He obviously did a good job mentoring Kapernick and I think he would do a good job helping Geno come along.
Do you even know who our coach is? Coach Andy Reid looks for QBs that can pass the ball often and not rely on the run game. Alex Smith is the farthest down the list of a guy to bring in here to teach or "mentor" a passing QB to pass. I'd also argue that Alex Smith didn't do much of any "mentoring" Kaepernick to do what he does on the field. Maybe off the field, but nothing on the field.
I don't want Alex Smith on this team. He would dumb it up for a QBotf we take from the draft with his Cassel esq play.
lololololol Alex Smith is the complete opposite of what Andy Reid looks for in QB I am sure of that.
