Re: The Real Story of Last Nights Game: Hint.... Its not about Big Ben
The receivers are at fault for the int's also. The defense was giving Alex Smith a cushion like the one they used to always give Brady. Even bad qb's at the NFL level can complete 3-10 yard open passes all day. The niners wouldn't have got 20 if the offense would have done their job on a few drives and took some time off the clock. This defense does play good enough to win games, but they just aren't exceptional like the prior years. No turnovers, no qb pressure, inconsistant defensive schemes like giving a no name QB a 10 yard cushion, all those things will make it hard to win in the playoffs unless the offense really shows up.
