How much are Harbaugh, Edwards, West Coast Offense, etc. worth to Alex Smith's game?

Smith isnt anywhere near having the kind of mentality that Joe had
Speculate much?
All of this is moot if the Seahawks sell out on a few plays and send the house on blitzes. They knock Alex out with another shoulder or knee injury and win the game because we don't have a decent back up. Carroll knows that he doesn't have as much talent as the Niners and the best way to win is to put Alex in the hospital. Our line had better have their game faces on or the season is toast. Petey boy will do ANYTHING to win and especially if it's against JH.

Please thats just a poster making s**t up and nothing else. Its obvious to see that theyre far apart on mental make up. Montana was never rattled enough to forget his fundementals. Montana was never called a cowardly lion by his teammates. Theres just so much wrong with that comparison that only a Alex fan would type it out. Just where in the realm of football does Alex come close to Joes mental type The only things Alex shares with Montana are hes QB and hes playing for the 49ers

You guys are running away with a phrase taken out of context from a more involved post. He was comparing the Smith as having the same mental need as Montana to have a good offensive system to operate since both are not the gunslinger, gamble type.

Not sure if it has any diuretic properties, but it definitely tastes better.

We should change the question. The team, not an individual player, is the priority.

So maybe a better question would be: What does Alex have to bring to the team?

I can think of four things.

1. He has to start 16 games.

Last year, Alex played in only 11 games. He started 10 of them.
The team needs him to play well enough and stay healthy enough to start all 16 games.
For him to stay healthy and play well, the team will have to protect him.

2. His touchdown to interception ratio needs to improve.

Last year, he threw 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Critical elements that will lead to this improvement: better ball placement and no stupid throws.

But, in all honestly, some of the picks were not his responsibility. The receivers must also step up. If the ball hits their hands, they have to catch it. If the throw is close but not on target, the receivers have to go get it. To some degree they may have to carry Alex—and yes good receivers do that.

3. He has to throw for more 1st downs.

Last year, only 30.1 % of his passes resulted in first downs. Last year, the team was 25th in time of possession. More first down throws, will improve our time of possession. Gore will get more touches and the receivers will get more attempts—the offensive skill players will be more productive and a lot happier.

4. Alex needs to improve his completion %.

Last year, he completed 59.6 on his passes. Last year, the play-off quarterbacks completed 63.2% of their passes in the regular season.

If Alex can do these four things, we might surprise a lot of people.

This season, or any season, is not just about Alex Smith or any individual player. It is about the team.

We need to ask: What does a player bring to the team? How each player and each unit contribute to the team and its success?

3 and 4 are almost a guarantee with the WCO. In the past, the passing game was used only in desperate times. In WCO, the pass is an integral part of the offense and is designed to move the chains, not have to pick up 18 yards to keep a drive alive.

Ignore him. His filter is screwed down so tight his reading comprehension is near ZERO.
