It just doesn't seem like Smith is at any greater risk than some of our other key guys, ex. Jordan Gross or Chris Gamble.
But he is small and plays like he's had too many Red Bulls, so I guess the comment makes some sense.
I think most of these comments are generalities and while there may be some truth and rationale behind it you have to take it with a grain of salt. I don't think there is enough time and or effort to do in depth reporting. The worst I've seen so far is pro football talk weekly preview mag. Panthers havea15 game schedule as they omitted the first game against the bucs.
