Alex Smith: Attitude is EverythingMarch 21, 2012


Alex Smith’s feelings are hurt. The 49ers made a hard push for Peyton Manning in free agency and now Smith knows he’s nothing more than a conciliation prize since Manning has signed with Denver. On the surface, it might be easy to understand why Smith’s ego is bruised, but once you dig deeper it’s a bit harder to understand.

Does Alex Smith truly believe he’s better than Peyton Manning? If so, God bless his heart. Professional athletes have to have the delusional confidence of a backwoods country teenager high off of meth.

Professional football is for…well, professionals and not amateurs. Alex Smith has been a professional since 2003, and did not handle this situation like a professional. The minute the 49ers started showing interest in Peyton Manning, Smith started to take free agent visits to other teams. There was no rush for Smith to start visiting other teams and it also made no sense. Where was he going to go? Miami? The same Alex Smith that took a pay cut to stay in San Francisco last season and proved himself to be a good quarterback was not the same quarterback visiting other teams once Peyton Manning was on the 49ers’ radar. Smith must have forgotten that 49ers head coach, Jim Harbaugh was the only person that believed in him. If Harbaugh didn’t want him Smith would be out of the NFL right now. Smith is in the position he is in now because of Harbaugh.

Alex Smith has come to his senses and re-signed with the 49ers today. He has to realize this is professional football not Pee-Wee and that Peyton Manning is better than him plain and simple. It’s not like the 49ers were going after David Garrard or Tavaris Jackson, it was Peyton freaking Manning and it was a no brainer for the 49ers to do so. Now, Smith has to make sure his attitude is right. If another team was offering the same money that the 49ers were offering he would have left faster than Lebron James because he didn’t feel wanted in San Fran. The main reason he re-signed with the 49ers is because he didn’t really have anywhere else to go. If his emotions get the best of him, he’s going to revert to the Alex Smith of old – interceptions, sacks, losses, exceptional ineptness…remember that guy? If he’s professional and just sucks it up, he’ll be a winner again and possibly in Super Bowl XLVII. Alex Smith’s attitude is directly related to the amount of success he will have this upcoming season.

Never let ‘em see you sweat Alex.

That’s all I got,
