It was a nice piece, and though it covered ground we have all noted here to some degree before, it did it in a deeper and more cohesive manner.
One thing stands out; RZ efficiency. This is one that drives me crazy. Alex Smith, as noted in this article, had been lights out until HaRo came along and then we see this very predictable, ultra conservative approach and the RZ efficiency dives. What the heck! If Harbaugh is such an inspirational coach, and Roman is such a creative genius, why did RZ efficiency plummet when they arrived. As noted by the author, I'll take the pre-Harbaugh Smith any day.
I won't go through all the rest of his piece but I feel there is a great deal of truth there backed up by some good research.
I'm staying with a 9 win season for the Chiefs and a wild card berth.
You can have the alex smith that gets booed off the field he was so horrible
you are f**king delusional. You can't possibly be serious! The guy was a bum before the niners hired harbaugh, and if he hadnt stayedo n he would have enjoyed the rest of his career as a david-carr-style backup or played in the CFL.
