    If Joe tanks down the stretch and still wants money, does John ask his bro about Smith?



    At the start of the year I figured Joe for a Top 10 QB and I've always been in his corner. Then as the games progressed it was more like a Top 16 QB. It then got worse and these past five games he's been garbage: 57% completion pct. and 6 (costly) turnovers.

    I don't think Alex Smith is going to lead us to the promised land but he's got a cap friendly number as well as a 104 passer rating with a 70% completion pct. This could be a nice band-aid and give us a year or two to put some pieces together (and wait for a good QB draft) instead of being stretched by a 12-15 million hit.

    Possible. But unlikely.

    He's one year into a 3 year/24 million/9 million guaranteed

    Cap numbers are:

    9.25 million in 2012, 9.75 million in 2013, and 8.75 million in 2014

    I'm no capologist, post one states it's a friendly cap number so I'm just adding to the thread

    You need a good, creative OC to maximise his abilities, and you'd still need a better OL.

    I liked the suggestion of Matt Flynn.

    Though, despite the fact this was a terrible bed-shitting, I won't give up on Flacco.

    Somewhere Cam Cameron is either smiling or laughing out loud. Maybe Cam knew all along that Flacco is not an elite or even decent QB and tried to hide his weaknesses. I did not see anything today that would suggest otherwise.

    Their will be plenty of questions, right now way to early to speculate.

    Alex Smith is trash. I'm tired of even hearing the SUGGESTION that he's anything more than the guy who handed off to Frank Gore and threw the ball in the general direction of Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree.

    No way the Ravens would upgrade by getting Alex Smith. If they're going to go the trade route, a better option might be Matt Flynn... as long as he could be paired up with a new OC like Karl Dorrell or Ben McAdoo who run a WCO.

    If this team is rebuilding they don't need an older player like Alex Smith. That's what teams like the Raiders do and it never works out.

    Palmer is working out quite well for them.

    Um...are you serious?

    Palmer is a turn-over machine.

    He has singlehandedly blown about 4 games this year in OAK.

    Alex Smith is worse than Flacco by a mile IMO. Dude was a #1 draft pick, and got his first decent coach a year ago to drag his ass just slightly out of the gutter. Talk about game manager.

    Except for Matt Flynn...not sure about that guy.


    Alex Smith though? No thanks.
