I'm not sure I get your point and/or question.
ummmm HUH? The 49ers have never said they were going to cut Smith. Why would they have cut him? He'd be a good backup who is not tremendously overpaid and good insurance for a running qb like Kaepernick who could get injured on any play he takes off on. The only reason they traded him is because there were multiple teams after him such as the chiefs, jags, and cardinals and they were able to turn him into a 2nd rounder plus change. Carr was a terrible qb who had worn out his welcome in Houston, was overpaid, and had minimal trade value even before Schaub came on board. Alex Smith does not equal David Carr.
