    23.7 PPG with Smith starting.
    26.4 PPG with Kaepernick starting.

    A 2.7 PPG differential is a big deal.

    Also, Smith loaded up on the Jets and Bills, scoring 79 of his 213 points in two games. When Smith wasn't playing the Jets and Bills, he averaged 19.1 PPG even with the best defense in the league.

    I like Smith and I feel bad for him this season, but Kaepernick is far better than him. It isn't even close IMO.

    Smith's best days are behind him, unfortunately. I hope he winds up with the Chiefs because I think they'd be the best situation for him of the teams in need of a QB.

    Huh? Bud I already said he isn't accurate. At least not consistently enough. I'm not sticking up for him but I'm also not having selective retention based on the fact he wasn't given anything to work with.

    He **** the bed. Make no mistake. Palmer helped.

    You do know that there are three types of lies right? Lies, damn lies, and statistics.

    If you watched any Titans games this year, to say that our OLine was better than anything is laughable.

    Are you calling yourself racist? Or yelling at yourself?

    Pistol offense? It's a formation. One that helps qbs with footwork problems and getting the ball from under center. It's gun with a run threat. Very not fad because just the basic formation lets the QB get a quicker set up and still gets the RB his movement going into the hand off..

    Take away the QB option all you want, pistol is a useable formation in the nfl.

    you ever think the receivers drop so many passes because Locker throws them in such terrible spots?

    Think some of it is placement and some of it is speed. He's gotta work on short to intermediate touch

    Yeah he's been working on that for 7-8 years. He's ALMOST got it. It's only fair to give him 2-3 more years before judging him.

    We will see!! CK has no touch on the ball!!! He looks great now? But NFL D's will get him next year! Unless he gets a good touch pass. Jake needs work on that to, but has a better feel for the ball now, that CK. Next year will be a big year for both. Me I LIKE JAKE!!!!

    I watched enough games this season to know that the passes were good enough to catch...Hell, when I was in high school, if the ball hit your hands you better catch it...These guys make millions to catch footballs and they still can't do it even when the ball hits their hands..

    Dude everyone here knows he gets one more year. Chill. He pisses himself this next season and he's done.
