The 9ers most effective offense is out of the spread or shotgun formation but that doesn't mean it has to be this way most the time. Frank Gore still is our best football player. Frank needs touches too. On the other hand, Smith needs to learn to be a qb who can take snaps out of ANY formation. But I do agree, he absolutely is a different qb when slingin' it around the way he does. And this is by far the best weapons he has ever had in his tenure with us.
