Yeah, seriously, aside from the terrible run blocking, our o-line kept Alex Smith clean today. As a result, he had his best overall game as a 49er.
Spreadcoast offense here to stay?
I hope so, but we'll have to see what Sing and Raye do now. They cannot be that blind to see that their stuff don't cut it and the Spread is the best thing for this team to run. Work in some end rounds some delays some screens(the one thing that Alex really needs to work on his timing for) and some Trap dives. I think that those are the best for working within the scope of the Spread. Especially the Screen. Move Frank if you want to incorporate him into End Rounds.
And how bout that TE waggle for the TD from Duke? Man I almost thought that they were gonna give Alex a naked boot on that play but it was sweet to see Duke get a team record 9th TD on the season in this game. He's not our best. YET. But he deserves some mad props for having a hell of a season.
