    Just like every other good quarterback in the league.

    Why Alex Smith? I can see the Flacco argument even though I think Romo is a better QB than him as well but what do you see in Alex Smith that makes you think he is better than Romo on any level? Draft status?

    He plays within his skills and doesn't turn the ball over much. I like that about him. Also being mobile is a plus. Smith is underrated.

    That strike to Harris was surgical.

    Romo, other than last year, doesn't turn the ball over much. Even with Smith, his turnovers are par with anyone else if you look at it in relation to the rest of his stats. His turnovers are typically low because he didn't throw the ball much, with few yards and TDs.

    You seriously said you prefer Alex Smith to Tony Romo?!?!! That's amazing.

    And Alex Smith is underrated, I'd agree. But that's still a collossally bad take on those two QBs.

    First of all we are 12-11 against the Rams so it's not 'just the Rams'. In the Romo era we are 3-2 with 34-7 and 20-10 losses. So you are incorrect in saying it's just the Rams. We are 2-2 against them all time in the playoffs BTW. They beat AZ by 3 and lost to a good ATL team by 7 prior to our game and still average about 20 ppg. And yes ATL is 1-2 but still a very good team.

    I've been pretty please with Romo over all for the first three games. He's made a couple of mistakes but he's played overall extremely well and I've been very pleased by it.

    Romo played terribly at the end of the Chiefs game. Many said it was the ribs and it should be apparent from yesterday's game that was the issue.

    I said it previously, i could careless about stats especially QB rating. I still think Romo is nothing special. I like the way he played yesterday though. He didn't audible nearly as much as the first two games, and didn't pass the ball 50 times. I'm not sure if those things are correlated, but without the audibles the offense seemed to run more fluently. I still dont think its a good idea to give him control of the offence like Peyton though.

    I completely agree that Romo has been very efficient thus far and hope he'll continue that trend rest of the season.

    Romo >>>>> Alex Smith

    Alex Smith, to me, is nothing more than a bus driver.

    Ray Rice providing a solid running game helped him out, along with an OL that played extremely well. Heck, even the defense played better than must expected. And it still took a gift from the Denver safety for them to win that game. Same situation, Denver wins that game at least 8/10 times.

    And I said the same thing about Flacco a while back and a few here thought I was crazy until he put up Montana numbers in the playoffs/superbowl. Again, Alex Smith plays within himself, doesn't turn the ball over much, and is mobile. He is highly under rated but not for long.

    I agree about it being a somewhat lucky win against Denver.. and yeah, we can say he had a wonderful running back and Oline.. but at the end of the day, nobody can deny how well Flacco played. Again, he put up Montanta stats in that playoff run.

    I agree he played very well during that run, but based on his regular season stats, I wouldn't expect to see him do it again.

    This year, the Ravens offense through 3 games looks pedestrian at best, and I'm sure the 100 million dollar man has A LOT to do with it.

    At halftime yesterday, the were winning with a QB who went 7/12 for 53 yards. Luckily for them, the Texans committed 14 penalties and gave up TDs on special teams and a pick 6.

    They might be playing in the 2nd worst division in football (Pit, Cle), right behind the NFCE.

    Lol. Flacco is a very different argument. And, again, Alex Smith does play within himself, doesn't turn the ball over much, and he can run it some for you (he can't throw downfield on the run much at all, and that's a lot more important when it comes to 'mobility.') All that said, he's not in Tony Romo's category as a QB, and it's not even close, and that's going to be the case for his entire career.

    Come on people. You guys are now going to jump on here and say "I told you so!", when for the last 3 years, the majority of people who have had issue with Romo and this offense have done so, because they felt as if there was no balance to the offense and Romo was trying to do too much? Really?

    If anything, Sunday's game should serve as confirmation that what many were saying is accurate.

    If we are going to have an honest discussion, you must at the very least, be genuine in the facts.

    Agreed. How do you beat Alex Smith? Make him play catch up, cause he can't. Then you'll expose all of his weaknesses. His NFC playoff game against the Giants a couple of seasons ago was comical. He couldn't complete a pass to save his life.

    Right now Alex Smith is sitting comfortably. His game against the Eagles was a snoozer. All hail the "Check Down" king.

    He hasnt tried to do too much, he has been forced to do so. Lack of an oline, running game, piss poor defense, you name it.
