Because he has a top 5 OL, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis and Crabtree.
Oh and there's the small fact that he wrecked his team first 5 years of his career way Suckchise did for us this season.
No he did not, both his 2nd year and 4th year were better than marks best years and he had crap to work with. Remember Singletary sending Davis to the locker room. He also had 4 diff OC before Harbough. He was a disapointment to be sure. but nothing like Mark this year. Mark has twice as many int and fumbles than he has TDs. I don't think any qb has ever had such a poor season.
Smith got a lot of crap because he was the #1 pick in the draft.
Bray- less mobile than the other two, but 6-6 with a cannon arm, has some maturity concerns. Needs to be developed by an excellent OC for a year before being thrown in ideally (Norv Turner anyone?)
Nassib- 6-3, most mobile, plays in a worse division, probably needs more work tthan Bray IMHO
Wilson- decision making is meh, powerful arm, accuracy is an issue, medium mobility; shows nice upside, Petrino issue messed him up this season
Bray in the third would be my cup of tea, but I can understand people pulling for the others.
I am with you on Bray, or at least I lean that way. Ultimately, he's probably got,the best NFL skill set of this years QB class, but whether he can put it together is a different story. He made great strides with his accuarcy before getting dinged up this year, and played in a Pro Style offense. He would definitely need seasoning for a year at least though.
