It's great to see Smith finally doing well. He has been very fortunate to stay
around for 7 years until he finally got a good team assembled around him where
the QB is not relied on so heavily. It is a perfect situation for him and he is
taking advantage of it.
Way to go Alex!Our DB's are going to have to be sharp against WSU.
That QB of theirs has a great arm and great accuracy. Hopefully our D-line will
keep pressure on him and rattle him early so he loses some poise and then the
DB's will have to play tight coverage and look to knock the ball away. They
can't let the receivers catch too many passes.
Alex Smith is still the best QB to play for the Utes. Brian Johnson was a part
of the biggest win in Ute history (Sugar Bowl), but Alex was the better player.
Brian is where he should be. He is a bright young asset at the U. as QB
coach.Smith has been with a new offensive coordinator in each of his
7 years in the league. He has been through three head coaches as well. Coming
from a spread offense in college, it has been almost impossible for Smith to
adjust and excel in San Francisco. Things are new again this year, and there was
the late start due to a lockout. Still, you can see how Smith does in a more
stable environment.Smith will only get better under Harbaugh. Once
Alex gets more time under his belt, the Niners will let him make more plays and
be aggressive. Smith is a good game manager, but he can wing it as well. Ya'll
will see in due time.
Good for Alex. He could end up like Plunkett: Career on trash heap, confidence
shattered, new coach, new team in the Bay Area, Super Bowl winner -- only all
that has happened to Alex without changing franchises or cities.
I'm glad Alex is finally having the success he has worked so hard for. What a
great story of patience and perseverance.
Way to go Alex. You are class personified. You deserve the success!!!Go Utes!!
