710ESPN audio: NFC West Week 7

By Mike Sando

Among the subjects covered during my Thursday afternoon conversation with Dave Grosby, Bob Stelton and Dave Wyman of 710ESPN Seattle:
By the way, Grosby was almost ready to hand the 49ers a first-round bye. The schedule does set up favorably over the next month. Alex Smith's ability to hold up for a full season ranked high among my concerns for the 49ers entering the season. He's held up well to this point despite taking too many sacks over the first month.
