**OFFICIAL SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS vs. OAKLAND RAIDERS PRE-SEASON GAME DAY THREAD**

Just got done watching the game a few thoughts I had:

1. Alex Smith looked pretty good, again he showed good pocket presence.

2. David Carr sucks, that's a given, Shaun Hill is 10x's better than him (dumbass McCoulghan).

3. I'm liking Nate Byham, I think we can truly run two-TE formations now.

4. LaBoy continues to impress, but I noticed when he puts his hand down to rush the passer, he doesn't get as good as pressure from when he stands up. Still, much better than Parys Haralson IMO.

5. Phillip Adams has been out performing Paymah and James this preseason. Hope we keep Adams instead of Paymah and James.

its no question that were keeping adams
LOL it's totally cosmetic, but I'll say it again; Alex Smith looks way more comfortable in his helmet than he did before he applied the quad-chin strap (which he did during the off-season this year). His helmet isn't bobbing around, messing with his vision and posture concentration after each snap.

lol, i remember you saying something when he came out against the Texans..
Meh...it's on NFL Network replay right now but I'm going to turn it off...I can't handle listening to Raiders commentators the whole game.

Yeah, during college Alex rocked the quad, then when he hit the NFL he went to the double (where his helmet was bobbing constantly up and off his forehead, constricting his vision after the snap bounce), it was just painful to watch!

I think Alex learned a lot from watching Drew Brees during his UK SB XLIV promotion that you need all the support you can get from wearing such a heavy facemask!
