Fire Foerster, draft linemen.

3 picks and 2 fumbles is not "Solidly"

He also completed 64% of his passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns.

Aside from the fumbles the performance wasnt that bad up until the 2nd Int. There was a few poorly over/under thrown balls but generally it was ok.

I know he has had enough chances but im willing to see if Smith can reddem himself with big performance on Thurs. I dont want to completely discount the last two weeks impressive performances (its too depressing to think all is lost!)

When was the last time we had a QB throw for more than 200 yards 3 games in a row? I'm hoping he does it again on Thursday, this time without the picks.

Does that include the ints?

Bring in Hill or put in Davis

If our oline was better, I would rather have Hill out there, with this oline, Smith is better.

Hill would do better because of Gore, when the oline played well, Hill played well.

But with a bad oline, Hill is more useless than Smith.

And I'm scared for Nate Davis, I hope they don't f**k up his career...keep him on the bench.

Sadly, this Niner season might be over then.

Oh, and Smith's passes weren't great yesterday, at least Hill's ducks come out on time...either way, both QB's are not the future.

No way. With Hill in there the defense puts 8 or 9 guys in the box which is why we couldn't run.

You kidding me? Smith had two really good passes for TDs or long plays. That one TD pass to Hill was all Smith. The offense line sucked and Smith had to break out running to the sideline and throw to Hill.

Smith was staring down his receivers, and had 4 turnovers. I dont care what you guys say, Alex is not the answer.

Yep, looked like the same old Smith. Same problems that I think he's never going to overcome. Continues to stare down people and throw the ball too late; pretty bad NFL formula.

alex has the arm to get it there, or near there even if late.
Hills ducks come out on time, but take so long to get there, that the wind knocks them down.

It gives the defense another player.

I have to scratch my head at some of the comments , no smith was not that great and seems to be taking some heat on this board . But when I think I have seen the craziest comments all I have to do is just go to the raiders board . One week it is screw Hill put in Smith , next week it is screw Smith put in Davis . It is so funny how fast you guys are ready to give up on your team .

Smith wasn't horrible. His stats and very good plays prove that. Hill could not have made that TD throw to Hill in the first half.
