smith isn't great. If he wants to be, he needs to hit more then he doesn't. Especially when we were down. I watched the rest, it was basically the same thing all game. Yeah he was under pressure, but when he wasn't he went for the short routes and also bailed from pockets unnecessarily.
our offense is built on short routes
joe montana saw the playbook during the offeseason last year before we stepped on the field this is what he said
According to Super Joe, "Jim's offense pretty much resembles a lot of what we ran with the old 49ers with Bill Walsh. Smith has to understand they're going to give him places to make plays. He doesn't have to try to throw the ball down field, he'll have a lot of options to work with. He has to learn he can drop the ball down for five or six yards and that's good. Completions are a big part of this".
and so far we have done a great job at that
we have the LEAST 3rd downs in nfl the least meaning we dont even have 3rd downs any mroe
we have 6th most yards per drive s
o per drive only 5 teams on average move the ball further down the field than us
were 7th in points per drive meaning only 6 teams score more points on average than us on a given drive
you can make the arguement we are top 10 in offense in both terms of yards and points
