Because Alex Smith has led us to 20 something wins these past two seasons, because after 7 years of getting ****ed over by incompetent coaches he turns it around, because he was putting up elite numbers.
I love the way the media is taking this. They seem to think Alex is a statue in the pocket where he's one dimensional while Kaep gives the niners offense an extra weapon. Smith is athletic, Smith likes to scramble as well, he ran a 4.7 40, he's no Kaep when coming to athleticism but he doesn't rely on scrambling like Kaep. Once NFL defenses contain that pocket he will struggle. It's only a matter of time as almost every athletic QB has been neutralized(Vick, Young, Tebow, even Cam, etc)
Did the Packers consider benching Rodgers after Flynn threw 6 TD's in his one start last year?
