We've learned that the football novices need to lay off of Alex Smith.
The offensive line is terrible. Smith has no time to throw. Homers need to watch more games than just Niner's and see how much time the Big Ben's, T Brady's or even Vince Young's have to throw. Smith doesn't even have time to go through his progressions.
Jimmy Ray's offense is less dynamic than what I ran in junior high.
Good teams go for the jugular they dont try to run the clock out (Pittsburgh last week)
This team is still building and still trying to find that chemistry...its coming though...
paint kettles black much.
According to your over simplification all NFL franchises would draft OL in the 1st round every season and just pick any QB off the streets.
Since we all know that is not the case; then you would have to conclude that maybe just maybe it is not as simple as you are painting it to be, and the person standing behind Center actually does matter.
All simple explanations fail.
It is not ALL about the line
It is not ALL about the QB.
It is a combination of the 2.
In the absence of one; simpletons can not judge the other
In the absence of one; smart people can.
In the absence of a good line, Smith critics have repeatedly pointed out negative indicators on Alex Smith taking into account the bad line play. You can choose to ignore education when it is being offered to you; but I would be careful who you call a novice.
For the record, the novices have been winning this debate for 5 years as Alex Smith has never once in his career entered anything near top 20 territory by any credible entity
