    Fantasy sports has destroyed the younger generations of fans, and it's become contagious with the older generations.
    Who the hell said anything about Canton?

    The Niners already know what they have in Smith.

    They decided to ditch an average, middle of the road QB for a kid with the potential to be something more than that.

    What's so hard to understand?

    Instead of treading water, they want to take the next step.

    I can only hope that we do the same.

    And you seem to ignore the fact that his head coach, one who is widely regarded as a pretty good coach, made the decision to start the young guy. He "bailed" on Smith... and he didn't do it because the fans were ready to latch on to the next guy.

    Maybe Harbaugh has seen Kaepernick in practice against that SF defense and knows the guy has something special. Maybe, just maybe, he's actually better than Smith.

    full disclosure: I'd love to have Smith. He's better than Sanchez. If Kaepernick keeps playing like he has, Smith will be traded this season. And, as always, the Jets most likely will be linked to him in he media.
    If Smith is available this offseason, the Jets have to get him plain and simple. Trade a 2nd rounder. He is exactly the type of player Rex would want to run his offense. He doesn't turn it over, he manages a game, he has good accuracy and makes smart decisions with the ball. Let's see what Smith could do with Rex's D. At worst, he can be a stopgap until we get our QB of the future. At best, he can be a good player for us for the next few years as we try to make playoff runs.

    I think the myth of "Rex's D" can be safely put to rest

    Implying Rex is the coach next season.

    The problem is Rex's D isn't what it used to be. Defense is giving up an avg of 26 PPG...granted some of that has to do with the QB turning the ball over, but still. We can't afford to have a game manager at QB anymore.

    Trade a 2nd rd pick who was considered a huge bust prior the harbaugh put a system and upgrade the talent around him?

    The hate towards Sanchez is blinding you there the same damn player.. Smith comes here he will be back to same old bust self..

    Niners went through with smith what we are going through with Sanchez.. He had a huge contract they couldn't get rid of him till last offseason when the deal ran out..in the same offseason they tried everything in there power to get a better player at the position only to get burn and have to resign him by default..

    Smith has the fewest turnovers for a QB since the beginning of last season. Sanchez conversely probably has the most during that span. The same player? Is this post serious?

    Smith's 103 passer rating this season sure looks the "same" as Sanchez's 75

    NO WAY. He's not that good. And he'd get eaten alive in NY.

    Rodney Harrison said today that it's easy to prepare for and defend against a guy like Smith because he's very one-dimensional. You basically know what he's going to do and is capable of doing on every play.

    He said Kaepernick is a lot tougher to prepare for because he can do so many different things.

    yet he is on bench right.. Just further proof niners don't want him..

    Watch him spare me on inflated stats which are more a product of the system..

    It is also telling on how long he sat in FA before SF had to sign him back. Seriously the team that knew him best and needed a QB didn't want him. Then he didn't even get average starter money when he did resign.

    If Sanchez had Jim Harbaugh as his HC and Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter at the skill positions, he might actually put up some big numbers too.

    This drives me crazy!! Money should have nothing to do with who starts. Sanchez should be cut now!! The owner and GM paid him this money so they should have to eat it. Fans should not be subjected to this garbage.

    Get real, the difference between Smith and Sanchez is night and day. People still view Alex Smith threw the lenses of 2007, he almost single-handedly took the niners to the Superbowl last year.

    Would love to have Alex Smith on this team come next year.

    Sanchez has had good WRs in the past, he never did. His 2010 season was the closest to a Smith season because he avoided turnovers and didn't throw for many yards, but his completion percentage was still miserable. There is no situation known to man under which Sanchez could produce over 100 passer rating for a season. Give him Rice, Fitzgerald, Irvin, Gonzalez, etc. and he'd still miss throws and make bad decisions.

    Smith sucks.

    My God......hi I'm reality:

    last crappy QB to win a Super Bowl did it 10 years ago during the best season of his career and was a Pro Bowler.

    The last truly crappy QB to win a Super Bowl was 12 years ago with a defense that was arguably the best of all time with a devastating, punishing running back.

    Alex Smith, like Sanchez, at the cost of anything beyond a salary is a waste of whatever you trade to get him to manage your games.

    Sanchez will start next year, this team will stink again, then look at 2013 to either get Clowney or Manziel.

    The best move any GM could make would be to sign absolutely nobody of note, let the cap situation open up, then make big moves in 2013 via Free Agency and the draft, then give a young QB time to develop..........LIKE THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE WITH BUTT-CHEZ.

    Just for the record: I'd rather have Butt-chez that Smith. Smith is HORRENDOUS.

    Your comparing Smith in his 7th year to Sanchez still in his 4th.. Smith turned the ball over in his early years and only has 2 16 game seasons in his career..Plus Smith is on a much better team.. The fair statement is they both sucked in their first 4 years..
