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:
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.
