Smith move smart for 49ers

Posted on: October 26, 2009 3:58 pm
Smart move by Mike Singeltary to turn the ball over to Alex Smith. Look, I know the 49ers won some games with Shaun Hill, and winning is the only number that matters. But Hill has hit the wall, and the 49ers need a jolt. Smith may give  it to them. All I know is that they just added the franchise wide receiver in Michael Crabtree. At one time, Smith was the franchise quarterback ... and maybe he can be that guy again, I don't know. But I'd like to find out. So the 49ers will. Good move.

Smith move smart for 49ers


In total agreement with you on this one. Coming out of camp it was apparently clear that Hill was going to be the guy, but the same was said for a few starting QB's this year (Brady Quinn and Kerry Collins). The main point to be taken here is, something has got to give...

The 49ers are a team that has playoff hopes, and they are legitimate in nature. Having said that, Singeltary would not be doing his job effectively if he didn't make this move. The offense has just been stagnant, and you're right when you say it needs some spark. I'm hoping for the best for Alex Smith because he was on the verge of fading into obscurity. He could be what they need. We'll see if it works out within the next few weeks, but you hit the nail on the head, good move by Singeltary.

Smith move smart for 49ers

The good news is Alex Smith will start, also good that he has Michael Crabtree.  Bad news: The Indianapolis Colts who are playing at home for the first time in almost a month.  Oh by the way Mr. Crabtree.....I am sure Bob Sanders will give you that warm and friendly WELCOME TO THE NFL!!.  You may be late arriving, but it is coming.

Smith move smart for 49ers

I don't know for sure yet, but I agree with Clark. Smith has the tools to pair with Crabtree, Davis and Gore that could make this young
49'rs offense rather dynamic for the immediate future, so if they are smart Singletary and the boys will go with Alex from here on out.

Smith move smart for 49ers

Does anyone think Alex Smith will start next week. I need to make a move in fansty. Shaun Hill is my bye week replacement this week  and will take a flyer on Smith for one day if he is starting for sure.
