you dont know alex smith. It was not selfish on his part at all. Thats the way he has always been. Thats who he is. It hurts him a lot, because he doesnt have any diva in him. Brett Favre blowing off aaron rodgers and making a public stink about coaches wanting him to mentor him, and refusing to do it, probably kept him around in green bay at least one year longer than ted thompson really wanted to.
Alex Smith had he become a true distraction this year, could of really ruined things.
