Niners OC Jimmy Raye has high hopes for QB Alex Smith


The Niners would love to have a big year from former first overall pick Alex Smith, and Jimmy Raye, the teams offensive coordinator, says he feels the QB has finally turned the corner:

Interesting quote from San Francisco offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye about quarterback Alex Smith. “There’s a tremendous change in him from the way he carries himself and walks in and out of the building with an air of confidence, a totally different guy. If you want to digress to when he came here a year ago and he was six or seven weeks into the year, it’s a totally different guy. In terms of his confidence, familiarity with what he’s doing, his sense of entitlement, I think all of those things are manifesting themselves right now because of the success that he had, even though some people may deem it as minimal or maybe even being a little suspect about it. For him, from what I’ve seen, there’s been a tremendous change.”
