"I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes
Weird. I wonder why Alex was benched. I thought he was good.
It looks like Kaepernick took control of the starting job today in New Orleans. He had another solid performance, and showed that he is capable of doing more than Alex Smith. Kaepernick's athleticism allows him to take less sacks, and he has a much stronger arm with more accuracy on the deep ball. I see Smith either being traded, or cut at the end of the season. The question now is what team with Alex Smith end up with next.
Worst head coach in the NFL? Romeo or Norv?
20 jazzfanz dollars says the Niners will need Alex again before the seasons over.
I'm a total Alex Smith homer, but I really like what I've seen from Kaep. He has a good arm, good vision, and can scramble. As a 49ers fan, I wouldn't be disappointed to see him continue to do what he's done the last 2 games.
That being said, I don't believe I've seen the last of Alex the Niner.
I really don't think we'll see Alex Smith take another meaningful snap for the 49ers. They have to stay with Kaepernick at this point. Alex will definitely be leaving the 49ers after the season is over. If he's still on the roster come April 1st, the 49ers have to pay him a guaranteed $9 million. He'll either be cut or traded before then. I've been a big supporter of Alex on the 49ers since he was drafted, but I was low on patience just before Harbaugh arrived. I've been happy to see the success he's had with Harbaugh, but his limitations have still be present. I wish him all the best with his career moving forward, but it's time to see where Kaepernick can take this team.
No doubt, Kaep adds an explosiveness factor to the offense that Alex doesn't.
Just sayin, I bet Alex will be back before the season ends for one reason or another.
Call it a gut feeling.
There's a better chance of Katie showing up in this thread after the 49ers lose than Alex Smith playing again this season.
I'm with UGLI here. Alex Smith will taste redemption.
