Not a reason to be concerned about Alex Smith so much. But yes, a reason to be concerned. We dismissed these things with Nolan, who used to famously say, "It doesn't matter HOW we win, just as long as we win." I hope no one agrees with that. Because 1-0 doesn't mean a thing if you don't make the playoffs. Whether or not you make the playoffs depends upon how well you PLAY. How well you PLAY is what matters. Our offense can't be s**t. It must be better than it was today if we are to have a chance this season.
If we try and beat the Cowboys with Andy Lee, Ted Ginn and defense, we are in for a rude awakening.
Do you really think Harbaugh believes he can beat Dallas without a functioning Offense?
Of course he doesn't. Harbaugh just didn't feel it was necessary to risk opening up he offense and have the players fail at something they just recently learned. So instead, he chose to keep it very simple ( i agree, questionable gameplan), rely on the D and ST. Those two came up big for us, the D with the turnovers and sacks and the special teams with those 2 Ginn returns and Akers perfect kicking. Add in a couple of plays made by Smith in the run game on his own, and a few nice pass plays, and you have yourself a win against a weak team. This was the gameplan. This was what Harbaugh thought would be enough to win us the game in these unfortunate circumstances due to the lockout, but it worked. Don't expect us to do the same s**t next week. I'm sure Harbs/Roman/Fangio don't think he Cowboys are the same team as the Seahawks.
