Re: Alex Smith, #11

Re: Alex Smith, #11 

Everybody keeps saying Weeden fits the offense Chud and Norv will run and Smith doesn't because Weeds has a strong arm.

Well, last year he completed only 20% of passes thrown 21 yards or more downfield. He has not been accurate on the deep throws. It doesn't matter how far you can throw it if it's off target.

I don't expect the Browns to trade for Smith but he's due a $1 million roster bonus next month and a $7 million salary this year. Will the Niners spend $8 million on their backup QB? Not likely. If they release him it will be interesting to see how hard the Browns pursue him. Just in terms of his experience and superior athleticism he would be an upgrade over Weeden. I'll be surprised if they don't go after him since they've announced they will bring in competition for the starting job. Who else is out there? Matt Flynn?
