The San Francisco 49er quarterback should be no stranger to sports fans; but as I watched last night's game, I couldn't think of what college team he played for, so I checked the internet.
He's a Urban Meyer product, and in 2005, Alex lead his undefeated Utah team to a 35-7 Fiesta Bowl victory over the University of Pittsburgh. After that Urban became the head coach at the University of Florida, and Alex Smith was the 1st overall pick in the NFL Draft (ahead of a guy named Aaron Rogers).
His pro career was plagued with injuries and many different coaching philosophies..... yet Alex survived, and has finally blossomed in the NFL. Is he as good as Big Ben? I don't think so; but his offensive coordinator uses all of the tools he has at his disposal, and San Francisco has a plethora of that.
So stop the complaining,and Tuesday morning quarterbacking.... with a healthy Ben, we're a different team. Don't blame the defense.... they hung in there until late in the game.
