If Harbaughs support develops some confidence hopefully we will see Alex blossom into a quality QB. If not we will see a game manager. If we could get 5-10 more completions a game it would be great. So we will see if Harbaugh gets some more action out of Smith.
hes had a couple of plays so far this year where u could tell in years past he wouldnt have made them, this being one of them, a play or two in the seattle game using his legs and also that play vs seattle where he threw to VD on the back shoulder on the sideline just out of reach of aaron curry. not an alex fan boy just pointing out i've seen a few examples of improvement
The single best play Smith has had as a pro. Even the ball cooperated by bouncing up to him! Thanks for posting this as many who did not see it will appreciate the athleticism and calmness (?) he displayed.
Hmm...perhaps this can be the way for Smith to get more than 1 second to throw the ball! Just hike it over his head, he runs back twenty yards and then throws a fifty yard pass. Sounds like a plan!

He has, the throw to Gore against the Seahawks in 2006.
Yeah, I think I remembered that one. Smith was in trouble, he spotted Gore with his hands up down the sideline. I think he rainbow the pass over one a defender to Gore, who went on to score. But this is Smith we are talking about so ... my glaucoma, degenerated muscle tissue grandpa could have made those.
