Jim Harbaugh came out today and just flat out lied, saying that the 49ers had Alex Smith in their plans all along. He claimed that they were never really trying to replace him with Peyton Manning, just exploring their options.

Hm. I can’t say I believe any of that. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I’m 100 percent sure that every bit of what Jim Harbaugh said on this situation is a lie. How stupid does he think we all are?

Yeah Jim. You secretly brought in Manning for a workout, then apparently were heartbroken when Manning PERSONALLY called you to tell you that he was signing with the Broncos. But no, no, you’re right, you didn’t want anything to do with the best quarterbacks ever. After all, you’ve got Alex Smith.

You know how I know you’re lying, outside of all the obvious evidence? Because your quarterback is Alex Smith. I just spent the past 10 minutes on YouTube looking up Alex Smith sucks videos, and I found about 50. Yet, I settled on this one, because I think it kind of disproves you’re whole “We love Alex Smith! We’ve always wanted him to our quarterback!” notion. Only two years ago, fans were chanting for DAVID CARR.

That’s right. Your knowledgeable, intelligent (I’m being serious here, not facetious)  fans wanted to bench the guy you claim is a franchise quarterback for DAVID CARR. Am I not being clear enough? DAVID CARR!

So stop insulting our intelligence by pretending that you wanted Smith all along. You didn’t. You wanted Manning, and that’s okay. Manning is better, and Smith was in a quarterback battle with David Carr only two years. We don’t blame you one bit for pursuing Manning. But nobody is stupid enough to believe that you were just “putting your feelers out there.”

You’re better than that Jim.
