Smith recorded the best game of his career today, yet we still come out with a loss.
The last posession was awful, after performing well the whole game, Smith proves he still cannot deliver a finishing blow. The scant use of Gore was questionable, Crabtree better go back to B-ball if he is AFRAID to get hit, this is not a playoff team, the REFS did a Number on us, our receivers can't CATCH and our coaches cannot manage the clock. The way this game was officiated was disgusting, I was apalled when no one seemed to notice Delanie Walker being tackled in the END ZONE(ball in air). Mike Pereira better issue an apology personally, not only to the NINER Faithful, but to the NFL for possibly interfering with the playoff picture.
Smith had 2 receivers drop the go ahead touchdowns, not his fault at all.
So does that mean that he can throw our last posession away? Those throws came on our second to last posession, we had another "chance" with two timeouts 1:30 or so left in the game, this is the moment of the game that matters the most, and to me Smith choked. All we needed was 3yds for a 1st down, but he nearly throws an INT 20-30 yds downfield! not to mention his other trash throws in the same drive. The final 2 minutes of the game are the most critical, these are the times that your QB needs to show what he is made of, and he has failed in these situations all season.
We should have ran the ball on 3rd down. Iw would have forced them to burn a time out, or we would have got the first because they were not expecting it.
Bad play call in my opinion.
