Makes sense, actually.  Different GM and coaching staff from his previous tenure.  Immediately gives them a solid veteran, credibility, and will come cheaper than Kirk Cousins.  And he's better.

Not gonna happen, but as a Niners fan (wow, now that's embarrassing to admit), I would definitely be cool with that. And I was one of those who thought Smith sucked when he was on the Niners and wasn't sad to see him go. In retrospect, of course, I was a farking idiot.

Alex Smith possibly having a good year this year is going to be the worst thing to ever happen to Kirk Cousins' bank account.

I feel like I read this exact same article right after the draft.

/pre-Harbaugh 49ers did Smith dirty

wat

ya'll have 5 super bowl trophies and have had more playoff success than the Cowboys over the last 25 years

you're right about Alex Smith though, I still feel like you'd have 6 trophies if Smith had been the starter, the read option got completely shut down in the super bowl

Jared Goff having a good year and Cousins not having one are also gonna help.

While it certainly won't help, it is nothing like an injury or bad play (probably coming from Snyder-type coaching).  There's always more than one team willing to pay for an adquate QB

Why don't they just sign Kaepernick? I've been assured by a lot of people that he's an elite QB and deserves a job.

 yes we should. CK should have played the couple games while AS recovered and that was it.

Someone is still going to pay him way too much money to appease their idiotic fan base.

I can't believe Washington actually stupided themselves into the correct outcome WRT Cousins. Blind squirrel, I guess...

Smith is what he always was, a solid quarterback. Nothing more or less. Put a good team around him and he will look good, put crap around him and he will look terrible. He will have a great game here or there but he isn't taking the current 49ers anywhere.
