Well, one might argue this is the early season last stand for Alex Smith. He could certainly end up starting later in the season, but he'll need a very solid performance tonight against the Raiders to stay in this early QB competition. A great performance keeps him alive, while a poor performance could be enough to have Shaun Hill named starting QB before next Friday's game at Dallas.
