I can't believe all this graveling over a Scrub who has never mustered the talent or Nuts to start for one of the 32 teams in the NFL.
I see comments like "this team was going to develope him but some (insert unproven college QB name here) fell into there laps so they cut him" bla bla bla.
Until I see something on the field in a Regular season game, I think Nolan is an idiot and has runied the confidence of a Young, VERY high paid QB. Smith so far in his carrer has the "David Carr" syndrome (been knocked on his arse so many times he has nightmares), not too mention only 1 good OC,an injury and a coach who pretty much gave up on him.
Either way I know Smith is a Man and he needs to step up and deal with it and play some ball, but I would rather go down giving Smith a chance then burn like some fools with 2 scrubs under center like JT and Hill!!
I hope I am eating crow in December
I'm really the only one putting myself on the line saying this guy will excel. If others feel the same join me now. The entire point of taking risks is to back something. I am not playing politician on this one because I believe in his attributes that he brings. I believe in his skill set. I know my QBs and if he's a bust, then you won't ever see me comment on any QBs from now on except for cheering one on AFTER he does something well.
JTO will make his mistakes but he will do more good than bad overall. You guys can do the wait-and-see and then jump on and you will be welcome on this bandwagon as we are all fans of the same team.
I'm not being overly excited for no reason. There are attributes I look for in a QB and JTO has them. I back that no matter what.
I'm sorry, but if you still think Smith has it, then I can say the same comments you say about JTO supporters to you. All in all, I also feel that the only reason why Hill isn't #2 is because of Smith's contract. I have always felt this and there is a reason why Smith won't be here if he is not the starter and Hill will.
