    Although I am probably alone on this one, I think Rodgers is gonna be a better player long term.


    I dont think either of them will be great, but I think Rodgers is gonna be better.



    Alex Smith just kind of doesn't seem like he has it. I think he will be okay, and start for a while but not a franchise QB by any stretch.

    I think Rodgers is significantly better and is gonna have a better career by a good margin

    What do you think?

    But Id also like to add this.Without Gore how many games would have SF won this year?
    not very many as he was SF's only real weapon this year. i give credit to alex doing as well as he has done this last year with the guys he had. i doubt that that many other young qb's could have done as well with the lack of receiving options and the lack of a consistent oline.

    I thought Smith was the better QB that year, and I don't think anything's changed my perceptions. Granted, Rodgers hasn't had the opportunity to change my perceptions, but there's been rumblings for a couple years now that they would consider moving him.

    Alex Smith; He's getting gradually better and Rodgers hasn't proven anything other than he can get hurt in the few plays that he's actually in.

    Aaron Rodgers ain't ever gonna start. Favre's a Packer for life.

    Edit: And to the dumbass that said that Alex Smith is better than Eli.... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm sorry but that's just stupid, and there's no point in even arguing about it.

    Chill. This is a forum, I'm voicing my opinion having watched a lot of Niner games over the past two years, and quite a few nationally televised Giants games. That's all.

    That said, some of you who summarily dismiss Smith as being an inferior QB to Eli are missing the point. You ask what Smith has shown-- I would reply to you what has Eli shown? At least Smith has demonstrated consistent improvement from year to year so far-- Eli hasn't even done that. Admit it, if his last name weren't Manning, the NY fans and media would have turned on him a long time ago.

    Just my .02
    I'm also voicing my opinion...you're an idiot.

    What was Eli done? 2 back to back playoffs, 24 TD's in both of his starting years. @Philly in 2006, against Denver in 2005, against the Colts this year, etc. He's had plenty of outstanding games. And no that last statement is total BS, if his last name wasn't Manning no one could be criticizing him as much.

    Alex Smith sucks, and he's going to hurt worse this year without Norv Turner.

    well aaron rodgers gets the luxury of learning from Brett Farve while Alex Smith was just thrown into the NFL. I think Alex Smith is the better player overall but Aaron Rodgers does come close.

    ETA: dhoe20, I guess we both just have our opinions. Only time will tell.

    Not only that, he was probably the least talented one of them. I have no reason to believe Aaron Rodgers will ever turn into something.

    lol.

    People just love to hate on Eli Manning. He played half the season with Tim Carter starting and David Tyree as our 3rd reciever....

    Amani toomer and Sinorice Moss both were injured over half the season. Plus our LT was as well.

    And Eli still did a hell of a lot better then Smith, even through pure stats. Throw in things like comebacks, and Eli is a hell of a lot better that it shouldnt even be brought up.

    I agree with this. I think Campbell ends up the best of the '05 QB Class. Smith being second. Walter and Rodgers never being starting caliber types.

    Alex's first year really hurt him in a lot of people's estimation, but any QB asked to make do with a starting unit of Arnaz Battle and Brandon Lloyd at WR, Kevan Barlow at RB, and Billy Bajema (a rookie, 7th round blocking specialist) at TE would have struggled, especially if he were a rookie himself, as Smith was. Honestly, I'm amazed the 2005 49ers managed to win four games, they were absolutely horrible offensively.

    I really think Smith has it in him to develop into a franchise QB. What Niner fans know that many others don't is the ridiculous work ethic-- the kid has it in him to be great (and I say kid because remember, he's only 22). You read about the amount of time he puts into studying the game, the offense, and his opponents, and then take into account his physical gifts (mobility and a better than advertised arm on a 6-4 frame), and the fact that he's already developed into a team leader and you would be like us Niner fans-- you'd start wondering how he could possibly fail over the long run.

    SO in fact, I'll go you one step further. Alex Smith, in the long run, won't just be better than Aaron Rodgers-- he'll be better than Eli Manning, better than Ben Roethlisberger, and better than at least 2 out of 3 of last years first round QBs (Jay Cutler scares me) because he has all the intangibles of leadership, toughness, and intelligence and is very physically gifted as well. I honestly don't see too many other young QBs out there who are as balanced across the board.
    I'll be the first person to say that I feel that Alex Smith was being ripped on unfairly last year, and I also believe that you have to give 4 years before you can truely evaluate a qb, but to say as much as you did is a stretch right now.

    He threw 16 TDs and 16 INTs, thats hardly a 2nd year leap. Hell, for all of Eli's scrutiny, he had a much better 2nd season than Alex Smith. And he gets ragged on badly. So to say what you said about Smith is very bold right now.

    I think he'll develop into a fine player, and I think he'll improve more this upcoming year, but let's not go overboard here.
