Essentially Speaking

For purposes of clarity and brevity, this site will henceforth refer to Troy Smith as “Troy” and Alex Smith as “Alex.” A bit chummy for my tastes, but it will have to do. If the next HC is named Davis Smith, I’m switching to the digit system for identifying members of the team.

Yesterday, Alex punked Mike Singletary by essentially calling him a linebacker head who had no clue what it took to run an offense. This was in response to Singletary essentially saying Alex had no leadership skills. The blog world has no use for essentialies, however. Out here, the middle finger does the talking. And both these fellows are getting standing room only F-spressions.

It’s possible we will not be hearing much from Alex in the future, though. If Troy beats the Rams and Bucs, he’ll finish out the season as the starting QB and Alex will no longer be hassled by reporters surrounding his locker. If Troy bombs, the season is over and all hell breaks loose, but the fury will not be focused on either Smith.

So, the fate of the 49ers now resides as much in the feet of the quarterback as it does in his arm. If it wasn’t for Troy Smith’s tricky feet, it’s doubtful he would have launched any of his game altering passes in London, let alone completed them. IOW, David Carr would have taken about eight sacks in that Denver game. Alex would have thrown four of them away and tossed the other four to Frank Gore.

It looks like the team will be a big play offense now, not a clock eating grinder. Troy’s feet will allow the deep WR routes to develop and he’s got the arm to throw the long ball. He does not have the precision to complete a string of third and five passes, however. We’re all sick of that offense, anyway. Bombs away, baby. WTF.

And how about them Cowboys! Hahaha. Yesterday they fired Wade Phillips, but the surreal screw up involved their web site. It disappeared. Why? Because somebody forgot to renew the domain name registration! How goof ball is that? We know how 49er fans would view this sort of incompetence. The Cowboy blogosphere must be approaching melt down status.

49er fans are getting close to that status also. Simmering quietly this week, but one more loss and the melt down cometh.

    This 49er team looks more like the Philadelphia eagles under Buddy Ryan now that Troy is the QB. The major difference is that Philly team had a great defense.
    Alex throwing Sing under the bus was classic. It needed to happen. I feel he took one for the team. He got his ticket out of town verified by doing it, but what smart QB would stay here anyway. Sing is not a QBs best friend.
    How ’bout those Cowboys!

    Singletary on KNBR this morning replying to our QB situation. ” what we do not have here is a quarterback controversy. ”
    One word too many, coach. One word too many.

    Thing is, Sing is right: Alex is not the guy at quarterback. And the other thing is, Alex is right: Sing is a linebacker-head with no offensive clue.

    Classic case of two non-contradictory things being true.

    As far as I’m concerned, they are both dead walking in San Francisco.

    I just hope the next pair isn’t more of ‘meet the new boss, same as the old boss’.

    God, I just can’t even muster the energy to care about this team anymore. Troy Smith? Ales Smith? They owe Troy the start, if only because he won. Alex won’t be ready anyway, so . . . Thank God for the Giants. That’ll keep a smile on my face for quite a while.
    Well, that and the fact we’re flying to the Bahamas tomorrow. I’ll dutifully tape the game, and maybe even watch some of it on Sunday, if I’m near a bar and/or TV. Hmmmm. 4:00 PM start? Should be done doing nothing by then . . .
