Like you guys, I've watched 7 years of Alex, and he's made plenty of stupid mistakes during that time.
A co-worker of mine made a similar point, but my response to the idea that I expect Kaep to make more mistakes is that that doesn't excuse him. This team is good enough to win NOW. If I thought we had no shot with anyone else, then sure, let the kid play and the mistakes are growing pains, but this team doesn't suck and mistakes could kill us, especially come playoff time. Of course Smith made mistakes, but if he makes fewer, he might be the better choice. Remember how we would have been in the Super Bowl except for a kid making mistakes?
