Raye feels Smith is ready to turn the corner


The Niners would love to have a big year from former first overall pick Alex Smith, and Jimmy Raye, the teams offensive coordinator, says he feels the QB has finally turned the corner:

Interesting quote from San Francisco offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye about quarterback Alex Smith. “There’s a tremendous change in him from the way he carries himself and walks in and out of the building with an air of confidence, a totally different guy. If you want to digress to when he came here a year ago and he was six or seven weeks into the year, it’s a totally different guy. In terms of his confidence, familiarity with what he’s doing, his sense of entitlement, I think all of those things are manifesting themselves right now because of the success that he had, even though some people may deem it as minimal or maybe even being a little suspect about it. For him, from what I’ve seen, there’s been a tremendous change.”

    I have and continue to support my man Alex! Trust me niner fans Alex wiil surprise the NFL this year! He has always had the talent he just needed some consistency he’s got that with raye! Wether it’s a good offense or not is besides the point cuz Alex will tear it up just because he knows the system! Great year to be niner fan!!!!! Niners Baby!!!!!!

  2. I’m a Giants fan but even I can see the talent Alex has. But I also had faith Eli would turn the corner as well and look how well that turned out. Good luck niners, but not to much luck. LOL.
