Denver basically had Smith single Covered all day long, I thought I would never see that again and I wouldn't Blame Jake in a million years for throwing towards Smith when he's in Single coverage that's a TD waiting to happen.
who up here thinks delhomme is too dependent upon smith in the passing game?
don't get me wrong, smith is unworldly good, but i want delhomme to spread the ball around a bit more, get muhammed, the TE's, and some others some passes.
that's just my opinion.
Too Dependent Upon Smith?

If we use Smitty too much, the talking heads and fans will say on Jake that Smitty "bails him out" all the time and that we're not giving reps to the other receivers on the team, going back to the "feed the stud" mentality under Dan Henning.
There is no happy medium, is there?

If he's open, throw it to him 40 times a game.

And why not? Who else was going to hurt them?
Now, with the running game and Moose to get the yards if they gang up on Smith, they have to pay. This frees up Smith. Get him the damn ball.
So to my point:
If we have to throw to Smith even when there's a deep safety read pre-snap, we've got problems.
If we throw to Smith when he's in single coverage or even when he's double covered but got a jump on the saftey, we don't have problems.

Steve Smith is our best player. He should be at atleast 100 receptions before the seasons done with, or that in my opinion is a disappointment. He is a game changer.

i like what davidson is doing. the only thing i would like to see more is passes to the RBs, more WR screens to smitty and a few more trick plays. i have a feeling that we are going to start seeing this stuff beginning sunday.
We do have 36 passes to the running backs this year. Doesn't sound like much until you realize that we throw the ball less than just about any team in the NFL (tied for last in passing attempts).
