2013 SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS vs. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Game 2)

This is totally downplaying it. Things can be forgiven, but NO ONE forgets.

Alex has already shown the propensity to shake off the past and smile big with what is relevant and important. No doubt in my mind he's fine, and would always naturally take the high road.

We can make this situation more than that just to sensationalize it, but it is what it is.. and it ain't much o nothing.

And no, I think our organization should have been smarter with our #1 pick and not forced him out there. Some guys are ready to take that immediate step, Alex most definitely wasn't. Neither was Kaep.


Yes, he did, but not by choice.

The point I was trying to make is Alex Smith was the wrong pick, so no need to cheer for the dude. The guy is a nice bloke and all, but just not what I would call a great QB. It was a No.1 overall pick wasted.

Why wouldn't he feel free to cheer for who he wants? and why is it important enough for you to try and dissuade him?

Yeah I agree, Alex will handle it with pure class, that is no doubt.

However you can bet he's going to be peppered with questions about his bitter history with the 49ers going into this game.

And as far as his play is concerned, I hope he plays with a chip on his shoulder, and try to attack our defense. Don't be that same passive Alex and try and dink and dunk, or take sacks....IMO, he's got something to prove to Harbaugh.

This is what I'm curious to see as well. Him taking that next step and open up a little bit. I think a new change of scenery and maybe new targets will allow him to go downfield a little more. If not I'm not really sure how well he is going to work out. But really I want to see it because it was something that he needed to do here. Take some chances and not be so confined in running the offense.
Alex gonna go 8/12 for 28 yards. lol

I asked my buddy about Smith and he said "he was ahead of his time. if he came out today, he'd be running the spread/pistol".

Interesting stuff.


Alex Smith running the Pistol ? He can run a bit, but not what I would call a speedster. More importantly, the guy is scared to throw the ball down field due to lack of arm strength and confidence.15 yards was his max comfort range by and large at least when he was with us.

Probably.

Chris Ault, the former Nevada head coach and creator of the pistol offense hired by the Chiefs as a consultant, once said Alex Smith would be a great fit for the pistol offense.

losing your subtle touch on trolling... it's just not effective when u try so hard.
The KC defense will be a good test for our 1st team. Houston and Hali can bring pressure from the outside and their secondary has added a lot of talent from last season. If Jenkins is going to step up and start making plays, this will be a good test to see if he can.

This was one of the better front 7s in the league last year but lack of quality in the secondary and the fact the QB constantly turned the ball over last season resulted in them not getting the credit they deserved.

Not too worried about our D although Jamaal Charles is a top 5 RB and will be a good test for Wilhoite.

Reports from KC say Alex Smith has been connecting very well with Bowe and Fasano. In a 2.5 hour padded practice this past week, he completed like 17 out of 21 for 3 TDs, largely against the first team defense.

Of course the big story line will be about Alex but this KC team has a lot more talent than many realize. They had 6 Pro Bowlers last season and have added some serious talent in the secondary and Eric Fisher looks like the real deal at LOT.

Gonna be a good test. It has the feel of a regular season trap game - coming off Denver and playing a team that did poorly last season. I will be interested to see if the first team plays with some emotion or just goes through the motions. Inconsistent play from week to week last season was a big problem. The one thing I am hoping the coaching staff can change from last season is to be ready every week. There are only one or two weak spots in the schedule this season. If this team is to play like many predict, they will have to play well every week, and not take a team like the Chiefs lightly.
This is your preview of SB 48.

You forget about how much better he became at throwing to his WR last year. The 49ers most explosive offensive performance came last year from Alex Smith.

He will throw at least 8/12 and 29 yards! jk
