Troy Smith gets his chance to start at quarterback for 49ers against Broncos
Smith, a fifth-round pick by the Ravens in 2007, was considered the frontrunner for the starting job in 2008 until he came down with a tonsil infection that sidelined him for seven weeks. That opened a door for Joe Flacco...and closed it for Smith. When 49ers quarterback Alex Smith suffered a separated shoulder (he'll be out two-to-three weeks), some had thought that Mike Singletary might choose to start David Carr, but this time the door opened for Troy Smith.
"Football is football, and anyway you cut it up,'' was Smith's nonchalant comment."It's going to be 11 guys on offense and 11 guys on defense."
