Simply put, Alex is the only QB on the roster built to lead us back from any deficits we incur in games.
Raye needs to actually incorporate some WELL-DESIGNED run plays -- Not this HB and FB dive Madden bull crap -- but sadly, I feel that's too much to ask. Because without well-designed running plays, we won't be able to run because our line can neither block well enough for Gore consistently, nor can they pass block at all for Alex.
Gosh I can't wait for Staley and Clements to be back. (Hopefully they aren't rusty..)
We don't know what David can do yet.
If the wanking Niner front office doesn't draft a good looking QB with one of it's 1st round picks, we are doomed to this kind of play till sh*t turns to gold..
Again..why the hell would we want to throw Davis out there without at LEAST attempting to install the spread offense. I just dont get this mentality.
People would rather throw a emergency QB who hasnt taken a snap all season (game or practice) then clamor for the coaches to just install the spread offense (or at least tweak our offense so that we go 60%+ spread).
I'm telling you...u throw Nate in and its going to get even uglier. He will have initial success...(no game tape)...then he'll suffer like Shaun, Alex, etc because of the playcalling and o-line. Its just circular and pointless. We HAVE A SOLUTION to our problems and its OPENING up the offense and PLAYING TO OUR players strengths. Why dont you all urge for that as opposed to.."lets throw off everyones timing, chemistry, etc by putting in a QB who's NEVER thrown a pass to any of these guys."
I'm not saying start Davis, I'm saying let's take a look at him now and then.
I agree opening up the O is one answer, and maybe coming out to start the game with intensity on both sides of the ball would be a good idea.
But have you checked out what Smith said today? He says "it's impossible to go to a spread" because it's the middle of the season. He says this even though it's the only time he is successful; ie, in the spread.
Why the weasel talk, why not grow a pair and say, You know what, I play best and make my reads better and connect with my receivers when I'm in the spread, it's what I know. I'm going to go the coach's office as soon as we are back in SJ and have a talk with Raye and Sing about doing what's best at this point, SINCE we have nothing to lose.
But no, he goes with the company line. If you read this, you have to say to yourself, this is the way he plays most of the time too. Tentative, unsure, trying to please rather than letting it all hang out, etc, ad nausua.
And The Legend of Our Motivator Singletary grows further.. not.
