Is Smith Still The Answer In San Fran?
The mere look at this article’s title may make you cringe. You may be thinking, “No, not another year!” or “I’d rather be a Cleveland Browns fan!”. I understand your frustration. Year after year, the former first draft pick does a fantastic job at consistently underperforming and losing games. But with the current realities the Niners are facing, it may make sense to just keep him at starting quarterback for the short-term.
So let’s take a look at Three Reasons Why Alex Smith as Starting QB Make Sense for Next Season:
1. New Head Coach: In his first year at the helm, Jim Harbaugh will be faced with a number of challenges.

2. No QBs in the Market: This year’s QB market is not enticing enough for the Niners to take a chance on someone new. Carson Palmer’s name has been thrown around, but at this later point in his career, for him to come in and learn a new offense, how productive can he really be and for how long?
