Somehow Matt Flynn, a backup QB in Green Bay, can play a meaningless game and draw more interest than Alex Smith, the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.
While Flynn is getting attention, Robert Griffin III is pushing Andrew Luck for the top quarterback spot in the upcoming college draft. Now, if you’re talking serious QB talk, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees come to mind.
However, this is the story of Alex Smith, the former number one overall pick in the 2005 draft, 24 picks ahead of Aaron Rodgers.
While Rodgers would ascend to stardom, Smith began a journey of mediocrity. Sometimes, though it’s not all his fault, 5 coordinators in 5 years doesn’t help any quarterback's growth.
