Since last season's surprising run to the NFC championship game, San Francisco 49ers fans could only imagine the possibilities if Alex Smith and the offense ever matched the defense's dominance.
Just Saturday night, Smith added another punchline when he badly bounced the ceremonial first pitch of the San Francisco Giants-Cincinnati Reds playoff series in the dirt. Some teased aloud whether the quarterback could even throw.
With the New York Giants returning to Candlestick Park next for the first time since ending San Francisco's season, the only one laughing now is the 49ers quarterback.
Smith had one of the most prolific passing games of his eight-year career Sunday, throwing for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns to help the 49ers set a franchise record with 621 total yards in a 45-3 romp over the Buffalo Bills. San Francisco became the first team in NFL history with 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing.
