I do agree Alex Smith has done well but he's not a show stopper QB...

I'd say the front 7, I think the secondary will match up well with their reciever,s.

Good question. We allowed 25 points five times this year: the three losses, Carolina once, and Houston. I keep using 25 because we gotta figure Drew can get three touchdowns in his sleep. Then against a good defense we might have to work for a 4th, maybe settle for a pair of field goals. So when out D starts allow more than 26, 27 points, that's when I get nervous.

I get nervous when we play teams that can score quick, the niner's are more of a ball control, grind it out type O. I don't think they will get 25, maybe 12-17 if we turn the ball over a couple times. Our D needs 3 and outs on these guys to up the tempo.

I agree 100%. We need to let them make those mistakes, and if we get up by 2 scores it opens up a lot for our secondary.
