The people who matter get it.
“I know it’s not pretty when Jake and I hook up, but the results are what counts,” Smith said.
(Jake) Him and I might be a little unorthodox in the way we do things, but I think we work well together and we’re just going to try to keep it going.”
Coach John Fox insisted Delhomme’s throw was more than just a veteran quarterback “chucking the ball” in the air and hoping for the best.
In his opinion, the pass was the result of years of work and timing developed between Delhomme and Smith, as well as a lot of other things going right, too.
"At the end of the day, it was a pretty good ball and an excellent catch, and those two guys have done that over time this season and in seasons past," Fox said. "I'm sure Drew Brees and his receivers have had situations like that over the course of the year. So has every quarterback-receiver combination. They do it pretty well."
Guess he "locked on to Smitty" too since Smitty was option #3 on that play.
