SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Torrey Smith entered the season as one of the few San Francisco receivers with any proven track record in the NFL.One quarter of the way through the season, the Niners have struggled to get their best deep threat the ball.Smith has just nine catches for 106 yards and one touchdown through four games with the NFLs least productive passing offense and the frustration was apparent when he threw his helmet on the sideline after one failed attempt last game.Im fine being patient, Im completely fine not getting the ball as long as were moving the ball and were scoring points, Smith said Tuesday. Ill never complain about that. Its tough when Im waiting and I know we have an opportunity to change a game like that and we miss. Its tough.Smith had a couple of outbursts during Sundays loss to Dallas when he was targeted just twice all game. The most notable came when he threw his helmet on the sideline after Blaine Gabbert badly underthrew a deep pass, turning a possible go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter into an interception.I feel like if we hit that, we win the game, Smith said. I was frustrated. I shouldnt probably show it as much but I want to win. Im passionate about winning. We work too hard not to win here and I know that we can. It was just a little frustration moment but it wont happen again.That was the first time all game that Gabbert even threw the ball in Smiths direction. The only other pass to Smith came on San Franciscos final drive when he caught a 3-yard pass on fourth-and-6 that ended the Niners hopes for a comeback.But the rest of the day most of the passes went toward slot receiver Jeremy Kerley and tight end Garrett Celek.Were not trying to force anybody the ball, offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. Torrey is going to get his looks. Thats going to happen. Were confident in that. Torrey is confident in that. What the defense tells us is kind of where the ball goes and hes going to get his fair share as the season goes on. Im confident in that.Smiths biggest strength as a receiver is his ability to get deep and that has not meshed well with Gabberts abilities. Gabbert has completed just one of 10 pass attempts at least 20 yards down field -- a 28-yard TD catch by Smith against Carolina -- and his 33.3 rating on those attempts is the second worst in the league, according to SportRadar.The Niners had their best success a year ago throwing to Smith, generating a 116.9 passer rating on those throws in 2015, according to Pro Football Focus. That has not been the case this year when that rating has dropped to 37.7Smith was targeted 16 times the first two games -- catching just five of those passes -- but has been rather invisible the past two games with just six targets and four catches for 38 yards.A lot of it just depends on how people play us and what theyre doing, coach Chip Kelly said. Weve gotten a lot of man coverage out there. Sometimes people are leaning safeties toward his side. So, were taking advantage of whats going on.Game notes DL DeForest Buckner (left foot) and CB Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) did not take part in practice. ... Kerley was upgraded to limited with an ankle injury.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Bobby Hurley College Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Cheap Duke Jerseys Free Shipping . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. http://www.cheapdukebluedevilsjerseys.com/?tag=tyus-jones-college-jersey . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. Cheap Duke Gear .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Cheap Duke Jerseys Authentic . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. Virginia Tech failed in its first bid to lock up the ACCs Coast Division title, and now will have to wait two weeks for a chance to try again.Right now, the Hokies focus is on preparing to play at Notre Dame on Saturday.Weve got to turn the page, just like we talked about when we win ballgames, draw the focus inward and try and get this football team better, Hokies coach Justin Fuente said Monday. It kind of highlights the slim margin between victory and defeat when you look at the league and the teams that are playing each other.The Hokies (7-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) helped with one of their worst performances of the season in a 30-20 loss to the Yellow Jackets . Jerod Evans threw for one touchdown and ran for two more, but the last two came in the final five minutes with Virginia Tech trying to erase a 30-7 deficit. Evans also threw two interceptions, doubling his total for the season, as the Hokies had four turnovers.We made obviously too many mistakes and they made plenty enough plays to beat us, Fuente said.Virginia Tech could have clinched the Coastal Division with a victory on Saturday, but the Hokies and North Carolina both face non-conference game this weekend -- the Tar Heels play The Citadel. North Carolina finishes the season against rival North Carolina State in two weeks, and Virginia Tech wraps up versus Virginia. The Hokies hold the tie-breaker should the teams finish tied thanks to a 34-3 win at Chapel Hill earlier this season.Notre Dame (4-6) that needs to win its last two games to become bowl-eligible.Fullback Sam Rogers believes a week of focus will get the Hokies back on track.We just have to do better at all positions, he said. Theres no one person or anything like that. We just all have to look ourselves in the mirror and see what we got to do better and do that. And just really ttake a self-check and realize what weve got to do moving forward and well do better.dddddddddddd Im very confident in that.Wide receiver Isaiah Ford agrees, adding the Hokies got outplayed by Georgia Tech.I think its just us, said Ford, the Hokies leader with 58 catches and career leader with 24 touchdown receptions. We like to say that everything falls back on us. How we play will determine the outcome.The loss was the second head-scratcher for Virginia Tech this season, and each has knocked them out of the Top 25 . They rose to as high as 17th before a 31-17 loss at Syracuse in mid-October, and had climbed back to 18th before allowing the surging Yellow Jackets to strafe their defense for 309 rushing yards at Lane Stadium.And the Yellow Jackets did it without injured starting quarterback Justin Thomas and suspended top rusher Dedrick Mills. Marcus Marshall ran for 143 yards and a score, and QB Matthew Jordan ran for 121 yards and two TDs.The Notre Dame game seems to come at odd time in Virginia Techs schedule.However the pause in the battle for the Coastal Division title gives the Hokies an opportunity to get things straight before the critical finale.It falls at a time when we can really just focus on getting better right now, Rogers said. We know we didnt play well last week and we didnt deserve to win the Coastal championship last week, but we still have an opportunity so right now we just have to focus on getting better. It falls at a perfect time. This week the main focus is just, lets just get better at what we do so we can have those opportunities later in the year.---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Hank on Twitter: www.twitter.com/hankkurzjr Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap China Womens NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Throwback Cheap NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Throwback Cheap NFL Jerseys China Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2018 ' ' '
