ESPN uses bizarre Alex Smith graphic to show his time with 49ers

New, comments

I am not entirely sure what just happened in the Chiefs-Texans game. The Chiefs are rolling, which means it is time for ESPN to go the obligatory Alex Smith leaving the 49ers story. We're a few years removed from it, but it is still worth a note. Jon Gruden seemed to be ignoring the stronger parts of the Colin Kaepernick era in his discussion, but what are you gonna do?

Where it really got weird though was the pre-packaged video to discuss Alex Smith. They had a Smith animation in his 49ers uniform, standing in the back of a 49ers colored truck. I supposed if there had been an ESPN sponsored brand truck involved I could get it. But in this case, it was just a random truck. I'm baffled.
