Yeah, he's a bad corner, which means he has to have a huge rush so the qb doesn't have the full 2 seconds it takes for his man to break free.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

Smoot was an absolute beast on the back end of 2007, following Taylor's death. But it seems more so that it was due to playing with extreme emotion. If he could channel that emotion again, maybe he'd go back to being a solid #2/strong nickel. But that doesn't seem as likely.

I think Smoot probably lasts one more year because of his veteran presence in the secondary. I think they'll find room to keep him so that their two back-ups aren't two inexperienced guys in Tryon and Barnes.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

I wish Smoot was still a solid CB but people are right he just isn't. I will say in his defense we've had a pathetic pass rush which puts more pressure on the secondary than most realize. The result is all of our CBs have given up plays...even the strangely lauded Springs who openly talked about our lack of pass rush and what that meant for his position. In short the strength of our secondary, especially under Williams, had to make up of the weakness of the line. Now there should be more balance...maybe Smooter will "look" better this year and nicely surprise most of us

If running his mouth was a paying job, he'd be wealthy man. He's smart enough to own a few Waffle Houses though. That's a good investment, especially when the bars let out. He knows he doesn't have long.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

love the guy, but 1 on 1 coverage isn't his forte any more. If he can press the reciever in a cover 2 he's likely at his best as he'd have deep help. I wonder if they're working him in the slot some?

Yeah. I think this is Smoot's farewell tour. He may even know it. Fun guy, loved him during his first stint. Glad we got him back. I think he's done now, however, and I hope he doesn't cost us a game along the way.

If Smoot plays like he did last year, either Tryon or Barnes will bump him at some point. It may not be week 1, but it'll happen.

Good point Goat. I think Smoot will be around for one more year. With Tryon getting better by the reports we're getting and the drafting of Barnes, I think it makes for great competition. Between that and the new pass rush we seem to have, it may bring out the best in him. I certainly hope so. He's a great character and I'm sure his team-mates would miss him but with the competition we now have at that position, his days are probably numbered.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

I think Smoot will be our best corner this year.
I just don't trust DHall to be consistent. He is a crybaby that needs things to go his way for him to excel.
Rogers has the best cover skills but can't make a play when the ball is in the air.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

I'll say this about Smoot, the guy gives his all and plays hurt. His better days might be behind him, but he can still be a quality #3 or #4 corner.

Re: Smoot tried to decapitate DJ hackett

Everyone needs to just chill on the secondary. They are an above average group, smoot included. They would be great as a whole, if they forced more turnovers, but there's potential in the young ones - barnes and tryon. Barnes has great potential as a rookie. And from the early reports, Tryon seems to be coming on in his second year.

I think it's already been documented that there are a few weaknesses in everyone's game with all of the dbs, but overall they are above average group with the potential to be great.

If Smoot is our best corner this year, I'll jump off a bridge.
