Default Alex Smith to take pay cut

49ers | A. Smith to take pay cut
Tue, 10 Mar 2009 10:42:40 -0700

Matt Maiocco, of The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports the San Francisco 49ers announced that they have agreed with QB Alex D. Smith on a pay reduction as part of a new two-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. "We have reached an agreement with Alex and his agent to keep him as a member of the San Francisco 49ers," general manager Scot McCloughan said. "Alex expressed a deep interest to remain with the team and that feeling was mutual."

Pay cut to make the roster. Better than no pay, not to mention you know he isn't starving.

Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.

Dumb move by the 49ers. What, are they hoping for a controversy the first time Hill (or whoever else they select as their "QB of the future") has a rough stretch? They'd be better off just kicking Smith's ass to the curb and moving on.

Even if he can still play -- and he's had several years to show that but has still left serious doubts -- sometimes it's in everyone's best interests if they make a clean break instead of dragging the whole thing out over the course of a number of years.
