Incase you missed it yesterday, Alex Smith told reporters that he doesn’t care about stats. He compared 300 yard games to wins and singled out Panthers quarterback Cam Newton
I could absolutely care less on yards per game,’ Smith said. ‘I think that is a totally overblown stat because if you’re losing games in the second half, guess what, you’re like the Carolina Panthers and you’re going no-huddle the entire second half. Yeah, Cam Newton threw for a lot of 300-yard games. That’s great. You’re not winning, though.’
That comment didn’t take long to reach Carolina and Panthers linebacker Jon Beason went to twitter to let Alex Smith know his thoughts.
Alex smith, don’t hate on Cam Bc your stats would’ve gotten u cut if Peyton decided to come 2 San Fran.Truth b told..That’s after a 13-3 yr.
