Alex Smith has no vision or talent. He has no ability to improvise when plays break up. He has no accuracy. 2005 season Dealing with an injury and being taken in and out of the lineup by then-head coach Mike Nolan, Smith played in nine games in his rookie season, recording just one touchdown pass, against the Houston Texans, while throwing 11 interceptions. 2006 season He threw for 16 TDs, 16 interceptions, 2,890 yards and a 74.8 quarterback rating, all improvements over his rookie year (at least...) 2007 season Among all NFL quarterbacks who qualify for league statistics, only the Jets' Kellen Clemens had a poorer passer rating than Smith (57.2), Smith completed under 50% of his passes, far below the league average of 60%. 2008 season On August 22, 49ers head coach Mike Nolan announced that O'Sullivan, who had competed with Smith and Hill, would replace Smith as the 49ers' first-string quarterback for Week 1 of the 2008 season. This decision led former NFL coach Jim Mora to call Smith a "bust," an opinion seemingly shared by the large majority of 49ers fans, and argue that the 49ers should not have drafted him as the first overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft 2009 season After restructuring his contract with San Francisco, Smith lost the battle for the starting quarterback position to Shaun Hill. However, in a Week 7 game against the Houston Texans, Smith replaced him in the third quarter, after Hill had performed poorly in a 21-0 first half deficit. Smith led the team back with three touchdown passes, all to TE Vernon Davis, but fell short of victory, 24-21. 2010 season Sep. 12 @ Seattle: Stunning loss for the 49ers.The 25-point loss was the worst since losing to the Falcons 45-10 on Oct. 11 '09. Is this a fluke or an indication of another horrible season? For these reasons, we request, that head coach, Mike Singletary, release Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers immediately. This petition will be sent to the 49ers, attention to Mike Singletary, September 30th, 2010. If you support the benching of Alex Smith please sign this petition and share.
