Let's keep this in perspective. Smith was a stop-gap solution at best. Even if he could play, he'd have a maximum 2 years. Losing him now will only give other guys (Boone) more opportunity to develop. Naturally, in retrospect, drafting Oher appears the better move, but, as has been pointed out, the vast majority of us were ecstatic when Crabtree fell into our lap. Don't be fairweather fans and don't blame Scotty for circumstance. Singletary's plan is long-term and long-haul, so lets not get hung up on the short-term. We all want to win now, but realistically, our run is at least a few years away. The important thing is we're visibly building towards it. Things seem to be falling apart in some areas, but the important thing is we appear to be on the right track. Don't lose sight of the long-term goal, because that's where we're headed.
