Alex Smith could go to a shithole like Arizona or Cleveland and be guaranteed to start, or he could come to a team like the Chiefs that have a good chance of winning and take a chance. That is his choice, but if it was me I'd want to win. His career probably won't last long anyway if he goes to one of the shithole teams.
not one GOOD QB in the league is "Looking over their shoulder" currently
you think Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Eli Manning, Big Ben, etc have ANY COMPETITION or fear of being replaced anytime "soon"
lollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll get out of here with that logic.
If you have a good QB you ride him until his legs fall off, in your examples Joe Montana and Brett Farve had like 2 or 3 good years left at best and were well into the mid to late thirties and there was young QBs waiting to be good for those teams for the next decade+
