Everyone should know that the QB has a lot of responsibility and with that you got to take accountability that's all I'm saying. I want a QB that can perform in CRUNCH time when the team really need him to step up and get the W and he failed miserably.

Out of the 3 drives he took the team down the field, his TEAMMATES failed him TWICE. Enough said.

The fact that we were going deep on 3rd down with 50 seconds left is on Raye.

Keep nitpicking on Alex Smith. Your posts are foolish and it's no wonder you have little support.

-9fA

All that matters is the W and he has yet to do it when the games count, I just want you to open your eyes cause he's always been like that.

Actually its Alex, Crabtree and VD that went to Singletary and Raye that we should run the spread and I remember Singletary said that they have to take the responsibility. We need a balance offense but the fans and players sometimes think they know more than the coaches which it showed in this game that balanced = Wins

We as a TEAM haven't been in many games that count. It's not just Alex. It's also the WRs, the o-line and even the coaches.

I agree with the move to the spread only because this team cannot run block at all. We tried running Gore when Hill was there, remember? We couldn't move the ball at all. I think you've forgotten how bad this offense was when we put the ball primarily on Gore's hands.

-9fA

Gore ran over 200 yards with this o-line against this team!

We got to go with team to team Match up. This was a bad Seahawks team and we should of ran all over them like last time.

I'm glad Singletary is given Alex a chance but the spread will not be successful in this league.

No that was a bad pass.

THE BLOODY THROW HIT HIM IN THE FACEMASK.

-9fA

The game was based on the last drive not the missed catch guys, If that's the case the miss catch from branch should of been a TD but he didn't catch it. It's football mistakes happen, Alex managed the last drive very poorly with terrible throws. He still has not performed under pressure and that has been my issue with him. Can he get the W when the games count? Still has not proved it to me and won't this season!

Hope there getting Nate Davis some reps for the last 2 games of the season cause were not going anywhere.

My apologies, jdt84_2. I'm just really emotional right now.

Yes, you can say this and that. But at the end of the day, the players around Smith did not help him out at ALL. 10 dropped passes. Are you kidding me?

Gore's fumble is on Alex Smith as well, huh? Smith drove us from the 1 yard line on that drive only for Gore to cough it up when we were in FG range.

-9fA
With the game on the line, Smith drove the team 125 yards on separate drives, one starting on his own two yard line, only to have Gore fumble on one and then first Davis and then Crabtree not catch well thrown balls on the second.

After that, it is disingenuous to say Smith didn't perform well under pressure.

Although the loss stings bad..Alex is definitely looking like he has "it" now. What's killing us now is the lack of run blocking. The lack of run game. I'm very happy with the way our pass game is shaping up, particularly with the way Alex is starting to take command of it.

Agreed. I think today's game was a good indicator of why we need to be balanced. We could have used Gore more today - and i put a LOT of that on the run blocking.

It was great that Alex could throw even when we and the Seattle defense knew we would, but Gore left a big void.

-9fA

I agree we need to be balance I don't know why people here start screaming SPREAD = Wins. This is not college it the NFL.

Gore rushed over 200 yrds over this team with the same o-line but yet we didn't run the ball because Alex, Crabtree and VD wanted to use the spread and Singletary said that they got to take responsibility for that.

That saying I don't believe Alex is the Quarterback of the future.

Alex shouldve had 4 tds and 350 + yds and its because of dropped passes in endzone that were in the WR hands

Dont matter that was against the Seahawks that formula won't work with the good teams you gotta be balanced. Don't believe Smith is the future QB of this team.

The fact that fans and players think they know more than the coaches is just hilarious but yet Singletary change his still cause media was screaming to do it.

Love Singletary he's trying to find the identity of this team and it's in the process. Smith is a Spread Qb and in this league it wont work multiple formation and balance are key to success and it has been shown over the years.

I get what your saying...and, wtf.....do you have some magical run blocking you can loan him? It's pretty f**king simple at this point...the o-line needs upgrading, the rest of the offense including Smith is going to be alright. Once the run blocking is fixed, then you can mix it up, not before then.

Fact is, Smith can operate from under center. He's not "nonfunctional" when under center. As I recall, he was able to make some good throws while he was under center today and against Jacksonville as well.

