The balanced offense thread of balance.

Yeah. Way to check it to runs Smith. Attah boy....

He does more than just throw da ball He heard the Zone said he's limited so he checked into a run instead to once again be hidden in Harbaugh's offense.

"should've not read the defense and just Tony Romo'd it!!" ( fired from the hip). I for one am glad that we have a QB that can recognize defenses and check down to a run if it works...apparently a 245 yrd run game works.

That's the thing that worries me. Last year, they were guilty of trying to square peg a round hole, both within the season and within individual games. I understand why they try to do that, but I still don't get it. This team performs best within the West Coast philosophy, if not by prototypical West Coast tactics. Additionally, I believe it was Jref22 that noted running the ball runs the clock and keeps the D fresh. I think that's a key point when you're trying to maximize the strengths of this team against the strengths of an opponent.

Anyway, we've already had our nose stung by trying to get pass happy this year, I hope the lesson has finally sunk in.

Sucks when our pass puts us at a disadvantage ... Glad we have some decent RBs

Yeah, a short list of all Young_Montana's post, very insightful




Will Moss Block: Sign T.O back he'll block

Kaepernick 2012: Captain check down can't win us a Super Bowl throwing for 100 yards a game. Start Kap.


Moss only got one pass thrown his way: Randy would get more balls thrown his way if captain check down wasn't the starting QB, Colin or Scott can do a better job that's all I'm saying.

2009: Rex Ryan comments about 49ers: Rex Ryan would have been fired if Alex Smith was his QB.

The Defense Thread: Defense looks great! Alex Smith still plays like doo doo damn shame.

More Wildcat: Call our wildcat Gold Rush.


Please go away!

We all started a bit ornery, trying to make our mark. I'm sure he'll come around.

That was a nice way of doing a head check. Not sure if I agree with the "please don't come around," but you gotta cut rookies some slack. Now, whose got duct tape?

"duct tape"?!! Now that sounds like the good 'ol fashioned hazing I'm used to.

I think "disadvantage" is more of a glass half full/empty kind of thing.

It's still early days, but it seems to me that the key story of this year is the arrival of Singletary's big, brutish, blunt force trauma O-line. Those draft picks have finally fleshed out and they're starting to hit on all cylinders. This is a unique weapon in a pass-happy, trend-following league. Better yet, its an asymmetrical weapon against defenses that are primed to stop the pass. For better or worse, this is the way the team is built, currently. So you have to maximize what it's good at, rather than trying to square peg a round hole.

Qnnhan7 raised a nice point in Marvin's post-game post about how effective Smith has become at audibling against defenses. I heartily agree that Smith isn't one of the league's most talented passers, but he is demonstrating that he is among the smartest. Sure he has trouble floating in a delicate sideline pass, but he calls a great game at the line of scrimmage. Moreover, he's got a solid boxer's sensibility. That is, as the old boxing adage goes, you "keep punching the cut eye." If a defense cannot stop the run, you run the ball until they stop you, and when they commit to stopping the run, you gore them with a pass. Outside of the Vikings game, he's been remarkably good at taking what the defense gives him and punishing them for doing so. It's not a sexy way to win, but it's a good result.

Last year, I would have agreed with your remark, but we've seen what Smith is capable of, when necessary. This year, I'm more interested in avoiding the "when necessary." This is a talented football team that should play to its strengths, and I hope it continues to do so.
