On Smith's 19 passes targeted at Crabtree, he has six completions for 81 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions. Quarterback rating: 6.6.
On Smith's 100 passes targeted at other receivers, he has 66 completions for 651 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Quarterback rating: 86.7.
Let's not pretend that 86.7 is a good QB rating. That would be good enough to rank 16th in the league.
Subtract all of his work against the team's best corner and he still can barely get to an average quarterback.
Play calling on the Road with a young OLine didn't play any part in that right? Did you NOT see that Smith averages over 90 in most cases. Not good enough to be top 7 or even 8. But not bad for a guy people refer to as a Bust.
Face it, Smith is NOT as bad as he's made out to be around here. I hope Johnson can actually call a good flow of calls to keep momentum in our favor. Not calling two Screens on top of each other, not calling a FB Dive when a HB Counter would work better. I would like to see more Play Action, which Raye RARELY ever called. Smith can sell fakes to the RB pretty damn well. I just never understood why Raye and Sing did not get together and create a game plan using a lot of Play Action. Especially when they went to the Spreadcoast last season. Maybe 1 or 2 out of every 15 plays was Play Action. And that's being generous on my part.
I'm not going to hold my breath for a good outcome in Atlanta, but we should at least be in the same building in the event of a Loss.
We were not even in the same zip codes in Shattle and Kansas Shatty.
Every team has 8 road games a year. Everyone else faces the same stuff Alex does.
If you selectively pick out stats...
I'm just going to agree with you that hopefully Johnson brings out the best in him. I don't think the season is lost just yet.
Ummmm isn't this what YOU do?
