you dont know that. its been 18 months since you saw him play. he couldve changed his mechanics, footwork, learned more about going through his progressions and each play. etc. you want to make an absolute statement about something that hasnt happened yet to make yourself look smart then go ahead, but it doesnt mean youll be right.

your right he coulda changed all of that. i doubt it but will see. I dont think anyone should be writing hill off just because all the articles are about smitty. Smith really has to win the starting job. But i will back hill until he loses the job. We all should be backing Hill right now. IMHO

This season, we shall see.... stay tuned!
We'll see. Gil Brandt's opinion goes a lot further with me than most, so that gives me some hope.

agreed
Today on NFL sirius radio Gil Brandt predicted that the 49ers will win 10 games and upset the world champion New Orleans Saints on MNF.

You have to believe the Godfather. I really hope I'm not drinking the kool aid but I have a great feeling about this season. Matter of fact, I'm about to order an Alex Smith and a Taylor Mays jersey right now!

Go Niners!

Even though he sounds like Lou Holtz, I respect his opinion on most football matters.
Yeah Gil Brandt thinks we are gonna start off 4-0! He really likes our moves on the offensive line and he pointed out how the 49ers held opposing offenses to almost 100 points less than the Saints did last year.....good stuff!

Alex Smith is a pretty smart kid. Plus this is the first time he's been in a system for 2 years. As long as the OLine holds up, I truly believe he's going to surprise a lot of folks this year.

My prediction: 23 TDs/ 13 INTs
Alex Smith will throw at least 25 TDs this season if he plays 16 games. Bank on it.
Frank Gore will run for 1300 yards.
Vernon Davis will catch 10 TDs.
Michael Crabtree will catch 70 passes.

It all sounds good, but overall the predictions for those stats seem a BIT far-fetched.

I dunno, I disagree. I think those are all attainable... Except maybe Vernon catching 10 TDs -- I think he'll get maybe 8. I just don't see him getting multiple 3-TD games again but I sure hope he proves me wrong. Crabtree will get 70 passes, I see that. Frank, if healthy can get 1300. And I think Smith gets 25 or more TD -- he had what, 18 last year in 10 games?

True about most of what you said, but for SOME reason I can't picture Gore getting 1300+ yards... Although he is very capable. It all kinda falls down whether or not we have the rookies A.Davis and Iupati start. I don't know..

25 TD's for Smith, I actually can see that. But how many INT's?

I expect all of those predictions to come true except for Smith. If Smith problems have been fixed like everyone says, 25TDs are certainly attainable as well.
