If you go back and read my post history, you will see that I've always given Alex his credit where due and listed all his strengths such as football IQ, ball security, mastery of the short passing game, mastery of the playbook, and solid pre-snap reads. Any reading of my posting history will tell you that I am balanced on Alex, and not the troll these 2 guys paint me as.
I don't expect you to go back and read all my posts, but do a user search on my user name and keyword search on some of the positives I've listed above, and you will find plenty of posts from me listing these as Alex's strengths.
As a noob, I was almost laughed off the forum for making the argument that Alex Smith is "mobile". KC fans who hadn't watched him in SF thought he was some kind of statue. They aren't arguing now that they've seen Alex extend drives with his legs and scrambles. He just has to be more careful. I saw him run and dive forward last week and do the exact same thing that caused his concussion mid-2012. But the man is athletic and mobile. In fact, in that thread I was arguing for Alex's mobility I posted this vid.
