Alex Smith was better than half the QBs in the league last year. You may be right that he's mediocre, but the reality is, that is still good enough to be one of the better QBs in the league right now. There's just not a lot of good ones, and even fewer good ones available.
All that being said, if you give up Revis, you've got to get "future hall of famer" caliber in return, or at least the types of draft picks you could use to draft that guy. This deal doesn't deliver that. Late #1's, meh.