We have found an scheme on offense that works, yet i have cannot understand why you want to chuck that all away.

Well dude Gore ran over 200 yards with this same O-line but got 9 carries today which really did not make any sense. Were not going anywhere with Smith in my opinion we are just using him because Hill stinks and at least for this season Smith can run the spread. But long term he is not the solution at QB in my opinion of course.

Outside of 2 runs, Gore did nothing. Outside of 4 runs this season, Gore has done nothing.

We have a boom or bust running game that busts more often than not.

Smith is clearly the starter going into 2010. Get over your hate of Smith.

Stop falling all over yourself over a QB who's good at loosing.

Why do so many people constantly spell losing "loosing".

i thinks thats be called a lack uh edukayshun. Just like whens theys misuse they're, their, there and affect and effect.

Alot of that has to do with the playcalling IMO. If we could just run a sweep or even a counter instead of this constant 'up the gut' BS those numbers may be different.

Smith can't do it consistently and has shown it in his career that is why we are favoring the spread because that's the only formation he is comfortable with.

We do it all the time dude those teams don't. Don't compare Manning, Brees and Brady to Smith dude are you insane? Broncos are a balanced team and is 11th in rushing! Saints are 5th in rushing! Colts are last in rushing and it just shows you why Manning is the MVP of this league he is going to be the best QB of all time.

That makes sense, he only threw the touchdowns out of the pro formation.

Love Singletary he's trying to find the identity of this team and it's in the process. Smith is a Spread Qb and in this league it wont work multiple formation and balance are key to success and it has been shown over the years.

I get what your saying...and, wtf.....do you have some magical run blocking you can loan him? It's pretty f**king simple at this point...the o-line needs upgrading, the rest of the offense including Smith is going to be alright. Once the run blocking is fixed, then you can mix it up, not before then.

Well dude Gore ran over 200 yards with this same O-line but got 9 carries today which really did not make any sense. Were not going anywhere with Smith in my opinion we are just using him because Hill stinks and at least for this season Smith can run the spread. But long term he is not the solution at QB in my opinion of course.

I would agree Gore should have had more carries. I don't agree about the 200 yards on this same o-line part. That's because his rushing for 200 was just as much a product of lousy d-line as it was a lousy o-line. Gore was helped by the Seattle defense in a big big way last time...mainly Mebane not playing and Babs screwing the pooch not once but twice, because he was only a situational player prior to that game. That line is completely different with Mebane in it (he's a run stuffing stud and a disruptive mother f**ker), and Babs has improved considerably. In fact, the whole Seattle run defense has improved quite a bit since then. Besides, Gore really hasn't been able to do s**t this year...the run blocking is s**t s**t s**t and there really is no argument about that. You would have to be pretty jaded in your opinion to not see that.

I really don't see Sing, Raye and Smith soley playing this type of football any longer than they have to. I just don't see it. In the future, we can run the ball out of the shotgun, teams do it all the f**king time. So it's simply not true that having Alex in the shotgun with receiver's spread all over the place means we won't be able to run the rock, that we can't have balance. Not true at all, not even close. What is true...is that without any running blocking you can't have balance whether your in the shotgun or under center. That is where we are, we have no run blocking, end of story.

The spread sure seems to work for: Colts, Patriots, Broncos and the Saints.

Fact is, Smith can operate from under center. He's not "nonfunctional" when under center. As I recall, he was able to make some good throws while he was under center today and against Jacksonville as well.

We have found an scheme on offense that works, yet i have cannot understand why you want to chuck that all away.

Smith can't do it consistently and has shown it in his career that is why we are favoring the spread because that's the only formation he is comfortable with.

We do it all the time dude those teams don't. Don't compare Manning, Brees and Brady to Smith dude are you insane? Broncos are a balanced team and is 11th in rushing! Saints are 5th in rushing! Colts are last in rushing and it just shows you why Manning is the MVP of this league he is going to be the best QB of all time.

The QBs don't compare sure, but the offenses do. And yes, we have found a QB that can successfully run the spread.

Before, it was "Alex sucks because of his play".

Now, it's "Alex sucks because he only succeeds in the spread".
