you have Alex Smith and haven't been to a Super Bowl in 47 years, why are you talking lmao
Errr, hurting yourself now Bart. No way A-Rod loses a Super Bowl to Alex Smith after all that...
This is...interesting. The 3 guys below Alex Smith are all Super Bowl-winning QBs.
I want Alex Smith to when a Super Bowl so bad! But if he can't I hope Kirk Cousins or Carson Palmer does!
Wrong Chief. But Alex Smith has same chance of winning Super Bowl as Dunford getting us out of Afghanistan.
Jim Harbaugh took Alex Smith to NFC Title Game and took Colin Kaepernick to the Super Bowl. Michigan will be fine.
Do these twits w/the Alex Smith flatheads realize SF went to the Super Bowl with the QB Harbaugh picked?.
Justin Houston thinks Chiefs can win Super Bowl with Alex Smith ||
Justin Houston said he believes could win Super Bowl w/ Alex Smith, but need to add some more pieces around him…
Andy Dalton, Alex Smith, and the like are quarterbacks who will never win you a Super Bowl. Rather be 4-12 then be fans of those teams.
A lot of fans are not going to like it, but I'm going out on a limb and say that if RGIII is out for an extended time, and it appears that may be the case, Kirk Cousins will keep the starting job especially if he continues to play well. It would not be unprecedented. New England's Tom Brady got his job after starter Drew Bledsoe was injured and eventually ended up in Dallas, and former 49er starting QB Alex Smith suffered a concussion and was replaced by Colin Kaepernick who took the 49ers to the Super Bowl. Smith eventually ended up in Kansas City and is the starting QB there. If Cousins keeps playing well and the Redskins continue to win, I expect Cousins to keep the starting job.
Monday/Tuesday Previews: Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers 6:00am Well the 49ers first home preseason game at Levi's stadium is this week and it's a preview of the Week 7 Clash of the Titans, I honestly hope that the game lives up to expectations unlike the Super Bowl last season. Anyway the Ravens were too much for the 9ers last week and I couldn't really judge much from last week because Kaepernick only threw 1 pass for 17 yards with the drive ending in a field goal. Peyton Manning on the other hand looked in mid season form completing 10/13 for 78 yards. The one thing I look forward to seeing is Levi's stadium in action because it is a pretty neat stadium. Kansas City Chiefs @ Carolina Panthers 10:00am, FREE GAME NFL MOBILE APP. After narrowly escaping the Bengals last week the Chiefs look to take down Cam Newton who will play this week and the Carolina Panthers. The Chiefs offence looked good last week on the drive that they completed and Alex Smith looks pretty sharp. Kelvin Benjamin looks like he ...
Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Eli Manning and Russell Wilson – the 49ers will face four different Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. Outside of those top passers, San Francisco will have the task of stopping well-known, Pro Bowl-caliber quarterbacks like Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, Carson Palmer, Nick Foles, Alex Smith, Robert Griffin III and Philip Rivers. The 49ers new-look secondary will surely be tested

The rest of the top 10 most-liked players: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Interestingly, Smith ranks ahead of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who took Smith's job in San Francisco and played in the Super Bowl a year ago but sits only 14th on the most-liked list.
It frustrates me to no end to hear that Russell Wilson is just okay from sports experts if Russell Wilson was just okay the Seattle Seahawks would not have won the Super Bowl just okay is Alex Smith losing a game winning lead to the Colts in Indianapolis that's just okay
Oh to drive down to Carmel this week: Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning (kudos to him to go play in this high-profile event after what happened in the Super Bowl...maybe I'm starting to like him...yes I said it), Condolezza Rice, Chris Berman, Aaron Rogers, Alex Smith, Wayne Gretzky, Andy Roddick, never mind all the professional golfers! Although thank you AT&T at Pebble Beach for bringing much-needed rain to the Bay Area. Forecast is for rain Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, kind of a tradition at this tournament.
MANNING TO CURE SUPER BOWL HEARTACHE AT Pebble Beach NFL Most Valuable Player Peyton Manning will play in this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, just a few days after his Denver Broncos' 43-8 loss on Sunday to the Seattle Seahawks at the Super Bowl. Tournament officials confirmed the news Tuesday afternoon. Manning, who will play at a 7 handicap, will be one of many celebrity amateurs in the field. Several other NFL personalities are in the field, including fellow NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady (New England), Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay) and Alex Smith (Kansas City), as well as Patriots coach Bill Belichick. It will be Manning's second appearance in the tournament, having partnered with Webb Simpson in 2009. Manning has also played in other pro-am events on the PGA TOUR, including in 2009 at the Wells Fargo Championship when he played with Tiger Woods. Manning and Woods were also paired together in 2005 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. Manning won his fifth NFL MVP award in the ...
This game is awful. I don't see how Seattle is dominating when they barely made it to the Super Bowl. They won in the last few seconds at Candlestick Park (their home field) vs San Francisco. Well, I'm pretty proud of my team now. Colin Kaepernick, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Alex Smith & Frank Gore did pretty good against them!
Super Bowl Question Last year when the 49ers went to the Super Bowl, Colin Kapernick did NOT start Alex Smith did but Colin started in the Super Bowl because of Smith injury. Which two players started the season as a backup, then started in the regular season & continue playing to end up the starting QB in the Super Bowl due to the starter's injury?
NFL Super Bowl 48 Predictions: Denver Broncos vs Seattle Seahawks How SEA can beat DEN: This Seattle Seahawks defense have been the epitome of greatness throughout the entire 2013 season, led by the Legion of BOOM. Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Byron Maxwell musy continue to play that dominant role against a high powered offense of the Denver Broncos. They must win in the coverage game, creating coverage sacks. That front 7 of the Seattle Seahawks will need to utilize pressure on that Broncos offensive line, disrupt QB Peyton Manning`s timing, and hit him a couple times. Get as much 3 and outs as possible, the more you accomplish that, the more likely you will have Manning sitting on the bench, watching the defense win the game for them-which can create long-shot situations. Offensively, QB Russell Wilson must be FLAWLESS. He has been playing mediocre for the past 2 playoff games, but has made the plays when needed. He has to be Alex Smith-esque when it comes to playing game manager. U ...
As a participant and fan of team sports my entire life, I understand that winning all of the time is not a reality. And being a 49er fan for as long as I can remember has put us through many challenging times. .. I remember vaguely coming of prominence in the early 80's, the dynasty years, the many years I sat at the Stick watching the likes of Troy Smith, Shaun Hill, and Alex Smith. Now with Colin at the helm and much QB evolution expected, the future is bright. We have played in the last 3 conference championships and been to the Super Bowl with this group. With Harbaugh leading the way, with the talent we have, in conjunction with lots of draft picks, there is every reason to be optimistic about this team and the rivalry with the Seahawks. I am sure there will be many more battles to come. Great season Niners. .. congratulations on making it to a 3rd straight conference Championship Game. And with a heavy heart and a bitten tongue I say congratulations Seahawks on a great season and a job ...
Today's loss is hard to swallow but when you look at what the Chiefs went through last year but it is just a first step to becoming legitimate Super Bowl contenders very soon. They went From 2-14 to 11-5 while having 33 of the 53 man roster as new Chiefs. Not too shabby. This loss hurts real bad but when you lose major players, the momentum shifts, and you are playing on the road that equals a major comeback victory for Indy. Andrew Luck somehow brought them back even after throwing 3 INTs. I mean you can point fingers all you want but you can't point them at Alex Smith. Alex had an amazing game and I'm proud he is our QB. Chiefs will be back stronger than ever next season after they sign FA's and have a good draft. I trust John Dorsey and Andy Reid. Trust me Chiefs will come back hungrier next year. Kendrick Lewis needs to be gone and they need a MLB, and another WR. Other than that Chiefs are SOLID. See ya next season Chiefs. Thanks for a great season. --KC4L
I'm not saying I'm just saying... IF the sports gods happened to smile on us for all of the sports *** they've put us through and we happen to win or even REACH the Super Bowl, how would they a NOT make a movie about it? Eventually, like 10 years down the line... Opening scene is the beginning of 2012 season. Casting?? Off the top of my head Channing Tatum as Brady Quinn, Justin Timberlake as Alex Smith... Oh if I'm throwing JT in there we can throw Jimmy Fallon is as Ryan Succop... Thoughts??
In light of the 49ers-Redskins game tonight ... has your impression of Colin Kaepernick changed since the end of last season? 49ers fans: Do you still think he can lead the team to a Super Bowl win? Would you rather have Alex Smith?
Hey, a fun little stat: From the start of the 2011 season until he was replaced, Alex Smith was 19-5-1 as a starter with the Niners. Since replacing him, Colin Kaepernick is 13-7. Yeah he got to the Super Bowl, but c'mon, that team was stacked. Alex Smith is 9-0 this year. Just saying...
I still believe that the 49'ers would have won the Super Bowl last year if they had not benched Alex Smith. I am not a believer of Colin Kaepernick. I think I might hate you Colin.
