    Torrey Smith on the players lost to Free Agency



    I don't know if this was posted before, but...

    I like what he says about all of the players lost and cut. I really like how he answered the question asked at the 2:35 mark of this video. Maybe this will help keep fans off of the ledge.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    The reality is that the passing offense, as far as the WRs and TEs are concerned, began with Torrey Smith. His presence not only allowed Boldin to see single coverage, but against second and third CBs. It also opened up Pitta against LBs. You don't know if you are going to get a Y or X WR to make the tough catches with defenders over him, but you are certainly going to get a WR who doesn't have to make so many of those catches. That is why they were not afraid to get rid of Boldin.

    And a lot of people don't understand this. The game Denver divisional game where they left Torrey singled (against Champ Bailey), Torrey had 2 TD's.

    Now all they need to do is draft Tavon Austin. Imagine Austin getting single coverage in the slot with space to run.

    I can't imagine him making it past the Vikings; they've got two first rounders to play with to try to replace Harvin.

    It's not just Minnesota at 21 and 23. St. Louis lost Amendola, so Austin could go off the board at 16 or 22, if Tampa Bay doesn't grab him at 13 for Josh Freeman. I can't see any scenario where Austin drops past those five picks.

    As for Torrey Smith's perspective on the off-season moves, he's right on the money.

    I keep misreading the title thinking it says, 'Torrey Smith Lost to Free Agency,' and freaking out. I've done it about four times now

    I know Austin is top of the list for a lot of you guys but man is he small. Is he another Percy Harvin or Dexter McCluster?

    He's 100x's the player McCluster is.

    He's not really Harvin either as Harvin is much bigger.

    I think he's a mixture of Wes Welker, Percy Harvin and Eric Metcalf

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Remember these words and then be sure to sleep with your night light on: "DESMOND HOWARD"

    I remember similar hype about McCluster, that's all I'm saying. and even Howard was bigger than Austin.... the dude is small

    Austin is small, but he won't take many direct, full impact hits at all

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    eventually they all do. I will be happy that the Ravens will not be able to draft him

    If the Ravens don't get him, I hope he ends up in the NFC, which is the most likely scenario (with Tampa Bay, St. Louis, Minnesota all NFC teams).

    To me he seems like a mix between Randall Cobb and Percy Harvin. I'm telling you guys Austin is going to be a beast in the NFL. I'm not worried about his size at all. You look at someone like Darren Sproles who is 5'6" or Wes Welker who is 5'8". The height or size doesn't matter because he can play. People said the same things about Russel Wilson. They said he was a great player in college, but he was too short/small to make it in the NFL.

    So are you saying Desmond Howard was worth his 1st round status? Because until he was with the Packers, he was really the brunt of many a joke. He was a total bust from 1991 until 1996. We already have a Desmond Howard type player and his name is Jacoby Jones.
