Making the assumption that Hill could not pass a team to victory then it would appear that Singletary decided that running we could do and passing we may do. With that belief system then a strong defense and a ball control offense will keep you near victory.
Now that the Hill experiment has died away we are back with a refurbished Alex Smith and he has shown improvement over the past. Next week we will be playing a tough opponent but we should be favored to win. Now we will get to see if Alex can bring home the bacon. Can he indeed win? Can Crabtree break loose and catch a couple of TDs. Can VD catch another TD? Can we run on the Titans and can we take advantage of the leagues poorest pass defense? If we can then we will win and start to identify ourselves as a specific kind of team.
This wont happen because Raye sets the QB's up for failure.
Correct me if I'm wrong but regardless of Pass/Run percentage did Raye actually send in a decent amount of Passing plays? Crabtree was what 18 for 80 yards?
If that's setting your QB up to fail gimme more.
I still don't believe that we are a Passing team, but I don't buy into what you're peddling.
