After watching our teams performance vs the Texans I think we have once again learned the importance of quality quarterback play. Alex Smith alone was able to gain 4 times the passing yards of Hill, take zero sacks, gained 16 yards rushing on 2 attempts, 14 first downs, and put up 3 touchdowns passes (29yd, 14yd, and 23yd, TD passes). Oh and he also finished with a 118 passer rating.
Our defense allowed only 3 points in the second half.
My point is the team we saw in the second half was a completely different team than the 1st. They were balanced, poised, and played with emotion. Im excited just has many other webzoners are to see our offensive unit with a spark. I also believe Alex Smith has earned the oppertunity to see where he can take this team.
But what we really learned from Houston is that getting a franchise quality quarterback should be our number 1 priority. If Alex Smith proves to be the guy then guy then great. If not we must look to the draft.
