Nice try! GB passes more and Rodgers makes riskier throws than SF and Smith. GB receivers drop as many passes as SF, they just have a third again as many chances to make the drops. They also defend against interceptions, which the SF receivers do not do effectively (Smith just doesn't throw into tight coverage). You seem intent on taking over the thread to speak against Smith at any opportunity, it would be interesting to know if you think the rest of the team are all probowlers or do they deserve some criticism?
Edit: Your comment regarding Smith calling time out every time teams blitz demonstrates you bias and leaves one to wonder how serious you are about reasonable discussion. Not very would be my guess.
Rodgers throws it 3 times as much as Smith? No. More, yes. 3 times as much? False, and hyperbole.
The Broncos seem to drop a lot of passes too. Wonder why? Has nothing to do with all the floaters Tebows throws, does it? Of course not! Denver has the worst receiving corps in the league!
As for the rest of the offense. We have a guy like braylon who had 1600 yards with Derek Anderson of all people. 900 with mark Sanchez in a run first offense. yet he comes here and sucks? Don't buy it. He's good. Inconsisent at times but good.
The TE duo we have in terms of a talent standpoint is the best in the league. 2 TE's that run 4.4's? Who else has that?
Crabtree is not fast but has shown this year when healthy he can create separation deep with double moves. I like him. Maybe not worth the top 10 selection, but he isn't bad.
Kyle Williams is a killer in the slot. Amazing quickness and good deep speed. Also plays bigger than his size.
The O-line is far from great. But good QB's make a line look better with a fast release and sound footwork in the pocket. Alex Smith does not have good footwork. Nor does he have a quick release.
I think a good QB would do wonders for the offense.
