They were exceptionally smooth in timing his throws. Most of the time he released his throw right when he hits his back foot on a drop. That is a testament to his successful pre-snap and post-snap defensive reads. When he didn't throw on his final step, he was perfect throwing on the hitch step(s) moving up in the pocket, meaning his anticipated throw wasn't there and "hitch, hitch" he is moving smoothly through his reads. There was zero happy feet or uncertainty displayed.
It was classic west coast smooth offensive execution. That is what looked different - and beautifully efficient. It is what we SF fans have been craving.
And despite my consistent support for Smith, it is just not in Smiths game. Smiths feet seem mechanical, and he rarely throw decisively when his back foot lands at the top of his drop, there is a moment of hesitation. And his movement in the pocket isn't as smooth either.
I'm surprised some looked over a post like this. I won't act like I know how a QB's feet is suppose to look like out there, but it seemed like Kaep's feet looked smooth and in rhythm. He was slowly hopping around. This is the only gif I find that shows alittle bit...but he it seems various foot work technique is used here, and they branch together well.
Look at that pocket! Just to mess, in my best Alex-hater voice, "But but but why isn't CK just stepping up and throwing in that ENORMOUS pocket? Instead he gets happy feet and starts rolling right, right into the LDE. Terrible mechanics and he had no reason to get happy feet.
I can not WAIT to read more hypocrisy on Monday!
That said, go Niners! Play within that game plan CK...praying it's a great one and we execute fully and get this W! It's a huge game...
