I think fighting for the ball certainly is a mind set. Its total speculation, but I think if our Wrs anticipated the ball being thrown to them in tight coverage or jump scenerios, I think they would keep that mentality with them in the game. Who knows though. We certainly dont have anyone on the roster worthy of number one reciever title.
Football isn't easy to analyze, which is why there are always so many different views of each play. Some people want to blame a QB for not seeing everything they see on their TV or from the stands and sometimes this is true of other positions as well. Seattle was trying to shut down the pass and allowing some great runs by Gore, but if they had stacked the box the game might have become more open to passing.
Smith talked about the Hawks stacking the box and then quickly dropping back, as Baltimore did last year, so he had to be careful not to prejudge where to throw the ball.
It is also very possible for Smith to have a bad game or two, or a mediocre game and this team can still beat pretty good teams...just not the NYGs.
Edit: we can certainly agree on the bold...which is why I would like to see what Jenkins can do.
