I think the back shoulder throw to Williams is a big step up for Smith. Also, the throw to Vernon on a dime along the sideline. He threw it off his back foot, and threw it early, before Vernon was at full speed; that showed great anticipation.

I think there are certainly some improvements.

definitely. never seen him hit a back shoulder throw like that before.

He actually started doing it last year. I can remember one in particular where he he Vernon on a back should throw. I want to say it was against the Bucs.

2012 - The best I've ever seen and still ascending.

Hang in there. He is still learning the system and hasn't changed coordinators for two years in a row. He's only going to get better

That was dumb ass Lomas Brown, and mella8 Alex beat the Giants in the reg season last year when they were contenders and were good, and surprisingly Alex passed the ball a lot due to Frank getting hurt. So its not like anyone who has been watching is still waiting for Alex to step up against a contender, i know you just came over from the GB forums this year, and i mean that in no bad way, but Alex led some wins against top playoff teams last year. It might not always be pretty but since the start of last season, Alex's team has the most wins of any starting QB to have played the same span.


It matters not. Alex Smith was labeled a "game manager" last year, even though he had games where he led from the front. This year is his opportunity to shed that label and become the team LEADER. He can do that by showcasing his progression in the WCO. I wanna see the Niners win BECAUSE of him, not in spite of him. He's done a good job against some opponents this year, but based on records --- they're all noncontenders (except MIN). Lets see him go up against a real team.

Alex is already regarded as a leader by... well, the main players on the team and their HC.

We play the teams on the schedule and aside from that we are a contender no matter who we play we show up and give em a tough game. I don't think this team is lacking from having not played and beaten quality opponents this year. I don't think anyone in this league will look at the 49ers and say hey we can beat them, they haven't played anyone. And the only thing Alex has left to prove is to win a championship. As for stats and numbers he puts up, well you can't please everyone, but when you win as Eli has, you shut up a lot of people in your own fan base.

ESPN is WAYYYYYY over-rated. I stopped watching their pregame show. NFL network's version is much better.

Fox has a better pregame show.

yeah man, jamie dukes is where it at. no bias there

Pretty much this.
Call me bat s**t crazy but I really for first time ever believe Alex can get us there and win the big game. He looks like a top 10 qb out there. Not to mention Davis looks scary good this year scoring a td almost every game so far. Gore looks fresh and rejuvenated out there and hitting the hole hard. Aldon and Justin are wrecking havoc again. Alex can beat Brady and Eli and Peyton.

And his co hosts agreed with him. This program lost a lot of credibility with me!
