    The 49ers didn't mistreat A. Smith, they simply started a quarterback who they felt had a better chance of getting them to the Super Bowl. It's pretty hard to argue with the results so far.

    Signing Collie however is a mistake. They are already missing Crabtree, and Collie is about 1 more concussion away from a doctor telling him to either hang it up, or plan on being a vegetable the rest of his life. I admire him for his determination to return, but I just think it's too risky for the Niners.....and perhaps for Collie too.

    If he goes to the 49ers I'd have to root for them despite the fact I dislike the way they treated Alex Smith... Collie is smart, would adjust well when K scrambled, and he is tough to cover in the red zone. They'd be smart to pick him up.
