All those don't matter compared to ALEX. The bigggest problem we have on this team is lack of a Franchise QB. If we get that one solved we are on our way.
I think you're absolutely right on here. Good post, with great football insight.
It's a QB league, and if your QB cannot consistently make an accurate throw past 10 yards downfield, the other team's D is going to make things tough for you.
A. Smith still has alot to prove, especially in the consistency department, but he showed today that he has the physical tools, and that he has progressed and improved over time.
If he starts next week, he'll have his work cut out for him, though. Indy's DEs are pretty tough on QBs. OL is gonna have to step up too.
If we saw today the start of A. Smith's ressurection, though, you are correct, it may have been the single most important development for the Niners since Singletary took over. IMHO.
