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)", http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com.

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.

Re: smoot's ranking

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.

Re: smoot's ranking

Re: smoot's ranking

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

Re: smoot's ranking

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.

Re: smoot's ranking

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.

Re: smoot's ranking

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.

I thought Smoot and springs did a good jod against Owens last year. First game two catches for 24 yards 1 TD. Second 6 catches 47 yards no Tds and one lost fumble. That sound like numbers with Brunell at QB. LOL

Re: smoot's ranking

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?

Re: smoot's ranking

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

Re: smoot's ranking

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.

Re: smoot's ranking

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.