There's no way I'd rather have Alex Smith doing his best Chad Pennington impression trying to get a team to the Super Bowl.
NFL HALF WAY MARK We have entered the second half of this exciting NFL season. The excitement is due to the seemingly shakeup of the league. Notoriously bad teams are thriving and teams with high expectations are in the decline. Biggest Performers: Kansas City Chiefs - With the addition of their new Head Coach Andy Reid and cautious QB Alex Smith; The Chiefs along with their hard nose defense (8) have run the table in the first half with an 9-0 record. The Chiefs hold a 1 game lead over the pegged Denver Broncos. Denver Broncos - Minus their slip up against the Indianapolis Colts; the Denver Broncos have put themselves ahead of the pack, led by rocket launcher Peyton Manning. Manning leads the league in passing yards, touchdowns, QB rating and 2nd in completion % Carolina Panthers - After losing their first two games, we thought they were in for a losing season. It's been said that Cam Newton has matured this year and, it's starting to show. He has always been a big stat QB but, this time they're translat ...

NFL rankings on the internet this AM with Denver at the top followed by Seattle, ooh that Russell Wilson. But surprising, to me, are the 9ers at 5th, with a 2-2 record and a sputtering start. Cited for that placement was a "convincing" win against the Rams, that dog won't hunt. This is truly Colin Kaepernick's season, his name was in the lineup at the QB spot from the git go. What happens will be on him. Now Alex Smith was no world beater, and I can see why Harbaugh went with Kap, but this is the NFL, they make adjustments quickly and hit hard. Harbaugh will be tested also for his move, he rolled the dice and they made the Super Bowl, with that roll, but some of those chips that got them there were Alex Smith's. This year that roll will really be tested, as will be Kaepernick. You make steel by putting raw iron under heat and pounding out the impurities. Raw iron looks strong, but when put under stress it breaks, fractures and gives away. Steel, has not only strength, but gives under stress and rebounds t ...
Couple of random thoughts regarding the NFL: The San Francisco 49ers must be thinking about how they gave up on Alex Smith. Chiefs are 3-0, and the 49ers are 1-2, outscored 56-10 in their last two games. Colin Kaepernick stunk it up again today. He might be a problem. I thought they were Super Bowl favorites, but they will need some breaks just to win their division. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants are stinking it up. They are teams looking for leadership and are unlikely to make the playoffs. The Washington Redskins have a lousy defense. Robert Griffin III might be Superman, but their defense will sink them. The Philadelphia Eagles need to be blown up. I watched the players ignore Chip Kelly. They ignored Andy Reid as well. Losers. The Miami Dolphins are a huge surprise. They play hard and their success is showing (3-0). I just hate their new helmets and uniforms. Yet again, the lack of understanding tradition just *** I might not be a Jerry Jones fan, but I do appreciate his willing ...
Here's my prediction..Mike Jones, Chuck Vogt, and all other Chefs fans.I have a prediction, that Alex Smith will get his revenge on the 49ers/Coach Harbaugh...and only way to do that is for your Chefs to beat the 9ers in the Super Bowl...sound like fun...
*** KC Chiefs 3-0!!! I was happy that they went out and got Andy Reid and Alex Smith. I wasn't confident they could do anything, but the team sure needed something. We've been kicked around long enough. Still not dreaming of the Super Bowl, but 3-0!! My enjoyment was spoiled somewhat by the color man Mike Mayock. It's OK that he's an Eagle homer, but that high pitched annoying voice. Does he over shut up? The play by play guy can't get a word in.
Thought I would share one of the articles I wrote today for GME Magazine for all my Kansas Citians. Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City ChiefsBlaine Gabbert is listed as questionable for today’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. If Gabbert is unable to play today, Chad Henne will take over the quarterback position. Kansas City will be under new management this season as Andy Reid takes over. Reid had nine postseason berths, five NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl appearance in his prior 13 years with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will be accompanied by a new quarterback in Alex Smith. Through nine starts last season with the 49ers, Smith led the NFL with a 70.0 completion percentage and ranked third with a 104.1 Passer Rating before suffering a concussion. Kansas City has six returning Pro Bowlers this season – 1,500-yard rusher Jamaal Charles, linebackers Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Derrick Johnson, safety Eric Berry and punter Dustin Colquitt. They also re-signed Dwayne Bowe for Al ...
Charles: Alex Smith is a Super Bowl quarterback - Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles called new Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith a Super Bowl-caliber passer, reports NFL.com. "I think he is," Charles said. "He's got a great arm. He's been winning most all of his career. I think he wants to prove people wrong: That he is a good quarterback, that he can stay consistent." Charles said the decision to bench Smith for Colin Kaepernick last season is all the motivation Smit...
I'm so sick of people saying that this Kansas City faggets chiefs r going to win the afc west and then the Super Bowl. Who cares if they have Andy Reid and Alex Smith. So I say we get the crying towels for them when they don't make it out from last place in the AFC WEST.
IN OUR THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS STORY: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is certainly the Bay Area's most exciting young passer these days. The second-year man from Nevada took over for Alex Smith last November, and brought a team that seemed a great quarterback away from the Super Bowl to that precise destination. The 49ers' 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII took none of the bloom off the rose, and the team seems in very good shape for the next few years with a smart signal-caller who can run linebackers to total fatigue and make every throw destined to drive cornerbacks crazy. As it turns out, Kaepernick -- who was selected in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the 49ers -- was very much on the radar of northern California's other NFL team. As SI.com's Peter King wrote in his most recent MMQB column, the Oakland Raiders, then led by Head Coach Hue Jackson, had Kaepernick set as their top quarterback prospect. Yes, ahead of the five quarterbacks who preceded Kaepe ...
The Chiefs are definitely going to the Super Bowl. Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles, and Leon Sandcastle is just TOO much talent on one team.
49ers Breakdown: By John Breech Team overview: If you don't count the first two quarters of Super Bowl XLVII or David Akers' entire season, the 49ers were almost perfect in 2012. The defense finished the season ranked third in the NFL and the offense wasn't too shabby either, ranking 11th overall -- but lets talk more about the defense. The 49ers defense had four All-Pro players, including linebackers NaVorro Bowman -- who finished second in the league in tackles -- and Aldon Smith, whose 19.5 sacks in 2012 trailed only J.J. Watts' 20.5. Offensively, Coach Jim Harbaugh's decision to start Colin Kaepernick is the gift that keeps on giving for San Francisco. First, it paid off when Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl. Then it paid off again when the 49ers were able to send backup Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a 2013 second-round draft pick and a conditional 2014 pick. The trade will free up $9.75 million in cap space for the 49ers. Except for taking receiver A.J. Jenkins in the first round of the 2012 ...
Not quite sure if KC Chiefs made the right choice at QB. Never was a huge believer in Alex Smith, but hey I thought Matt Casell was gonna be somebody! Interesting Super Bowl nugget, only ten teams have won a title with a quarterback they DIDN'T draft. Jim Plunket and the Raiders did it twice. Even more interesting is, of those teams, the non-original QB's had HOF careers. Favre, Warner, Brees and Steve Young. Dilfer and Brad Johnson are really the only, "one-hit wonders" in the group. The other winners are Joe Theismann and Doug Williams, both with D.C. Oddly enough, those Joe Gibbs' Skins won three SB's with three different QB's and the third, Mark Rypien, was drafted by Washington. Anyway, the point being, it's hard to win a Super Bowl with a quarterback you traded for rather then draft. KC's Super Bowl hopes ride on Smith's shoulders for at least the next 3-4 years. The quarterback who brings them back to the Super Bowl is probably playing his sophomore year in college right now.
See, I don't like being teased, not like this anyway. ;) I just heard an UNCONFIRMED report (i.e. rumor) that there is a possibility that Jon Gruden might be under consideration, and may be interested, in returning as Head Coach of the Oakland Raiders! Im trying very hard not to get my hopes up, but man, that would be absolutely awesome! Gruden is probably the closest thing to John Madden as any coach can get. He thinks aggressive football, and he has a great football mind. His last turn with the Raiders, he was 38-26 and took them from the doldrums to TWO playoff appearances. When he left for Tampa, he went 57-55 with three playoff appearances and a Super Bowl! I can only imagine him at the helm without Al Davis (R.I.P.) peering over his shoulder! With Peyton Manning at Denver and now Alex Smith at KC, if Jon makes it back to Oakland, the AFC West will get very interesting again. Of course, even if it happens, there is the question of whther the Raiders are too far gone for even a guy like Gruden to help ...
"In his speech Obama blamed Republicans for inaction, saying that their hostility to any sort of extra tax revenues being generated from rich Americans was the root cause of the problem." - The Guardian reports. Dearest friends and family.I dont want to upset anyone with my insginificant and ill - informed political commentary, but please: Leaders don't point fingers. Leaders lead. In addition, a rational mind knows that a complex problem like this cannot be summed up in one sentence. I hope Obama was mis-quoted!! This is like Jim Harbaugh telling the media, "Yeah, you can blame our loss in the Super Bowl on that team we were playing when Alex Smith got his concussion 2 months ago. "
Colin Kaepernick praises Alex Smith: After Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl, it's no surprise ...
