Sorry, should have clarified better...under Alex's tenure, many of the complaints were slow starts to games, not pulling the trigger, taking sacks, not seeing wide open receivers, poor 1st and 3rd down conversions, unimaginative route trees, needing to pass under 3 seconds, etc.
Basically, we're starting to see that much of this is coming down to the type of offense we installed here and coaching as being the common denominator under two very different QB's...but we are having the same results/concerns.
I certainly agreed with the QB switch given CK's upside and how his mobility fits better into this type of offense (if that targeted receiver is covered, CK can burn you better with his mobility and legs than Alex; he's also a better deeper threat and better at ad libbing). I certainly don't want to get into a QB debate b/c we all know each other's strengths/weaknesses like the back of our hands but to me, the type of offense we run and coaching of both QB's within it, appear to be identical at this juncture.
I agree with everything you are saying and believe that this is a good thing like last Sunday when VD got wide open and a bad thing when a good defensive team with a good coach understands how the 49ers work. Ted Ginn was never sent out on isolation deep routes now he is in Carolina and doing these things.
I'm sure we'll see the same with Austin Collie and Hawkins and others as well...maybe even Chad Hall in KC. We have talent...just being underutilized in the passing game IMHO (that includes the RB's as well). Run game is solid though (would like to see more Hunter though minus those stupid stretch run plays that always net up minus-5 yards). Ha
