I think the INT's will go down once the offense spends some time together. Timing, chemistry and familiarity will only come with time. Having the best personnel at reciever (Crabs and Hill) as well as Smith getting more into a rythym with the offense and Raye calling plays suited to our players.
As for the defense playing well and getting a score, that hasn't really happened since the Rams game.
As for holding onto a tight game and getting a win, everyone on this board was screaming and whining because that was the game plan to start the season. Posters were wanting people to be fired because that was the game plan with Hill as the QB.
3 weeks ago, everyone wantedto "open up the offense", and when both Raye and Sing (stated) that it wasn't that simple people called them idiots. Well now the offense is being opened up and the team is having "growing pains" and is making some mistakes.
Improvement will not happpen overnight and for some reason this pisses people off. I still say that things will improve, but it will take longer that 2 1/2 games t do it.
Not everyone NFL, but I feel ya. There is no middle ground here so far as 9er fans are concerned. Either you are good now or you should be cut, waived, fired or whatever.
It's sad that it's come to this.

Maby if Alex was to put a little more air under his passes, they are less likely to be tipped.
How about if WR's just catch the ball instead of tipping it up in the air.

LOL. This guy throws more picks that were not his fault than any other QB that I know of...
There's got to be something to this...
if this continues....forget a Brady rule...I think there should be a Alex rule....if the ball gets deflected, it is a penalty if the opposing defense catches the ball...if it does happen.....automatic 1st down, with the culprit suspended for the rest of the game.......just so "Teammates, Coaches, Management, the Bears Coaching staff, and analysts." don't have to go through so much time to defend the guy.
Probably seems like I'm piling on....but I understand if Alex was still a rookie....or if this was just a new thing....but its not, and when all these people come to his defense...its like they are all worried about his confidence....as if he is still a rookie.....basically like "its ok Alex its not your fault...continue what you're doing......it has been working mighty fine." no.....I REALLY HOPE Sing or Raye are REALLY getting through to Alex behind the scenes that this is unacceptable.....especially in this league where these defenders live off turnovers.....they are athletic as fk and thrive off mistimed passes....or dropped passes.
That's not why they are defending him though. They know and understand that in San Francisco as the Starting QB that Alex's position as QB1 is tenuous at best with the fans.
It's not that they are babying him, so much as it is they are pointing this out in the hopes that the FANS' will be patient with him. It's not like he's just another in a long line of average QBs' with no level of expectation to meet with us. He is following legends. And that is a tough act to follow in any business let alone the NFL.
following Legends? Ty Detmer, Jeff Garcia, Tim Rattay, Dilfer, Chris Winkie dinkie do....etc. all these QBs have come and gone.....I think the fans have been humbled over the years.....they have been patient with Alex....and the front office has been more patient with ALex than any QB I have seen in all my years watching football...
