Enter the much maligned A. Smith, we were down 21 every one knew we had to throw the ball. I knew it you knew it Houston's defense defiantly knew it, and yet A. Smith got it done!
I have been critical of Smith, and Hill for that matter, but the more I think about last sunday the more I realize what a truly special moment that second half was. I hope we can see many more such special moments from A. Smith.
So the one thing about A. Smith from last week is this, He did what Frank Gore has not been able to do all season. Smith put the team on his back and threw when everyone knew he would, hats off to him!
That's arguable. Gore has been someone that other defenses gameplan against. They study his tendencies, formations, etc.
The Texans didn't even know who Smith was
How would the Texans not know who Smith was? I am sure that they knew that if Hill continued to struggle like had had in the past that Smith would come in. I knew it and there were a lot of other fans that knew it as well. MM and MB kind of hinted at it. So I am sure it wasn't a secret.
