No they're not. Pass rush is not just about sacks. A QB scrambles because he's under pressure, not just for the hell of it. Locker did quite a bit of scrambling sunday. Sometimes he got away, more often he threw the ball away which makes it a dead play and a job well done.
Our pass rush is, indeed, noticeably better with Smith, but it's doing just fine at the moment. If it weren't, our secondary would be getting toasted on a regular basis.
