O’Sullivan: Alex Smith’s comeback isn’t surprising

Former 49ers QB joins the Gold Standard podcast

In this week’s episode of the Gold Standard podcast, Levin Black and I talked with former 49ers QB JT O’Sullivan about his new website, Jimmy Garoppolo’s ceiling, and what it was like playing with Alex Smith and Frank Gore in 2008.

When the subject of Alex Smith came up, O’Sullivan said his comeback from a gruesome leg injury wasn’t shocking.

“I’m not shocked at all. Alex, when I was there, was probably the best athlete in the building. [In the] offseason with Alex, he won damn near every race, he competed in every single thing that we did, he was the number one overall pick for a reason...He’s an athletic freak. A 6’4 gazelle.”
