Non related to the groin injury. Just to get into the game yesterday. Few comments about the game. No. As it is the game that we did not play well. Game that we could not tackle well. Game -- we did not execute. Very well. Particularly India the first half. And in what I have to say about that is he's not going to be able to regional. He does not going to be. It is going to be back. It's just a matter road. When you have a team. And no you have. Players that that. Wanna be a good football team they wanna be good football players. You just have to work harder to get there. Have a coaching staff we just have to coach better. We just have to coach better smarter. Problem. You know all of the little things that were striving to get done we just have to get -- done it's as simple as that. Yes I am confident that this season will be a good season. And we got six weeks left we got six games left. I am convinced. Going forward that we will play better. I am convinced. That the situation like this we have to continue to. To make some changes for the personnel changes the whatever. To continue to try and get people on the field that can get us what we need to go. Other and a this is disappointing that that we did not play well yesterday. We do not start well. But. We just have to continue to get better. Now of course. It out. Well. I will -- this week at the Raiders started this season and -- -- that our goal was to win enough games to go to play. That -- you'll like. That is not change will not. Home. We're team in in my mind we're we're good enough to do that we we're running out of dean and we're running out of time. But we are better. But that's just something that. You know I I would not try to go to all of -- the gifts and bought -- whatever we just have to get get it done. -- Like yours that people smarter we. -- Hillary office where our offense needs. I would think that. As we continue to move forward and and Jim Murray and Mike Johnson and Alex Smith. It's just you you have to continue to to learn what is strange saw me you would be from the very first game depleted Houston. After that game and be very juicy old thus Alex Smith let's put him out there. Not taken into consideration that the defense may be a lot different maybe there's something that they're giving up. You know not every time that you see it. That's what it is. We're continuing to. Two to learn historians who were continuing to to have him communicate to us know what works for him what doesn't. And and I think if we go forward. We we have to. Really. Look at what's working for him. And what works for the office. And continue to do -- things. Yes. Here that. -- -- it's. Well I saw him when you say spread offense could you explain exactly it would mean he's -- it. More better days. And hours. Well. Let me ask you this this this makes you know clarify. So if you saying that he seems to work better from a shotgun. With more receivers on the field what if he had the same number of receivers on the field but he was duel under the sooner with that's QB spread do you. -- You'd think he'd better shut it here results. Okay. -- -- -- I I would do see this I think. I think for him when and I just went back to to look at all of this time from the from Houston to yesterday. Problem. -- he's he's done well withers under center you've done well whether -- got to back in a back field he's done well what we've got to. I think the biggest thing for him -- haven't time. I think just the most important thing for him is to have time. I think. I think one of the worst thing that we can do right now is to put Alex Smith in shotgun and say okay. That's -- getting guys here's what it is and just let him throw. 4050 timed game. And let's see where you end up as I'm looking at Alex Smith right now Ausmus to me it's thrown one of any quarterback in the league right now. At some look at him right now he is as accurate as any quarterback in the league right now. I think you do the smartest thing for us to do continuing to go forward you not to take all of training camp. Not to take all of of what we have gone into this season and just throw it out and say we're gonna go to shotgun I think the smartest thing for us to do. Is to continue to open it up. As Alex Smith allows us to. As he continues to communicate. We gotta protect him -- well and not just throw him out there because of the first time he gets an interception the first time he gets tipped ball. It is why you doing that. Do you think you should open it up that much do you think you -- ultimate mark. So I I just think we have to be smart about what we're doing I think we have a good thing going with him. Unfortunately. We can't we haven't done that in the first half. But I think we have a good being born with -- in -- though just allowing him -- he every game that he has like he had yesterday hopefully. On the other side and it debut win but every game that he had -- he can throw like that. It's it's all of the time that he's missed. All the crap that he's gone through it gives him that confidence born four to know I can't do this I can get this done. So. And hopefully that that starts coming in the first quarter and the second quarter and going forward and maybe you could learn a little bit more. The -- Myself. You know everything you have all the -- You know we're. Everett went through Thursday and it was you have. I think. I think going forward you'd. I'd be even if you look at the Indianapolis Colts that I I think. They're not just a passing team they they may pass more. But I think depending on the team that they're facing. And what are they need to slow the game down. Or speed the game out. What are they ahead in the game whether or behind you negating what this team has been great pass rush will they don't have it I think all of those things become a factor in. How you gonna play at how many time he's gone through. -- -- I think go home. You if you sit down and and talk to. Peyton Manning I think -- the first thing that he would tell you is that -- -- handing the ball. Biko's. You've one less interceptions that you have to take the risk of taking. I do wanna have a balance. Because I believe that if you can run the football. It forces him. To respect -- pass. It it it makes him vulnerable and vice Versa the football always being that way. In when you have a balanced when you when you can effectively. Creative. Balanced attack. Then it makes you better football team you can go into the game and Alex Smith to be news you're becoming a complete quarterback. The thing and I'm thankful that he's not doing interviews. Is crying about not throwing the ball more. Think I'm I'm really thankful that he's not doing that. Because he can sit back and look at the number of passes that he's thrown in a game. And and sit back and look at how accurate he asked them. Problem. Know some quarterback would be saying that did that really have not been as successful as he has been throwing the ball so maybe crying about going to Baltimore even in the media. He has been doing it which shows me even more about who we. But I I think go. From what I'm seeing with him on on this very I'm excited about him. And they are still some things that that he's missing are still some reads that that he's not getting. Which makes me even more excited. But we're gonna we're gonna get the office decided ball boy I mean I'm talking and didn't worry too much into various talk and now it's too much in. And now to talk and Mike Johnson too much in would talk and each other too much sport not team. To get where it needs to be so that we can have a successful office with all of the weapons that we have. You know our offensive line will do you know -- working products. And but. You know hopefully they're just gonna continue to get better and and just give us enough time that we -- route to two to get the ball out. And for us to have some successful runs in and go from there.
