The 49ers have decided to switch QB’s again, as the team is going back to former #1 overall pick Alex Smith as the teams starting QB.
Sunday in the teams 34-16 loss to the Packers on the road, Troy Smith had a rough day, going 10-for-25 for 194 yards with one TD and one pick and a QB rating of 64.4.
Smith completed just 52.4 percent of his passes for 1,023 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions in five games. Alex Smith in 7 games has a QB rating of 75.0, and has thrown for 9 TD’s and 9 picks.
The Niners take on the Seahawks this week, and while the team is 4-8, two games back of the first place Rams and Hawks, if they are going to make a last ditch effort for the NFC West, it has to start with Smith under center this week.
