In my opinion, we are playing away from our strengths to over emphasize what we have in Colin, which is backfiring big time.
When Alex was playing, he would be under center. This gave him the option of quick reads, check downs and a power running game. What this allowed us to do was move the ball down the field with guaranteed, methodical yardage that either put points on the board, or gave us field position so our defense could stop Seattles Offense. (Just like they did last night.)
With Colin, we are seeing unnecessary shots, long drop backs and stupid gimmick Pistol runs which don't work when we have 2-3 WR sets. The offense was way too complicated last night for the environment and defense we were up against.
What I think Harbaugh and crew need to do is get back to mixing in their old school smashmouth Stanford Cardinal Football, without completely eliminating the option of the big play. It is what won us games against them in the past, I think it's time we get back to playing that way, but with a little more throwing power
Really? I'd expect this sort of post from a noob. BRB, Alex Smith beat the Seahawks with Tavaris Jackson and Seneca Wallace....................
Hmmmm............people beat the hell out of Indy in 2011 but not nearly so much in 2012....why is that.
