If Alex Smith beats the Giants in the NFC Championship game
 
Can we say that the 49ers made the right decision picking him #1 over Aaron Rodgers?

Rodgers is the better QB by a mile and you would have a case if he beat Rodgers in the championship game but since Rodgers is out, no.

Of course not, but we can say that it's a decision they can now live with.

Lost in the Tebow madness this year is a really great story here in Alex Smith. Now, I can't claim to watch all their games, but it's suggested that a big part of his success this year comes from the coaching staff limiting his mistakes. Still, though, this guy went from potential bust material to being more than a serviceable NFL quarterback. He's changed a lot of perceptions and quieted a lot of doubters.

In all honesty, I think it doesn't matter. Rodgers was really raw coming outta college and he woulda been a bust in SF with all the problems they had. Sitting for 3 years behind Favre and changing his mechanics and learing the offense under MM is a huge reason why he's so good today

beating the giants isn't the goal guy, it's winning it all. if you win the next 2 games, than you can live with it.

but rodgers already has a super bowl... fortunately for him, he did not run into a motivated giants defense last year :lol

He also didnt see his team fumble 3 times and drop atleast 6 passes either. Giants defense played good, but GB shot themselves in both feet yesterday.

or make 2 horrible throws to jennings and finley that could have lead to at least 14 more points

dude did you watch the game? giants defense played good??? they were fcuking amazing. the fact that rodgers had to scramble 6 times for first downs tells you he couldn't find somebody open. sure he is a great QB but he looked human. AARON RODGERS could not find somebody open and scrambled. this wasn't tebow. give the defense more credit yo

so the giants limit the high powered packers to 20 points, oh which by the way 14 of those points were helped by BAD OFFICIATING aka a fumble and a BS helmet to helmet, and they only played good.

and you're clearly from philly, i shouldn't expect clear eyes and no bias :lol

keep rooting against the giants, pray they don't win another one. it's all you have left.

well... you got the phillies. and i'm a mets fan so you got me there :bowdown:

Re: If Alex Smith beats the Giants in the NFC Championship game
 
So 3 fumbles and dropped passes had zero to do with the GB offense. All defense. Ok. :rolleyes:

Re: If Alex Smith beats the Giants in the NFC Championship game
 
so 3 fumbles had nothing to do with the defense being played??? including 1 by him??? :lol

ok dude, agree to disagree.

this is an alex smith thread, i don't dispute how great aaron rodgers is.

i would rather have aaron rodgers than alex smith based on the beast of a playoff run he had last year. but this regular season doesn't mean much because of how much this playoff game was a letdown to him. it was still a top 5 QB year for him.

Just uncharacteristic of "Coon" and Grant. They protect the pigskin well.

SF is where they are because of their defense, not because of Alex Smith
