Is our defense stunting the offense's development?

...I completely agree, but I still wonder if the defense is keeping the offense from looking as sharp as it could in practice.

The answer to this question is yes.

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?

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



VD landed awkwardly. the pass didnt do that. i also saw 13 perfect strikes to vern last yr.

VD landed akwardly because Alex couldn't put the ball on the numbers. I am not argueing that Alex can hit his targets. I know he can. The problem is sometimes he doesn't more often then you would like from a starting Qb. That is what kills drives and like the topic of this thread stunts our offensive development.
We should just neuter the defense and tell them they can't tackle in practice, make them count 5 allies before they come after the QB and penalize them for any contact like its a f**king basketball game.

But Alex would still suck...
