Enough with Fred Smoot already. How about Shawn Springs?!

What else can you say about Springs right now?! The guy is playing great and his INTs lately have been very instrumental in this 4 game run.

After the 4 TD disaster against T.O. I admit I thought Springs was on his last legs. He's definitely proven me wrong.

I think there's a corner in the league playing better than Springs right now.

Re: Enough with Fred Smoot already. How about Shawn Springs?!

It seems we've had a lot of discussion about moving Springs or cutting him the last few seasons and I never understand it. He is our best CB by far. He is honetsly a top tier CB when healthy and I dont see why we'd want him anywhere but playing CB for us. I know he has gotten nicked up lately but still he is too good to just give up on.

Re: Enough with Fred Smoot already. How about Shawn Springs?!

i agree. why people want to take our best cover corner, and basically replace him with Smoot(?) is beyond me. Smoot was getting toasted all game against the cowboys. springs has been very good the last 4 games. then you could probably say that about most of the team

He has a lot to do with the streak. 4 games;4 INTS. He had 0 before that. His upgrade in play has upgraded the team's.

Right now he is playing as good as any CB in the league. Perfect. BEEAAAASSSTTT

Don't forget Smoot -- but give both corners their credit. I honestly think they're the main reason we're really doing well on defense. Springs has his guy locked down always, then they throw at Smoot who has been just doing great.

springs has proven why he is our number 1 corner and why we need to keep him

Re: Enough with Fred Smoot already. How about Shawn Springs?!

Anyway, back to Smoot...

On Mike and Mike this morning (starring Eric and Sean), Ditka was asked about the Redskins. He said (paraphrasing), "I like everybody on that team except one guy. Fred Smoot couldn't cover me."

Hey Fred, your face called from soccer practice. You can pick it up anytime.

Springs is ballin right now. He's jumping routes and making receivers pay for it when they catch the ball.

Springs has been playing great!!! Just think how he is going to be up this week going back to Seattle to meet his old team!!!! I love to see him play so well....I bet the hawks stay away from him and go at Smoot!

Re: Enough with Fred Smoot already. How about Shawn Springs?!

He's not going anywhere but here next season. I don't know if you saw him embrace Gibbs after the game, it was pretty emotional between those 2. I think the issues before the season are a thing of the past. Sean realizes that Dan Snyder and Joe are stand up guys and are not out to screw him.

Ditka also had a big problem with Taylor earlier in the year and said something along the lines of him not being able to cover too.

Sometimes I really wonder about Ditka.

Well after the Dalls loss GW said he made the mistake of not putting Springs on TO for the entire game. When we see D in two weeks I'm thinking that GW will have Springs on TO all day so we will get to see TO have one of his fits when he does not have any catches.

Shawn played great, but remember we have to get past a tough Seattle team first, there is no guarentee there.
