Oh whatever dude he's a professional athlete. He needs to step up to the plate and take charge. I could care less if he throws picks, that's what rookies do. But this chicken, candyass play is unacceptable. No one expects him to be Tom Brady, just get out there and play and sling the ball around. At least show that you're trying to be the leader that you always talk about being for this team.
Of course he does, but there is such a small amount of players who have been successful in the type of situation he is in. He has been poor, no one can deny that, but it's clear he should have sat this year and who knows what would have happened.
Frankly I am not too big into just slating people. These are the guys who play for the team we support.
If you look at the disparity between Smith's numbers with Moore and Clausen you can see why they blame Clausen. It's pretty black and white.
He's a 23 year old man who has had everything handed to him in life and is finally facing some adversity, don't feel too bad for him. You can't believe it because as has been reported before, some people were paid to hype him, inflate his draft stock. Don't believe everything everyone tells you and do some analyzing yourself and you'll see the truth.
Impossible to pay 'some people' to inflate his draft stock as that would be a lot of people and a lot of money. The thing is virtually everyone out there had him up there, so you think the family paid even single source?
I am not talking about Smith's numbers. He has dropped a lot of catchable balls this year and has not been able to beat defenders like he has in the past. People are even starting to blame Clausen for this as well, which is just a little far fetched.
Clausen has played poorly, but so has Smith. Do not excuse Smith because of Clausen's poor play. Smith was struggling with the same issues when Moore was slinging it.
That's what gets said after you realize a bust is a bust.
Yeah of course it's looking like he is not translating to the NFL. However there have been plenty of guys who come on in their 2nd and 3rd years. Unfortunately this season may have stunted any progression he could of been developing by learning on the sidelines.
He looks like a bust now, but I would imagine most would in this team right now. It's no surprise that our team starts to click when Davidson finally does something different with the reverse to Smitty.
