Think about this.
The 49'ers seemingly enter the "Manning Contest" late, possibly hoping to either get Manning, or scaring Alex Smith to signing a contract (Which he probably should have signed, but he's doing what he thinks is best I guess, as well he should.)
Smith now goes to Check out Miami. To show he's not to be toyed with? Possibly as a real possibility.
Manning goes to Denver.
- hypothetical: Smith signs with the Dolphins. 49'ers have no legitimate starting qb.
at least until the draft.
I always thought Smith was good, regardless of how he's been tossed around. how great would the above scenario be. ( for the west).
