Colts ready to bring the heat on 49ers new/old QB - [Full Article]

49ers quarterback Alex Smith better lace up his running shoes.
Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney thinks he should have more sacks. And if Freeney thinks he should have more sacks, he’s going to do everything in his power to get more sacks. Smith better start running. I’d suggest 7 a.m. Sunday, just for a head start.
Smith won the 49ers starting job last week, nearly two years after losing it, fighting through injury and becoming synonymous for busted draft pick.
Welcome back, Alex.
Watch your back, Alex.
“I think I should have four or five (sacks) every game,” Freeney said. “Realistically, things happen. You miss plays. You miss sacks. That kind of drives you. I think I miss some every game. I think I’ve missed three or four every game.
“What game is it? I should have 21.”
Freeney says this with a smile, a look that says he’s having the time of his life right now, and why not? His team is 6-0 and in firm control of the AFC South. He has seven sacks this season, fifth-best in the NFL, and is riding a streak of seven consecutive games with at least one sack.
