He was playing like a pro bowler his first two games in 07 before the injury. It takes 2 years to fully recover so in 09 he should beast up.

I still remember that opening game against the Cardinals. Willis and Lawson were flying all over the field and giving what's his face (frat boy QB) one of the worst nights of his life. I also remember how Alex Smith lead us to the late game victory.

I would love to see Lawson playing like that again. It was special.

Yeah..that was all around a great game. The way Smith handled that drive is still what keeps me believing in him. He hit Jackson right in the hands on a bomb earlier in the drive but, of course, it was dropped. I swear Smith can play the game.

I completely agree. Alex has the tools, but we just need to build up his confidence again (after Nolan threw him under the bus... ) and bring it all together.

What about the mental tools and instinct? Mental tools include a lot more than simply not turning the football over (which he's done a lot of anyways) or not throwing because the game hasn't slowed down enough for him yet.

Alex never had and never will what matters for QB's.....Leadership

^ Don't understand how you can say that based on the aforementioned drive (which by the way was all we were talking about, your Smith bashing is not really required, but I'll play anyway).

Based on this sole drive (ceteris peribus, all other things unconsidered) Smith showed GREAT leadership ability. He hit D Jack in the hands which would have ended the drive a whole minute earlier had it been caught (NOT Smith's fault, Larry Fitz would have caught it with his feet), he srambled for a 4th and 1 play AND he had his TD pass to Arnaz Battle STRIPPED away bc Battle couldn't hang on to the ball. By the way, he still led the drive and got us the win.

Therefore, given certain oppurtunities (game winning opps in final minutes, he hasn't had many), he has shown the mentioned leadership based on my only example especially for a 2nd 3rd year QB on a s**tty team.)

Hopefully it's all of the above.

Of course without Nolan sabotaging their careers.

1: Alex Smith, tossing him to the wolves with a terrible team, trading the only guy on the team who could have helped him, and shoulder-gate.

2: Vernon Davis, holding him in to block on every play.

3: Manny Lawson: Big nickle package that kept him on the bench for much of the time.

4: Frank Gore: Cutting Norris after he and Gore became such a dominating duo.[/quote]

I remember defending Vernon from the majority of the board after every game last year. Now it seems that more users than not support him.

I am with you 100%, but it is going to be these three guys that are going to have a outstanding year. Im looking at 60 or more catches for Vernon, over 250 carries and over 1400 yards for Gore, and YOU CAN QUOTE ME ON THIS BUT ALEX WILL SHINE BIRGHTER THEN HE DID AT UTAH WITH HIS STATS.

We will dominate this year....GO NINERS

PD
Offense:

1. Josh Morgan
2. Vernon Davis

Defense:

1. Manny Lawson
2. Kentwan Balmer

ALEX! ALEX! ALEX! He'll get his respect. People will forgot about the early years when it is all said and done.

Bold statement here but all these players will have beakout years:

Vernon Davis
Josh Morgan
Parys Haralson (spelling?) (breakout i mean solidify himself as a real pass rusher)
Manny Lawson (realize his potential)
Joe Staley (become a Pro Bowl OT)

That isn't the playbook, they're looking at porn!
yup tarrell brown, manny lawson, and dashon goldson
Assuming we continue to ignore upgrading the D with a legit pass rusher, the team will NEED Haralson and Lawson to step up.

My pick would be Haralson, seeing as Lawson has done NOTHING in terms of being a pass rusher.

On Offense, I think Shaun Hill. If he gets to start for the whole season, he should put up respectable #s. Not GREAT numbers, but respectable.
