He went three for five with 19 yards in the first preseason game. Smith hoping for improvements as he is expected to play the first half in Carolina.
"You look at two third and shorts that we didn't convert. One on the run play and the last one on a pass play. Miscommunication there with the receiver and you just can't have it. For me two plays jumped out, one the fumble, you just can't have it and the second one that third and two down there in the redzone. We need to convert, you got a good chance of walking away with a touchdown. Those are the big downs and we know that, it's third down you got to execute," said Alex Smith.
