Braylon beat his cornerback and had position on him. There are several other QB's in the league that could have completed that pass. And he led Vernon too much on one of the few times he attempted a pass longer than 5 yards. I can add one more, on the play towards edwards in the endzone, it was a bad pass. The 9ers got lucky that the defender grabbed Edwards because it was a bad throw by smith.
This performance may have been driven by the coaches in limiting alex but in the few spots he could have made a play alex didn't. I hope the 49ers open up their passing game or gore will be facing 8 in the box all year.
No, it was a bad pass. There should have been illegal contact on the defender but Alex threw the ball too far for Vernon to track it down. I was impressed that Alex threw the ball to the proper shoulder (Vernons) but the pass was 5 yards too far.
