Although Smith didnt play very well today, he was not the reason the niners lost today. It was because the receivers except vd and gore couldnt catch worth anything.
In addition, our o-line as usual stunk it up.
And the defense was missing all day.
Seriously, this team has only a handful of players who would be starters in other teams and the lack of talent mixed with a ridiculous amount of non-creative play call is destroying the team.
At this point, Scott M. has to be replaced and possibly Singletary too because inspiration and ruh-ruh get you only so far in the pro game.
And I dont know about the rest of you, but I'm really tired of this team playing below part for the better part of 10 years now. I've wasted my 20s rooting and looking forward to every game and season. Enough is enough.
Smith's lack of production is ALWAYS someone else's fault. It's the coaching, the OL, the receivers, the rbs, the defense, the OC, bad luck....always their fault, not his. But, if he shows well, then HE gets all of the credit! These excuses are getting very old.
Some of you cried; "Release Smith! Open the play book up!" And now you see what the coaching staff has seen for years. Yes, Smith makes play, but unfortunately, he makes just as many plays for the opposing team.
When this team had a chance to acquire the most elusive QB in the history of the game, management allowed some pink panties protesters to dissuade them from doing what they knew what was in the best interest of the team. So, we are getting exactly what you asked for; highly inconsistent qb play that does not win games. Did you actually think that the OL would produce differently; that Smith would morph into Montana? Some of us have NO grounds to complain.
I keep seeing that some of you think that Davis is not ready. Although you have no proof to support your claim, you maybe right, and if you are, then the coaching staff needs to get him ready ASAP as neither Smith or Hill are the answers. Other rookies are getting it done and you can not convince me that Davis would look any worst with a conservative game plan than Hill or Smith.
