Smith questions the play-calling in the loss to Seattle

Alex Smith was one of many that was shaking his head at the play-calling on Sunday, and why the team was so off as far as the game was in Seattle.

He didn’t use expletives, exclamation points, or all capital letters. But quarterback Alex Smith subtly seemed to agree with fans who have questioned the play-calling of Niners offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye. Smith effectively dinked-and-dunked on the Seahawks in the first quarter, completing 9 of 10 passes for 81 yards but Seattle, which was already crowding the line to stop Frank Gore, eventually adjusted to the short-passing game, which almost never stopped.Twenty-four of Smith’s first 25 passes were described as “short” on the official play-by-play (Example: A. Smith incomplete short right to 15-M. Crabtree). After the Niners fell behind 28-6 in the third quarter, 14 of Smith’s 20 passes were “short,” with six labeled as “deep.” (Intermediate isn’t a category). Smith was asked if the lack of balls down the field was a result of the play-calling or his own decision-making. “We certainly didn’t stretch them and take shots,” said Smith, who completed 13 of his final 28 passes after a 13-of-17 start. “There were a few called, but obviously I wasn’t trying to force anything. I was taking what they were giving me. But in the second half we didn’t take any shots down the field either.”
