Our conservative offense is a function of the QB's capabilities. Our QB play is also therefore not a function of our conservative offense. The test is really simple: If we had Brees, Rodgers, or Manning, would our offense still be conservative? Not a chance in hell. We'd have a wide open offense and we would have gone to the SB with roller skates on. The conclusion is fairly obvious.
our conservative offense is a function of the head coaches philosophy. Ever watch a Stanford game? (i know the answer).
they will ignore this and say that same ting again in a different thread
Exactly. Dilfer was trying to explain the same thing to Colin Cowherd on his radio show earlier this week, and how the combination of Harbaugh's style and our limited personnel has led to disaster on 3rd downs.
Harbaugh did not run a conservative offense at USD. He uses his players to their strengths and clearly having an aggressive offense is not a strength of Smith.
I agree. I don't dont get this whole conservative offense is what Harbaugh is about. I was at the Stanford vs V Tech game. He ran the ball and threw quite a few times. I see a balanced offense, not a conservative. Whatever works he will do. Sorry you don't have a QB with Heismann hopes with a conservative offense. Conservative would be what Nick Saban at Alabama does.
If we ever get a star QB who ever it is, I would bet the Condo(dont own a house lol) that our offense would not look like how it is with Smith is in.
I think it would look the same, but that QB would be making the plays Alex Smith passed up [pun intended].
Meh. I see a balanced attack with Stanford. Of course they run the ball, but they do air it out also. I just think it depends who they play. But I definitely agree Smith is timid and wont try to make the big play unless its clearly open. You know how when VD has the LB beat by like 5 steps? lol
this is a horrible argument. Smith made countless throws this season in tight coverage. Stop making things up to support weak arguments. I can't believe how the rats have come back onto the ship after a pretty peaceful regular season.
Smith made tight throws to the only receiver with whom he had enough time to develop the timing and chemistry - Vernon Davis, and it took, by Vernon's own admission, 12 weeks before he understood the offense well enough to BEGIN running the correct routes. The Throw that beat NO was one example. Another against the Giants.
The passing game takes more time to develop than any other aspect of football. I have posted on here many about how Montana and Young both commented about how much work it took - how many hours it too, to get the timing and routes down before they began to work in the game.
When you go back and look at the overview of the season, it is a wonder the passing game worked at all. The Big News was Edwards and he bombed. Morgan only played 4+ games, Crabtree couldn't begin to practice full speed until week 12, VD didn't learn the offense until the season was 2/3 over, we finished the season with a waiver wire pickup and a practice squad guy on the active roster. Ted Ginn was a failure in Miami and came here only as a returner but due to the lack of talented backups became a starter. Kyle Williams was the #5 guy at the beginning of the season and got PT only because of injury....and all the failures are because of Alex Smith??? Some people need to study more football.
