OT: 49ers Pick up Alex Smiths Clause Through 2010


The 49ers today picked up a clause in Alex Smith's contract that will keep him a 49er through the 2010 season.

Had the team not chosen to exercise the clause in Smith's original six-year, $49.5 million deal he signed in 2005, his contract would have expired after the 2008 season.

Terrible move! Why not wait until the end of the season? I mean, come on... there's a good chance he won't even BE the starter this coming season. The two most important qualities of a QB in the Mike Martz offense is Accuracy and Getting Rid of the Ball Quickly, both of which Smith is TERRIBLE at. And, coincidentally, Shaun Hill is 50x better at both (from what we've seen)

emoticon

Just no facking point to pulling the trigger now.

Stats over 3 seasons:
19 TD
31 INT
4679 YDS

Terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible

And after whining to the media about Nolan "undermining" him, after being hands down the worst QB the 49ers have EVER HAD... they go ahead and guarantee another 2 years for him?? WHY? So he won't feel threatened or slighted?? HE SHOULD. He's facking PATHETIC, and a career backup came off the bench and did more in 3 games than Smith has done in 3 YEARS.

But yeah, let's guarantee another 2 years. So he won't feel bad.

...like the year he was in the bottom 3rd in the league in every catagory? The year he threw 16 TDs and 16 INT? LOL

Rex Facking Grossman has better numbers than Smith. Check them. I sh*t you not.

Smith makes Trent Dilfer circa 2000 look like Payton Manning.

Here's a simple test.

Does he have a strong arm?
Does he have an accurate arm?
Does he lead his team well?
Does he have good pocket presence?
Does he make good decisions?
Does he avoid fumbling the ball?
Does he make those around him better?
Does he throw a "catchable" ball?
Does he have "that certain something"?
Does he read coverages well?
Does he excel in the 4th quarter?
Does he win games?
Do you trust him with the game on the line?

I think you'll find the answer to every question is no.

The fact is, Alex smith only possesses three admirable qualities: He is relatively athletic, he is relatively booksmart, and he is relatively young. That's it. He has potential. Potential doesn't win games. Potential doesn't warrant extending contracts because he's "only" been in the league for 3 years.

I don't mean to trash the guy, but why would the yorks reup him NOW? Did they think there'd be a bidding war for his services after this season?? Did they not want to hurt his feelings??
