Former 49ers quarterback is confused by the Niners coaching changes

New England Patriots v Kanas City ChiefsAlex Smith was once a first round pick for the San Francisco 49ers, he was the supposed to be the face of the franchise but that quickly changed after the team drafted Colin Kaepernick. Well when the current Chiefs QB was asked about the Niners regime making coaching changes, he was shocked.

“I think for me, it’s still just tough to believe all those guys are gone, all that turnover,” Smith said, via the San Jose Mercury News. “… There were a lot of ballgames that got won over the last few years, but for whatever reason, they couldn’t make it work. I don’t know. I wish coach Tomsula well. I wish him the best.”

As the starting quarterback in interim coach Tomsula’s 38-7 victory to close out the 2010 season, Smith is in a unique position to evaluate the 49ers’ new headman.

“I loved what he brought to the team that week,” Smith said. “I know he has the ability to be a head coach. He’s a good man, a really good coach. I’m pulling for him.”

I think many of the Niners fans are just like Alex Smith, but hopefully this move works best for everyone, because if it doesn’t it could result in the biggest mistake in NFL History.
