the only thing that saves Sings job is a super bowl run, Dude is a goner.
I agree with you and your excitement towards Troy Smith, really interested in seeing how he performs now that he is getting all the reps
Certainly interested as well, as he continues to grow in the play book.. But what i am most interested in seeing, is........... How does he respond when more and more tape becomes available for other teams and they really get a better sense of how to game plan for him, ya know....
The big test will be when he plays against teams that can bring pressure from the outside and keep him in the pocket. Given the inconsistency of Staley and Davis, that could create problems for a 6' 0" guy trying to look over a bunch of 6' 5+" guys in front of him.
The current OL has been very ineffective in creating throwing lanes for the QB. If Troy is contained to the pocket, and the OL cannot keeps the hands of opposing DL down, it could be a long day. Let's hope Solari and Brown do some mighty coaching up over this break.
