Given the last couple of years, I doubt very seriously that Alex Smith will be Matt Cassel.
Either way, I don't think he's Reid's only plan.
Alex Smith throwing Green numbers means the defense is better than the 85 Bears and the 2000 Ravens. They'd have to play otherworldly good.
I won't belabor the comparison between Cassel and Alex. That's already been done more eloquently by others here.
And Alex Smith is Reid's only plan. Unless you believe Daniel / Stanzi / Tanney are QBoTF material. A QB picked later than 2nd round is wasted in any year, and this year every pick has to hit to contribute. There are too mAny holes to take a developmental project guy.
