Alex Smith is like that classic “just good enough” girlfriend. He’s an athletic, intelligent, hard-working quarterback that will “manage” teams successfully into winning in the neighborhood of 10 games every year. But he’s never going to be the “elite bombshell” that everyone is going to notice and remember.
Smith has had a winning record as the starting quarterback of his team ever year since 2011, but after leading both the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs to the playoffs in five combined seasons, he has a 2-5 record in the postseason. In typical Alex Smith fashion, he’s thrown only two interceptions in those seven games, but averaged less than seven yards per attempt.
