The offense that Jim Harbaugh ran at Stanford with Andrew Luck is IDENTICIAL to the one he's running in San Francisco with Alex Smith.. Harbaugh's offense in college and pros are built on a power running game w/ the playaction pass.. that has not changed. At Stanford, Harbaugh's team ran the ball more in Luck's first two seasons than they passed, but even in Luck's most pass-happy season, Stanford run/pass was 50/50.
Okay, but this type of simplistic offense plays to Smith's strengths. He struggles to get the ball to receivers down the field on deep routes. KG's offense with the Giants would be a bad fit for Smith.
