Until the end, we were watching two of the ugliest offenses in the NFL operate. It was that awful...
By the way, while Smith deserves his credit, so do a couple of other offensive players. Vernon Davis, and Kendall Hunter both stepped up for the team and made big plays.
Agree. It is a team game and the D was HUGE.
Smith did some good things and had some good drives. BUT - he was more inaccurate then in weeks 1 and 2. Also, even with the O line issues, dude is checking down WAY TOO MUCH. I am very pleased but expect more.
