Alex Smith & Crabtree Chemistry

Hill throws (a dead duck) to Crabtree... INTERCEPTION!

I think it may. And getting away from the subject a tad, It shows that Alex wants to be there for sure. I'm just sayin that if the offense continues to stink it up with Gore back in the lineup, that Smith should get a shot to start at some point down the line this season.

I think you are jumping the gun a little bit. AS is like the only player (or QB for that matter) that actually lives in the bay area... Would you leave that smoking hot wife alone for a few days?

I was thinking the same thing , Hill thinks he's played so well that his job is safe? What could be more important then getting this right , especially given the fact that he's not that good and has finally got a starting gig, very poor decision making on his part, like when it's 3rd and 12 and he dumps it off to a back or throws it in the dirt. Say what you want about Smith even if he sucks at least he's trying, doesn't mean much but it shows some freakin' character
Certainly won't hurt. But if Alex never plays...
One week isn't going to make a difference.
IMO Sing will make other O changes before he messes with the QB, That being said if Hill doesnt produce in the next few weeeks i can see Sing giving Smith a shot....

You don't think it would have helped leading into Crabtrees first game?

so shaun hill is supposed to sacrifice his only 3 day's off because of crabtree?? Please, getting a couple days to see family and clear your head, is prob more important that helping crabs, who wont do much this season anyway...

Right, let's just forget it until next year.

You kind of asked the same question twice. But anyways..

Sure, it helps. I have to believe Crabs would have more chemistry with Smith than he's going to have with Hill, come Sunday. He's gotten no reps with Shaun.

I was gonna say the same thing. This goes all the way back to when Crab was drafted. I think even then he was only catching passes from Smith. And now once he's back, catching them from smith again. i'm not gettin all amped up, just something to notice, know what i mean.

I'm interested to see who runs the 1st team in practice this week (today). If Shaun is there working with them or Crabs. Maybe even if MC gets any reps with the first team this week.
