Sorry to pour salt in the wounds, but this is too damn funny (From Yahoo! Sports)
Here's what we believe they're saying in the conversation pictured above...
Mike Singletary: Alex, congratulations.
Alex Smith: Coach, we're losing 24-10.
Singletary: Yeah, but that fumble was an all-timer. One of the worst individual plays in pro football history. Not merely bad, but funny-bad. It's your masterpiece.
Smith: Just tryin' to make plays, coach.
Singletary: NFL Films has spliced that thing into every blooper video they've ever produced, right between Pisarcik and Yepremian. Bleacher Report already ranked it on seven different top-10 lists. Todd Collins just texted me to say you're awful.
Smith: (Giggles, then composes self). Sorry, coach, but that Yepremian play is funny as [profane].
Singletary: You're out of the game, Alex.
Smith: Coach, we're only down two scores! I can feel one of those binges coming, where I look like a totally legit quarterback for, like, nine minutes of game-time!
Singletary: For real? Because I've got David Carr(notes) standing over there, ready to go.
Smith: Dude, that's like picking between Thing One and Thing Two. You're not serious.
Singletary: (Makes mad face).
Smith: I dare you to put David Carr in this game.
Singletary: (Makes maddest-ever face)
Smith: They just punted, coach. There's still time. I can do this thing!
And you probably know the rest of the story.
Smith enters, briefly looks awesome, throws a pair of TD passes. But then, just when you're starting to believe, he tosses a game-ending interception inside the final minute. He finishes with 309 passing yards, three touchdowns, three turnovers, and his fifth loss in a five-week-old season.
