Clark only fails horribly if he proves he has no idea how to hire a GM with his next hire.
He went out and got the most highly praised candidate he could find for his first shot. I don't blame him. In hindsight it was horrible but it was kind of like drafting JaMarcus Russell. A lot of teams would have done it.
Alex Smith's career record when the opponent scores at least 24 points: 2-30-1