NHL Stanley Cup Memorabilia from The Bradford Exchange Online
Colin Kaepernick filled in for an injured Alex Smith and the rest is history. He led the San Francisco 49ers all the way to the Super Bowl, which they eventually lost to the Baltimore Ravens, and Coach Jim Harbaugh never looked back at Alex Smith holding that clip board. The 49ers were originally in...
30 different qb's have won the 47 Super Bowls, 19 of which were either drafted by the team they won with or were acquired by that team before the start of their rookie season. There have been 11 QB's that have won the Super Bowl more than once. Repeat winners: Bradshaw & Montana(4), Aikman, Brady(3), E. Manning, Griese, Staubach, Starr, Elway, Plunkett (2). Of the 11 multiple Super Bowl winning QB's, only Jim Plunkett won 2 and doesn't fit into the category as he was a failure for the Patriots and the 49ers before enjoying success with the Raiders. Just shows how stupid the Chiefs move was for trading for Alex Smith. You don't give up potentially 2 2nd round draft choices for a guy who was a back-up somewhere else. History indicates the best way to find your QB is through the draft. Last time the Chiefs drafted a QB in round 1: Todd Blackledge in 1983 out of Penn State, passing up on Kelly and Marino. This is a major contributing factor to the Chiefs not making the Super Bowl since the 1969 season ...
49ers To Send Smith To KC by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS February 27, 2013 6:00 PM San Francisco (AP) — Alex Smith quietly stayed behind the scenes after losing his job and watched from the sideline as San Francisco returned to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years. Yet the No. 1 overall draft pick from 2005 did make one thing known: The veteran quarterback still considers himself a starter. And he hoped to get that chance again. Now, he appears to have it. The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to acquire Smith from the 49ers in the first major acquisition since Andy Reid took over as the team's new coach in early January, a person with knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot become official until March 12, when the NFL's new business year begins. Another person familiar with the swap said the 49ers will get a second-round pick in April's draft, No. 34 overall, and a conditional pick in the 2014 draft. After spending ...
Remember you guys heard it from me first it's going to be Alex Smith against Colin Kaepernick in the Super Bowl
Chiefs acquire QB Alex Smith from 49ers for 2nd-round and conditional mid-rounder Jim Harbaugh is a genius. Alex Smith was considered to be a candidate for release when Harbaugh took over as Head Coach of the 49ers. However, Harbaugh claimed that he was a fan of Smith's when the Utah product entered the league. Harbaugh then coached him up and turned him into a solid starter. It was obvious though that Smith would never lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl because of his limitations. That's why Harbaugh made the obvious choice to go with Colin Kaepernick. Well, it was obvious to everyone except the Chiefs. This is an absolutely terrible trade for them. Smith, without Harbaugh, is a pedestrian signal-caller at best. He'll regress without Harbaugh, just as Matt Cassel did when he lost Charlie Weis. Andy Reid has been good with quarterbacks, but he's no Harbaugh
Bengals Draft Talk Should the Bengals decide to trade down or out of the 1st round. The best trade partner appears to be, the old Super Bowl rivials, the San Francisco 49ers. They now have 14 picks in the 2013 NFL Draft after trading QB Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs. Thoughts?
Alex Smith for a 2nd rounder and a conditional pick next year...Wow! The Niners just scored. Now release Carlos Rodgers and let Dashon Goldson leave and Go trade for Revis and Harvin. Sign another top teir cornerback, franchise D. Walker and Draft Defense heavy. And ill see you in nexy years Super Bowl.
From CBSSPorts.com: Somewhere, 49ers' general manager Trent Baalke could be doing the dance of joy. The 49ers reportedly have agreed to trade backup quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to CBS Sports Mike Freeman, for two second-round picks. The first of those -- No. 34 in the 2013 draft. The other is a second-rounder in 2014. That brings San Francisco's staggering total to 15 selections (about 6 percent of the entire seven-round pool), a level of flexibility we haven't seen in recent years, even at the height of Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli's draft trade wizardry. There are 15 spots available on the Super Bowl runner-up's roster. Coach Jim Harbaugh said "obviously, we'll be more active" in this draft during his stick-and-move sparring session with media at the combine based solely on the quantity of picks (SF had seven picks in 2012). Whether there is a move to be made in this draft or future years remains to be seen, but chasing upper-round selections in future years when they m ...
from CSNBAYAREA: Programming note: Relive the 49ers' run to the Super Bowl by tuning in to '49ers Final Cut,' premiering tonight at 6:30 on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Every NFL decision-maker and agent will be in Indianapolis through the weekend for the NFL scouting combine. If the 49ers don't already know, they should have a strong indication of the trade market for backup quarterback Alex Smith in the coming days. The trade period officially begins March 12 at 1 p.m. (PT). But conversations will undoubtedly occur throughout the next week. Any team interested in trading for Smith would pick up the final two years of his contract, in which he is scheduled to make from $8 million to $11 million annually. That is the price the 49ers paid for Smith a year ago after he was under center for a team that won 14 games and advanced to the NFC Championship Game. With the league-wide salary cap not expected to rise much in 2013, it's possible any team that might want Smith might want him at their own price. Kansas ...
NFL trade rumors: Alex Smith trade market limited The San Francisco 49ers have a new starting quarterback named Colin Kaepernick who helped lead them to the Super Bowl this past season. However, while they would like to now pull off an Alex Smith trade, rotoworld reported on Feb. 13 that the trade market for Smith is "limited." While earlier rumors have the 49ers interested in a Percy Harvin trade, it doesn't look like Minnesota is interested in Alex Smith. Head Coach Leslie Frazier told ESPN that he was not going to bring in competition for Christian Ponder in 2013 and had faith in his quarterback. That eliminates another team that San Francisco could talk to for Smith's services. While Buffalo, Arizona and Cleveland could use an upgrade... ~SportsMan
We thought it would be fun to post famous people who have been adopted. Sine we are big 49ers fans I thought we would start with Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick began his pro career as the 49ers' backup to starter Alex Smith. In the middle of the 2012 season, Kaepernick filled in for an injured Smith and became the full-time starter as the 49ers advanced to the NFL playoffs for the second straight season. He set an NFL record for most rushing yards (181) by a quarterback in a game (playoffs or regular season) in his first playoff game. After beating the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship 28-24, he led the 49ers to their first Super Bowl since 1994.
Michael Vick and the Eagles have restructured his contract, taking him off the market. This means one less team looking to compete with the Cards for Smith. Yes I have called Smith a game manager, yes I think that Kap is the better QB, and yes I want Smith in AZ!!! I think that he can fit in our system perfect. Arians is a traditionalists pocket passer QB Coach. I would love the dynamic explosive threat of Kap and his arm, but Arians would not use a Kap in that capacity. With our solid D, an improved coaching staff and front office, if we can get our "backs" some o-line protection, Alex Smith fits perfect!!! AZ hosts the Super Bowl played in 2015. So 2014, NFC Championship Game, AZ 24, San Fran, 21! Of course, I think that SF wants to shop Smith to KC which means Stanton will probably be our starting QB, who? Exactly ;(((
This may come as a surprise, but the 49ers are going to trade Alex Smith. I know, I know. It’s sudden. I mean, the Super Bowl just ended — unfavorably at that. For all we know, Jimmy Smith is still holding Michael Crabtree — though, at this point, it’s probably more of a cuddle than a hold. Ray Lewi...
I'm sure I could never fully fathom what it would be like to lose a Super Bowl and I imagine is quite disheartening.but all these interviews I see with Colin Kaepernick.he acts like a child whose had his candy stolen. Alex Smith handled losing his job better than this kid did one game!
Yeah. The 49ers lost... It *** .. I've waited 18 years since the day Steve Young won the Niners their 5th trophy. I remember jumping up and down in my crib when I was 2 years old, when they won... :P I've waited so long see them back in the Super Bowl for their sixth trophy.. Sadly, they fell short. That was a BEAST second half. Just not good enough. I've waited patiently for that day. I was a faithful fan through the difficult years, when they were finishing seasons off like 4-12, 3-13, and so on. I was a fan when Alex Smith first arrived, and his rookie season was a disaster, throwing only 1 TD pass all season and picked off 23 times... Fan through all the offensive coordinator and Head Coach changes... But these last two years have been some of the best, thanks to the arrival of Jim Harbaugh and Colin Kaepernick. Harbaugh turned around Alex Smith, making him improve substantially. Beating the Saints in the playoffs last year, and beating the Packers at Lambeau this year... Anyway, I'm always going to . ...
Colin Kaepernick knows how to make the news. From opinion pieces on his many tattoos, to Super Bowl coverage, the 25-year-old NFL quarterback attracts major media attention. Kaepernick ascended to the coveted Super Bowl position when San Francisco 49’ers regular QB, Alex Smith, was injured mid-seaso...

