Roddy White Rips Alex Smith

A player from another team doesn't rip an organization's personnel decisions. They keep to themselves (not literally) and often wonder about management making their team better.

So why did Atlanta Falcons wideout Roddy White take it upon himself to rip San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. I guess that's something we'll never know. White decided that he should be involved in the discussion of keeping Alex Smith around. White sounded off on the defacto athlete website, Twitter.

Why is the 49ers wasting their time with alex smith they need to move on better yet try to get luck next year would be good for them

There's more where that came from.

2 coaches have been fired for tht mans performance
Those are thoughts you keep to yourself or to teammates.

When someone responded to him on twitter saying that Smith will outplay Matt Ryan next season and called White an "ignorant prick", White responded with  "lol son your praying for a miracle."

After all that he apologized for his remarks and trouble he caused.

Ok 49ers fans I’m sorry I take tht back alex smith is a great players and the 49ers should sign him to a 5 year deal btw I don’t have anything against alex smith wht so ever he is a great guy

Sounds like that apology was forced. Maybe someone in the Falcons organization made him do it and told him to keep his mouth shut. The problem in all this is that it's pretty much true.

I think the apology was tongue-in-cheek, and not forced by an Atlanta official to "keep his mouth shut."

I think you're right. I thought about that after I posted it. Just picked a wrong choice of words.

While i think that he should not have said anything about that situation, is he wrong ? No. Its his opinion on a website where you post your thoughts and daily activity's. Good for Roddy White for saying what everyone else in the country it thinking.

I think Roddy is totally right. He's not saying anything new that all 49ers fans already knew! They wasted 6 seasons with this joke of a QB. Smith was never a fit from the get go. and we lost a few good coaches over him. So Jim If your only going to use Smith to set up another high draft pick for next season hoping to get A.Luck well i guess this move makes sense then.. And Roddy! Right on man!!!!!
