Have you Alex bashers forgotten how many passes he had on the money (a number for sure TD's) that were dropped...by Crabtree, Vernon, Morgan? It takes two to complete passes...the thrower and the receiver. There's room for improvement all around.
This is the best post in this thread. Something realistic and constructive. Makes a lot of sense.
It's the best post in the thread if you're looking to take some of the blame away from Alex Smith and spread it around.
VD drops balls because his hands aren't very good, but a lot of Crabtree's "drops" were due to the ball being placed in a bad spot. Watch the plays again. There weren't a whole lot of drops on easy TD catches like the post suggests. Crabtree dropped a few that he had no business dropping, but the frequency of that occurring is far lower than the frequency of Smith's passes being placed in a poor spot.
That's the way it should be, no? Because anything that goes wrong with the team, it's Smith's fault.
When Smith does ANYTHING right, It's "Smith would be nothing without Davis."
