With 49ers QB Alex Smith out 2-3 weeks with his shoulder injury, Troy Smith will start against Denver in London on Sunday.

To be honest it doesn't really matter who their QB is if we can't stop the run. They could have Vinnie Testaverde's dad playing QB and still beat us if we get trampled on like last week...

troy smith is easily the most talented of all their QBs, when he did play for baltimore on some gadget plays he was good.

bet hes pissed at how his NFL career has played out thus far.

Hmmmm, rush Jarvis Moss and rotate in Tebow and it should give him not so pleasant flashbacks to the 2006 national championship game.

We make all QB's look like all pro. After this game I wouldn't be surprised if they start talking HOF and Troy Smith in the same sentence.

Troy Smith was an amazing QB, in COLLEGE. However, the Raiders just made us their b****. I don't think we can mock anybody or any teams QB.

What about him? Campbell is an established QB in this league who finished in the lower top half of the league LY......Very similar stats to Orton, Flacco & McNabb. (And ahead of your boy Cutler)

I say again...Troy Smith?

Let's put it this way; As Jamarcus Russell shops himself around trying to find a job, he sends out video of his game against the Broncos.

The one where he was 5/11 for 47 yards? Why in the world would he do that...That's like 45% and 4 Y/A. (Both below his season average last year)

45% vs 48%
4.3 vs 5.2

Sad that there really wasn't much difference, actually, between that game and his season averages.

It was a joke, actually. But around here, you have to explain your jokes. All Russell would have to show is the ten yard, comeback, game winning TD - is what I was thinking. The point being - the Broncos shouldn't take anybody for granted at this point. They're at the bottom, looking up.

How did I know that everyone on here would make a smart ass comment about how we will make Troy Smith look like an MVP out there??
Because it always happens?
or
The majority of people on here are smart asses?

Yea, we beat ourselves in that game more than Campbell. He just had to show up and make basic plays.

Still, I'd rather see Alex Smith than any back up. Unless we're talking about an elite starter, I always felt like it was better to have a lot of film on a team's QB than to face an unknown.

No Jason Campbell RAN and PASSED on Den. Hit guys in stride. Den didn't beat themselves ... they sucked and got crushed by a better team.

The Raiders dominated the Broncos and were a much better team that day. Going forward we'll see.
