Look, I'd love for the guy to come in and be a top 10 QB in the league, but I'd also love to buy the winning powerball ticket for once as well. However stats and common sense tell me that neither one of those things are going to happen. I hope to hell I'm wrong on both accounts, but they are long shots.
I dont believe that Alex Smith was brought here to be your qbotf. He is your qb for the next year, maybe two. He is here to mentor whoever reid decides is your qbotf, and even if that turns out to be geno, andy realizes that geno needs time on the bench to learn, and that putting him in too fast, is going to ruin him.
Maybe thats why I dont dislike the alex smith move. I can promise you, as much as I am a fan of him, if he was brought here to be your franchise qb for the next 5 years, i would be pissed too.
