GreenBay 63 - 49ers 3. Sorry this is gonna be ugly
Lmao. And I'm guessing you think it'd be vice versa if your boy Alex played?
It would be more competitive if we where in the shotgun and didnt try to run power O every play. The only QB on our roster that can efficiently run the shotgun (primarily) is Alex Smith. If we had a better QB then fine. Troy Smith is as accurate as A. Smith out of the gun. Stats show that
Meant to sayTroy Smith ISNT as accurate as A. Smith out of the gun. Stats show that
Have you thought about the fact that most of the time Alex Smith was in the shotgun was when we were down by a lot late in the game when defense were playing soft. I don't say this to knock on Smith, just that we never really abandoned Sing's retarded run first philosophy until we were down by a lot.
This happened in the first Seattle game, late in the KC game where he picked by decent yards when were down 31-3, and obviously the Philly game. Although I will say that he played really good after that dumbs**t fumble in the Eagles game.
Dont forget about the Saints game this year. 2009 he played well against the Texans, Arizona, and his stats in the GB game last year (16/33, 227 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT)
Lol dude you're just proving my point! In last years Texans game, he came in when we were down 21-0, and Houston was playing prevent. He was easily able to pick up yards. And in the GB game last year, he played well, but just like in the Texans game, AFTER we were down like 23-3...
You get what I'm saying?
Texans game he came in beginning of the 3 quarter. Teams do not run soft or prevent with 2 quarters left in a game down by only 21. GreenBay game was mostly on Smith because Gore only had 7 attempts the whole game. No balance
Dude, they were playing soft. And what do you mean by 'only 21'? Thats three scores. Generally, when a team is up by 21, they'll stop sending blitzes and play prevent or some sort of prevent.
Name one time where Smith was able to play well under the shotgun from the BEGINNING of the game. And you can't say this years Saints game because we didn't play out of the spread that game. We ran a lot of 2 tight end sets ( this being part of the reason we were able to run with Gore so well)
