Smith struggles in 2nd preseason game

A week after an impressive performance against the Bears, Alex Smith struggled in a 23-7 preseason loss to Oakland tonight. Smith, who was starting for the second straight preseason game, completed 6 of 12 passes for 82 yards, but threw 2 interceptions. Smith had this to say to the AP in their write-up of the game:

"I can probably count on just one hand the number of plays I'd like to redo, but that'll be good to sit down and go over," Smith said. "It's something we can learn from."

Let's hope so.

This game was also the debut of former Utah wide receiver John Madsen -- who signed with Oakland earlier this year. He finished with 2 catches for 52 yards.
