His QB rating was below 70 in half of his games including 5 below or at a 50 rating.
Hey, I also don't think he's gonna be the savior of the Niners, but he doesn't have to be. And I saw major improvement since his awful rookie season. Add to that that, other than Gore, the Niners offense sucked last year... Smith will be fine. The type of QB than won't win much by himself, but won't lose games either.
Also, what you say about Jackson is true, but you can't deny that he's a big improvement over what SF had at WR last year. And getting him for a 4th rounder was big. Add to that that Vernon will be healthy and the passing game should be greatly improved.
Still, I don't think it will be enough to win the NFC West, but they'll be better... and maybe (just maybe) will make the playoffs as a wildcards. Still a year away from being true contenders for the division, tho.
