49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told CBS Sports that not only is their success this year due to QB Alex Smith, but called him one of the elite...

“I think people that know football and understand the game appreciate Alex Smith as a very talented quarterback,” “He’s every bit the elite quarterback as there is playing in the game right now.”
Now hey, I'm all for giving Smith some credit, but the new thing now is to throw around the word "elite" like it's the word "awesome." If Smith is "elite," then what is Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady? Heck, how about Matt Schaub? I'll take him over Smith all day. Even Phillip Rivers during this bad year he's having, I'd take. People need to stop crowning players "elite" because their once bad teams are no longer losing. You're an "elite" player when you constantly fight to keep winning.

He is 1 of the top 20 QB's on this planet. Does that not qualify as elite?

Exactly where in your quote did he call him elite?
