Let's give Alex Smith a round of applause.


First of all, screw the 49'ers. Hate that team.

That being said though, I truly do feel like Alex Smith was dealt the shortest end of the stick imaginable. Dude's had NO consistency in his coaching staff, and had a ton of pressure put on him to win games from the get go. He's never seemed like a bad guy, and he always took a lot of flak from the media and fans of both the 49'ers and other franchises. After suffering through 2 years of the 'your QB can't hang at the NFL level' talk (Smith supporters have suffered for 7), I know that personally I was so happy when Stafford played all 16 games this season and shut everyone the hell up. So in all earnestness, let's give Alex a hand for showing up big in the playoffs, and for also finally having a coaching staff that recognizes who he is and what he can/can't do, and using that to their full potential. I'm happy for the guy.... just not his team.
