Very Accurate? WTF Are you talkin about Harbaugh!?!?!?! The dude consistantly throws too high. The Moran Norris play in Seattle in week 1 is the definition of an Alex Smith throw.
Watch this play again and you see Norris turn around and backpedal as soon as the ball comes out of Alex's hand. Had he continued running straight it would have been a perfect over the shoulder throw and that is exactly what Alex saw and intended. So please don't fault someone that isn't at fault.
Look all you can say about that play is that it was a miscommunication. Was Norris supposed to continue running and catch the ball like a WR over the shoulder? Maybe, but that play was poorly designed to begin with. Maybe it is plays like those that has made Alex tentative to trust his recievers or throw them open.. who knows.
