FanPost

Hello AP from your newest fan

Good Morning AP (it’s still morning here in NorCal). First time poster. I’ve been lurking on Niners Nation for a couple of years (and AP for the last month), but never joined SB and posted until now. The Chiefs are my new crush. liberty_JAC said about all there is to say about Alex Smith and why you will have some new fans. So here I am. I might have done it in less than 4000 words, though.

It’s been so interesting to learn about your team. An outsider just doesn’t understand the nuances of the players and their strengths, weaknesses, and chemistry. The talent that you have just doesn’t add up to 2-14. It reminds me so much of the Niners before Harbaugh, all disarray and baffling underachievement. I see the same kind of turn around for you with new staff and aggressive changes in scheme and am looking forward to seeing as many games as I can. At least twice as you play our local misfits, the Raiders. We’ll always have hatred for them in common. Oh and who’s sick of Peyton Manning too?

I get the quarterback thing, your bipolar take on Alex Smith makes me feel right at home. A comment on why the Alex love. Most achieving folks in the world can be divided into the savants vs. the grinders. Alex is the king of the grinders. Hard work, decency, dedication, and persistence. Knock him down (yes he takes too many friggin’ sacks) and he gets up and keeps on going. Not everyone can have crazy freakish talent like Kaepernick, so we cannot relate. We all can take heart that we can be grinders and succeed.

So I’ll be lurking and maybe posting and wish you absolutely the best for the coming season.

Got no idea about formatting, etc. on this site (old enough to be social media Luddite) so apologies ahead of time for any lameness.
