The OL is bad, but they actually blocked OK for the game. Smith had time on most plays, but he choked. He had time to go through progressions but didn't as the game progressed.

Tennessee actually looked bad to me - far from being a playoff team. Their D is bad. Their O has ONE weapon. They will end up with a losing season - guaranteed.

This is a game we should have won if Hill played, but Smith gave it away. Hill has never ever given a game away.

You don't know that.

And, Hill showed us this season that he needed the defense to play lights out to win. And he did give away a game. Remember the Texans? Hill started that, sucked rotten donkey dicks and got pulled. It was Smith that got us into that game.

Like i've said, i love it when people write statements that they can't prove.

-9fA

Having a brain freeze or in need of a reading lesson? Where did I say Hill would win for sure?

And when did Hill suck rotten donkey d*ck the way Smith sucked yesterday? Smith didn't really got us anything, except 2 losses and a bunch of turnovers.

Stupid post of the day.

Try the Rams game.

Try the Falcons game.

Try the Texans game.

Next.

Wrong.

Wrong.

Wrong.

Next.

Can't remember the 3 picks and fumble lost, and half the passes being throw late in of those games.

Either way. Both QB's are not the future, but I'd rather have Hill as my backup (not starter) any day over Smith.

If you are going to put blame for the INT's at least put it in the right place. 2 of the 3 were all on the WR. The WR failed to catch the ball sending it 10 feet in the air off of a tip. As a matter of fact 4 out of the 5 INT's Smith has have come off of tipped passes from the WR failing to catch the ball. So again put the blame where it belongs.

Wow.. let's see AS pick last week wasn't his fault? I could rewatch it for the tenth time, but as I recall, the ball was high and barely within Crabtree's reach.

INT to Crabtree against Titans not his fault? Crabtree was waitng for the ball to arrive, and by the time it got there, the defender was all over him.

I would blame the INT on the Morgan tipped pass on Smith as well. Stared him down, and threw high into double coverage.

You need a DVR is you seriously think that Smith is only to blame for 1 of his 5 INTS...

lol. First int, Alex threw the ball too late, just like the announcers said. 2nd pick Alex didn't read the defense (didn't see the safety I guess) and thew the ball late once again allowing the safety to make a play on it. 3rd pick Alex decided to throw it in really tight coverage, and that play could've gone either way, both WR and Alex are to blame for that. I won't fault only him the fumble we lost (not the one we won back), but he also didn't get the ball out fast enough (in 3 sec).

And I also blame Raye for not running Gore more.

If a WR can touch the ball it is catchable. The blame is on the WR not on Smith. I have a DVR and I have rewatched the games and yes I STILL BELIEVE THAT THE WR'S ARE TO BLAME FOR 4 OF THE 5 INT'S.

I'm sorry if even with visual / audio evidence you still believe it was the WR's fault. On the first INT, the ball was tipped by the CB, because the throw came late, you can see the CB getting the jump on the ball. If he would've thrown it earlier, it would've been a catch or a drop pass at worst. If that's not enough, you can hear the announcers saying that the throw was late, and needed to come out quicker.

His 2nd INT all his fault, poor read.

3rd INT, HE STARTED DOWN MORGAN, and threw it to him in really tight coverage, some blame can be placed on Morgan I guess, but plenty of WR's wouldn't have made that catch, especially not no 6th rounder.

Why even bother with rhetorical questions... get separation, catch the ball, block...this is the reason why you come out with 2-5 WR's, just in case one guy doesn't get open...I don't understand, what is the point of this question?

Intersting I didn't see you mention tip the ball 10 feet in the air. But I didn notice you listed CATCH THE BALL!

Like i've said, i love it when people write statements that they can't prove.

-9fA

Having a brain freeze or in need of a reading lesson? Where did I say Hill would win for sure?

And when did Hill suck rotten donkey d*ck the way Smith sucked yesterday? Smith didn't really got us anything, except 2 losses and a bunch of turnovers.

Stupid post of the day.

Try the Rams game.

Try the Falcons game.

Try the Texans game.

Next.

Wrong.

Wrong.

Wrong.

Next.

Can't remember the 3 picks and fumble lost, and half the passes being throw late in of those games.

Either way. Both QB's are not the future, but I'd rather have Hill as my backup (not starter) any day over Smith.

