I did my best to give cassel a fair chance as well as the rest of the previous administration.
Alex Smith IS
more physically gifted than Matt Cassel but even under Harbaugh it didn't really translate to significant improvement. You could easily lay the improved production onto the 49ers total talent level and better coaching than the Chiefs had.
If Alex Smith doesn't have a clean pocket, he tends to shit the bed.
If Alex Smith has too many bad things happen, he gets nervous and shits the bed.
If you ask Alex Smith to carry too much of a load, he tends to shit the bed.
all of these things are very similar to Matt Cassel and a game-manager level Quarterback.
Hey, i could be wrong ... Alex Smith might just need a chance.
