Wait. What? Smith Called the Plays
It has been reported that at some point during the 49ers game against the Colts, Alex Smith’s radio in his helmet went out and he was forced to call his own plays. The talk around Ninerland was during which part of the game did Smith call the plays.
The latest report from Mark Purdy of the Mercury News is stating that during the 2-minute drill in which Smith hooked up with Vernon Davis was the point in the game where Smith called the plays.
Smith signaled to the bench that the radio was out, then he coolly went into the huddle and called his own play.
The pass to tight end Vernon Davis wasn’t complete. But the incident — followed by a perfect two-minute drill at the end of the first half where Smith also called all his own plays and generated a touchdown
So let me get this straight, the best drive of the game and Alex was the one calling the plays. Why do they have Jimmy Raye again?
