Actually, I'm not a Smith Homer, I like Rodgers just as well, its just that I have felt all along S.F. would go with Rodgers, he fits their West Coast offense to a tee, he is ready to play now and he has a terrific arm with great accuracy.finsnchips said:thats good news for us in terms of trading down.
also good for you, with the utmost respect, as a Smith homer j/k :tongue:
Agreed...it's the smart move....and that opens the door for the real trading to begin...for Edwards and M. Williams....both players that Tampa and the Vikes really want.BlueFin said:Actually, I'm not a Smith Homer, I like Rodgers just as well, its just that I have felt all along S.F. would go with Rodgers, he fits their West Coast offense to a tee, he is ready to play now and he has a terrific arm with great accuracy.
Also heard a radio report today that San Fran expects to have a deal signed by Rodgers by tommorow.
apologies. At this time I really can't see us getting either of them.BlueFin said:Actually, I'm not a Smith Homer, I like Rodgers just as well, its just that I have felt all along S.F. would go with Rodgers, he fits their West Coast offense to a tee, he is ready to play now and he has a terrific arm with great accuracy.
I have no real concerns about Alex Smith's ability to adapt to whatever style of offense he's asked to learn.Sal Lisitano said:BlueFin,
I have a question for you...I know that A. Smith took almost all of his snaps from the shotgun position...do you think he will be able to become a successful drop back qb? I'm a little worried that he will have some difficulty being a drop back passer...in the 3 and 5 step drops...this might hurt him. I don't know but what do you think?
Like I've been saying...I think Saban will take A. Smith if we stay at the #2 spot and if the 49ers take Rodgers or someone else besides A. Smith with their pick. The 49ers are the key to our draft...it will give us some options if they take Rodgers. I don't think the Browns will take A. Smith. The Bears won't take a QB either...so if the 49ers don't take Rodgers...A. Smith will still be on the board when Tampa picks at #5. I have so many thoughts running through my mind...My gut feeling is...if we stay at the #2 spot...and A. Smith is still there...Saban will take him...unless Saban gets an offer he can't refuse from the Bucs or Vikes. Maybe Saban will take A. Smith...and than trade him...because a lot of GM's feel he's bluffing and really wants a RB...so they don't think any team will trade with us...that's when he just may take Smith.
I'm confused...but things will get all cleared up...sooner rather than later.
I hope we can trade out of the #2 spot and get more picks...but than again I say to myself...maybe we should take Smith...he maybe a franchise QB someday.
If we trade out...into the #5 or #7 spot...I can see us taking "Cadillac" if Brown and Edwards are gone. I don't think Benson is Saban's type of player...he may actually be the best rb but his past problems off the field may hurt him...again I don't know.
What's funny is that no one is talking about Williams...maybe just maybe Saban wants M. Williams...this could be his guy all along. We'll will just have to wait and see. Anyway, what is your feeling on this?
