Troy Smith sucks, he chocked big time in college. I trust Ravens QB coaching staff and I'm sure they cut Smith for a reason. I'd trust Davis more than I would Troy if A. Smith gets hurts. Come on Carr sucks, he should be 3rd string. If somehow Carr has to play for Smith, our season is over.
According to Ozzie Newsome (Ravens GM) Smith was cut due to Baltimore's injury issues in the secondary (and how they would rather have depth over 3 QBs), it's becoming a new fad in the league to ride the 'Tecmo Superbowl' option.
I've been talking to a lot of Ravens fans and beat writers within the past 3 hours, and they were all honestly infuriated that Smith was screwed out of the #2 spot by Marc Bulger in the first place. They all say the same thing: Troy Smith was the safest backup QB option in the entire AFC North between 2008-2009
Some are even saying that Troy Smith could woo Sing to push him to the #2 spot by mid-season (due to his insane work ethic off the field).
