Smith Unlikely to be Back in 09

Scot McCloughan is on record as saying that if Alex Smith hasn’t taken over the starting role by the end of the season, he will not be back in 2009. Scot was asked if they would bring Smith back if he wasn’t the starter.

“You can’t. The amount of money we’re going to invest in him, he’d have to be proven that he’s the guy. When we get to the offseason, he’d have to be the guy for next year.”

Where’s Doc Brown and the DeLorean when you need it.
