He's faced Talib twice a season for a few seasons and he excels vs bigger receivers. I'm feelin good about that matchup.

I don't think Talib is a shadow one receiver type CB. Doesn't he stay on one side in their base defense? I could be wrong but I thought at least in TB he stayed on the left only.

He is in NE now. Belichick does whatever. He shadowed a TE all game the other day.

Aqib Talib is Prime Time this year, Steve Smith will not get anything. Alfonzo Dennard on the other side is no cake walk either

Lmao Check some highlights Talib is Smiths bitch.

If I were you I would be more concerned about your run defense...

Talib is in a better scheme in NE that allows him to press and play man coverage (his strength) on WR compared to cover 2. I look for smitty to be average or less. Talib has been shadowing the #1 passing threat up until his injury.

I would love for Smitty to have a big game.  You know he has to be mad at himself for the drops.  A mad Smitty is a good Smitty.


By the way, we have seen drops this year, but have not seen them 2 games in a row.

Dude, when you keep a team's #1 passing option to 50 yards or less and usually no TD.... that is shutting him down lol.  He definitely has had drops but the guy just isn't elite anymore, on a consistent basis.  I can't wait till we get Cam a legit #1 WR, we'll really see how he can play.   


For one example, Reavis basically shut down Smith in the Tampa Game.


Smith can still have a nice clutch catch (after dropping a couple earlier) but he hasn't gone off in a while.   We shouldn't expect him to.  it's stupid he's our #1 anyway, we should have someone else in there taking up that role by now.


that's the problem you guys are expecting smith to blast off for a 100 yards or near it every game when in fact his production like i stated previously has drop because he himself throw in that ginn,lafell, and olsen are all contributing equally. Don't get me wrong he's not the same SS from 05 and we do need to draft a replacement next year but i think some of you guys overblow the whole smitty thing, guy is still the heart of our offense, hell the team. What he brings to the table cannot be replace easily but saying he's lost a step because he drops the ball more then usually is beyond me, he's still getting good separation.

If Talib is there he wont. But if he is on fire he will.

Rather than Smitty, I can see Ginn having a huge game. As long as Cam can actually get some time to settle and make a deep throw.

With our offense, we really don't need any of our WRs to go off. Instead, we just need everyone to catch the ball which has been a problem. Truth be told, Ginn and Olson present our biggest match up advantages (other than our RBs). I love Smitty, but he is really a possession type receiver now.
