The Game Of Smith's Career?

This game wont be just the Alex and Aaron show. This whole 49er team, after that last game, which we did win, need to start playing good football all at the same time. Alex wont go anywhere without backup. We came to this conclusion on the zone that Alex isnt a quarterback that can do it by himself. No turnovers means conservative. Do we play well being conservative? I dont think anybody can, because you give up the ball too quick. We need plays that fit our talent, and go out and try to score every series. Hold onto that ball longer than they do. Dont call plays to help the defense, spread em out. Our defense needs to put all the pressure its got up front to cover up our injured secondary. Force turnovers. In the end, halfway through the fourth, to complete the best game we play, finish the game. We wont be perfect, but it cant be all on Alex. We just have to play to win, and not worry about losing. For once.

Cool story bro..
I expect what we already know about him. He'll do some good things. Some bad things. The 49ers defense will be on the field a lot. The 49ers will not score very much if they don't get the run game going.
Too many of you keep rehashing the same old tired aphorisms. There is an important factor that is sadly neglected: many of Alex's good passes and plays were negated by untimely penalties and other srewups by offensive teammates. In other words, for Alex to succeed, his OL and WRs need to get their heads out of their butts, and play error-free ball.
why is it that every game becomes the game of Smith's career? None of these games are the game of his career, but collectivly they are what will decide happens to him for next year

Its the game of his career for the zone. I'm serious man this place will melt down completely if Smith falters and we lose. It will melt down even if he has a decent game and we lose.

Nothing good will come out of this game for the zone unless we win 55-0 and Smith has 400 yards passing, 4 TDs, and has a 90% completion rating and a 158.3 QB rating.

It will melt down if he plays decent and we win. It will melt down if he lights it up and we win. I have realized that here in Niner Talk no matter what Smith does he is always wrong.

The "sky is falling" people will always be here, even after a win. The critics like myself that think this team could turn it around, but are not close to that yet will still be critics until we see players that have historically struggled, finally doing a good job for 60 minutes, every single week for several weeks in a row.

Some of the elite QB's in the league can't even do this. Everyone has off days where they struggle. then again elite QB's tend to have an OLine that can block

You get what I'm saying though...over many games you can see what a guy can do, and what he can't. Overall you have to have a lot more good than bad, and you have to be the guy to drive the team down for a win in crunch time. If Smith's overall resume fit that description, there would not have been open competition for starter the last two seasons.

Smith was injured the last 2 seasons so yes there would be a QB competition. Yes I get what you are saying but again people don't take into account things like the OLine and predictable play calling.

If he goes into Green Bay's house, puts up a nice game, and beats them at Lambeau, something we haven't done in almost 20 years, all against a top 5 pass defense. THAT will show me something.

THAT would be huge.

I agree amigo.

But I think Green Bay is way overrated this season. They are a very beatable team.

Its not too big a stretch to imagine the Niners winning this one. Not probable, but definitely possible.
