A Look Back at 2011, Three Bright Spots of The Season for the 49ers

Even though the 49ers season is over, let us take a look back at some of the bright spots of the season that was. Alex Smith finally found a system in which to be successful with in the NFL, Vernon Davis became Smith’s safety net, and the defense became one of the best in the league. Though the season ended less than favorably for the 49ers, what they were able to accomplish this season when everyone counted them out, is incredible.

Going into the season the biggest question facing the team was can we win with Alex Smith at QB? Alex then went on to have the best season of his career by far and finally proved his worth to the team. Remember when Smith was the first overall pick in 2005 and he became a huge disappointment?

Well he began to resurrect that career this year, and it helps that going into next season he won’t be having to meet with a new offensive coordinator, learn a new offense, learn new schemes, calls etc. Alex finally has a chance to make people really believe in him, especially since he is rumored to be resigning with the team. Smith’s stats this season were the best of his career throwing for 3,144 yards, 17 touchdowns and a career low 5 interceptions. He also threw the game winning touchdown against the Saints in the playoffs. So for once in his career Alex Smith is on his way to stability and success in the NFL.