New York Jets – Let The Madness Begin (Or Just Continue) With the Super Bowl in the rear-view mirror, the off-season rumor mill is going to pick up speed and begin to be overflowed with endless amounts of crap being thrown against the wall. Remember that before you get yourself in a huff about the Jets contemplating the possibility of trading Darrelle Revis for Alex Smith or thinking any team will have interest in Tim Tebow. Considering the New York Jets have a new GM and it is unclear what the power dynamic in the front office will shake out to be, it is hard to project what will happen. We can discuss what needs to happen or just how many issues there truly are but there isn’t much concrete information available right now. What can we piece together at this point? With the salary cap situation, the release of Bart Scott, Calvin Pace, Eric Smith and Jason Smith is a foregone conclusion. There is also a reasonable chance that Sione Pou’ha will be cut. The team will try to trade Tim Tebow but realist ...
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is as conservative as a blue blazer, gray slacks and black wing tips. It's time for a change. Garrett should try wearing Robert Graham shirt -- the more colorful the cuffs, the better --- and a pair of designer jeans from a consignment shop in the Bishop Arts district. For Garrett to keep his job as coach of the Dallas Cowboys for more than one more season, he must leave his comfort zone and the conservative approach he's used with the Cowboys and be bold next season. Understand, this ain't about trick plays. Or going for it on fourth down. It's about a mindset that shows his team winning is all that matters. Garrett must have the self-confidence and courage to make a bold move when the opportunity presents itself. That's the only way Garrett can remove this once-proud franchise from the muck of mediocrity. Garrett can look to each Super Bowl team for example. San Francisco Coach Jim Harbaugh benched Alex Smith, then the NFL's top-rated passer, for Colin Kaepernick, who ...
Super Bowl commentator brilliant statement of the day. Bill Cowher (during the blackout): "Maybe the 49ers should consider going with Alex Smith here." Apparently the blackout reached Cowher's brain too.
Five observations about the Super Bowl: 1 Didn't actually see it, a lapse in thinking resulted in me catching the result on the local news. 2 See ya Ray Lewis, exit stage left. 3 Colin Kaepernick in charge ad QB, Alex Smith will need to look for a job somewhere else. 4 The power going out was a big shift in the game, was set to be a blow out. 5 Once again the curse of Joe Namath present as the Jets fail to reach the Big Game again.
My post-Super Bowl analysis, in three verses: 1. I'd take either Harbaugh over any other coach in the league. 2. Speaking of coaches ... Bill Cowher ought to have disqualified himself from ever coaching again with the suggestion that Alex Smith be called on in relief of Colin Kaepernick. Smith is a capable NFL quarterback. Kaepernick is special. 3. Every Super Bowl needs a 35-minute power outage. I got a lot of housework done.
What a great NFL season! One of the more exciting ones I can remember in a long time. Recap: 1. Replacement refs [entertaining disaster] 2. Bounty-Gate [Saints fans send their love, Goodell] 3. Seahawks touch down that wasn't [Packers fans will never forget] 4. Young QBs making statements [RG3, Wilson, Luck, Kap] 5. Veteran QBs maintaining dominance [Peyton, Brees, Brady] 6. Benching of Alex Smith [is he's frowning or smiling today] 7. Adrian Peterson's MVP season [he's back] 8. Ray Lewis last ride [possibly helped by "deer-antler spray"?!?] 9. Women taking over the Super Bowl [J Hudson, A Keys, Beyonce] 10. The lights go out at the Big Game [was it a 49ers legend like Steve Young, Ronnie Lott OR the revenge of Saints fans] I am sure I missed some things. Feel free to add in comments. Congratulations to the NFL to a memorable 2012-13 season and a terrific game.
My last whining. The 49ers offensive coordinator should be fired or shot, maybe both. With the Super Bowl there for the taking, despite an afternoon full of mistakes, he went conservative the last three plays and tried to turn Colin Kaepernick into Alex Smith. The whole point of switching to Kaepernick was to stress the opposing defense with the threat of running. If you are just going to drop back and throw the ball three times in a row then Alex Smith is a better Alex Smith than Kaepernick is. Dude had a 157 QB rating the last game he played before the concussion, and he's mobile enough to move and throw on the run. Kaepernick is there to pressure the defense with the run option. You can't take that away from him with the Super Bowl on the line. Again, that was why they made the switch in the first place. So frustrating to watch a professional coach absolutely brain freeze when it's been 18 years since your team's been in the Super Bowl. I'll be 55 in April, there's no guarantee I even have another 18 y ...
Cardinals vs Patriots in the Super Bowl next year. Forget I wrote this if they don't land a QB like Alex Smith or Matt Flynn.
And this is why analysts should only analyze before, halfway through and after the game.seriously debating whether Alex Smith should replace Kaepernick? Bill Cowher, you won a Super Bowl, but SERIOUSLY?
My official hottie(s) of the Super Bowl announcement: Vernon Davis (because of his smile), and Alex Smith (because he's adorable). Cassiday and Jerry, thought you might wanna know. ;)
My prediction for the Super Bowl... Ravens over 49ers 24-20... MVP: Ray Lewis (14 tackles, creating a turnover)... unless the 49ers win, where I would pick Alex Smith as the MVP coming off the bench in relief of an injured Colin Kaepernick and leading SF to a 27-24 win... but, I believe Ravens take this one...
SUPER BOWL PREDICTION: Ok, her's my thought. Both teams are good. They are both physical teams that are pretty well balanced and play good defense. I like both of them honestly. Personally I might want to see the Ravens win more. 1.) I like the whole team dynamic they have, 2.) I like John Harbaugh a little better I think, although i don't know why, 3.) most importantly, if the 49ers win they will have 6 total Super Bowls, to Dallas's 5. Really don't want that to happen. They would also be undefeated in the Super Bowl. Also don't want that to happen. But, I do like them. They Run the ball well, philosophically they stand for everything I do. So that's cool. San Fran has a better run game, they are better at controlling the clock, they have 2 really good QB's, so if Kaepernick goes down, Alex Smith is right there. And both have better ratings than Flaco. Granted, they don't throw the ball as much. Bottom line, San Fran is just more talented, and better at doing things like running the ball and controlling ...

I think the Colin Kaepernick tips the scales in tonight's Super Bowl. I've got the San Francisco 49ers over the Baltimore Ravens. Who ya got?
The years of watching Steve Marriucci's coaching career go into a downward spiral after Steve Young left, and then the years of Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary having to learn the hard way that they just are not meant to be Head Coaches in the NFL, and all the terrible losses that made us go crazy where we just had no idea what the *** Jeff Garcia was thinking on a play or why the management would ever choose to draft Alex Smith over Aaron Rodgers... finally have become worth it. Literally have never been so excited for any sporting event. A win today puts the NIners 6-0 all time in the Super Bowl and would symbolize the return to greatness of one of the greatest dynasties in all of professional sports! Lets go niners!
I feel like its the first day at a new job, Christmas when I was kid, the night before my wedding, when I found I was going to be a father, and when I got arrested all combined into one. Approximately 18 Years Ago I became a 49ers fan when I watched them beat the Chargers 49-26 and Steve Young threw a Super Bowl record 6 touchdown passes. Since then I watched them lose to the Falcons in '98 when Garrison Hearst's ankle broke in half in the first quarter, the Catch II when the Niners beat Green Bay on a TD pass with 6 seconds left down by four to Terrell Owens, TO's celebration in Cowboy stadium by Standing on the Star at midfield, the Niners come back from down 24 points and win against the Giants in 2002, and go 2-14 in 2004 only to pass on Aaron Rogers in favor of Alex Smith with the number 1 overall pick. I watched Alex Smith get benched and cast off 243 times before finally redeeming his career under Jim Harbaugh only to have it snatched away with the emergence of Colin Kaepernick. I watched good, bad ...
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith will be on the sidelines of the Super Bowl this weekend, after suffering a concussion midway through the season. Now he's counseling teammate Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback who replaced him. "The good ones stay ready," he says.
When the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers take the field for Super Bowl XLVII, the Lombardi Trophy won't be the only thing on the line: LEGACIES will be as well. Winning a championship has a way of changing the perception of an athlete, and for these players and these Coaching brothers, the stakes have never been higher. Frank Gore has been so underappreciated throughout his career that it's criminal. He's the leading rusher in 49ers history, but fans speak more fondly of former San Francisco backs Roger Craig, Ricky Watters and even Tom Rathman. Why? Because those players have Super Bowl rings. When you play for an organization as rife with success and championships as the 49ers, you're measured by how much you win, and to be fair, Gore's 49ers haven't been much of a winner since he was drafted in 2005. Now, is that Gore's fault? Certainly not. It wasn't Gore who decided that the immortal J.T. O'Sullivan should start in 2008. It wasn't Gore who selected Alex Smith over Aaron Rodgers in the 2005 d ...
