We think Alex Smith said it perfectly. When you lose your job, doing your job doesn’t inspire hope. There are no words of comfort. Smith completed 7 of 8 passes in his last game and maybe if he only didn’t miss that one.
"I knew based off of the last couple weeks, the way things had gone, didn't know what was going to happen but I knew it was a possibility." Smith said according to csnbaynation.com.
Smith continued: “I don't think talk is the place to do it. You state your case with your play, and I felt I did that. I feel like the only thing I did to lose my job was get a concussion."
With that, opens a different conversation about not telling the trainers the truth:
“Ultimately, the doctors and me had to make that decision. I think it's a good thing that more and more is coming out about it (concussions). I don't think that's a bad thing." And if he had any regrets… "No, I'm not looking back on that -- no, no."
