To me, he was the same Alex Smith we've seen for the past couple years: smart, generally responsible with the football, tough.
The difference today was that Harbaugh/Roman put him in a position that let him build confidence and succeed.
It'll be interesting to see if/how the offense and Alex grows over the course of the season. I'm an Alex Smith supporter, and I'm happy he had a good game today... and I'm happy we started off this season on a high note. With a truncated off-season, we can only hope that Alex and the offense can improve.
90.4 - it was Against Seattle for one and He usually plays well in first games , we'll see what he does against a Better Dallas Defense......I wish him luck but Consistency is not in his Short list of Talents.
-124 yards passing
-1/12 on 3rd down, granted, a lot of those were rushing, but still, smith wasn't asked to convert a lot of those (especially the re-do at the 1-yard line)
-however many passes it was that went for negative yardage
0 sacks. 0 turnovers. took the hits in the pocket and was accurate. that's what you should be talking about
