I know going for the deep pass was brought up by someone else. I just want to further the thought. It was brought up also by the announcer for the game. Dude said Smith should try for the deep pass because the Dallas D was crowding the line. But the more I think about it and was watching the game while he said that, the more it seems retarded to me, when the short and the intermediate high percentage throws are there to take from the defense. It was there all game, just whether the connections were made due to execution or not. Smith did hit Avery for 31 yards to convert a 3r&13 to continue a scoring drive. With Smith and Charles running, the Chiefs were in a lot of 3rd very convertible 5-10 yards --occasionally they backed themselves up with penalty. Why the hell would you want to get away from trying to convert those 5-10 yards for the 1st down conversion, for a low percentage deep throw that very possibly may not connect and end a drive.

Kinda like going deep on 3rd down when all you need is 5 yds for the first down marker. And going back to your point, throwing short or intermediate gives and added positive of not requiring the offensive line to pass block for an extended time. They only have to pass block for a 5-10 yard strike. The short routes develop quickly for Smith to get rid of the ball.

Niners could have used a little bit of this last night

Soon enough, I am going to look closer at some of the circumstances of failed conversions. I do remember a few drops that concerned me. One thing I don't like is seeing Smith in the shotgun when the down and distance is 3rd and 4 or less... makes little sense to me. You have one of the best RBs in the game... at least make the D play honestly instead of having no concern over the run threat and always throwing it there.

More to what you were saying.. that OL was simply not protecting well often... so 5-7 step drops and deep route progressions were not good solutions.

I think the Chiefs were trying to spread out the Dallas defense to give Charles room to run and out of the backfield. Similar to what the Rams were doing with Steven Jackson when he was with them and Faulk before that.
If the Niners play like they did last night, the Chiefs will have more wins than the Niners. I hope that doesn't happen.

Yeah. It will be moot then.

However, it will not last that long: Should Smith have a poor performance in an upcoming week (which, as most QBs do, he will), the usual suspects will show up and crow, the thread will be locked, bannings will occur, rinse, repeat, thank you, come again.

Well, it wouldn't really make much sense.

Hey! Why isn't crowing allowed if Smith has a poor game? It happens when he plays well...what's the dealio, bro?

Not about the player, hasn't been for a LONG time. You know that, though... Making your post puzzling.

What's your goal with it? There is over 42,000 threads and you are worried about this one? Sounds personal. Nobody said you couldn't criticize when he has a bad game. We are saying be respectful, don't get personal, and be fair. Most arent

This often isn't even about the player... it's just a sneaky way to incite and take digs at other posters that others have targeted for hurting their feelings in past conversations..... and most people understand this by now. If I had my wish, this thread would be locked immediately and the name Alex Smith never spoken on any SF sites ever again. But oh well... that could never happen.

There are 42,000 threads and this one leads to more arguments, which is why we monitor it. Just an answer.

Welts creased Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith's forehead. The bridge of his nose was bruised. His left elbow was flaming red.

If anyone personified what it took to slug out a 17-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, it was Smith.

Smith led the Chiefs in rushing with a career-best 57 yards against a Dallas defense that was crowding the line of scrimmage with the intent of stopping running back Jamaal Charles.

Smith was under constant pressure from Cowboys pass rushers DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer and Jason Hatcher but still completed 21 of 36 passes for 223 yards, two touchdowns, and perhaps most important, no interceptions.

"In the trenches, when it's time to buckle up, he's all in," said wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who caught Smith's second touchdown pass. "You should see the look in his eyes when he's demanding … and controlling the offense. I never had a quarterback like that.

"He's tough, he's not going to back down …"

Listening to a big tough guy like Brandon Albert say the play of his QB has inspired him to put it on the line for the team says a lot about Smith's play and the respect he has developed in his teammates. That was one of those games that a gutty team with an inspiring leader will win...and a team lacking those things will lose. It takes more than fantasy numbers to win those kinds of games. Romo loses. Smith wins.

Next question?
