The bar has been raised, no longer is just getting into the playoffs the major goal anymore its pretty much a given. This team needs to start thinking big picture and think about setting themselves up for a run at the super bowl and getting past green bay. Start thinking about getting Gore fully healthy as well cutting back the snaps for some of the defensive studs against the weaker teams. This team is for real and can compete for the ultimate prize.
So what is your assessment of Smith now?
Alex showed some big brass balls taking the game by the throttle like that after losing Gore. I think a HUGE part of that is due to smart play calling by Roman, who is well aware of what Alex's limitations and weaknesses are....although they did show a ton of faith in letting him matriculate it downfield in the first half.
What we saw today from Alex will get the job done. The whole job, all the way to Indianapolis. We got half a season left, so lets hope he stays consistent.
