Or if Smith would catch wide open passes to him? Or not commit dumb penalties? Or not fumble it.

Good thing the other WR's showed up today and put Smith on their back and carried him. I hope Smith is back to his old self next week though.

Bull poo, sir. He dropped ONE pass, and anyone who doesn't think that Smith's presence drawing the defense's coverage didn't open the field up for Lafell and Gettis knows nothing about football.

I agree, that's what should be happening if you're double teaming smith the whole game.

Gettis coming into his own is the key. That will keep some heat off Smith and the running game, allow LaFell time to develop. Gettis has been the find so far this year, with Hardy being a close second.

I think this team could become a really good offense if defenses start to realize Moore can beat them with his arm. Hopefully when this happens, Otah is back, because the running game should return and at that point we're going to be an unpredictable offense with 2 tough to stick WRs and 2 good RBs.

With guys like Lafell, Goodson and Sutton making up the rest, this team could became dangerous.

Interesting how one game can show you so much potential.

Indeed, he helped the other WR's by being on the field. But stop being a homer, Smith had a bad game, and it was nice watching other players pick up the slack for once. This is how it should go. His dropped pass may have got us another field goal, so it was pretty important. You know Smith is going to come out next week with fire, after 2 other WR's did better than him on this team.

If these guys keep stepping up, we could have a good WR core going to the future. Devin Thomas didn't even get to play and Clowney seems to be solid enough.

Smith wasn't that bad. He had some unfortunate fumbles and that penalty was a weak call. He still was still drawing coverage for the other guys. He had some good punt returns when he shouldn't have been risking himself out there anyway.

double coverage on Smitty gave those rookies a chance to make plays

I hope the 3 guys could be our Arizona 3 WRs corps before Boldin & Warner were gone. Someone here once keep calling LaFell as "LaFail", which is laughable considering he is a rookie & getting better. People who label LaFell as LaFail don't know crap about football if you call him without knowing he is a rookie & some don't make play right away. :rolleyes:

Matt Moore made them all look like Jerry Rice.

We call him LaFail because up until the second half of todays game the guy dropped 9 out of 10 balls thrown his way....
