I kind of thought J.T. was going to win it there, I hope he succeeds too.

You know what I wanna see? The Bears trade for Alex Smith lol

Impossible he's still got way too much potential to be a dolphin right now.

isn't this just his third year?

How long did it take Bradshaw to get it down? What about some others?

I wouldn't call him a bust yet... But yeah, he seems to be struggling.

who the hell is J.T O'Sullivan ?

is alex smith really that bad? he's basically had one bad season, an average season and one injury filled season

he could still turn it around, with some other team probably, his coaches obviously don't want him

similar situation with grossman in chicago

Default Re: Alex Smith = 1st Round Bust

I bet he could florish in a team that is actually slightly stable.

The San Fransisco 49ers are one of the most unstable franchises in professional football.

Alex Smith has had three offensive coordinators, one for each year. When Norv Turner was his OC he had an okay year. The Turner left to HC in San Diego.

Now he's on his fourth OC, Mike Martz, who's offense is rather complex and takes a while to learn.

If Alex Smith ended up in Kansas City, Chicago, or Minnesota...I wouldn't be surprised to see him have a decent career.

Or he could be so mentally and/or physically damaged that he's the next David Carr.

This is top of my head without actually looking it up, but wasn't Aaron Rodgers in the same draft class as Smith? He would have been a hell of a better pick.

Yes, Rodgers was 20th in that draft.

Problem with that draft is there weren't any big time talents who should clearly have been top ten picks. Good news for Smith is he's still only 23 years old. Another team can pick him up and try to make it work. The Bears would be a good choice because they have a defense and a running game to help him.
