That was an excuse, no way around it. Alex Smiths last 2 games, 300 yards, 1 td, 4 interceptions.

He had EVERYTHING working in his favor today and he couldn't make the seahawks pay. The first pass of the day was off target, and thats a rehersed play with Crabtree wide open in the flat. He was horrible on all but one drive. Not good enough any way you look at it.

Not good enough ANY way you look at it? We won the game, that's how I look at it.

yes he is both an idiot and betting on the game too

good post man, keep it coming

Rely on Alex Smith passing= 2 losses
Run the ball with Gore and company=wins
Alex needs everything to go right to function.

I've seen it done . It was drop kicked since you can't use a tee


Well Harbaugh still made the right decision to me, although we were up by 9. If they return on onside safety punt for a TD, then get an onside kick back, they can win in short amount of time, although highly unlikely, Harbaugh is still smart to take the ball and kneel it.

People went crazy on the "Randy Moss was wide open," play where Alex threw the pick (even Gore was pointing!) after Mayock went so heavy on it, but every angle I've looked at he was under duress, had no window, and there was no easy pass to him. I'd have preferred he just throw it away, run, or take a sack, but he was trying to be aggressive rather than passive, a criticism people constantly pepper him with.

Alex probably thought when he was pointing to Moss that he was calling for the ball. Probably an excuse but really a guy with his arms up 99,999/100,000 is calling the ball.

Who knows, maybe Gore's pointing lead the defender to cut off the pass?

CK was awesome if you consider getting your head knock off and disrupting the rhythm of the offense a food thing

Alexcuses!
Soapbox : Take it from an x-gambler, if you have a team and follow them closely you'll know one day they can't win or cover the spread. On that day you bet against "your team" and probably win. From that time onward your favorite team becomes George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and the Benjamin's. Before you start shouting, I'm talking about the guy that bets all the time, not the office pool or the Super Bowl yearly bettor.

Yea, possibly. It was the guy covering Gore that broke off for the pick. I don't want to blame Gore or anything, but pointing to another receiver will likely encourage the defender to break off covering you (maybe a new trick signal to call for the ball! ).

Ok. We won the game with terrible QB play. Hats off to the defense, offensive line and RBs. Alex better step his game up because he doesn't look much better than R Wilson right now

Keep in mind, VD got key in by SEA (Earl Thomas has VD # since Singletary was the HC), 49ers WR crop STILL stinks, and thus DW got the TD and Gore was the Gore was the top receiver since the underneath routes weren't covered.

I agree with relying on Smith to pass has not produced, but Smith's first two games were great as we did not abandon the run game. We somehow forced ourselves to be one dimensional in the two losses. I say we forced ourselves because we came out passing, they took the lead, and then we had to rely on the passing game when we were behind. We play the best when we come out running and able to stay 2 dimensional. He doesnt need everything to be perfect but needs the D to stay honest to both parts of the offense

We can bash Alex do death He definitely given us all the ammo too.. but no matter what he's still the 49ers number 1 QB so until Montana or Young come back I'm gonna root for him and if he' has to use a straw and shoot the ball out his arse to win then so be it... we just need that W

Do you guys ever go back through the gameday threads and make retro-active warnings/bannings? Sometimes it seems like some really obnoxious things may get lost in the flood of posts in the gameday threads.
Retroactive? Nah, unless we are researching an issue on a given poster. Hell, we stay busy enough with the stuff in real time.

Heat of the moment frustration, I feel it all the time.

Understandable, hence why the verbal address as opposed to the hammer.
