Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

It's hard to remember all starting NFL QBs off the top of my head...but no way is Alex Smith 10th. Come on now.

Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

Feel free to disagree, I understand. But if you think Smith sucks, you haven't been paying attention. Now that he FINALLY has a good coaching staff and some continuity (not learning a new offense every single offseason) he has done pretty well.

In his past 24 games, Smith has completed 395 of 665 passes for 4,780 yards, with 30 touchdowns and six interceptions. Here's how he compares to the NFL's top quarterbacks over their past 665 attempts:

Player Rating
1. Aaron Rodgers, Packers 114.88
2. Drew Brees, Saints 106.21
3. Tom Brady, Patriots 102.85
4. Tony Romo, Cowboys 101.45
5. Matthew Stafford, Lions 96.32
6. Eli Manning, Giants 94.23
7. Alex Smith, 49ers 92.81
8. Peyton Manning, Broncos 92.74
9. Matt Schaub, Texans 91.93
10. Matt Ryan, Falcons 90.79
11. Philip Rivers, Chargers 88.98
12. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers 88.25
13. Michael Vick, Eagles 86.35
14. Jay Cutler, Bears 83.69
15. Joe Flacco, Ravens 83.12

One more for the good guys!

Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

That stat seems misleading? Why 24 games? Why not 16 or 32? A season and a half? Also he is entering his second year with Harbough, so technically he hasn't had two seasons with the same offense yet. So continuity has no effect yet.

He was briefly injured/benched in the middle of 2010 under Singletary (aka the worst head coach in NFL history).

As far as your point about continuity, that's exactly what I'm saying. He has played well the past couple years and improved quite a bit despite all the BS he's had to deal with. He is finally in a good situation to succeed. Expect big things from Smith and the 49ers this year.

Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

I laughed at Alex Smith at number 10. I laughed even harder when you used QB rating as a stat to justify it.

Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

What's wrong with QB rating? You wanna use ESPN's janky stat?

Smith ain't top 10 because he's had just one good season.

I'm an Alex Smith fan but come on. The guy isn't even top 15.

Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious

Fan was a wrong choice of words.

Better choice of words is, I don't hate him and I don't think he's a bad player.
