The way this team is playing they will lose the next two games and maybe beat the Rams, and that will put them at 3-4 seed and have to play the first week of the palyoffs and they will loose. This team is not ready for the playoff yet. They need to beef up the o_line in the off season and quite frankly I am tired of the Alex Smith experiment.
Well, if he keeps this up, the experiment won't last past this season. Then again, there might be another one, next season - much to your chagrin! And, honestly, I wouldn't mind that. One: Kaepernick will have a season and change under his belt. Two, if Smith doesn't show progress from this season to next (no, not from this game to the next - thinking big picture here), then he may step in, or Tolzien will. People can talk all they want about Peyton Manning, but I think he's proof an organization can't put that much authority in the hands of one guy, and not have a suitable backup in case that person goes down (see Colts' 0-13). Also, I don't think Roman, or Harbaugh would relinquish playcalling duties like that
regardless if it was Peyton, or not.
