With the preseason right around the corner, here is a breakdown of the NFC West division teams.
San Francisco pretty much wins this by default.
Alex Smith is an average QB, but he’s still superior to Leinart, Hasselbeck and Feeley. Charlie Whitehurst has proven nothing at the NFL level and I would be amazed if a spread QB like Bradford played well in his rookie year.
Smith is less than ideal for the 49ers offense because of his inability to operate from under centre (a problem identified at his drafting) but he is still preferable to Arizona’s duo of Leinart and Anderson.
It may well end up that Anderson gets the starting gig considering an apparent lack of desire (not to mention the arm strength essential to a vertical passing attack) possessed by Leinart. Leinart’s career completion percentage stands at a mere 56% with 14 TDs to 17 INTs.
The Seahawks and Rams have similar problems.
