Even if we lose in Indianapolis, the season looks good from here on out. What was our problem all year? Offense. We may have just found our solution. If we can put that offense together with our great defense, we are one dangerous team.
Most important of all, the future looks bright right about now. I couldn't say the same thing when Hill was in there.
I'd rather lose with the most talented guys we have. There's no shame in that. We put out our best players and best effort, and we lost. It happens. It's another thing to have your best guys on the bench. When Hill makes a mistake, I think, "Man, this is hopeless. We're wasting time. We're not going to develop him anyway." When Smith makes a mistake, I think, "It's OK. Smith is still young and learning. At least he has the talent, all he needs is some coaching and experience." With Smith in there, it's much easier to be a fan of this team.
