Default Re: 49ers Trade Alex Smith

Paying that for a guy that's been in the league as long as Alex Smith, has been labeled a bust like Smith, and is as old as Smith, is excessive, IMO.

If you knew this was what you'd get out of Schaub back in '07, you wouldn't make that trade.
It's not two second rounders. It's a 2013 second and a 2014 conditional mid-round pick. I agree that it is an overpay. But Smith has been really good the past two years and is still just 28 years old. Also, two second rounders for a qb who gives you several productive years with qb ratings of 87, 92.7, 98.6, 92, 96.8, and 90.7 is a trade I think many gm's would not take back. Schaub has been a good quarterback. People just love to **** all over the guy because he's not as good after the lisfranc injury.