Hm, some very interesting facts here. What do you think? 9: Career starts for Colin Kaepernick Jeff Hostetler had started just four regular season games and six total before defeating the Buffalo Bills in thrilling fashion in Super Bowl XXV. Vince Ferragamo had started just five career regular season games and seven total before taking the field as the leader of the Rams' offense in Super Bowl XIV against Pittsburgh. Colin Kaepernick will rank third all-time with just seven regular season and nine total starts under his belt when he takes the field Sunday night. He is just the fourth QB to start in the Super Bowl in the same season in which he made his regular season staring debut (Ferragamo, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady). Ironically, nine also is the number of times Alex Smith was sacked by Baltimore in the only previous meeting between John and Jim Harbaugh in 2011’s 16-6 Thanksgiving win for the Ravens. 0: Interceptions thrown by 49ers QBs in five Super Bowls Everyone knows the 49ers are 5-0 all-time in Su ...
2013 Super Bowl: 49ers will have cap room for Alex Smith in 2013 per Jed York
Who am I picking in the Super Bowl ? Here is what I think , I know a lot of you will disagree , but W.G.A.S. ? Baltimore : Yeah , okay , Ray Lewis is retiring . SO ??? Ed Reed and Matt Birk (c) may be playing their last game in a Ravens uniform as well . how far can the "Win it for the Gipper " crap really go on for ??? Flacco has been very good in the playoffs so far this year , but does anybody here really believe he was that great against Denver ? While we are on the Denver game , how about the fact that Peyton Manning TORE THEIR "GREAT D " UP ? The Ravens won that game because Denver CHOKED , LONG AND HARD ! They played better than the Patriots , but San Francisco blew out the Pats a little over a month ago . San Francisco : Colin Kaepernick ??? Don't get me wrong , I think he is a great QB ,and I 100% believe that he makes the team BETTER , especially the WRs . he can actually get the ball to them ! BUT Alex Smith was 2 fumbled punts away from having this team in the Super Bowl LAST YEAR . The "pass ...
March 12th will be here before we know it and the shape of NFL teams for the 2013 season will start to unfold.  There are already several rumors regarding players still under contract who could be released, others that have some value on the trade market like the 49er’s Alex Smith, and a handful of free agents likely to have new contracts with their current teams before March ever gets here.   But let’s take a preliminary overview at some of those names, and even toy with some ideas as to where they may wind up…     Quarterbacks: Setting aside their inspirational Super Bowl run upon Ray Lewis’ return, the Baltimore Raven’s late-season collapse in 2012 without Lewis was a preview of what the 2013 team will look like.  And all signs indicated that team might be better off saving their money instead of giving Joe Flacco a bloated contract.  Time would eventually ease such speculation and it doesn’t appear Joe Flacco will ever hit the market in March.  What is working most in Flacco’s fa ...
Like most of us I’ve been reading a lot about the Niners this Super Bowl week. But, I was surprised to see no media reference at all to when the Debartolo-Yorks changed the identity of our beloved team in the 2000s from a progressive passing offense to defense and a power run team. Fashioned mostly by another “winning” franchise: you guessed it, the Baltimore Ravens. Keeping up with the Belichicks, the new century proved an opportunity for the new owners to evolve with the new defensive face of the NFL. In particular, after arguably the greatest linebacker of all time led his less than exciting team to a Super Bowl XXXV win in January, 2001. The Yorks of course poached the Ravens’ defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in 2005 as our savior, grasping for the pedigree or the coincidence that his father had decently coached the 49ers in the defensive 70s. And of course, his largest mark on the team would be drafting Alex Smith, passing over hometown favorite Aaron Rodgers because Nolan didn’t like his a ...
While I do not wish injury on a player this weekend the Super Bowl will have an interesting outcome. Colin Kapernick will get knocked out late in the first quarter by the Ravens. Alex Smith will come in and lead the 49ers to a win. ( although I am cheering for Ravens) . The injury Karma will come back for Alex Smith - it always does. What do the 49ers do in the offseason?? Final score 24 - 20 .
My boys got me on one today, Cody Hendrix Daniel Bowers...You want stat facts!!! Here we go: Randy OWNS 19 NFL Rec. Records / Randy had 17 different starting QB's in his career... Brad Johnson/Vikings, Dante Culpepper/Vikings, Kerry Collins/Raiders, Tom Brady/Patriots, Matt Cassel/Patriots, Vince Young/Titans, Rusty Smith/Titans, Alex Smith/49ers, Colin Kaepernick/49ers.To name a few. When he played with one of the best (Tom Brady) He had his Best Season Ever 10 years into his career!! Who did Jerry Rice play with.hmmm Joe 'Super Bowl' Montana and Steve Young...Two Hall Of Famers! The man throwing the ball makes a big difference...So to even be anywhere close to Jerry's stats shows that "Maybe" he IS the best of ALL TIME.Stats Don't Lie,, But the TRUTH hurts...

Too bad a Concussion put Alex Smith on the Bench for the Rest of the San Francisco 49'ers Season, as he had a higher Passer Rating that ALL of Those Quarterbacks who ended their Seasons in The Playoffs... He DESERVES his Release from the $8.5 Million Dollar Contract he is Under from the 49'ers, and now it Appears he is seeking the same... It's going to be a bittersweet week in New Orleans for 49ers backup quarterback Alex Smith. And it might be his last run as a member of the 49ers. The team is expected to try to trade Smith this offseason, given the $8.5 million he's owed in 2013. But a trade isn't the only way out of San Francisco -- Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Smith "is expected to seek" his outright release from the 49ers this offseason. It wouldn't be stunning if Smith is released: CBS Sports Jason La Canfora had Smith as his No. 3-ranked free-agent quarterback, a list made well in advance of even the Super Bowl. Smith and his big contract won't -- or, perhaps, can't --be in a backu ...
Montana picks 49ers to win, reminisces about quarterback switch, marvels at Kaepernick POSTED BY CAM INMAN ON JANUARY 28TH, 2013 AT 9:17 AM | CATEGORIZED AS UNCATEGORIZED Joe Montana expects the 49ers to win Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, and he’ll be there to see it, only the second Super Bowl he’ll have attended as a fan. Montana spoke to KNBR 680-AM on Tuesday, exactly 23 Years Ago to the day when he won his fourth and final Super Bowl ring in the 49ers’ 55-10 rout of the Denver Broncos at the Superdome. “I think the 49ers are going to win, but it’s going to be fun,”Montana told the “Murph and Mac” show. “Both quarterbacks are playing well, both defenses are playing well.” Colin Kaepernick will be making only his 10th start as the 49ers quarterback since replacing Alex Smith. That switch was the biggest sinceMontana and Steve Young set the standard for quarterback controversies 25 Years Ago. “I’ve been in that situation, and I missed a lot longer time,”Montana said in reference t ...
Jon Gruden to Dallas?! It's a possibility and one can dream! Alex Smith is asking for his release also. Romo's contract is coming to an end and Alex Smith does have a better Playoff record and was one win away from the Super Bowl last season.
I just woke up from a horrible nightmare that Colin Kaepernick got hurt in the 1st QTR of the Super Bowl and it was all up to Alex Smith. Oh please Lord don't let that come true!!!
The national media is inclined to focus the Alex Smith narrative on the negative aspects of Smith losing his job to Colin Kaepernick. There is an infinitely better story to tell in how he has handled the situation, and helped the 49ers Super Bowl run
Sure wish the Super Bowl was this Sunday instead of next week. Another week of hyping up the game by making nothing stories into something. Most infamous was the unfortunate reporter who, back in the late 80's asked Washington Redskin Doug Williams "So how long have you been a black quarterback." This week it's backup 49er quarterback Alex Smith saying he's rooting for his teammate starter Colin Kaepernick. Wow! What's he going to say "I hope Colin singlehandedly loses the game"? This is what happens with the 2 week hype instead of the normal one. The non contact Pro Bowl from Hawaii is on this Sunday.
It's been a great week. Been watching all my Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Vernon Davis, Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick playoff and Super Bowl film getting ready for the Super Bowl. Who's got it better than us?? NOBODY!
Thanks for telling it like it is Peter King at SI .com: The fact that in 2013 only one minority coach came close to a head-coaching job (Ray Horton in Arizona) is a black eye. The fact that Lovie Smith (84 wins and a Super Bowl berth in Chicago, coming off a 10-win season) will sit out the year after being passed over this month is bad too. According to research by my SI NFL writer friend Jim Trotter, 55 teams have won 10 games or more in the last five seasons, and Smith is the only one to have been fired the year he won double-digits. (Tony Dungy retired from the Colts after the 2008 season, but it was his choice.) Smith, after getting released by the Bears, had three interviews and no offers. Worse, I think, is that candidates like Perry Fewell, Jim Caldwell and David Shaw don't get a sniff. Fewell is the Giants defensive coordinator who choreographed last year's Super Bowl-winning run over Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Alex Smith and Tom Brady and held those four foes to an average of 14 points a game. No ...
In case you're wondering, Alex Smith is officially a member of the Colin Kaepernick fan club. Most young guys show flashes but then they have those rookie moments, boneheaded things.

