    Revis for our 1st?

    Would you do that right now? tonight? Jets say they might explore a trade. at 19, heck even at #1, there are no guarantees. That guy is a guarantee. a lock down corner in his prime. would mask basically our biggest problem. and with Prince make our pass rush more dangerous with "coverage sacks."

    On the flip side, he's entering his 7th year and has had a knee surgery. so it's risky. and you won't get the same mileage as you would out of a 2013 pick. tough call, or easy decision for the Giants? (also, giants wouldn't offer the 1st right out the gate anyway, but if it came to that, would you do it?)

    I would see your point if he didn't go down with that knee, but he did. And that changes everything.

    You watch...if they trade him it will be for no more than a 2nd round pick.
    Smith is a little bit better, but not much IMO.

    Sanchez proved he could make big plays when he had a solid supporting cast around him. Let's not forget some of those big plays he made late in games over the 2010 season that were the difference between L's and W's. Key words being: Supporting cast. Look back at the same period when Sanchez was making those plays, Alex Smith had no one protecting him and he looked just as bad as Sanchez did this season.

    I do agree that Smith is better, but I think if you had him under center for the Jets this year instead of Sanchez -- he would have looked almost as bad.

    Game managers are a product of their environment.

    Oh without a doubt being selected #1 brings a lot of pressure, and I can see where you are coming from with Harbaugh putting his players in good situations because the guy may be a jerk off, but he is a hell of a coach. Either way Smith is out the door this off season and I believe that the Jets should kick the tires on Smith since they picked up Marty.
    I am sure that signing Alex Smith will be high on their list of priorities but I doubt that he goes there. I see Alex Smith going to either Arizona or Kansas City. NY Jets will probably sign Mike Vick.

    You bring up some really good points but the fact so many QBs have flourished under Harbaugh (Luck, Smith, and now Kaepernick) would lead one to believe that the guy is just really good in putting his QB in the best situations for his skillset. Luck was given more freedom with reads and making risky throws at Stanford which really says it all for me. Maybe he was messed up with all of these coordinators but a #1 overall draft pick is supposed to rise above such issues. He would be treated in a better light if he was a later round selection.

    At least that's the way it seemed to me.
    MS criticizing a poster that downplays a QB’s accomplishments? Never. lol........

    Alex Smith is an accurate passer. He won't win you a game very often,but he will almost never lose a game for you. West Coast offense fits him perfectly. When he's in that offense, he is above average,when you want him to throw the ball downfield, he struggles. You've also got to account for the fact that this kid has been through multiple coordinators and was never really given a chance to settle down and get comfortable (minus the past year and a half, and we saw what he did with that). With that being said, people are calling him below average because of his early years when the coaching staffs were in constant flux and these preconceived notions make it hard for many to realize how impressive he has been under Harbaugh.

    What is the argument here?


    And why do you keep telling me he's a good QB? Please show me where I said he wasn't.

    He's actually a pretty good QB.

    Short, high percentage passes - Harbaugh catering to Smith's strengths. He took a back seat and was allowed to pick his spots. He must've averaged around, what 20 passes and 200 yards per game? Adequate, but not really ideal for most teams' configurations. Admittedly, he did hit paydirt with more regularity this season. Good for him.


    Wow, how'd this turn into an Alex Smith discussion?
