Expectations and Alex Smith

Just curious. Inspired by the ongoing thread about "Geno fan" expectations, and I'm curious what the thinking is on the other side of the fence. What do people expect out of Alex Smith over the next, let's say, 2-5 years? Specifics, even, yardage and TDs, wins and losses, offensive rankings, etc. This is not a thread with an agenda, I'm genuinely curious what people think, so let's try to keep this from turning into snipe thread #368.

That's what people around here were saying about Mark Sanchez a few years ago. I'm content to take a wait and see approach.

I would argue that both showed more throughout the regular season and post-season than Sanchez but it is just an opinion.

I would concur. The bust probability for Wilson, is near zero, and Kaepernicks is not much higher than that......

Late to the thread, as I have been traveling.

My expectations are for Alex Smith to be able to put his hat on his head without missing and having to fake scratching his noggin.

I also expect him to do the occasional TD celebration without missing his team mates entirely and stupidly falling on his ass in front of the world.

Furthermore, I expect him to be able to overthrow a receiver in the endzone, without hitting a goal post.

Other than that, I expect the same of what we have been seeing for years, since the team is doing the same thing it has done for years.

Including GENO!!
I am fairly certain that I've read this same god damn post every yearf ince I joined the old Star board back in '97.

Dumbass true fan mantra.

Wait til next year.

They are very disimilar.

Matt cassel is porta potty poop at a country music festival from a big hairy fat guy, and alex smith is more like fancy restaurant quality turd squirt from the ass of a beautiful girl.

Two way different grades of poop here......
So, what you're saying is that you'd eat the pretty girl's shit.

I expect that we'll start the year trying to be pass-happy with Alex and it won't work (hence the 9-10 picks). I expect a trajectory much like when we "discovered" Priest Holmes in 2001 and began to run the offense through him as the season progressed (although I do think Trent Green was a better QB than Alex will be). Things will settle down and I expect that Jamaal Charles will have a career best in total yardage, and the Chiefs will be top 10 in rushing, while bottom 10 in passing. I expect Dwayne Bowe to be underutilized, with most of the focus on short passing to backs and slot receivers, although he'll still manage his requisite 800-1000 yards despite that. I think Donnie Avery may have a second consecutive career year, again pushing 800 yards. I expect that we'll all see Reid try to incorporate McCluster into the offense, and it still won't work. End result is 7-8 wins, with a lot of losses under 7 points (the defense is going to be pretty good), so close but not quite there for a wild card. I expect Alex Smith to get his extension after this season (if he doesn't get it before that).

Then in 2014 I expect Alex Smith to have what will be, for him, a career year. 65% passing for 3500 yards, 20 TD, 6 INT. Jamaal Charles (or a backup, he may be run into the ground by season's end) will post another career year. The passing offense's rank will rise into middle-of-the-league, while the rushing offense will remain top-5. The defense will be a bit better, giving us some victories in close games we lost in 2013. The team will win 9-10 games and make the playoffs, where they'll lose a low scoring wild card game to a team they should beat (or may have beaten during the season).

'15-'17 will be more of the same, falling somewhere between 7-9 and 11-5 every year, 3000-3500 yards annually for Alex, probably not much more than 20 TDs in any season. We'll be back to full martyball, basically, with everything centering around defense and running game, although that's obviously counter to Andy Reid's career trends. I think it's possible we win a playoff game or two. I don't think we'll be a super bowl contender, although there have been fluky wins by teams in the past, so anything's possible.
Some of this was pretty close. Not the good parts though.
