smoot's ranking
 
"In summary, we think Smoot has been overrated. Maybe not to Champ Bailey levels (another ex-Redskins cornerback, perhaps that's the key)", [url]http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com[/url].

Does Don Banks know what he's talking about? I always thought Smoot was very physical, what do you think? If you read the artical he says he has good coverage skills but ranks him last among FA cornerbacks.

I didn't think much of him untill half way through the 2003 season when he played with a bruised sternum. IMO 2004 was when he really started looking like a solid corner. Anyways, he's gone and I'm glad we didn't overpay for him.

He used to tackle like a matador, now we think he's better because he was always reminding us. Him and Springs really attacked the run last year though.

smoot didnt press in coverage a lot i dont think, maybe thats what he means. i remember smoot always giving a huge cushion.

I think he was a good corner, physical enough. The problem is, we don't have anybody to fill his shoes.

I would actually take Springs over Smoot even considering his age.

Didnt springs have a better year last year? Even though it did seem apparent that Smootie was willing to parcipated in tackling for once.

I've seen Lucas play. He is nothing special. Smoot is a good player but lets face it, big receivers would eat him for lunch.

I give Smoot full marks for heart but a WR like Owens just runs through him. Then Owens gets to Taylor and it's 'Lay down' time.

Second 6 catches 47 yards no Tds and one lost fumble. That sound like numbers with Brunell at QB. LOL

Smoot's tackling improved, but he was still no tackler. He was sent on as many blitzes as Springs, and got exactly zero sacks. I remember once he completely whiffed on a blind side sack opportunity.

I think that was against Green Bay. If I remember correctly?

What the hell are these character issues they are talking about? Smoot was a model teammate and citizen for his entire stay in DC.

it's funny how opinions change so quickly...i could have sworn a few weeks ago smoot was this awesome corner that many people didn't want to let go...now he's nothing but average and it's ok that he's gone...

i for one will miss the little guy. he got better and better every year, and did very well in williams system. i think it was a definite loss for the team both on and off the field.

We didn't want to let him go because we liked him as a person and a character in our "Soap Opera for Men," however I think that many of us conceded that he was not worth the money he was asking.
