"smashmouth" vs "spread"

It was no secret what Singletary wanted on offense prior to week 1. Bringing in Jimmy Raye validated his want. Brett Favre had a sub-par season last year in his system. This year at 40 years old Favre is competing for MVP because the talent he was given is being used. Alex Smith hasnt had the easiest NFL "upbringing" with so many personnel changes. I dont think he was given the shot to blossom. These past several games look at what made him shine. Our talent is outside with Davis, Crabtree, Morgan, and Gore is also a big threat through the air. Our line isnt even considered marginal, so how do you run smashmouth? I like Singletary's togetherness philosophy but im hoping his eyes are as open as the fans and realize something, it's time to throw the ball and open up the field.
like i said before....alex smith shows he can play but the coaches need to hand over the team to him and his style instead on waiting to fall behind 20 points to let Smith turn into a gunslinger.

If Smith had the 2nd half offense to play with every game i think he can really take off with an interception here or there but more experience will work them kinks out

We definitely need to use the spread more. The only time Smith ever looks good is in the spread. Why we continue to avoid using unless we are down by 20 is beyond me

until the O-line is made over the coaches need to stop handcuffing him Singletary says he puts in whoever gives us the best chance to win so why not run the offense that gives us the best chance to win

This team is TAILOR-MADE for the Spread.

Alex Smith - Heisman Finalist running the Spread offense at Utah.
Michael Crabtree - Two time Biletnikoff winner in the Spread offense at TT.
Josh Morgan - Tyrod Taylor and VT runs the Spread offense.
Adam Snyder, Joe Staley were Linemen in the Spread at Oregon and Central Michigan, respectively.

I dont understand why we're tryin to do something we're not built to do.
If Singletary wanted a smashmouth offense he should have drafted Michael Oher with the #10 pick. It just so happens that we have the right pieces to run the spread...Smtih, Crabtree, V Davis, weak o-line...etc. In the NFL it's about adapting to your strengths and the strength of this team and this quarterback is the SPREAD offense. Wake up Singletary. God I hate defensive minded coaches!
1 yard and a cloud of dust. "STAY THE COURSE." "We need to be able to run the ball when we have to run."

Damn...I totally agree. Were seeing this. There has to be a reason why SingRaye™ won't just let us be who we R?

No lets STAY THE COURSE with 1 yard and a cloud of dust. "We have to be able to run when we need to run."
I THINK BEFORE THE GAME STARTS THEY SHOULD GIVE OUR OPPONENT A 21 POINT LEAD LOL THEY WE WILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO CATCH UP AND NOT RUN OUT OF TIME LIKE WE DID IN EVERY GAME

I know the I suck first half smith.

I know the I pad my stats in the second half of an unwinable game smith too.....


I also know the 140 yards passing but we won by a fg smith....




Who I don't know is this if I had five more mins I might win this game smith.



I'll be frank .....I don't like smith....I could spend hours b***hing...

But....this oc does....put both hill and smith in the right place.


The 49ers have been one more pos away from maybe winning what.....3....4? More games this season.
what would Smith's stats be in comparison to Rodger's providing we ran the spread the whole game. Rodger's line rots and yet he is considered a legit NFL qb and possibly a top 5-7......go figure
