AS is above average. He is better than the scrubs we had. That doesn't mean he's the guy to lead you to a SB victory. He isn't. It is possible for him to improve W-L total when the rest of our QBs SUCK, and to be talented, but still be a world away from a SB winning QB. His playoff record is 2-5. Smith puts up lots of decent stats against average and losing teams and then hooches it when it counts, in significant measure because he is conservative to a fault and a checkdown QB. Trading for him was an AWFUL decision.
