And the reason for them to do that was even more disheartening. It wasn't good for the defense because they already knew what the play would be run. And here I thought practices are for both offense and defense. Defense was the bomb and offense was just an ugly step child to be tolerated. WTF!
This is the main reason I changed my mind about Smith, when we drafted him I thought it was a mistake to draft a project qb with the first pick of the draft. But an even bigger mistake was to start him year one on a team with no talent. Then I hear about how in practice they only run plays once, and if it is sloppy, they just go on to the next one. I could not believe a professional coaching staff would be so idiotic as to not try to get it right. Even in my high school days our coach would make us run the plays until every player was able to execute that play without having to think about it. Did any of you other former coaches/players ever just move on to the next play? Things like that made me believe that Smith could be a starter if he had any real coaching.
