I am not twisting anything, last year Baltimore was more of a vertical offense, SF was not with Smith. Flacco averaged 33 attempts per game, Smith 21. I stand by my statement, Smith hid behind a successful running game and did not throw very much.
Both SF and Balt have talent, yes. Why can't you explain why Alex Smith hid behind a good running game and only averaged 21 attempts per game? Baltimore went to more of a vertical offense last year. Why is this?
I was talking about his 2012 year not when he was playing under Nolan or Singletary. Since everyone wants to ignore those years and focus on the Harbaugh years we can discuss those. We were talking about Alex Smith hiding behind a running game and didn't attempt a lot of passes last season, why did you start talking about everything else besides that?
You make it sound like they threw so much more with Kapernick he threw over 30 times twice 1 was a OT game so there were more snaps to take 1 they were down huge and had to throw to try to get back in it. So was Kapernick "hideing behind there running game"? Smith behind the same talent had a better QB rating then Kapernick 104 to 98 You have made it sound like Kapernick came in and was much better then Smith he wasn't
LOL i show things you can't answer so you just ask why i brought it up
But to answer your question I was showing how you twist facts about your opinions. You asked how you were twisting facts I showed you. You say that Smith only did well with a STACKED team. Well Flacco had a stacked team. Does he suck to? Facts twisted. You said The Giants got Eli through the draft they used draft picks to trade for him just like we did for Smith Facts twisted. You time and time again have said that Smith's and Cassel's numbers were simular but yet never mention how much better of a situation Cassel was in early then Smith Facts twisted. Unless you can tell me that Playing for Mike Nolan and having Arnaz Battel and Brandon Lloyd to throw to is as good as playing under Bill Belichick and throwing to Randy Moss and Wes Welker again FACTS TWISTED.
and with a qb rating of 104 means he made just about every pass atempt count what dont you get about that. smith knows how to keep the chains moving and get first downs. knows how to change plays up dependant on certain defenses. has anyone on here called him a drew brees or said he is a qb that puts up gotty numbers. further more look what brees did last year without proper coaching... quit your WHINING
I have not ruled out any kind of rating, I have acknowledged that and that is why I admit he is a good game manager. He makes safe throws in the appropriate situations.
His TD percentage is below average. His ability to throw down the field is below average. His pocket presence is terrible. He is sacked an ungodly amount of times, he sucks at converting third downs and he is hurt every 10 seconds.
He's just an average quarterback and our gm just traded 2 possible second round picks or another third for him. He's average, accept it.
Kaepernick had 80 rushing attempts which means he ran the read option A TON.
Ok let's ignore everyone else for a second and focus on Alex Smith. Smith has a stacked team as well, why doesn't he have more attempts? More yards? More touchdown passes? Better third down conversion percentage? Why does he have More sacks?
