As I read the piece below, why Alex Smith on the back of my mind the whole time!?
Have you talked to Troy Smith and did you see the leadership qualities for which he's known?
KW: Not so much one on one. I've talked to him a couple of times, and there's certain guys that get to this level who you never feel like a situation is too big for them. They have a calm about them. And, to a man, when you talk to someone about Troy Smith, and what I've seen from him when I talked to him, he's got that same thing. Where it just seems like - it's al most like he's got life under control. Football's just a part of it, but it's not the most important thing. And I think you need that to be successful - realizing that it's not all about football. And you can settle in and no matter what happens - good, bad - it's not going to define you. And with that comes a confidence that, I'm going to be just fine no matter what. So you love having those guys on your team, especially the quarterback because you know nothing's going to faze him. If something goes wrong, ok, I'm going to line up and I'm going to do it again. If something goes great, well, I expected that to happen. And that's kind of the feeling you get with Troy and that's kind of the impression he's made on all of his teammates even though he's only played a couple of games for them. He's got that feel about him. And that's rare, and I think that's important at the position.
