The nearly perfect description of Alex Smith

I don’t know how many of you eat tofu, or at least have tried it. I’m not a big fan generally, but I think it has been more about how it has been prepared. In the right dish, tofu can actually be a great meat substitute. In a dish that’s not so good, it can be atrocious.

Which brings me to Alex Smith. I realize he’s long gone from the Bay Area, but I came across something that piqued my interest.

Long time Washington, D.C. sports writer and blogger Dan Steinberg offered up a comparison of Smith to tofu — and I think I’m digging it.

On an unrelated side note, I’ve eaten the core of an apple before, and I generally have not had a problem with it. It’s not my first choice, but if I don’t have a trash around, I‘m eating the whole apple.

But back to Smith. The tofu comparison is a good one. With the right kind of system, coach, and weapons, Alex Smith can be a really good quarterback. He’s talented regardless, but in a shaky system where his weapons are less than stellar, things can go south in a hurry.
