Is our defense stunting the offense's development?

if anything, i want the defense to bring it to the O. it will only make them better.

its well known that defenses get it together before offenses, and in the 9ers case, its even more obvious cuz the defense hasnt experienced the discontinuity the offense has. but playing against a good D will only make the team better.

Why do people keep making excuses for the offense's lack of production? OMG ITZ CAUSE THE DEFENSE IS TOO GOOD.
Why can't it be regular season yet?
TC.... I think Jimmy Raye feels you're on to something...

Alex Smith and 49ers offense is opening practice on a hot streak.

Smith having a strong practice. Just hooked with Ginn for 45 yrads and Walker for another big gain. Going against 3rd team D, however

hopefully they build some rhythm....
ummm if anything going against a good defense should make our offense better, not worse

No, Jimmy Raye is.

You practice against better opponents and you elevate your own game ------ it just makes you stronger.

Alex's inaccuracy is stunting the offensive development not to mention hurting our players. His overthrows already hurt Crabtree and Vernon and almost got D walker laid out on that high pass into triple coverage. The frustrating thing is he can be accurate at times and other times he makes some horrible trows. Jimmy Raye said today that he already knows Nate can hit a wide open WR but needs to see how he plays while they are covered. The sad part is we don't really know if Alex can hit our WRs when they are wide open all of the time.

You need to add words like consistently to your sentences. We do know that Alex Smith can hit wide open targets. He was among the league leaders in accuracy in passes over thirty yards last season, ahead of guys like Manning. Did you see his strike to VD to tie the TE TD record last season?

No better competition makes you better. The only thing you could say about having to play a tough schedule is that you get pounded on every week and you don't get a chance to catch your breath. However, in practice, if the DL is blowing past or thru the OL then the OL has to get better schemes, players and techniques in place. If DBs are playing tight, then the WR as to learn to deal with it. That way if they play a team that is not as fast, tight and strong as our own team it is a walk in the park. If they do, then they are used to it.

That is why QBs from college have a hard time throwing, cause the DBs are faster and the separation between the DB and WR are tighter, so they don't throw and the QB coach yells at them its not going to get any more open than that.

did you see him miss a wide open VD, did you see him cause VD to get an injury.

I made this point in the OP and a lot of people have said it since. I completely agree, but I still wonder if the defense is keeping the offense from looking as sharp as it could in practice.
no if u go back to the ravens sb year they had the top defense and a average offense and the 49ers look somewhat like that
