Fact is, you guys won one game with Alex Smith starting - and that was against the Raiders where nothing was working for us offensively. Smith didn't have to do much. You're 3-2 with Troy Smith at the helm - going back to the formula earlier in the year doesn't make much sense.
Just because he has made starts in five years it doesn't mean he has had 5 years to show what he can do. He has had exactly 47 starts to show what he can do and, like I said, 7 of those came his rookie year on one of the worst teams in the history of the NFL and 3 more came with a separated shoulder.

That is not even the point, though. The point is that Troy Smith has been godawful for 3 straight weeks, as bad as Alex Smith was his rookie year or when he played with a separated shoulder, and it is pretty clear now that Alex is the better QB. No one expects Alex Smith to suddenly turn it around and play like a Pro Bowler but the fact of the matter is that he is better than Troy Smith.


Troy's record is very misleading as well. He lucked into wins against Denver and St. Louis and played awful against Arizona but was carried by a great running game and playing Arizona. The last two weeks he has played as bad as I have ever seen a QB play, way worse than Alex has played all year. Singletary may be stupid but even he can see that and he knows that if he does not somehow make the playoffs then he is gone. Alex Smith is currently the best QB on the 49ers roster, as sad as that may be, so Singletary is turning to him.

Throw a 21 year old rookie into the fire clearly before he is ready, force him to play in an offense that doesn't suit his style of play at all, give him a new OC and playbook to learn at least once every year, convince him that all a QB needs to do is manage games and to never take chances, question his toughness, throw him under the bus when he has a serious injury, bring in competition when he is recovering from said injury, question his leadership. No QB could have done well in Alex Smith's situation.

SO the 49ers are going to draft a new Qb?

So if Troy Smith won the Heisman once upon a time, and he basically sucks in the NFL, does that mean that Cam Newton is going to inevitably suck in the NFL?

Terrible move. He's had five years, and there's a reason he lost his job in the first place.

David Carr gives them the best chance to win, straight - I know he basically cost them the Carolina game but give him a full week of prep.....Alex Smith is a clown.....
That's the worst idea I have ever heard Carr is worthless at this point in his career.
