    Nah bro, the only things that are off limits are things that happened before I was born. I was born in November of 1985.

    Also, the Alex Smith BCS bowl thing was also a joke. I was basically just admitting my homerism.

    Obviously Kaepernick is a huge talent, it just ****ing pisses me off so ****ing bad that Alex could've gone to the SuperBowl after all he's been through in the NFL, but instead it turned into another thing he has to endure.

    Yes, I 100% believe Alex would have led the Niners to the SuperBowl this year.

    Dude, everything is BYU/Utah trash talk. Where the hell have you been? Freaking Ute fans...

    Good thing I was born when the only football National Championship was won by a team in this state then. That makes it perfectly acceptable.
    I obviously missed your sarcasm as I've know about your homerism for a loooooooong time.
    Smith totally got jobbed by Harbaugh, but I'm not as convinced as you that he could have/would have taken them to the Super Bowl.

Kaep shreded Atl's defense for 16/21 233 1 td no int's and here's a little nugget of a stat... 15 of his 16 pass completions came on first or second down. By taking away Kaepernick's run option the defense was exposed in every other facet of the game.
    And this is PRECISELY why Harbaugh made the QB switch. Smith is no threat to run and he's no threat to get the ball downfield. Yes, he's extremely accurate with the short ball, but the West Coast offense is old school. Players are quicker and corners jamb the receivers. You can't rely on the 5-yd throws and consistenly getting YAC's to sustain drives. Utilize a spy to shut down Kap and the middle opens up for Vernon Davis. Double-cover VD and he clears out the middle, allowing Kap or one of the RB's to break free for good gains. And Kap can actually utilize his WR's. I wish Alex nothing but the best once he's traded. He's a good guy (and I say that as a BYU alumnus). Maybe the Jets would be a good opportunity for him.

    I don't think for a second Alex could have taken the 49'ers to the SB. Sme of that is on him, some on the defense, which is clearly not as dominant as last season. And some of that is Akers. Harbaugh and Smith played conservatively to eat up clock and get into FG range for Akers, who was the best kicker in the NFL last season. This year, Akers has been erratic - primarily because of his injuries. 49'ers need TD's, not FG's. There's no shame in being a "game manager." Trent Dilfer won a SB ring by playing like Alex, just staying within his game and not making TO's. But to be elite, SF needed a QB who was a threat to scramble or throw deep. Smith doesn't do those things. I don;t know if the 49'ers will beat Baltimore. But I do think Kap gives them a much better chance.

    Honestly, I don't even think he got "jobbed" or screwed over or anything. Harbaugh just went with what he thought was best and I can't hate on that.

    It's just beyond cruel that after all of the struggles Smith has endured through that he has to watch HIS team go to the SuperBowl after he led them to a 6-3 record and had the #3 QR rating in the NFL.

    Oh, and ZERO doubt Alex would've led them to the SuperBowl. He would've last year, but Kyle ****ing Williams had two punt return fumbles in the NFC championship game.

    That team is stacked.

    Even during the bad years for the 49ers I was always on Smith's side, feeling he was jobbed by Nolan, and screwed by Sing's coaching incompetence. If not for Williams bonehead play, smith defiantly gets to the superbowl last year.

    With that said I could definitely see Alex make the Bowl this year, however unlike you, not a sure thing in my eyes.

    ...well, you answered your own question, bubba! They kept his RUNNING under control. Certainly, not his passing. Although the Falcon secondary was the most athletic I've seen in decades, they still need to spend more time working on schemes and tackling.....and less time choreographing there celebrations when they do make a play as well as less time in the tattoo parlors! It will be interesting to see what or how the Ravens defense this kid. I for one, think they will have better success than the Falcons did.

    He got jobbed because he was the starter til he got hurt. NOBODY should lose their starting job to injury. I think this was Smith's last year in SF anyway (Hargbaugh obviously wanted Kaepernick), so Harbaugh used the injury to make the change.

    ....corners can't jam the receivers. It's an automatic 5 yard penalty and a first down! Where have you been living......the Antarctica???

    Contact is perfectly legal within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. That's how you jam a receiver.

    No!! Harbaugh decided to start Kaep because of what he did to the bears defense and because he brings more to the offense then Smith does. The only reason Kaep didn't start at the start of the season was because Harbaugh didn't feel he was ready to start, but showed it vs the Bears. That's why Smith lost his job.

    Yes. That's why the refs didn't call pass interference on that 4th and 4 play

    True, Lou Gehrig never should have started.

    As bigb mentioned, corners jam the receivers within 5 yards. The WC offense was geared towards making the 3-5 yard throw and having the receivers get YAC's. Defenses adjusted by bumping receivers off their routes, which messes up the timing of the 3 and 5 step drop and throws. Alex si only precise on the shorter yardage plays. To his credit, he finally learned how to hold onto the ball (he was fumble-prone his first few years), but he's not a good scrambler and he's not accurate down the field. You can pack it in against Smith by bringing the safeties up and just utilize single coverage deep. Can't do that against Kap.
