Alex Smith blames the offense for Sunday’s loss to the Giants in the NFC Championship.
“We were awful on third down. We got ourselves in a lot of third-and-longs and then when we were in third-and-manageable, we didn’t covert. Too many three-and-outs, didn’t help out the defense enough. Convert those third downs, you give yourself more plays, more chances.” Smith said the Giants changed up their game plan in the rematch.
“In the first game there was a lot of single safety, a lot of playing the run that left us a lot of one-on-ones outside. They mixed it up a lot more. They pressed us, played coverage, played cover-two.”
