What bothers me is coming off such a resounding defeat by the Giants I was expecting the Niners to be pissed off and pound the Hawks but that's not what happened only 13 points scored and mediocre play again this won't cut in the play off's

Well obviously the QB didn't have a great day and the receivers weren't getting open for the routes that were being called. Give some credit where it's due, the Seahawks have an excellent defense. As for the other phases of the game, what are you talking about? The defense held the Seahawks to 6 points, the o-line did a great job run blocking, and Gore gashed a team which has been averaging 71 yards per game rushing. This is not last years Seahawks. I would love if our QB was Steve Young 2.0 but that's not the case. It wasn't 3 years ago that our coach was making headlines for pulling his pants down in public for heck's sake. :)

You mean the latest rookie who is so much better than Smith? LOL!
I actually thought he played OK but when they dropped so many of his passes he became a bit desperate to make something happen. Similar to Smith's interception after CK came in for a one yard loss.
As much as I think CK's insertion throws Smith off, he has to learn to play past that and stay in a zone...ignore the disruption. He always seems to come back in pressing, and making mistakes.
Seattle's D was/is considered one of the best and it was another brutal game. Lots of banged up players. They are third in points per game, behind Chicago and SF.
Explain to me how calling a running play with a different QB in the game disrupts a flow Alex Smith never had? If he can't play through that then he truly is garbage.
Russell Wilson is well on his way to being better than Smith. Andy Dalton is better than Smith. Luck and RGIII are better than Smith. Newton is better than Smith. Tannehill will be better than smith in a year or two as well. Smith may throw less interceptions than these guys this year but I guarantee you he won't make as many plays as any of them
We need more physical play from our receivers. Crabtree did some good physical stuff last night. Williams, Ginn, and to some extent Manningham just isn't the physical type. Being able to fight through those uncalled little holding, shoving, redirecting is critical in the passing game.
I understand what your saying bzborow1 and yes we got the W but I'm looking at the bigger picture I see the same issues plague our offense game after game kinda goes like this:
opening drive we start off hot get down field and blow it
3 and out 3 and out 3 and out
then the penalties start
AS gets all rattled throws INT
Defense and running game have to work overtime to try to bail us out
