The difference though is that Kaep is a running QB whereas Smith is a scrambling QB so the yards gained evens out.
Sidenote: MICHAEL CRABTREE!
They always bring that up. People seem to forget that Smith himself is a very athletic QB and that he played in a Spread offense in college so he'd pretty much be able to run this pistol/spread offense we currently are running without any problem.
As for Gore he's not comfortable running out of a pistol offense.. He's used to a pro style offense where he's able to find the right hole to run it at will. LMJ is more of a pistol/spread back.
I feel like Kaep is getting alot of fortunate breaks in his favor. There's been a number of throws which should have been picks and we seem to get alot of fortunate turnovers which results in easy drives.
Crabtree is on fire and it seems he's the only player that has benefited from the switch. Davis has been non existent since the switch so it's all relevant..
