He's not doing shit for our defense that Matt Cassel couldn't do in 2010.
That's all Matt did in 2010. He didn't turn it over. If that's all Alex is going to do, that's not enough. You want to help the defense? Own third down and extend drives.
That is something Alex Smith has shown time and time again that he can't do.
In 2012 San Francisco was 14th in the league in the number of 1st down attempts. They were 30th in the league in the number of 3rd down attempts. Alex Smith owned third down by not needing them. He tended to get the first down on either the first or second down. I know as Chiefs fans that is a foreign concept, but some QBs can actually do that....
