You're assuming that Alex Smith WANTS to do that.
He already lost his job basically without warrant (he was playing lights out at the time actually) and mentored his replacement all the way to the Super Bowl.
His first choice won't be to come here and do the exact same thing. If it ends up that nobody wants him as a starter and thus he has no choice, you're likely looking at one bitter guy.
No matter how you slice it, the ONLY way he fits here is if he's the starter.
