Re: Smoot takes a backseat...

ProFootballTalk said the reason was that he isn't physical enough. Strange. Tafkas won't like that. They also have some interesting stuff about Mike Irvin's comments to Dan Patrick.

That's why I don't get it when people repeatedly insist on this board that we should have kept him (along with Pierce and Clark, who we really should have kept). Smoot has completely flopped in Minnesota. Still I wish him well, he was always one of my favorite Redskins.

Scroll down. It was a day or two ago:

"He doesn't look like he's that type of an athlete. But he is. He is, man. I don't know . . . some brother down in that line somewhere. . . . I don't know who saw what or where, his great-great-great-great-grandma ran over in the 'hood or something went down."
Recognizing the idiocy of Irvin's comments, Dan Patrick said, "Oh, that's the only way he can be a great athlete?"
"That's not the only way, but it's certainly one way," Irvin said. "If great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandma pulled one of them studs up out of the barn [and said], 'Come on in here for a second,' you know, and they go out and work in the yard. You know, back in the day."

What does Minnesota have to do with how he played here? I would take him back in a second.

Re: Smoot takes a backseat...

I like a coaching staff that isn't afraid to bench a player. I think that was one thing lacking from our team this year, the players probably had little fear of getting benched.

I think Fred Smoot is a decent player (no better than a #2 CB really) and says some crazy funny stuff, aka smootsmack. But I don't think we're really hurting that much without him. He only appears to be a football God because we let him go. And glorifying ex-Redskins is often the hip thing to do. Why there hasn't been a clamoring for Matt Bowen yet I really don't know

Smoot and Springs formed a very good CB tandem. Smoot was a Redskin. he played hard, full speed and even played with a badly bruised sternum. I think that was one of the worst moves letting him go. He loved the fans, and the organization. I think there are so many distractions (whether he created them or not) in Minnesota that its taking away from his on field ability. I liked smoot, wish we still had him.

Re: Smoot takes a backseat...

He's being benched for the same reason we let him walk. He's just not a physical enough corner.

I learned long ago to only pay attention to Irvin on the Football field.

Now that he is retired he is all but invisible to me.

I hate the line of reasoning he takes. It is followed by ' well just look at all the players in the L? what color are they?'

Well what color are most of the Professors at MIT? What color are most of the scientists at DARPA? Does that mean that we are stupid?

I am a black man and I hate the Irvin Bojangling act.
