    Their is a lot of pressure now for playors to dominate as rookies. People called Mario Williams a bust because he didn't have a great rookie year

However Trent Green shows that a player may never be the player a team Drafted them to be immedietly, but that doesn't mean they will be a bust either. Only time will tell.

    Alex Smith is horrible btw.
    He's really young. If he hasn't improved by 2009, I'm calling him a bust

    Don't label him a bust yet he was drafted at age 21. I also doubt (even though i'm a big fan) that 25 year old Colt Brennan would be the answer.

    That's a really good point.

    I think he is only 23 years old or so. Think about it. Most NFL QBs don't mature until they are 26-28. He has some time before we label him a bust, but it isn't looking to good right now.

    He really regressed this season after improving last year.

    started a topic Alex Smith is a bust

    Alex Smith is a bust

    49ers need to draft a QB. I am done defending Alex Smith he is just flat out horrible, and pathetic. I know the o-line is not that good, and the WR drop passes, but he can't make the throws period. I thought he was supposed to have great accuary he is so horrible over throwing recievers. His comp % is 49, that is so sad. The niners have dissapointed me big time, I didn't expect too much but not 2-6.

    I bought into Mike Nolans plan but he clearly was not ready to be a head coach. I think the niners need to hire somebody else to get this team on track. I also think the niners screwed themselves because they traded their pick to NE, but we need to get a qb.

    COLT BRENNAN to SF!!!!!
Working...
