Why couldn't Martz do with us what he's doing with the Bears?

Simple. Cutler and speedy receivers.

In my mind, this kills the "our problem is bad QB coaching" argument. Even with one of the brightest offensive minds in the business giving him direction, Smith coudln't cut it.

Wasnt Smith hurt the year Martz was here?
Hill WAS playing better then Cutler right now when Singletary pulled back on the ropes a bit from Martz. Hell, had he played all season he would have been top three in total yards. What fans here wouldn't take that? Had Smith/Hill battled it out and Martz stayed, another offseason gone by, who knows how good we'd be right now esp. with Crabtree in the mix, Ginn, Williams, Westbrook, etc. VD may even have gotten involved more too.

Smith hasn't been good, but your lack of knowledge in this thread is about as good as Alex. Smith got hurt in pre season that year and was out for the year. Never played a down for Martz in that system.
Smith didn't play in '08 due to injury. He never got a chance to run the Martz offense. Cutler may be better, but this is a baseless argument IMO.

So why wasn't Martz able to do that here, with Smith, Hill, and O'Sullivan? Our team is otherwise as talented as the Bears....

Cutler playing off the charts??? I count 3 possible interceptions in that game in addition to the one he threw - 2 were called back because of flags.

3 POSSIBLE INT's? is that an official stat? every pass is a possible INT

Smith never played a down under Martz

FAIL

Gee Shaj, why don't you enlighten us. This is another backhanded jab at Smith thread.

I think we get it by now, your opinion of Smith is low. He's a terrible QB that should be cut.

Bradford and Stafford and Fitzpatrick are better QBs on crappier teams.

Cutler is better with the same OC.

Etc, or since I know you're a Seinfeld fan, yadda, yadda, yadda.

If you recall, Martz said Smith was ready to take over the starting job from JTO the week he re-injured his shoulder.

It was common knowledge the reason Martz wanted JTO to come to SF was that it would give the team someone who knew his system for practice and early games. No one expected JTO to be the ultimate solution. He was stop gap until Smith or Hill learned Martz' system well enough to play it.

We all know that Smith was injured and Hill took over. Smith never had the chance to play in the open Martz system. What Martz is now doing in Chicago is the real deal, not the MS deal.

Because Alex Smith's status could never be questioned they 49ers only brought scrubs at QB. The point was.....Martz was never given a chance here....and one way or another it will always come down to Alex Smith....thats kind of the deal when morons misuse their #1 pick and giant egos can't accept they messed up

I for one wanted to keep Martz and give him a clear path as the next HC and wanted to trade for Cutler.

Cutler is a dumber but stronger Alex Smith.

Hester and that missed field goal saved the day for the Bears.