I know as a Niner fan growing up I was incredibly spoiled by that team. From when I was a little lad until the last time they went to the Super Bowl the Niners went to 9 NFC Championship Games (including 6 in 7 years) winning 5 of them. Of course the league has changed since the 94 season. But despite the changes would any of you fans since then have believed it if I told you that between the 1994 season and the 2011 season the Niners would only make 2 NFC Title Games (losing both) while the following teams would all make it to the Big Game? Dallas - 1 Green Bay - 3 Atlanta (dirty Falcons) - 1 St. Louis (dirty Rams) - 2 NY Giants - 3 Tampa Bay (yes, Tampa) - 1 Carolina - 1 Philadelphia - 1 Seattle (dirty Seahawks) - 1 Chicago - 1 Arizona (dirty Cardinals) - 1 New Orleans (dirty Saints) - 1 I still don't think it is right how Alex Smith lost his job. But it is hard to argue with the results. It is still too early to tell how great Kap can be, if he will stay healthy and if he can produce the results consis ...

Put this in the short story book called No Guts, No Glory! On the West Coast Jim Harbaugh pulled a much criticized move to bench Alex Smith who had one of the highest QB ratings in football this year but a concussion midway through the year lead to unproven 2nd year QB Colin Kaepernick becoming started for the Niners for the rest of the season despite Smith regaining his health and being cleared to return. The result, the Niners to the Super Bowl. On the east coast, John Harbaugh, Jim's brother, decided to fire his offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, after 12 games despite the Ravens being in first place, replacing him with former Colt Head Coach Jim Caldwell. The two gutsiest coaching moves this year, and you can make the argument that those moves are why the HarBowl will happen in New Orleans in two weeks.
Earlier in the year, I questioned the wisdom of keeping Colin Kaepernick as starter for San Francisco. I felt that it would eventually catch up with us and catch us out. I also felt terrible for Alex Smith, who had by no means played badly. I wish him the best in whatever he does next. I also now believe that Jim Harbaugh knew what he was doing in keeping Colin in at quarterback. I was wrong; even if fate is against us and our sixth Super Bowl, I believe that we have our future settled at the QB position. whilst I can't help but worry about a quarterback who will be playing in what, his 9th game as a starter, I also think he has the smarts to play a great game for us. If he does and we win, Harbaugh is clearly a genius, and really does do what is best for the team. Let's go and win it!
Congrats to the 49ers and their fans! Jim Harbaugh should let Alex Smith play the first half of the Super Bowl and then Colin Kaepernick the second half. I think it's only fair!
West Coast REPRESENT.The 49ers are heading to a Super Bowl for the sixth time in franchise history. They will seek their sixth Super Bowl title when they face the winner of the Baltimore-New Orleans game in New Orleans on Feb. 3. Second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick will lead them there, further validating Coach Jim Harbaugh's decision to make Kaepernick the starter over Alex Smith.
The 49ers Alex Smith joins Rod Woodson, Jerry Rice & Tiki Barber as BBC guests to make it to the Super Bowl. Bodes well for
It's all Jim Harbaugh's fault. If he had stuck with Alex Smith, the Falcons would be in the Super Bowl.
Shout out to Jim Harbaugh, he took mad criticism when he replaced Alex Smith for Colin Kapernick, and all he's done is win, win, win. Captain comeback on his way to the Super Bowl.
This 9ers Super Bowl appearance is all made possible by Jim Harbaugh's decision to make Kaepernick the starting QB. Get decision because there was no way they would've made it with Alex Smith. Congrats 9ers.
Why the SF49ers Love to Stretch... San Francisco's Players Believe Their Fixation With Stretching Has Given the Team an Edge By KEVIN CLARK Getty Images Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith warm up. The San Francisco 49ers' two-year rise from the depths of mediocrity is widely attributed to ferocious defense and the dazzling running ability of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. But as the 49ers head to Atlanta favored to beat the Falcons this weekend and advance to their first Super Bowl in 18 years, here's another possibility: Maybe it's that they stretch a lot. That's not a proposition you'd want to state too loudly in the 49ers' locker room. The San Francisco stretching program is something team officials refuse to talk about, ostensibly for competitive reasons. But let's face it: The same 300-pound linemen who quickly brag about how much weight they can bench aren't likely to admit that they can do the splits. That's the province of cheerleaders, isn't it? Privately, 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh has made it clear t ...
Matt Schaub isn't a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback, no matter how badly the Houston Texans want him to be. Quarterbacks I'd compare him to include Carson Palmer, Jay Cutler and Alex Smith...
Skip Bayless on ESPN's First Take: "Alex Smith doesn't belong in the same sentence as Colin Kaepernick." Okay, but how about when you want to say: "Colin Kaepernick replaced the much less successful Alex Smith en route to winning his first Super Bowl"? Not so easy, is it Bayless?
It has been an interesting time to be a Niner fan, and seeing people’s statuses/comments every game and especially on Saturday inspired me to write this.   I appreciate that Alex Smith will never defeat Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs donning a Niners uniform. That would add insult to injury and be kind of cruel if you know the story. I want to tell this story about the Niners..   Walsh created a dynasty and fathered the West Coast offense. Walsh won 3 Superbowls with us before retiring and Seifert went on to win 2. We were the first NFL team to win 5 Super Bowls. No team that’s been in more than one Super Bowl has won every one. We are the 1st to 5 and 5/5.   But then we made mistakes and were cursed.   We ousted Mariucci (Cal) and sacked Garcia (Gilroy/SJSU) before releasing TO "Team Obliterator". Mariucci and Garcia were good and didn’t deserve that. We also passed up and slighted 2 NorCal kids. Tom Brady (Montana 2.0) and Aaron Rodgers (Young 2.0) grew up dreaming of being our quarterback. A b ...
Colin Kaepernick is sweet. However I can't bend just yet. Kaepernick's 49ers have to exceed Alex Smith's squad in order for me to make sense of the benching of Alex Smith. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm a fan of Kaepernick but only for the future of the 49ers organization. When your team is one fumbled punt return away from the Super Bowl its hard to understand why you'd implement, essentially, a rookie quarterback no matter what his potential. Add, to that logic, Alex Smith's success this season and it makes even less sense.
Dear Minnesota Vikings Front Office and Coaching staff Tonights game really showed how much help the team needs to actually compete for a Super Bowl, We need a backup QB or maybe a Starter, a few Wide Receivers, a corner these things can be fixed in a year. Some Key free agents or players that could be available Alex Smith at qb via trade or Joe Flacco. Some Wide Receivers are Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe. Now for the Corners we could get are Aqib Talib, Brent Grimes.These three positions will help our team to compete for a division and a championship.We can get these players and contend quickly or we can get a WR or a DB in the draft and plus add one or two guys and we will be a force to be wrecken with.

Some are from the TV broadcasts of the games, some are from reading through the game notes prepared by the teams, some are from my own notes I keep during the games, some are from reading through generic stat pages and pulling out what I find interesting, and some are from ESPN Stats & Info. 1) The Jags have 13 sacks 2) No one has ever averaged 17ppg & 9 reb in year 16 of their career (Tim Duncan) 3) Andy Dalton has never thrown a red zone INT 4) Marvin Lewis has 76 career wins without a playoff win (2nd all-time--Jim Mora) 5) The last 15 times the team in men's basketball has lost, 13 of those times was to an unranked team. 6) Over the last 8 years, only one Super Bowl had two seeds 7) Matthew Stafford is 24 years old 8) No team has ever allowed an average of 300 yards/game for a whole season (TB) 9) Alex Smith before Jim Harbaugh=72.15...with Harbaugh=95.08 10) Green Bay leads the NFL with 17 TD passes of 20+ yard ...
