49ers quarterback Alex Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft, is trying to remove the “bust” label that has been figuratively tattooed onto his tookis by most followers of pro football.
So far, it’s not working.
Per Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle, Smith was booed every time he made a mistake during practice on Saturday by the 1,000 or so fans who were in attendance.
And head coach Mike Singletary believe it’s a good thing. A very good thing.
“I think it’s outstanding,” Singletary said after practice, since it gets Smith ready for the potential reception in front of more than 60,000 like-minded Niners fans.
“That’s going to happen, keep moving forward, get better,” Singletary said.
Hey, at least Singletary didn’t advise Smith to drop his pants and moon them.