If you are going to put blame for the INT's at least put it in the right place. 2 of the 3 were all on the WR. The WR failed to catch the ball sending it 10 feet in the air off of a tip. As a matter of fact 4 out of the 5 INT's Smith has have come off of tipped passes from the WR failing to catch the ball. So again put the blame where it belongs.

Wow.. let's see AS pick last week wasn't his fault? I could rewatch it for the tenth time, but as I recall, the ball was high and barely within Crabtree's reach.

INT to Crabtree against Titans not his fault? Crabtree was waitng for the ball to arrive, and by the time it got there, the defender was all over him.

I would blame the INT on the Morgan tipped pass on Smith as well. Stared him down, and threw high into double coverage.

You need a DVR is you seriously think that Smith is only to blame for 1 of his 5 INTS...


If a WR can touch the ball it is catchable. The blame is on the WR not on Smith. I have a DVR and I have rewatched the games and yes I STILL BELIEVE THAT THE WR'S ARE TO BLAME FOR 4 OF THE 5 INT'S.

I'm sorry if even with visual / audio evidence you still believe it was the WR's fault. On the first INT, the ball was tipped by the CB, because the throw came late, you can see the CB getting the jump on the ball. If he would've thrown it earlier, it would've been a catch or a drop pass at worst. If that's not enough, you can hear the announcers saying that the throw was late, and needed to come out quicker.

His 2nd INT all his fault, poor read.

3rd INT, HE STARTED DOWN MORGAN, and threw it to him in really tight coverage, some blame can be placed on Morgan I guess, but plenty of WR's wouldn't have made that catch, especially not no 6th rounder.



What is a WR's job in the NFL???

Why even bother with rhetorical questions... get separation, catch the ball, block...this is the reason why you come out with 2-5 WR's, just in case one guy doesn't get open...I don't understand, what is the point of this question?

Intersting I didn't see you mention tip the ball 10 feet in the air. But I didn notice you listed CATCH THE BALL!

A smarter QB wouldn't have thrown the ball there; a #1 overall draft pick wouldn't be throwing in crunch time, to a heavily covered 6th round pick.

What's the point of this thread? To justify all of your BS emotional rants the last couple years about Alex Smith vs. Shaun Hill?

Two weeks ago, most of you were up in arms about Shaun Hill and ready to praise Alex as the "phoenix," the saviour of the 49ers. Now you are up in arms about Alex and are upset because you cannot blame the OC anymore b/c it is a tired excuse.

DEAL WITH IT. He is our QB, the QB coach, receivers coach and OC should be on the same page and be very clear in communication with Alex about what he is best capable of doing.

For all the Nolan bashing, I believe his frustration stemmed from the fact that Alex Smith was nor will ever play with any swagger, with any leadership qualities, nor will he call out his OC or Coach if he has to because he is a "Yes Man." Alex Smith's press conference after the Titans loss should tell you all you need to know about him. At best, he is a mediocre QB.

BUT I am fine with it for now because we do not have any other choice. So it's the job of all the aforementioned ppl to make sure that they play to all of Alex's strengths and try to minimize his weaknesses. THEY should know how to do it, and if they do not, then lil Jed needs to step in the picture and point it out.

Chicago and Green Bay will be very telling games. Alex may be a mirage, but he is our QB, and he sure as hell better be 2-0 in those 2 games.

Nothing to do with Alex vs. Shaun, this thread so far has been about Alex vs. Alex.

I agree, can't go back to Hill (and I really wouldn't want to either); don't wanna throw Davis in there, he's still learning. Sadly, the only choice is to stick with Alex.

Then what are you crying about?? Smith is the QB for the remainder of the season whether you like it or not. You crying about it isn't going to make anything any better. You starting ANOTHER Smith thread won't make anything better.

I understand this is all about Alex, but it only exists b/c of our constant back and forth about our QB situation. People need to accept the fact that Alex is mediocre but he is better at some things (1 back sets and shotgun) vs. others (tight "I" formations or 1 wideout sets). I am glad Singletary pointed out that the 49ers should play with playmakers and if that means playing the 2 TE, 1 back, 2 WR sets, then they should call plays accordingly.

I am just trying to be productive on this forum and try to point out what may work. If Alex Smith is still the same after all the adjustments, then we should not restart the "mirage" thread - we should start talking about FA QBs, College QBs and Nate Davis.
