Smith Scramble

One thing Smith has always shown is leg strength and upper body strength when a lineman or defensive player gets a hand on him. He doesn't go down very easily or he fights through the sack attempt to run it. Now, only if he can calm himself enough to fight through it, run, stop and make a throw similar to Big Ben.

Yeah. There was a play where he scrambled to the right and threw it out of bounds (like old times? lol). He had a second where he could have planted his feet and maybe launched a pass down the field if he had one

Big Ben's advantage with shrugging off tacklers is that, well, he is big.

I would have liked to have seen Smith put on some more size than he has, but perhaps that would affect his mobility.

But we have sen Smith shrug off tacklers more than twice and there are times the defender is forced to ride him to the groundwhen he does get sacked. He can build on that.
