After the Colts scored to go up 14-18, Smith had 2 drives to respond but he missed on both.
Right after the Colts went up 18 pts, Smith did a very good job moving the ball down to about the 20. Made some nice throws. He also missed on a few too. But the delay of game at 3rd and 7 which made it 3rd and 12 is inexcusable. He should correct this problem in the next game and the rest of the games. Unfortunately it ended in a sack, whether it was a coverage sack or it could be Smith held on to the ball longer I'm not sure. But it was a 3 man rush! which is almost inexcusable for the O-line.
In the second drive, Smith and the offense again did a very good job moving the ball from inside the 10. Again Smith made some good throws, but he also missed on a big one down the middle to Bruce. Not sure what happen there. Then it was 3rd and 10. On this play, the announcer said there's no one open but I think there was 1 maybe 2 open on the replay. Smith had time, the O-line did a very good job protecting, but Smith ran too soon when he could have stayed in there longer to give the WRs time to get open. Ran right into Freeney for a sack. I think that one would have been another big completion had he stayed with it.
We are going to light it up on somebody real soon 'cause the passing game looks really promising. It needs a little more work but we are going to be very good passing the ball
