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.
