Hopefully Carroll has a little respect for the Niners D as some of you seem to. But unfortunately he's not stupid.
But back to the point, the 49ers defense beat the Hawks. Not Alex Smith.
You didn't see the game, that's the problem. Even the commentators were saying that "the story of this game, if the Seahawks lose, will be the dropped passes". They were HUGE drops at critical times by WIDE OPEN receivers. At least 1 (Turbin's) would have been a TD for sure, and 1 (Tate's) would have been a 1st down close to FG range. One was a drop by Edwards in the end zone that would have been a tough catch but it was in his hands.
The 49ers D was beat on these plays, and the Hawks' players just could not make the plays for some reason.
I don't recall any drops by the 49ers in this game. If there were any, they were not critical drops.
