Subject: Re: Halftime, KC 21 TN 3. Another Ex-49er leading the way.
I think you are being slightly, though not entirely, unfair
to Smith. Yes he played lousy under Nolan and Singletary
but that was their fault as well as his. They were not good
coaches and were *really* bad offensive coaches. When
he finally got good coaching under Harbs his play improved,
but still clearly not "elite" level.
Also I don't think he "chokes" but is just inconsistent. He
has games like this where he gives his team a big lead
and then fritters it away, and others where he plays poorly
and then comes back later. He actually has more 4th quarter
comebacks than Rodgers in about as many games even though
he is nowhere near as good. Probably because he gives himself
a lot more chances by playing badly in the first 3 quarters ...

Here's the thing. You can say Smith got Nolan and Singletary fired.
Is Andy Reid going to take a chance keeping Smith for another year that
he's under contract?
Though he may not be able to prep Mahomes to start by next year.
