critique of Alex Smith? - "getting in a comfort zone... gaining full grasp of offense, continues to grow"
nice connection with Delanie and VD offense tailored to TE for Smith? - "always want a TE that the QB can have a good chemistry with"
swagger from Alex? - "swagger is perceived in many ways... he's gaining confidence each day"
comments on performance of Dixon? - "he's fortunate to see the various D-fronts he has and will... allowed him to understand patience in runs... "
getting a look at Gore and Westbrook game 3? - "don't know"
how did rooks look? - "getting better, work in progress... Solari working them well... exciting to see them grow"
Nate Davis performance and progress? - "he did okay... did some good, did some not so good... QB position is sense of urgency to learn .. continual learning, and takes lots of time and work"
timetable on Nate's grasp of offense? - "need to see his commitment to learning... needs to work harder in offseason... dyslexic, ADHT, whatever... gotta work hard as possible... no blaming lack of work ethic on such things. I don't want to hear "I'm trying, but it's just hard"... tell me you will and mean it"
mix between Carr and Davis next week? - "don't know, we'll talk about it... gotta look at it" (doesn't sound like Nate will get as much opportunity again from Mike's tone)
WRs, lots of snaps... Zeigler... where do these guys fit in when Crabtree's back? - "Zeigler works his tail off, and can play any spot... Ginn is a real bonus for us... (sounds high on Ginn)...
blitzes... lots of blitzes vs Minny... gonna keep that up? - "just wanted to take a look at it, we'll see"
players jumped out with very nice impression? - "Briggs jumps out... very excited about LaBoy"
Manny Lawson overall evaluation? - "continues to develop... Manny's gonna have a big year"
