  • Alex Smith named 49ers starting QB

    http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/10/26/sing...l-as-49ers-qb/

    He was impressive when he came in this week. He will have his first start in about a year and it will be against Peyton Manning and the Colts. I actually think this is good timing because everyone expects him to lose this game, but as long as he doesn't stink it up he'll get a mulligan.

    Interestingly enough, the first start of Smith's career was against Peyton and the colts. Alex threw 5-6 picks that day....Is he a new man? Stay tuned to find out...

    For his sake i hope it works out. He's always been a hard worker and a class act.

    Let's see if he can salvage his career under Samarai Mike.

      Auditioning for another team at this point, but still good to see. With a host of quarterbacks coming out in 2010 I would hope the 9ers sake that he doesn't do TOO well.

        I have the utmost respect for Alex Smith. He was thrust into a really ****** situation down in San Fran and the kid has not said one word about being benched. And throughout all the talk of bust, the critiques, he has never said a word, he just shows up and does his best. Some players could stand to learn alot from him.

          He's a cerebral QB and this type when combined with a boatload of talent usually does work out even if it does take a few years to adjust to the pro game, which is understandable for him. His work ethic and character is top notch as mentioned and he has the weapons to be successful now that Crabtree is there, while both Davis and Morgan have progressed substantially from last season. It's just a matter of time before he settles down as a very good QB in this league. My only concern would be the play of his OL, although I'm guessing they can't be nearly as bad as they were earlier in the year.

              Im glad he is getting another shot. I thought he was getting shafted by Nolan and it really blew his entire season. I still remember him leading great great games against the Seahawks and the Broncos in his second year.

                  Yeah, I like Smith's whole attitude during his time spent in SF. I'd like to think his personal ordeal has made him a mentally tougher QB. He still has the tools to play at a pro bowl level, it's all about whether or not he's figured out the pro game from an analytical standpoint. If he ever learns to apply his intellect to the way the game is played on the field, look out!!!

                  I hope Smith plays well enough that SF feels comfortable going with him for the next several years. Hard not to root for the guy, even though I'm a big Terp fan and would like to see Shaun Hill keep the gig.

                      I think he can be successful. He's shown a lot to me last week coming out and almost leading a comeback. Vernon Davis is the real beneficiary here.

                        I'm feeling it this time around...I still do think he'll be successful.

                          Not really. He's got over half the seaon + playoffs to show what he can do. This isn't like San Diego where they had Drew Brees playing great, but had already drafted Rivers... This is as if San Diego put off drafting a QB for one more year... Brees could have been throwing to Larry Fitzgerald (Crabtree). Think about that **** for a second...

                            I agree with the consensus. Wish nothing the best for Alex. I want to see what he can do with Singeltary behind him.

                              While Smith's career was sketchy due to a lot of injuries and bad coaching, I still want to see a lot more before I jump back on his bandwagon. The potential was always there now let's see if he can put it together for a long stretch.
                              And proud of it!!!
