Q: Could Troy Smith be the answer at quarterback? A: Agues it is possible. However as far as the other Smith, in other words Alex Smith, I think he has repeatedly proven, and also every single time, that the very best he is ever likely to be, AND EVEN ON HIS VERY BEST DAYS, is extremely mediocre.

In other words, a baseball player who performed the way Alex Smith does would be considered, and even at best, only an extremely mediocre utility infielder.

For instance even on his very best days, and even being very kind and easy in the analysis, Alex Smith only deserves somewhere between a "C" and "C-." More specifically, if the other team has a losing record and also has an off day even for a crummy team, Alex Smith if he has one of his better days occasionally might manage to pull out a close one. And on his average days and his slightly below average days, at best, and being extremely generous, he deserves only a "D" or "D-." And on his off days he does not even deserve a F.

And if we could arrange the schedule so that for every single game of a sixteen game season the 49ers played teams that were considered only slightly above average, it is quite likely Alex Smith would not manage to win even one of those games.

So the 49ers could try absolutely anybody else at quarterback, since while the new guy might be better than Alex Smith it is hard to imagine he could be significantly worse.
