I agree, they did not seem prepared for the Saints defense..... Preseason or not, blitzing is part of the game, so they should have been more prepared than what we saw....... The line has to give who ever is behind center, time to step back and throw. Alex rarely got that chance against the Saints defense. The passes he did get off were rushed an wobbly..... Its a wonder Smith wasn't injured and put out for the season.
Kaepernick used mobility to create the time the line didn't provide. On that note Kaep had more success than Alex. That's the difference I saw in the two QB's.........
