Steve Smith wasn't lying...

80 posts in this topic

Brayton didn't have a great day but one offsides call hardly means he isn't good. No one on our team had a good day, so your argument doesn't really make sense. Should we cut every player on our team?

Also, Smith just put the team on his back to bring them down field and then threw a sick block to let Lafell in for the TD. Dude sucks.

Brayton's play led to the Rams putting 7 on the board. Both the offsides and then getting his feet caught in cement on a screen. But, by all means, feel free to ride his jock all the way into retirement.

My argument makes plenty of sense.

Smitty's play took possible points off of the board for us with his drops and fumble. Great, awesome, he threw a block to get 7 points on the board after he got us down with his play in the first place.

So Smith threw a block for a TD in garbage time and he's redeemed? Get out.

He's just as much of a problem as anyone else on this team right now. Drops, fumbles, really?

And whomever said "Who else is he going to throw too?" were you on vacation last week? Gettis 2 TD's, LaFell 91 yards, wake up. The coaches blew it too, horrible playcalling once again. Stupid Cleveland reject calling offense.

I have an idea, let's come out the next week, against a sub-par team, after our 2 rookie WR's had a coming out day, and NOT throw to them. Let's go back to locking onto Smith.

And Smith is at fault also cause I know he's demanding passes and whining. I'm tired of him. Trade for something.

I have a better idea. Get rid of your #1 receiver whose presence drew the attention and coverage of the defense and thereby took the pressure off our rookie receivers and allowed them to "come out." That will solve our problems :rolleyes:.

You're ridiculous. No one on defense except maybe Anderson and Beason played well today. I never once said that Brayton was All-Pro material, just that he deserved to be a starter given our DE core. That absolutely remains true.

No, you thinking there's that big of a gap from Brayton DOWN to CJ and Hardy is ridiculous. Could Brayton bring down that WR down in the openfield like Hardy did on a pass? And he ran him down from behind. OR could he run down Bradford like Hardy did? Which would've been a sack on at least half of the QBs in the NFL but Bradford threw it away. CJ leads the DL in sacks. Yet you believe Brayton is still better than both of them?

It's your line of thinking and "loyalty" to players like Brayton playing in front of more talented players that had James Anderson sitting behind Na'il fuging Diggs for years while he rotted on the bench. I said Anderson should've been given that spot in his 2nd year. To my knowledge, he hasn't put on much if any weight, and he was VT's best performer in the weight room before we drafted him... so go ahead and give me an excuse about his strength or whatever as to why he wasn't playing.

Same reason Jake was starting after his failures. Same reason DJ stayed on this team for as many years as he did... What was it, 4?

You have a problem with someone suggesting Smitty be traded, or should've been traded? He's had multiple injuries. He's 30+. He doesn't look like the same player he used to be. When he does make the catch, he's going down on first contact. That hardly ever happened before.

A lot of the elite WRs, like Smitty WAS, can play into their mid-late 30s and still be good-great... Like Rice did or T.O. is doing right now. Difference is, those guys are bigger and have the size to compensate for diminishing skills. Smitty doesn't. He's thrived off unparalleled athleticism and now that he's losing it and has injured himself repeatedly, he's not going to out jump many guys for balls, or out-strengthen or outrun guys after the catch.

Tell me how the Patriots have done over the last 9 years or so??? Now tell me how loyal are to players? Exactly. But, I understand, as a fan base all we have known is consistent inconsistency and mediocrity, so I know you don't know or expect any better.

Hey homer, how well did that work out today?

That's not homerism, that's basic intelligence and common sense. Get rid of Smith and Gettis gets doubled. I like our rookie receivers but they're not going to be busting coverages without another threat to take pressure off of them.

And yes, Smith is getting old, losing a bit of speed, which is his game. The reason TO is having a much much better season than Smith is cause he has size and other skills that are still useful at his age.
