That probably caused a hell of a lot of frustration in past years. Smith's not the greatest QB but he's definitely smart...so why not use that to our advantage.
No doubt about it and even the most hated Smith "fans" will agree with you on this point. Perhaps we should have one of the Matt's ask this very question of Harbaugh/Roman. If you're going to let the defense dictate the play, take advantage of it with the passing game and weapons we have. And then start watching the running game open up for Gore/Hunter. This is not a hard concept esp. for an intelligent, 7 year vet with the playbook on his wrist to refer to.
