Would you rather be 8-0 with Alex Smith or 3-5 with Geno?

Our offense is terrible with Alex Smith. It would likely be worse with Geno given his propensity to turn the ball over and give the other teams points through pick 6s and returned fumbles for TDs. So seeing as how we barely win with the offense we have now, we'd have likely lost more than a few games if we had Geno as our QB.

But would you rather take those growing pains with Geno, or be 8-0 with Alex and be in the driver seat toward a first round bye in the playoffs?

Really stupid thing to say after what he did for SF in 2011. At the doorstep of a SB in a season sporting a bottom 5 RG and C, and a serious lack of passing weapons in the playoffs, outside of VD.

It's okay to think that Smith isn't special or even very good... but your thinking here is really plain potato.

You've watched him play more than most here.

That playoff game he won was the exception to the rule. The guy has that kind of game once every few years.

I get wanting more out of the quarterback position. But anyone that would rather be 3-5 than 8-0 needs to reevaluate their fandom.

You are still just not getting it... or at least, choosing not to get it.

Alex is a careful guy... until he can not afford to be. That is why Alex stepped up the way he did vs the Saints in that playoff game.. it was do or die.. and he did. Against that NYG team, the Giants were doing nothing in half 2.. so we played the odds of conservatism that led us to 13 wins that season. We didn't and couldn't foresee that Kyle W. would fumble the game away as he did. That game was the 49ers... but crazy circumstances bit us in the ass.

Bottom line is... Alex led the yr 1 49ers to the doorstep of the SB... and he did it with some very porous OL play and a lack of real talent at WR.

So for you to say "you just know he can never do it over years with KC?

Man, that's ****ing stupid.

Similar to the game Matt Cassel had against the Seahawks in 2010?

I won't count on it because it is at best 50/50. You would give up our first 8-0 season in 10 years (and maybe it will be 10 or more years before we see another one) for what is essentially a flip of a coin. Nuts.

I get wanting to make a point but suggesting that the only logical conclusion would be Geno goes 3-5 in KC is smoking salts.

Who knows what our record would be. Being he's a rookie I seriously doubt we'd be 8-0. I'll agree with that.

Is 4-4 or 5-3 really out of the question with this defense?...

it is a created hypothetical that's asking for your opinion IF being the situation.. and one that isn't wild beyond the imaginations..

The biggest difference IMO is turnovers. Look at the difference in Cassel to Smith. The biggest difference is the turnovers. If Geno was back there turning the ball over like he is, like Cassel did the Defense probably wouldn't be nearly as good.

You do know the Jets defense is ranked above us right, Jets offense line is much much better than the Chiefs hell their recievers are betterthan ours.

I don't think we would be 3-5 w/ GS. Just as I don't think the Jets would be 8-0 w/ AS.

I don't view AS as a guy that's good enough to get us to a SB...hopefully I'm wrong.

I think this offense is a lot more rookie-friendly. When you see how many short crossing patterns and quick slants and passes to the flat we have it cuts down on those turnovers. But then it looks like Geno has more time to throw than Alex does so he'd have that against him here as well.

We'd also have a better idea of what Bowe's got this year. Geno isn't afraid to throw beyond 10 yards.

It's fun to speculate. We'll have to wait and see how much of a jump Geno's game makes next year before he's got a chance to win this argument though...
