    My friend just told me that. He followed up with the comment that Alex Smith is easily a better qb than Romo... just seeing if theres anybody on here that agrees and would like to try to persuade me cus I still Alex Smith dreams about having the capability to play as good as Romo does

    I actually think David Garrard is a better QB than Alex Smith. He's similar in many ways but has a stronger arm.

    105 quarterback ratings don't grow on trees.

    Especially if you're Kyle Orton or David Garrard.

    Would be a good move for some team that's a real stinker and is looking to see if they can squeeze any of that 1st round potential out, but it's about the last hint we need

    Alex Smith is pretty awful.

    Garrard was second in the league in QB rating (>100) just a couple years before his injury. And he had absolutey zero WRs.
    I suspect his lifetime stats are very similar or better than Smith's.

    The guy has a decent Oline, a running game to back him and a shutdown hard nose defense to lean on. When you get a lead and have a D that can hold it and then some, you can run some pretty safe, high percentage plays that puts a bus driving QB like Alex Smith into statistical position of greatness in the eyes of some.

    Which proves that stat is meaningless, because he's not even starting for his own team.

    In 2007. That's five years ago. Garrard hasn't played in nearly two years now.

    Smith has gone 81, 82, 91 and now 104. That's progress, and he's only 27 or 28.

    Yep.
    Just looked it up.

    Career QB ratings:
    Garrard: 85.8
    Smith: 79.1

    And Garrard had to try to carry a team with no WRs while Smith had an all-world defense, oline, run game, and a few ok WRs.
    :D

    I agree.

    My point was more that they are both bus drivers and of the two I thought Garrard was better when he was Healthy.
    I honestly think if Smith played for the Cowboys, he would have a QB rating in the 70s or 80s at best.

    I know Romo is in the mid 80s this year but that is a fluke compared to the rest of his career. He's bascially a low to mid 90s guy even when he has to carry the offense--which is far more difficult than driving the bus.

    Smith has played well this year though.
