Steve Smith picks Sheldon Richardson?.......

47 posts in this topic

I liked his comments about Hurney relying too much on unproven rookies to start. Also note he doesnt think we need a number 1 receiver to replace him. Doesn't sound like a guy planning to leave anytime soon.

Remember that time Thomas Davis and Beason didn't think we needed to draft another LB?

How'd that work out?

no comparison unless Smitty tore his Achilles or is coming off of multiple ACL surgeries.

He makes a good point about Hurney.

As far as not drafting a WR....name a player that advocates drafting someone at his position. Before Steve got Cam he was ready for help...now help just steals touches

If you heard the rest of the interview you would understand what he was talking about.

Somebody called the radio show and was dogging Lafell (like some of you do here) . Steve said the WR's corp wasn't the reason for the slow start on offense. He said Chud was calling plays like he had last years Oline. He said he lafell Olsen and Murphy would be running wide open but the Oline couldn't block for the play and Cam would be in survival mode. He felt like their was a disconnect from Chud and the roster. He also said that Gross had a lot on his shoulder trying to cover up for Amini who was swimming at the beginning of the year. Smith didn't understand why people were talking down on Gross.

Didn't he call Murphy last year to encourage him to come here. Smith is not selfish anymore. He knows his time is coming to an end. He would welcome more guys to compete against. When has Smitty ever backed down from competition.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
