Re: Alex Smith
Anyone that gives Gore credit for Smith's success is an idiot. Before the Eagles game the Niners had one of the worst offensive lines in football. They were almost dead last in rushing and near the bottom in sacks allowed. Despite all of this, Smith put up respectable numbers and most importantly won games.
Now that the offensive line has picked up its game (mostly due to the benching of Chilo Rachal) and the running game picking up, he's even putting up better numbers. And this is all done without Braylon Edwards one of their top receivers.
Smith has played really well this season. If he continues his success this season, I think the "bust" label will be written off. But there will be some that will label him a bust because he will always be compared to Aaron Rodgers...
