Good for Alex Smith. He had a great career in the NFL, fought his way back from a horrific leg injury, returned to the field and is now headed to TV.
The man knows football, he’s been successful at football and I have no doubt he’ll be great on television.

Ever since Tony Romo blew up on CBS, networks have been pushing things in overdrive to find former QBs who can talk about the NFL.
Fans seem to love it, and Smith is just the latest person to get in on the trend.

We’ll have to wait and see how he does, but I’m confident he shouldn’t have any problems.
