It's not surprising that Alex Smith is experiencing growing pains. He's a rookie, and he's playing on a 49ers team that's well on its way to earning the top draft pick for the second year in a row. Smith has yet to throw a touchdown, has double-digit interception totals, and there are rumors that his hands are too small to hold onto an official NFL football (he also has nine fumbles). If that's true, maybe San Francisco should petition the league to use Nerf balls during all its games next season.

You don't see many fifth-round rookie wideouts with real expectations, but Tajae Sharpe is one. Tennessee's poor history of developing wideouts has led to a rare opportunity that Sharpe can seize this season.
