  • POLL: Alex Smith or Mike Singletary

    While the majority of us probably want both of them to be gone, if you had to choose one or the other to come back in 2011, which one would you pick?

    My vote goes to Alex Smith.

    Mike Singletary
    14.81%

    I don't see how anyone could possibly pick Mike Singletary if you have to pick one of them to come back. To be honest, I can actually see Alex coming back if he finishes out the season well. The new coach will want his own young QB but keeping around Alex as a backup would be smart.

      I hate Alex Smith. He is a good guy and he is smart but he does not have the instincts or bravado(sp?) to be a QB. I would take anyone over him

        I thought I was supposed to vote on who I did not want to come back. I would rather keep Alex than Singletary.

          Edit: I misunderstood as well, dump the HC & keep Alex.

          Voted Singletary b/c his dumb decisions regarding personnel trump Alex Smith's dumb decisions on the field.

          And Singletary does more damage -- difficult to believe if you watched Alex this yr but it's true. A fraud HC like that can sink an entire franchise.

              Sorry Brent/Lizard.

              You vote for the person that you would rather have in 2011. I should have worded it better. Sorry.

                  Yeah but since Ness likes to blame Alex and no one else, I wanted to make a poll to where you MUST keep one or the other for 2011. I mainly wanted to see everyone's opinion on who they would rather keep if they had to choose between the two.

                    Rather keep Alex over Singletary. At least Alex won't make a bonehead mistake like running the ball 3x up the gut.

                      You seriously made a poll because of what I said in another thread. Wow. I just hope you aren't losing sleep from what we are talking about.

                      Yeah this isn't a childish tactic at all. O.o

                      The fact that what we were discussed prompted you to make a poll, based on a misconstrued understanding of what were were talking about no less, is quite pathetic in my opinion.

                      By the way I never didn't blame Singletary for what he's done. You failed to comprehend what I was talking about and at this point you're just reiterating statements that I never made in this first place.

                          Because of what you said in regards to Alex/Troy/Sing gave me the idea for the poll and since I never posted one before, I figured what the hell, mine as well.

                          And no, im not losing any sleep over any of this. LOL. And while this topic may be childish, its not any more childish than arguing with you back and forth every other day.

                          In regards to Alex, you never blame Sing. You basically just bash Alex over and over again like he's the only one to blame. My comprehension of what you've said is actually quite clear -

                          -You prefer Troy over Alex
                          -You think Troy gives the team a better chance to win the last two games even though you've never stated why you think that
                          -You blame Alex whenever he plays poor but never anyone else like he's the only one at fault
                          -You use Troy not being at 49ers TC or pre-S. as to why he sucks and took so long to get used to the playbook when instead, you should be blaming Sing for signing Troy over keeping Davis on the active roster
                          -You somehow think Troy will be a 49er next year over Alex. No damn way. Either Alex will return or both will be gone

                          The above sums up what you've been saying for the last few weeks so unless im wrong (and correct me if I am), I've comprehended what you've said perfectly.

                            Fact of the matter is I said something that got under your skin and you decided to make a poll about it on a message board as some self-gratifying retaliation. In my book that is definitely more childish than having a civil discussion about football everyday.

                            In any case, you didn't comprehend what I was mentioning earlier in full. I have blamed Mike Singletary for the team's failure. Especially a lot earlier in the season. You can go back and look if you wish. Why you've ignored this or accused me of not blaming Mike and only Alex for the team's failures I don't know.

                            As for Troy Smith, I do prefer him over Alex. I think he's a better quarterback at this point in time. Him not being here in training camp and not having that many snaps is a disadvantage. Those are facts. Alex Smith has not had the same disadvantage. Yet he's played worse in my opinion. I actually never liked the signing of Troy in the first play and did criticize Singletary earlier in the year for not keeping Nate Davis. This is the second or third time I've told you that. Why you continue to ignore it is on you.

                            Recently, I've focused on Alex Smith for my criticism on the team as far as the players are concerned. But he isn't the only one I've complained about.

