    Smith seems to have the work ethic, dedication, team mentality to survive but this team stinks on both sides of the ball. He's going to have another tough year and will probably have a tough time next year too. Maybe David Carr might be the best example. For him to survive I dont think they can soley rebuild thru the draft they need to go after key FA when they are available. Is Branch a possibility ?
    I pretty much agree with everything you said. The kid has the tools, as well as the mind to succeed, but it's gonna take time, and a gm to surround him with talent before he's able to showcase a lot of what they saw in him when they drafted him.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

        Too early to tell. He's got a better chance with Norv Turner as his coach. Norv's a lousy head coach, but he's a good OC and an even better QB coach.

          Too early to tell right now. Give him a year or two more and ask this question again.

            I agree, the QB position is the hardest to judge because it usually takes a player a couple years before you can tell if he's going to be good or bad.

            Peyton Manning wasn't good his rookie year, and look where he ended up. It just takes time for a QB to develop because it's a totally different game in the NFL. Faster, new defensive looks, more athletic, quicker decisions, better accuracy, etc...

            I think Alex with be a very good QB, he was dynamite against our first team defense in their first preseason game. But it'll take some time.

              No. He is still young, and like everyone has said, he needs some weapons around him. Vernon Davis is a start.

              At least Smith's got a good head on his shoulders, unlike Ryan Leaf.

                  So far Alex Smith has looked pretty good in the pre-season. The only thing holding him back is the learning curve from Shotgun offense to NFL offense is substantial.

                      i think he'll become a good solid starter but nothing spectacular.
