Cameron Wake roasted the SF offensive line, but I suppose they aren't whining about their LT....
Smith is the leading pass rusher in the NFL....what the hell did anyone really expect was going to happen? Someone probably should have been assigned to chip block him on virtually every passing down.
I agree, this really doesn't make me suddenly think that Martin isn't capable of playing left tackle. This was his first NFL start at left tackle, and he was tasked with stopping the best pass rusher in the NFL and the best pass rush in the NFL. He gave up a sack and a hurry, big whoop.
We've got three games left in the season. Let's see what the kid can do. He's still going to face Justin Babin and Mario Williams the next two weeks. He's going to get a lot of quality playing time against elite pass rushers. I think if he takes it in stride, and hits the weights this offseason, he'll be fine and ready to go next year.
