He was briefly injured/benched in the middle of 2010 under Singletary (aka the worst head coach in NFL history).
As far as your point about continuity, that's exactly what I'm saying. He has played well the past couple years and improved quite a bit despite all the BS he's had to deal with. He is finally in a good situation to succeed. Expect big things from Smith and the 49ers this year.
