Alright, so we got Alex Smith. We all thought we were going to do great before the start of the season last year (or at least I did). But Matt Cassel didn't play very well, and we had a pretty disappointing season. Now, we have a quarterback just as good, or better, than Matt Cassel ever was. So I mean, our QB may be better now, and we can compete for the playoffs! Remember when we went 10-6! That can happen again easily! Sure, we're not perfect, but we're much better. And that's a start right there.
