How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

Watching Jamaal Charles being a dual threat with Alex reminds me a lot of the old school Niner RBs.

I watched every single Joe Montana game. It wasn't just dinking and dunking. Walsh had him taking at least three or four shots down the field every game, sometimes more.

I also watched every single Joe Montana game. When the defense would creep up closer to the LOS to stop the dinks and dunks they would take shots. But the majority of those yards were YAC.....

This...Plus it helps that he was throwing to the likes of JR, JT, and Roger Craig. Our HBs and FBs caught a lot passes for a reason, and it wasn't because they were going on 10-15 yard routes. Young had Ricky Waters catching for a bunch of yards out of the backfield.

It's easy to see what's going on here. This guy is trying to discredit anything that AS is doing in his short time in Reid's offense and making excuses for our current QB's struggles in his 3rd year in the same offense. SMH

and look at these numbers...

Roger Craig


Ricky Watters


Garrison Hearst


Tom Rathman


Frank Gore


Frank Gore hasn't even reached 500 yards in a single season and Tom Rathman 616 yards. You don't see that kind of production from a fullback nowadays.

For my money the duo of Rice and Taylor is one of the best wide receiving teams in history and Craig is the first running back in history to go 1000/1000.

But really, you guys need to stop pretending you can read minds. I can only speak for myself and if you're referring to me, I'm telling you honestly that you're flat-out wrong. As far as I'm concerned, Alex Smith is still playing efficient, smart, relatively mistake-free football just like he did for the last couple of years under Harbaugh for the Niners. What kills me about some of the conversation on Webzone is this tendency to call an explanation an excuse. Years ago, when I would point out that Smith didn't have continuity in an offensive system or didn't have quality receivers or didn't have good protection, people would call that making excuses. I thought these observations were legitimate explanations for what was happening on the field. Now today, Niner fans have a QB with 15 starts under his belt. That's an observation, a fact, an explanation for tendencies we might see like indecision, impatience in the pocket or the inability to see open receivers, not an excuse. It's an explanation. Why even make an excuse or call something an excuse? So, some of us are comparing a QB with 8 years of experience in the NFL running a system he's already pretty familiar with to a QB with 15 starts. That's all that's going on here. I don't even know why I would take any time to try to discredit Alex Smith, a player I've really liked since he began. In fact, although I'd love the Niners to get as much value out of that 2nd rounder as possible, I'm not going to sweat it because the other side of it is that I enjoy the fact that Smith is doing well. I'm not a Chiefs fan, but how can you not like watching a great guy like Alex Smith do well? Please give it a rest. I'm just being honest about this. I'm not the enemy or the boogieman or whatever it is you think I am. Really.
"Frank Gore hasn't even reached 500 yards in a single season and Tom Rathman 616 yards. You don't see that kind of production from a fullback nowadays."

Rathman would probably be one of the first to point out that the Niner teams he played on from '86 to '94 were some of the greatest in the franchise's history and some were among the greatest in NFL history. The Niner teams Gore started with weren't even close. So, I don't think comparisons like that are very fair to Gore.
marcus cooper touchdown haha

In no way was that a knock on Frank Gore, I was merely pointing out and challenging your comment about dinking and dunking. It's the staple of the WCO and you keep trying to use it to discredit how KC is using it.
Dinking and dunking was a term used by people who wanted to discredit Walsh. Smith and Reid should be honored to be demeaned in the same light!

pisses me off that Reid won't get Sherman out in front to open holes for JC and utilize play-action.... it's just dumb.
wonder if we will see a D Bowe sighting today ?
Alex Smith is going off for 400 today.
