Alex Smith can always serve as the scapegoat for an under-performing receiver but explain this one to me...
Everyone on this board would/should agree that Vernon Davis is the best/only receiving threat this team has had since Terrell Owens.
Now let's consider that in Singletary's prehistoric offense, VD tied the record for most TD's in a season for a TE.
Let's also consider Davis' historic performance in the playoffs of 2011 (not to mention the fact that he came around big-time towards the last few weeks of the season).
This to me, negates the "Alex Smith is his QB" argument. Davis is the only star we've had catching passes since T.O. and he has had a couple pro-bowl seasons.
If Crabs was the talent he was touted to be, he'd be up there too. But he's not. Teams focus on Davis and Gore and Crabs is still lucky to get a 100 yd game once a year against a team like the Rams.
Again, I'll root for the guy until the cows come home, but the writing is on the wall. He's not very good when it counts.
