Alex Smith...might not suck

Wait, was that Alex Smith actually doing something productive in the 49ers’ 24-21 loss to the Texans?

Alex, welcome back to the league! Maybe there is some real hope you won’t be the biggest quarterback bust since Ryan Leaf. Count me in as someone excited to see the NFL’s newest QB-WR connection of Smith to Michael Crabtree.

It was only one solid game by Smith, but it was enough to make me wonder if he really has been given enough of a shot by the 49ers considering all that they had invested in him.

Since becoming the head coach in San Francisco, Samurai Mike Singletary has been obsessed to prove that he is in charge and that contracts and hype will have no bearing on playing time. As a result, he barely gave Smith a chance to win the QB job in training camp. Instead, he banished him to run hills for a few fumbles. What a waste.

For all that Singletary talks about “the team, the team, the team” he has a strange way of bringing an inordinate amount of attention upon himself. Whether he’s taking his pants off in the locker room, or giving press conferences from the Jim Mora School of being out of control, it’s always about him.
