Can you do it in front of 75 thousand live fans and millions on TV while 300 pound lineman are trying to rip your head off?
Nate has 'IT', whatever it might be. It is as obvious that he does as it is that Smith doesn't.
this and the davis will hop smith within the 3 weeks has got to be the stupidest post ever
Let's break it down further, bro -- since you are either a Smith apologist or don't know what you are seeing.
Smith has never shown the elusiveness and natural feel in the pocket that Davis has shown this preseason. Never. Never.
Granted, Smith has led a comeback (AZ) and one strong win (SEA) from a few years back. I was right along cheering during those wins. But almost never, even in those games he won, did he make plays that made you go 'yeah!'
Davis out there has an electricity to his play. Knows where the rush is coming from, keeps his eyes open. Doesn't panic. Shoots a lazer out to the far hash when needed - a throw that few starting QBs in the NFL can make. Quick release. Quick decisions.
You know what I see, when I see Davis out there? A glimmer of fricken hope -- that's what I see.
When Smith plays, it is more like 'ah God...'
Now I know, he is just a rookie, and this is just the preseason. I've seen too many games to get too worked up. But many seem to agree (heck, even the San Diego announcers that did the game down here) that this guy can play (they jumped on his nuts during the play he completed a short pass with the defensive lineman draped all over him).
No one, and I mean no one, is saying that about Smith now.
So what, exactly is so stupid about my comment? What are you watching?
