    When Hill took over the first time it was because Alex was injured, and he hasn't been healthy since. I still think Alex deserves a shot to compete.

    • i think that smith will do better when he is not expected to be a savior. i think that he should be able to compete for the spot from a back up role. i agree that he still has potential, he is still among one of the youngest qb in the league. i think a late round qb would be a good choice, and the more i hear about raji the more i like him.

        You have a link to that article because I would like to read it? I am a huge Smith supporter but I am worried about depending on Smith. I have to wonder how damaged that shoulder is with the injury he sustained before the start of the '08 season. I do think it is wise to bring Smith back at a reduced price, especially since SF has already invested $30 million in him. I am crossing my fingers that he can start throwing full strength by OTAs.

          Hope so we could sure use him.

          • Since we were talking about him, here is an update on Alex Smith as well as why Linehan said no.

              • My 49ers big board as of 1/22/09

                1. QB - Matt Stafford (not going to get to us)
                2. OT - Eugene Monroe (probably the player I want most in this draft)
                3. OT - Michael Oher (has elite upside and can flatout dominate)
                4. OT - Andre Smith (I prefer the other 2 OTs just a tad bit more)
                5. OLB - Brian Orakpo (Strength, smarts, speed/quickness - he's got it all)
                6. CB - Malcolm Jenkins (going to be a great CB at the next level)
                7. LB - Aaron Curry (flatout stud - could be very versatile both at ILB/OLB)
                8. NT - BJ Raji (I'm sold on him, fits our need perfectly, kind of hoping we take him)
                9. WR - Michael Crabtree (Don't really want a 1st Rd WR, but I think he's the real deal)
                10. OLB - Everett Brown (I like the speed/strength combo, just not sure I like him though)
                The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                  Here is an honest question. When are you fellow 49ers fans willing to call it quits with Alex Smith?

                  I know, I know. He has had a different OC every year, he has been injured, etc, etc...

                  What if the same thing happens this upcoming year?

                  "Well, its another new OC, give him another year."

                  I, honestly, am worn out with the whole situation. And I dont understand peoples fears of drafting another QB high because we got burned several years ago.

                  Here is another question. Who do you think will have a better pro career? Alex Smith or Mark Sanchez? I'm worried Alex Smith has been through too much, and maybe not all of it is his fault, but I dont know if he can come back from what he's been through and make it in this league now.

                  I am ready for a fresh start at the QB position. Cut Alex Smith. Draft Mark Sanchez and have him sit a year behind Shaun Hill. Start Mark Sanchez in 2010.

                  • I think Sanchez is a real good prospect, but the problem is that he needs MORE playing time right now, rather than sitting for a year. He's been sitting for the past couple of years and then someone will draft him and make him sit another year? It's just a real risky situation that I'd rather not be in.

                      I would back the idea of taking a QB at 10 but aside from Stafford, I dont like any of the top prospects.

                      • Um no just because one 1st round bust is on his way out doesn't mean you replace him with another one. The Niners need to build the rest of the team, see what happens with Hill and go from there. The idea of even thinking about a QB at #10 is crazy.

                        • I found this regarding free agency and the Niners written by Dan Arkush and I was wondering if anyone agreed with this?

                          For the third straight year, the Niners are expected to be in good position to aggressively shop the free-agent market. Has the money the team doled out for CB Nate Clements two years ago (eight years, $80 million, $22 million guaranteed) and DE Justin Smith last spring (six years, $45 million, $20 million guaranteed) been well spent? That’s an appropriate question, considering the decidedly mixed reviews both Clements and Smith received in 2008. “They overpaid for Clements,” a team insider told PFW. “He’s great in the locker room, but he has not been the shutdown Champ Bailey-type corner they envisioned. Look at the Dallas game, when he got torched by Terrell Owens. As for Smith, his role has really changed. They thought he could be a starting outside linebacker, but he just doesn’t have enough speed. He can take over games and collapse the pocket at times, but he’s not the 15-sack guy the team had hoped for.”

                              I dont see the logic of this, but its your opinion. Here is mine...

                              Lets say we build the rest of the team and Shaun Hill isnt what you all think he can be. Then what happens? We draft a QB more than likely and he could take a year or two to develop anyways. Then the core of our younger players are 3 to 5 years older by this time.

                              Give me the younger QB of the future now, and have him ready to go in a year or two. Better than another decade of losing or hovering around .500.

                                Is this the Jimmy Williams we had a few years ago or the Jimmy Williams from Va Tech.
