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.

I don't think a 4,000 to 4,500 yard season is out of the question for Alex next year given how much Andy likes to throw the ball.
Yep. Andy Reid is not bringing in Alex Smith to be a game manager. Simple point, but for some reason, controversial.

or whats more likely for anyone that has watched a Pats game, that the majority of their passes to wes welker, are quick slants or wr screens. or quick outs to hernandez. Point being that putting the ball in your play makers hands, like alex smith did with michael crabtree last year, is actually a GOOD thing. Not a negative......

Nope. Im not the dolt here. I said 2011 is irrelevant. i didnt say it was irrelevant because 2012 was better, which it was, i said 2011 is irrelevant, because andy reid has liked alex smith since he was drafted, and it has been stated on this forum that he has been trying to trade for him for YEARS. 2011, is most irrelevant though, because of the LOCKOUT, and the crap show at receiver the 49ers had. Any time your BEST play maker says i didnt understand the play book, (vernon davis) until week 10!!!! that is a reason to deem it irrelevant. But, then again, to myopic people who dont understand team chemistry, and the chemistry between a receiver, and his qb, are going to think this is just an excuse.

That may be true, but if thats the case, why was tom brady pissed that wes welker left? He can do that with anyone, Right?????

Let me guess...only 2012 is relevant...because he would have thrown 26 TDs if you project out those 8 games! OMG!

The reason I have slightly higher expectations for AS than what Trent Green produced is because AS has the benefit of a team that's on the rise whereas Trent Green was on an aging team that was trying to keep the window open as long as possible. I think the AFC West will be an easier division over the next few years than it was in the early 2000s too.
That's about where I'm at. My hope is that we also groom someone underneath him so that if he doesn't get there, we've got another option (unlike the hodgepodge of awful QB's we had after Trent went down).

No, the stats themselves are mostly irrelevant, because that is who andy reid wanted. I dont buy into the stats at all with alex smith, because he is only going to do what his coaches tell him to do. There is no maverick in him, no ability to create on his own. Hes going to do whatever andy tells him to do. The same that he did with Nolan, singletary, and Jim. Hes the perfect soldier that way.

The stats with alex smith, are the biggest misleader out there. I dont get why that is such a hard concept for people to grasp.

In 2002 and 2003 it was great on offense, but complete crap on defense. And was crap thereafter until this day, basically.

They haven't won a playoff game since the 1993 season. Think about that.

Has there ever been any sizable online environment where the Chiefs were good?

That has to color everything in some way or another. Imagine four years from now, in this fantasy world where Alex Smith is Joe Montana reborn, we're winning playoff games and making superbowls.

Do you *really* think that wouldn't have an impact on the fanbase? On this forum? That people wouldn't enjoy that more than bitching and moaning? Or even being "right" in this anonymous online world?

I think that's probably why there's so much bitching and moaning. Because people want to win so badly.
I hope you are right. I think the poll in the negativity thread proves that the vast majority of people are at least hopeful, and the negative are in a small minority. But it is hard to tell that from reading the threads here, as the negative people dominate every discussion with doom and gloom making it seem like they are the majority. I think if I really looked I would see that it is mainly the same 10-15 people, but it sure seems like more sometimes.

They are trying to trade down AND trade Albert for picks. They apparently want as many picks as possible in the 1st and 2nd. It seems likely that they have a QB they like that they think will be available with one of those picks. I hope so anyway.

Reid has already announced that Smith is the starter and Daniel is #2. They aren't going to draft a QB early to sit him on the inactive list.

You don't know that. There is no Luck or RGIII this year. They may think that all of the QBs in this draft need a year or two before they can play in the NFL. And if they have the luxury of doing that, why not? It is what Reid intended to do with Foles last year before Vick was injured.

Was Foles #3 on the depth chart?

The point isn't controversial at all. Alex Smith's capacity to be more than a game manager is what's in contention.