Thomas Kinkade Collectibles from The Bradford Exchange Online
The NFC West is going to be one competitive division next year. San Francisco is one of the best teams in the NFL, if not, the best. (They're my Super Bowl pick). They have a scary defense, and some major offensive weapons. Russell Wilson is a BEAST. High powered offense, and one scary defense, and Tony Kornheiser called them, "a border line great team." Which I totally agree. The Cardinals aren't going anywhere. If they make some good draft picks and acquisitions (offensive line) still without discounting the idea of Alex Smith and Kolb on the same team, we've got some good offensive weapons too, and a defense with a ton of talent. And I LOVE the direction the Rams have gone in. Jeff Fisher has really put a heart into that team, and Sam Bradford is only going to get better. They have a pretty underrated defense. If they beef up their offensive game, they're gonna be right in the mix of things (heck, they are now).-Brandon
Missed this from Friday, but here's what Bill Simmons had to say about the Kaepernick/Smith situation (and he was front and center for the Bledsoe/Brady situation): "Kaepernick fits the 2012 Niners better because he can throw downfield and make a couple of "WOW!" plays every game that they weren't getting with Smith. Long-term, he has a chance to be special — the way he responded in those first two starts certainly allows for that possibility. I thought Harbaugh needlessly risked a possible Super Bowl trip last week by starting Kaepernick again — if only because (as I wrote) you can't juggle QBs just like you can't juggle girlfriends — but clearly, Harbaugh had already determined that Kaepernick was his guy (and Smith was a goner). I look at it this way: If I'm a Falcons/Packers/Giants/Bears fan, I'm a little frightened of Kaepernick in January. And I wasn't frightened of Alex Smith. Same for Brady and Bledsoe 11 Years Ago. So yeah, I see the parallels." -- GG
I find it hilarious how all these wannabe experts/fake coaches who claim that Kaepernick was the solution all along. These were the same cats who were defending Alex Smith just a few weeks ago. Just let the "real coaches" do their job & you continue to be a fan. If your a "real fan" of the 49ers do you remember when Jeff Garcia got hurt & everybody wanted Tim Rattay cuz he had 2 great games? What happened after that!?!? Im not doubting Kaepernicks ability to be a starter, I just want some consistancy from the QB position. It doesnt matter who is the QB, all I ask is win every game & take us to the Super Bowl. Once again the defense came to play & saved Colin especially after he threw that pick before the Half. Its the same defense that Alex Smith went with to the NFC Championship. Everybody will continue to now what theyre talking about but there is only one guy that I trust with this & that is Jim Harbaugh. Great team win by the Niners. Keep the winning streak going. GO NINERS HARBAUGH I TRUST WINS CHAMP ...
" Yeah..and what did he do against the last-place Rams? Absolutely nothing until it was almost too late. Look... Alex Smith is the third rated passer in the NFL, he has the highest single-game QBR this season of any QB, he led the Niners to the seed in the NFC last year, and came back TWICE against the Aints last playoffs and would have had us in the Super Bowl were it not for Kyle Williams. He deserves our loyalty, and I've got his back. Harbaugh is an *** with his comments and worse if he actually "rotates" quarterbacks. It doesn't work in college. It doesn't work with Sanchez/Tebow. And it won't work for us. Kaep looked like Krap till this game, and if Steve Young can sport a clipboard a few years, so can Colin Kaepernick!!"
Kaep will be Aaron Rogers to Alex Smith's Brette Farve. Smith wants to win a Super Bowl to be like Steve Young
5 and 5. It took over two and a half months of scratching and clawing just to get to .500. To be average. We are not an average football team and the next three weeks will allow us to prove that. We get Frisco in our house and it will be our time to exact revenge on them for ending our season last year. Let's see Alex Smith look like Joe Montana in the Dome. I don't think so. And following that, I relish the opportunity to further show that the Falcons are frauds and that they are still the JV team to our varsity in the division. And the Giants? They are doing their typical November swoon, and although we will play in December and in the Meadowlands, I feel good about the match-up. After all, we blew them out at home just last year. And their Super Bowl run should have been ours.
did John Clayton really cop out and pick the two seeds currently, Atlanta and Houston, to go to the Super Bowl? You can never ever sleep on the Giants, thats one. Two, never count Peyton Manning out, Denver looks better every week. Three, he has completely forgotten that the league's best D is San Fran and if Alex Smith elevates his game, theyre going to be extremely tough to beat. And fourthly...New England...because...Tom Brady, enough said
Best part of the parade today: Jim Harbaugh driving Brandon Belt's car and Alex Smith driving Matt Cain's car. Guess this means the Niners HAVE to win the Super Bowl now, so the Giants can return the favor. God I love this town.
I think a MONSTER was created at the parade for the World Champion SF Giants. Driving the car for Matt Cain was 49er QB Alex Smith. And right behind them was Brandon Belt being driven by 49er Head Coach Jim Harbaugh. They've got the taste of CONFETTI in their mouth now and I think they want a parade of their own real bad! Watch out NFL! I think the loss to the NY Giants has ignited this team just like the 40-8 loss I witnessed at Candlestick Park in 1994, including George Seifert's benching of an irate Steve Young. They never lost another game that year and won the Super Bowl! The World Series Championship has only inspired the 49ers more! Get ready NFL. The MONSTER has come to life on Halloween!!!
Watching the post game show and seeing Steve Young sitting next to Alex Smith and just wishing Alex can get to the level Steve was at but as much of a NINER fan I am I know that will never happen. Niners Faithful need that Elite QB and not just a game manager like Smith but regardless I still believe we Super Bowl bound :)
I just gotta say it. Go Giants! Go Bears! RG3 = Legit. Eli Manning = Legitter. Seriously, let Tebow run the dang ball! Ravens are toast with no Ray Lewis. Brady Quinn is not the answer. Aaron Rodgers never left people, his defense doesn't always show up. Patriots are freakin garbage. They are folders and soft. There's no reason the Jets should be pounding anyone. At this point, Miami looks like the best team in the AFC East. The AFC will lose this Super Bowl. Whomever emerges from the NFC will be so strong and tough, that there is now way they lose. Nice win Raiders, you've still got heart. Keep fighting, that AFC West Title is still up for grabs. Never, ever, ever, bet against the Manning brothers. EVER. Cam Newton, you could learn a thing or two from them. Can anyone question the value of coaching anymore? Cowboys, all the talent in the world, garbage. Harbaugh comes in and turns a 49ers squad who had Alex Smith at QB, 2 rookies on the OL, lost their all pro nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, had Michael Cra ...
It is time for the good, the bad and the ugly. The good: Aaron Rodgers threw 6 touchdowns to give Green Bay Packers 42-24 win over the Houston Texans. The bad: The New York Giants destroyed the San Francisco 49ers 26-3. Alex Smith is not an elite quarterback. The ugly: Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb of the Baltimore Ravens are out for the season due to injuries. They can kiss their trip to the Super Bowl this year goodbye. Have a great day everybody!
Alex Smith is a negative X-Factor! He needs to call Trent Dilfer and ask him how to win a Super Bowl when ur an average QB with a great Def!
It seems that all you need to compete in the NFL today is a QB with a strong arm and any of the dozens of big-play receivers. The defensive backs simply cannot cover them. It's a passing league and running game and defense just doesn't matter much, as evidenced by the Giants taking advantage of Alex Smith's relatively weak arm and riding Eli's arm today. The 49ers superb run defense did not matter at all. (The Giants winning the Super Bowl last year while finishing dead last in running yards per game proves how secondary running is now. Although offense in general still mightily trumps defense.) There's so so many stud wideouts now: Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Julio Jones, Roddy White, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, even Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley on the Jets outperform the d-backs. There are QBs who through a strong arm alone can keep their teams in games: Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers and Andy Dalton and Matt Ryan and RGIII and Cam Newton (for all their speed, those last two have extremely strong arms) ...
Big Blue wipes floor with 49ers in San Francisco! :) Safety picks Smith twice as Giants dominate NFC bully 49ers in blowout! :) By PAUL SCHWARTZ Last Updated: 8:08 PM, October 14, 2012 Posted: 7:58 PM, October 14, 2012 Giants Blog San Francisco – Well, Tom Coughlin got as much mileage as he possibly could have hoped with his “Nobody expects to win’’ decree heading into yesterday’s game against the 49ers. After what his Giants did in beating up and beating on the bad boys of the conference, Coughlin won’t be able to use that rallying cry any time soon. The Giants said they would know much more about themselves after their trip out west and the lesson they administered was loud and clear. The defending Super Bowl champs are back in business after they stood toe-to-toe with a team that won its last two games by a combined 79-3 and delivered the knockout blows in a thorough 26-3 thrashing of the Niners at Candlestick Park. AP San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith (11) is sacked by New York Gi ...
 border=
17-4 in his last 21 regular season games, 2 game winning drives in an epic post season victory, a muffed punt away from facing Tom The Great in the Super Bowl, outplaying QB's like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and arguably Eli Manning in 4 of his last 7 games, and now leading the 49ers to their franchise best single game offensive output ever... I wonder if people are ready to stop calling Alex Smith a "bust" yet...
Lol got this of a jetsblog and the funny thing is its true. "On the game film from yesterday, the coaching staff is going to see what a legitimate Super Bowl contender looks like. The 49ers are the team Rex Ryan wants. A smash-mouth, versatile running game supported by an efficient quarterback on offense and an elite defense that can get after the quarterback and force turnovers. The New York Jets can’t be them because Muhammad Wilkerson isn’t Justin Smith. David Harris isn’t Patrick Willis. Quinton Coples isn’t Aldon Smith. Bart Scott isn’t NaVorro Bowman. Not even remotely close. Shonn Greene isn’t half the running back Frank Gore is. Dustin Keller is a very poor man’s Vernon Davis. Colin Kapernick is a fast Tim Tebow who can throw the football. And right now, Mark Sanchez isn’t anywhere near the quarterback Alex Smith is and that is saying something because Smith isn’t very good."
A thought...Picture this, The dying moments of the Super Bowl...Fourth and thirteen and the Niners are at the Ravens 35 yard line. Alex Smith throws a bomb intended for Vernon Davis and it turns into a jump ball with Ed Reed , Ray Lewis and Vernon Davis all going after the ball in the end zone sort of like last night...and the Replacement Refs calling it a Touchdown. Scary... Huh? We need with out a shadow of a doubt and even if the regular ones screw up a call or two...we need the regular refs back and back before something like last night happens in the Super Bowl.
