch after years of mediocrity doesn't understand football .
You didnt even know he was drafted. Your logic about smith is all over the place. Alex smith was a bad to mediocre QB. Singletary and nolan did him no favors. The switch you're talking about? Ya that's Jim Harbaugh. He knew how to utilize smith. He knew his strengths and weaknesses. All you have to do is watch the DIFFERENCE in the offenses smith was running. He got better cause someone knew how to play him in an offense that benefited him. You assume he rode the bench as a rookie? He was INJURED. Nolan took him out because of that. 2nd year? Well he played every single snap during that season. So your "riding the bench" assumption is about as stupid as not knowing he was drafted by the niners.
