***SF 49ERS VS. OAK RAIDERS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Week 2)***

Agreed. For only having that short of a time, i was impressed. What was most impressive was how the second teamers looked. Grant, Kilgore, Hunter, Edwards, Culliver all made a case to make the squad.
On the INT it looked like Smith had his eyes downfield on what the CBs were doing threw the ball without expecting Shaughnessy being there in zone and didn't see him till after he chucked it.

It's all on Smith but I would've been more worried about the INT if it was a bad throw. In this case I think it's something that wouldn't have happened in a regular season game with a week of film study and prep.

I second this notion.

Shaughnessy turned around and ran to his zone then hovered there and Smith threw it right to him. It was a terrible interception, not a good play by the defense. Smith needs to see that or if he saw it, not make the throw.

It was a simple int most members on this zone could have made.

Watch the video....On Smith's hitch, he looks right at the defender. Either Smith thought he could get it over the DE or Smith didn't see him. Either way, that's a bad play by the QB. The correct throw was underneath the DE to Walker on the short cross.

Leave it to you to harp on the one bad play from Smith. Feel better now? I wasn't suggesting that it was a good play or decision. Just that if a QB is reading from right to left, and doesn't expect a DE on the left to drop back so deeply... that it's more understandable. Still, not saying it's a good thing. I watched the 2nd half, and only bits and pieces of the 1st. Sounds like Smith had a pretty good game that should have been better if there were 3 passes not dropped. I'll enjoy watching it recorded from NFLN in the morning to see everything. What did you think? Did Smith look pretty good with the better OL blocking? How did you feel when he made some nice plays? Happy or upset?

Has a good arm though. And accurate. He's not awed by the game.

This can only be tamed/polished through 'live-action' experience; playing one game after the other, catching up with the speed of the game. -It's like being a teenager all over again, driving a newer model car with overly-smooth power-steering for the first time; more you drive and get used to it, the more handling it becomes second nature.

Edit: Also, you cannot blame the first sack on Kaep, Goodwin blew a stunt, plain and clear, even gave up after he was blown (didn't even care to hold onto his guy as the NT came rushing towards his QB). -What a joke, is Goodwin serious about playing for this team, or is he just taking this job as a retirement luxury cause he already has a ring?

OK. I do agree with you.

In only his second NFL experience, it's a bit much to expect him to be completely up to speed with the NFL game. I also agree, unlike most, that he'll get better much quicker with actual game experience. From what I've seen he's mentally tough enough to handle that. Although, at first, it would be a painful experience for the fans, it would get the team to where it needs to get a lot faster. Now THAT prospect would get me excited. M Ryan. Flacco. McCoy. Bradford. Etc.

With the other guy . . . well, "if you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got". He's been tutored by three Super Bowl winning coaches to no avail. I hope the current coaching regime doesn't continue the mistakes of those who have gone before.

That was just a great play by the DE. If the RB lines up on the other side of Smith, thats a first down as the DE would of had to account for the flat. He sprints to the first down marker and turns around just in time, Smith should make that throw every time as the odds are that a DE will not make the play. Its funny people pointing to the "correct read" as DW, when they dont even know the play. If Smith goes to DW, he gets tackled short of the 1st down and people jump on Smith for being captain checkdown. It was 3rd & 8 and Smith went to the quick read that was a first down, he didnt hold onto the ball for a sack and he didnt check it down to a 6 yard pass when they needed 8. Sometimes players just make great plays, that was a great play.

You brought the play up. I was just responding to your comment about how its "easy to understand how a QB wouldn't have expected to see a DE there."

Alex has been in the league for 7 years. He has seen that type of coverages many many times before.

And since you didn't watch it yet let me tell you somthing to look out for. Smith did have a nice game and had success mainly going deep to the sidelines. He rarely threw over the middle. The one time he did made a nice throw, Edwards made a nice grab, and then the defender makes a nice play to knock the ball out. I'm not saying this is a bad thing so don't take it that way.

Now, with having so much success with the sidelines (Morgan deep left, Edwards deep sideline, Edwards are a short curl) The raiders started covering the sidelines and left the middle open. The drop back in coverage should have been expected at that point. And you have to look where you throw don't you? The DE was standing right there.

Smith did have a good game besides that. His best plays were the one where the launched it deep to morgan while taking a hit and then slid around in the pocket and threw it over the middle. This is what Smith haters want to see more of. None of that run to the sideline and throw it away or be the check down king.

The perfect pocket wont alway be there, he needs to make more plays like the ones to morgan and the pocket shifting one and less of the picks.

And about my feelings, this isn't Oprah. I root for the niners to win no matter what.

And btw,you hate on 49er players as well.
