Alex Smith Question?
 
if alex simth goes 6 games 10 int wih no td will the 49ers bench him and put Dilfer in ?

Absolutely not, that would KILL Smith's confidence. If the 9ers start him opening day, he should start the rest of the season barring injury.

no they wouldnt but he probably wont put up those numbers anyway

Smith is so unpredictable being so young, the point of predicting stats on a very young QB is meaningless.

They, might. But I wouldn't. I'd give him the full year, with a statement at the beginning that he'd only come out of a game or not start due to injury. I would not mess with his head, having him worry about coming out. If he wasn't able to do it over the course of the season, then you'd have to look at maybe Brady Quinn for next year and cutting your losses. Over the full course of the year, you should know whether he is the guy you want or not. If he is, then he needs all the reps he can get. If not, you need all those reps to see whether you've made a blunder and wasted your #1 overall and a whole lotta money along with it.

they would be smart and start dilfer then as soon as he starts playing like he did towards the end of the 05 season put alex in boosting his confidence, cause i still dont think he is NFL ready

Paranoidmoonduck 08-02-2006 06:10 PM

If Alex Smith goes his first 6 games with 10 ints and zero touchdowns, the problem isn't just gonna be him sucking. Even terrible quarterbacks playing on mediocre teams put up markedly better numbers than that.

You better believe they would start Dilfer. When you are 0-6 with 0 TD and 10 INT you're going to get benched. In the NFL it's all about winning now.

Yep, even though they need to develop Alex its not at the detriment of the team. Dilfer was brought in to guide Alex but if he needs to go he'll be ready.

Absolutely not. It makes zero sense at all. I could understand the argument of putting in a veteran quarterback if they were competing for a playoff spot down the stretch, but they won't be. At this point, the 49ers aren't playing for this season. They're playing for the future.

I dunno. It's not like anybody has huge expectations of the team anyways. They're gonna be bad. You know it. I know it. Fetuses in the womb already know it.

smith has these tiny little hands that can't grip the nfl ball. unless he grows some new hands he will never be successful. The premier QB's have these big old hands ala Eli and Peyton and Brady.

Staubach12 08-02-2006 09:16 PM

You've got your stats wrong. He threw 1 TD and 11 Ints in 9 games.

stephenson86 08-02-2006 09:17 PM

4 you ask too many questions

In the NFL, you play to win. You don't play for best draft position. If it is apparant that Trent Dilfer gives this team a better chance to win, he'll start.

No i say play Alex Smith, will the 49ers make the playoffs if he is in all season?

NO

will they make the playoffs is Dilfer is in?

No, so start the young Smith and let him get more experience.

I'm not saying they'd be playing for the best draft position. Nolan isn't under tremendous amounts of pressure to win now, so he has no need no need to hinder the development of his franchise quarterback for a few meaningless wins in an already lost season.

I guarantee you, if Smith doesn't show flashes of brilliance, his days will be numbered. That said, I fully expect Smith to show small glimpses of good QB play.

Somebody that actually makes sense.

Yeah Daunte Culpepper and Mike Vick have small hands and so do you think they've have had unsuccesful careers also?

exactly!

i have a question about the small hands, i have a game used NFL ball and an official NCAA ball, the college ball is actually more "fat" than the NFL, the NFL ball seems more skinny and not as large so i always thought if you can grip an NCAA ball the pro ball is actually smaller, i might have a kicking ball so the size if off but does anyone have official measurements of both balls?
