The offense looked exponentially better with him at the helm. We actually spread the ball out and threw DOWN the field. Smith does have a better arm. He made a few nice throws to Crabtree and the THREE TDs to VD can't be overlooked.
We needed this in the first half. Unfortunately, we couldn't get a f**king first down. 1 yard in the first quarter? WTH?!?!
to you for man'n up
I always supported Smith and just wanted him to have another shot and he was very impressive today.I hope he can build on this so to see once and for all if he's the future,if he faulters then Nate D should be given a shot.

My sentiments exactly! It doesn't do much good if you have Smith in there running that "power football" offense. This is clearly his strength, so let's open up the playbook and play to it. We're going to need to score next week anyway!
Pass to set up the run. Recognize this Sing, it's going to save us. Our best guys on offense have changed and we need to play to that strength. Vernon and Crabtree - let's get them involved most and hand off to Gore when they decide to play back.
