  • Alex Smith expected to start Sunday

    The third-year quarterback took a full load this Wednesday, completing both short and long passes.

    Its good to have your starting quarterback back out there, said wide receiver Arnaz Battle. Hes always been steady for us in there, and was in there for all 16 games last year. Unfortunately hes had this injury but I know hes ready to get back in there and compete and were glad to have him back out there.

    Coach Nolan said last week that it was important for Smith to have confidence in his arm, something that would come once he had a chance to take some full reps.

    According to tight end Delanie Walker Smith took back his huddle with poise and determination.

    He came in there confident and ready, said Walker. On the first snap it was lets get it right, lets be focused. He made a good throw on the first play and I knew he was ready.

    Barring any setbacks from now through Friday, Smith should be heading the offense when the Saints march into town.

    OH THANK GOD....I couldn't take any more of Dilfer. The 49ers now have a shot to win.

      He played against the Giants last week and was a total non factor. He did have a key holding penalty though.

        he dropped that one that hit him in the hands in wide open space that he could have easily taken for a td if not for his stone hands.

          Well for a top 10 pick he shouldn't have stone hands.

                I hope for his sake, Will Smith doesn't eat him.
                The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. Weve shown weve been able to do that. - Jabari Greer

                  They have to be more creative in getting him the ball. He has had big plays in 2 of the 4 games he played in. But the first two games we hardly even passed the ball so it was irrelevant.

                  He had to appeal to Nolan just to get him into the game plan more. And he has said that he has been open but the qb's have not gotten him the ball. Very frustrating stuff bc I think we all want to see what he is capable of.

                    I think Dilfer has missed a lot of opportunities in the passing game. Vs. the Giants he had Vernon Davis on a deep Flag route in front of the Safety with a lot of open space ahead of him.. but instead of leading the pass in front of the receiver with some touch. Dilfer tried to gun it in to the spot where Davis was already at, which led to a pass he was unprepared for, and fell incomplete. For a veteran QB Dilfer seems to miss a lot of reads, and doesn't really pick up things at the Line of scrimmage very well. (which is probably why you see him slamming the Play photographs to the ground on the sidelines afterwards)

                    Alex Smith coming back should be a big boost for their passing game, but depends if he's healthy and ready to come back out there. If he's rushed out there's a chance of suffering further damage.

                          Smith getting back on the field is important for his development, and it gives the Niners a chance to really see everything at work. As for Davis, I was never high on him, even when he blew everyone away at the combine. I live in the DC area, and I never heard peep about him on local shows before his combine performance. When I asked friends of mine who were fans, they mentioned that he had a poor work ethic and had issues blocking. Sounds like a bad combo...

                            Davis did expose one major flaw that the giants have yet to correct though, and thats the fact that we simply have nobody who can cover the TE. If you have a good TE and a good WR that both demand double teams, you'll gash our pass coverage bc we're only capable of doubling up on one of them.

                              BBD, I think that would be true of many defenses. If you have a big time WR that commands a double, the rest of the offense is going to benefit. It's kind of like how Westbrook and Antonio Gates open up the offense for everyone else.
