Rant My Life: What’s Wrong With San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith?
At 5-2, the San Francisco 49ers have one of the most well-balanced teams in the NFL and appear to have what it takes to make a run at the Super Bowl this season. However, there’s plenty of reasons to be frustrated with the inconsistency surrounding quarterback Alex Smith–who is coming off a decent performance against the Seattle Seahawks in which he completed 14 of 23 passes for 140 yards and just one touchdown to go along with one interception.
While the argument can be made that he was playing against one of the top defenses in the league with the Seahawks, consistency has been an issue for Smith throughout his career as one week he looks like a top-10 quarterback one week and a player who doesn’t deserve to start the next. After throwing for 303 yards and three touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5, Smith has only thrown for 340 yards and one touchdown to go along with four interceptions the last two weeks in games against the New York Giants and Seahawks.
Behind players like Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, and Randy Moss, San Francisco has enough talent on offense for Smith to put up big numbers on a weekly basis. The defense has proven to be one of the best in the league over the last two years and if the 49ers have any shot of reaching the Super Bowl this year–Smith needs to figure out a way to perform at the high level he’s capable of on a weekly basis.
