you have got to understand football... If you watch the tape, alex can throw the ball as accurately as anyone in the league.. hes confident, poised, and playing just as good as people like tony romo. hes only 25 years old and comming off 2 years of no play.. dont be one of those idiot fans that are "what have you done for me lately" fans. then people go and blame smith for being 2-4, when he has become the bright spot on our team. Can you blame smith in GB and IND when our defense couldn't get the ball back with 6 mins to go in the 4th QTR? Can you blame smith in Seattle when he drove it all the way down and then gore fumbled, got the ball back and drove it again to have two passes dropped by his recievers? sing said it perfectly defending alex as he said "Its not like alex can throw the ball and go catch it too". Cool stat alert " alex smith has thrown over 90 or 100 passes w/out a pick."
Then people say things like "well frank gore is obsolete in the spread"
Trust me, singltary wants to run the ball. But lets face it. we cant. Take away frank gore big runs and we have the worst rushing attack in the league so can you blame them for not going to the air? we rushed 9 times for about 27 yards for another 3 yard per carry average day. If the o-line can guard for him, we will run the ball. Coach Sing SEES that we cannot block upfront with anyone, thus will not run the ball on 3rd or 4th and 1's. DO you blame him?? Hes MOVING the chains alot more consistently with Alex, and hes sticking to it.
Even though Sing is under a lot of scrutiny, I dont blame for it. These guys are NFL players not little kids, so they should be able to do a lateral when he tells them to. maybe it wasnt the best call, but when you have idiots back there that dont know how to do a simple lateral, the blame goes on the coach. wow.... If that would have worked, all of you people would be praising it. When me and my buddies play we do them all the time and they work lol.. im not comparing us to the NFL but all im saying is that there is no reason why you cant do a lateral in OPEN FIELD and then cant recover a fumble in OPEN FIELD either.
