That was pretty awesome. I'd still argue that the Saints game was his true turning point if it wasn't the David Carr chants, sure in the NFCCG we only completed 1 pass to a damn WR but since that Saints game Alex has been killing it.
Agreed. In my mind, last year was where we saw Smith turn the corner. This year is a progression of that.
We saw him steadily improve last year and begin to do things he'd never done in his career before-- first in Philly, then Tampa, then in Detroit, and his pinnacle, crowning achievement turning point was against New Orleans. That is the game where he showed that he could play with the best in the league.
