    Troy Smith, who has yet to take a first-team practice snap with the 49ers, will be the team's starting quarterback Sunday against the Denver Broncos, coach Mike Singletary announced Wednesday morning. Alex Smith is expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks with a left shoulder separation, Singletary said. David Carr has been demoted after struggling against the Carolina Panthers after taking over for Alex Smith. Carr completed 5 of 13 passes for 67 yards and a critical interception in the 49ers' 23-20 loss to the Panthers. "The bottom line is I think for where we are, Troy Smith gives us a good opportunity to win the game," Singletary said. Troy Smith was signed to a one-year contract leading up to the 49ers' first game of the regular season after the Baltimore Ravens released him at the final cutdown date. "Probably the No. 1 thing I like about him is leadership," Singletary said. "The ability to get everybody on the same page."

    with their season lost, this is probably the best thing that could've happened. see what you've got in troy because we know what alex is and carr is nothing. in fact, the niners should probably be playing their back-ups at many positions to see what they've got for the future.

    I liked what I seen out of Troy Smith when he had those few starts with Baltimore. I think he will have a sub-par game but I think he will do enough to start the rest of the season.

    You can give the 49ers the Jets, Patriots, Steelers or Ravens roster and they would still be 1-6 with the garbage coaching. Start at the top, Yorks need to sell the team to an owner who wants to win (I mean really wants to win), get a qualified coaching staff and then perhaps the team will FINALLY head in the right direction.

    Not true, every team in the league has bad coaching somewhere within the staff. Give me Elite Talent over great coaching, you really think Jim Caldwell is responsible for the 14-2 season last year or Peyton Manning? If the 49ers had those rosters you named with the same exact coaching staff I promise you they have more then 1 win.
  12. this has disaster written all over it.

    btw coaching is responsible for wins first and foremost.

    It doesn't matter if you have peyton manning if they cant execute and are poorly coached. Player's can only do so much.

    **********Automerged Doublepost**********

    the York's want to win. They have a great GM they just need a coach.

    Who cares if it has diaster written all over it. What does it matter. They're 1-252758907. Might as well. Plus the pas blocking is awful this guy can run.

    Good for Troy. I'm happy for him. Hopefully he can impress some people and stake his claim to the starting job. He can make plays with his feet, too.

    Yep :icon_cool: Making the most of this years one, without the lockout looming I could see this being the last one for a long time.

    Meh. What does it really matter? 1-6's a likely bid that the season's screwed anyways. :|