                            And as for Troy being here next season, if he plays well the next couple of games I could see him coming back as a backup. I think Alex Smith's days are over and he isn't coming back. Especially after not doing anything for the last six seasons and also due to most likely not finishing out this season. It just isn't going to look good for the franchise. Not everyone shares your opinion that Alex has played better compared to Troy. So that angle is not 100% sure. It's fairly split if you look at other boards and people's opinions. You should at least consider the possibility that Alex leaves and Troy stays. Don't be surprised if it happens. Me, I don't care. Both aren't going to be the leaders of this franchise. So they can both jet. But if I wanted a backup, I'm probably taking Troy between the two if I had to choose.

                            Hopefully that clears things up for you.

                              People I work with get under my skin. Someone who I dont know and have never met and never will could never get under my skin. While you blamed Singletary earlier in the season, you havent lately, just Alex which is the real reason why I made this poll. I wanted to see who everyone would keep if they had to pick one or the other. But hey, if you want to think that I posted this poll as some sort of revenge or whatever, go ahead as you're free to think that but just because you think it doesnt make it true.

                              You blamed Sing earlier in the season but why not lately? He's still to blame just as much as anyone else this season but like you said, you blamed him earlier this season. Why is that? If you're going to blame Alex, you should have Sing's name right next to his.

                              You seem to ignore responding as to why you think Troy is better than Alex. Still havent posted why you think Troy is better. Troy not being at TC or pre-season has nothing to do with him or Alex. He was a Raven. How could he possibly be here for TC and PS? And if that's such a disadvantage like you claim it to be, shouldnt a head coach like Sing know that and take that under consideration before signing him to replace Davis? And how has Alex not been at a disadvantage here in SF? Since he was drafted, he's been at a disadvantage. Nolan, Singletary and whoever else instilled in him to be cautious when playing which is why he makes mistakes he probably wouldnt if he didnt have that drilled into his mindset for the last seven years. He's had a different OC in every season including this year. He's had Nolan screw him over. He's had Sing screw him over. Even when Alex is starting, he gets screwed time and time again because of Sing's crappy mentality that running the ball 40 times a game is going to produce wins even though it obviously hasnt worked that way but yet, Sing still does the same thing. You cant blame Alex or crap like that when his damn head coach is basically telling him and the OC what plays to run and then he (Sing) bitches about it when they dont work. While you may have bashed Sing for signing Troy in favor of Davis, you sure as hell dont sound like it right now and considering the fact that Troy has done less and worse than Alex, I dont see how anyone could have liked or now like that signing. And considering the fact that Sing decided to sign Troy and demote Davis despite the fact that Troy was at the Ravens TC and PS, Sing still signed him which should tell everyone that he sucks as a head coach and obviously doesnt have a clue which in-turn will only hurt Alex, Troy or whoever the damn QB happens to be.

                              I just dont understand why you've focused on Alex when it comes to bashing players. He cant control what the other 52 players do or dont do. If a WR doesnt run their correct route, how can that be on Alex? I personally blame Alex 50% with the other 50% on Sing. The only difference is that if Alex actually had good stable coaching around him, you could actually be good. Sing could have a Pro Bowl squad and he would still find a way to screw it up.

                              Alex and Troy being here in 2011 is 50/50 for each but I think if there's a new head coach, that head coach will lean towards Alex especially if its a veteran head coach who's offensive minded and knows what he's doing. I personally would keep Alex over Troy and Carr but Davis over all three if it came down to that. I dont see how keeping Alex in 2011 hurts the franchise or the team or the players because as you've seen this season and in the past when Alex wasnt even playing (J.T. O'Sullivan ring a bell?), he's far from being our biggest negative or problem. That would go to ownership followed by management followed by the coaching staff. But whatever, we'll just have to wait and see what happens. As long as Sing is gone and we get Gruden, I'll be a happy camper.

                              And yeah, crystal clear.
