Forget that we lost to a mediocre team that wont even sniff the playoffs. Forget that our top 10 defense has fallen from grace. Forget that we went from 3-1 (easily 4-0) to 3-3 and most probably 3-4 after next Sunday....
Oh no, forget all those useless tidbits.
The Zone here is having one of those "my boner's out of my boxers" moment where they see Alex Smith perform one of his rare "magic tricks" that dazzle the crowds, bamboozle the misinformed, and electrify the masses. Thats right folks. After ALL that hard work, Alex Smith has arrived. And so has, miraculously, his forgotten arm. The once considered "bust" of Niner lore has finally learned through divine intervention how to throw a ball...........and man, arent we impressed ?
Of course, no one here will acknowledge that our playoff dreams for 2009 are shattered; our once promising season is now down the drain. No......we'd rather immerse ourselves in the greatness that is Alex Smith. So here we go again.....a lot of miscues, misthrows, and superb 87.5 QB ratings along with the all too familiar 15/22 for 136 yards passing stats. Of course, we'll see the occasional 200-250 yard games where we've been put out by the opponent by halftime, then Smith will go on a tear in the 4th quarter against 3rd stringers.
And at the end, when it's all said and done.......our GLARING need for a legit QB will be forgotten for yet another year, cause we'll all be convinced that Joe Montana has been reborn in San Fran.
It's become an all too familiar tune in the Bay Area.
Good luck in Indy this week Alex. Im sure you'll rip Manning a new one.
