While I didn't think Smith played well today, he won the game at the end by making the right decision to throw to Walker. I understand your not wanting to give him credit but if you are fair you will admit this play was gutsy and, as Harbaugh said, Clutch! A lot of very good QBs had subpar days Sunday, Brady with an unusual 80 QBR and two Ints. Rogers had is standard lights out day. Many on this board wanted Grossman over Smith last year...argh!
So, for the guys who wanted anyone but Smith (were you in this group?)--who is having a better year and was available? I like Matt Hasselbeck but his QBR is .7 better than Smith, two more Ints, and his team is 3-2 as opposed to the 9ers 5-1...and he is injury prone. He's it from what I can see. Orton and Kolb near the bottom weren't the answer.
So, celebrate and be happy!
