I don't emm think Alex Smith is that good. He's better than people make him out to be but dude ain't that good.
In the predictions thread I said Alex Smith would outplay Andrew Luck in 2014 statically and people thought I was crazy. I knew before I typed it they put up similar numbers in 2013 but I just wanted to see want the reaction would be and low behold it was what I expected. If Alex Smith didn't sit out that last game of the season he would have been statiscally superior to Andrew Luck in every way except maybe passing yards in 2013.
My point was if Andrew Luck is already a top 5 quarterback which is what A ton people on NT and in the NFL media shove down our throat, he should be killing somebody like Alex Smith's numbers.
But he didn't.
That's all I'm trying say to say, can we let Andrew Luck complete 65% of his passes before he's top 5 quarterback?
Or do we have to anoint him so damn early into his career?