Playing Online with the 49ers , dhopdmeat defeated the Ravens 31-3 on All-Pro in Head to Head. The leading passer was Alex Smith with 169 yards, and the leading rusher was Frank Gore with 124 yards.
A 49ers Sports Minute With Lance Buitrago After watching that game last night, i've come to a conclusion. The way the 49ers came out to the game, the energy, the body language, the "swagger", if you will, the 49ers team that I SAW last night, looked so impressive, so solidly sound, and I'm trying to be as unbiased as possible because y'all know I love my 49ers oh so dearly and the stats don't lie, BUT, back to my point, I have them ranked in the Power Rankings, after a big loss that last weeks my New England Patriots, took because they SLEPT, yeah I said SLEPT, on the Arizona Cardinals! I have the 49ers to, and you can put me on the record, quote me, all that, but to WIN the Super Bowl, where they will BEAT The New England Patriots or The Baltimore Ravens. And the road to the Super Bowl will not be an easy one for NFC teams, because they'll have to beat a 49er team, on the road, in The Stick, with THOSE fans? There's just no way, I just don't see that happening. Also, after the way Alex Smith played last ...
“Are you an Alex Smith believer?” Rex Grossman & Trent Dilfer both went to a Super Bowl, so why not?
Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore, and even Alex Smith all have impressed me tonight. Do I smell Super Bowl?
Alex Smith doesn't have to be an "elite" QB for the 49ers to be good enough to win the Super Bowl! Just ask Trent Dilfer!
After week 1 of the NFL season, this is my take...Super Bowl...San Francisco against Baltimore...dark horses are Chicago and Washington in NFC, Denver and Jets in AFC...Rookie of the Year RGIII, MVP is Alex Smith...first coach to be fired will be Pat Shurmar...in my opinion he and Mike Holmgren should both already be gone for annointing a 28 year old rookie as the future and snubbing a 26 year old Colt Mccoy, who is talented and enthusiastic and shows much promise...McCoy has preformed very well in his two years, especially given the limited offensive tools he has to work with...just sayin...
What we learned from NFL week 1: Peyton Manning is not "back," he never left. Jim Harbaugh was dead serious when he said he could and will win with Alex Smith. Reggie Wayne is among the great WRs to play the game and still gets little recognition outside the Indianapolis area. The two teams (Broncos, 49ers) I picked to go to the Super Bowl looked VERY good against good opponents.
My team the 49ers looked awesome yesterday. We kicked the Packers *** in Green Bay. Alex Smith is the real deal... and we have great recievers and balanced offense. And the best defense in the NFL. Patrick Willis to the best middle linebacker in the league. Watch for my 49ers. I can smell Super Bowl.
I'm ready to see the Pack give the Niners a butt kicking on Sunday. Anybody else with me? Mike McCarthy is probably happy now that the Niners drafted Alex Lewis as the overall pick instead of Aaron Rodgers. Afterall. Rodgers has a Super Bowl trophy and a regular season MVP to his name. What has Alex Smith done?
While a lot are excited about the 49ers this season. You still have Alex Smith. Who showed after a timeout he can get a delay of game and then a false start. At least he didnt turn the ball over. But you have oft injured Gore, old *** Moss, and a special teams unit that can cost u a trip to the Super Bowl. Having said that. You got Vernon Davis and Manningham. Who knows about Crabtree. Hunter is a good backup RB and the DEF is lights out quick. In the end they SHOULD win the division. But seldom does that team win the rugged AFC West.
Coming in next at number 4 on my top preseason NFL teams countdown is the: - San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers make my number 4 spot entering this 2012 NFL season mainly due to their defense. In what was the best ranked defense in the league last year, the 49ers, under new Coach Jim Harbaugh, used bruising strength and toughness to an NFC Championship Game berth last year, where, if not for a few turnovers on special teams, very well could have represented the NFC in the Super Bowl. Last year was a special season though for the 49ers, culminating with a playoff shootout win over the New Orleans Saints at home that was one of the more dramatic games of last season. Under first year head Coach Harbaugh, the 49ers were able to dominate on defense and were able to finally utilize top overall pick Alex Smith at quarterback to his full ability. What Harbaugh did to turn around Smith by simply keeping his confidence up saying he was the guy was simply incredible. The entire fiery presence of Harbaugh, most known f ...
The are poised for a Super Bowl run, but Jerry Rice wants them to ‘take the diaper off’ Alex Smith first.
same Alex Smith that was a Kyle Williams fumble from a Super Bowl trip. And Aldon will be ok. He's just being a *** kid
Why will the San Francisco 49ers Will Win the Super Bowl in 2012? It's never too late to project greatness, especially in San Francisco. Especially when the 49ers have been virtually irrelevant for the past decade. They are no longer that "almost-there team," but in fact a team that's ready to go for a legit run and win it all in 2012. In other words: last year was not a fluke. It was a blasting white light at the end of what was a long, ugly, tunnel of Shawshank Redemption-like proportions. Sure, there is really no way of knowing what can and will happen, but there are too many intangible factors to ignore when it comes to the Scarlet and Gold. There are just too many good signs and too many good things going on in San Francisco for next year to be a disappointment. There is an oblong checklist of historical precedents that must be met in order to realistically win a Super Bowl. The 49ers have most of them checked off with only one major area of concern remaining: Alex Smith. Other than that, all star ...
The rest of their noteworthy additions (A.J. Jenkins, Randy Moss, Mario Manningham) are meant to give Alex Smith more help in the passing game. And if even one of those new receivers can catch 50 balls, the Niners very well could make their first Super Bowl appearance in nearly 20 years
After 80 regular-season wins and two Super Bowl titles, Roethlisberger has a point. So do the Steelers, however, as they're primarily concerned with the epic beating Big Ben took last season. His 40 sacks were second only to Alex Smith and Tarvaris Jackson, and he was never the same after suffering an ankle injury against the Cleveland Browns in December.
Well on a serious note.San Francisco 49rs may now be loaded up personnel wise, in really being the NFC contender for the next Super Bowl. They have made some acquisitions in this off season to make them strong & deep for starters & coming off the bench. (Smith a 2005 draft pick, for the 1st time in his professional career, does not need to learn a whole new offensive scheme prior to game day. Jim Harbaugh who I like, and of course former HC Mike Singletary, allows me to now root for a team I've always despised.
On the golf course - saw the Browns - got autographs for my son from Alex Smith, Usama Young, Sheldon Brown, and TJ Ward - thanks gentlemen - you guys are a class act - Super Bowl: here we come !!!
I couldn't believe it when I read today that TO would like to finish his career as a 49er. Uh Terrell... I think your career is already over. Even the Raiders don't seem interested... and Carson Palmer was the last QB who he teamed up with and had a fair amount of success in 2010. Now we seem to have an embarrassment of riches at the wide receiver. But the one guy I think may put us over the top and finally make Alex Smith a Pro Bowl calibre QB is Mario Manningham. He certainly made Eli Manning look good in the Super Bowl. Anyway it's fun to see them all come out of the woodwork again now that our team has gained sudden respectability. Lot's of luck TO... but you are no Jerry Rice. Beyond that... this is from a fairly interesting column that I read today: Some of the post-draft grades were ridiculous. Some gave the Niners a C or C- because they drafted a relatively unknown receiver in the first round and a smallish back out of Oregon in the second. What they don’t realize is that, in assembling the ...
Will Randy Moss achieve his first NFL Super Bowl ring? Will 49ers quarterback Alex Smith have his first 5,000 yard season? Clean cut with a short hairdo and sporting a red jersey (sorry, Josh Morgan) while running routes Thursday, Moss was one of the signature faces for the new-look 49ers after
I hope most watched ESPN E:60 about Aaron Rodgers. This is a great story about him. Now for those who says he's overrated, he fell into a great situation, or he ain't all that should see why he is good the way he is today cuz I have heard some negative things about him. This man got rejected by so many colleges and never gotting a chance until Cal and won Super Bowl and MVP in the NFL! Funny thing is he was a big 49ers fan! Alex Smith was great at Utah but he ain't no Aaron Rodgers! If Rodgers was with the 49ers this past year, 49ers would have won a Super Bowl and probably would have been a dynasty! No one never said he was greater then Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, or a Bret Farve! That will take years for that to happen! This man is 28 years old and still havea long way to go to win and make Pack fans proud and love him even more! Well Thank you 49ers and all other teams who didn't give him a chance and passsed him up! In factPackers still a favorite to win it all in 2013 CUZ OF Aaron Rodgers ...
. *___* 49ers Super Bowl champs wow wit Alex Smith and Michael Crabtree goodluck with that
Michael Crabtree, Alex Smith, Vernon Davis, Brandon Jacobs, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore and Randy Moss will win us the Super Bowl.
