Smith appears poised and under control. He appears decisive. The pressure is off and he is responding.
The outlook is suddenly much brighter for the 49ers, even as Andre Johnson is getting open deep for the Texans as I type this.
Smith has shown good instincts in this game, sensing the rush and knowing when to scramble. He looks good so far.
By the way, the Texans' Johnson is down with an injury right now. Not sure the severity.
