    troy smith back on the crawl



    Steelers released him. Anybody think he latches on with somebody else? I doubt it, unless its in an arena or canada.

    I never had a doubt that Smith should have gone to the CFL. The Ravens wasted a 5th round pick on Smith, who was too little and inaccurate to be an NFL QB.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    I wouldnt say "wasted", he was an adequate back up at the time, and was used effectively when the "wildcat" was in its heyday. They did right by getting rid of him when they did. Im also thankful things fell the way we did and he didnt get a chance to start. Would have been a disaster, instead of an AFCC season, but i still think wasted is a little harsh for a guy that did give us some value.

    Well if not for a timely stomach virus he would have been the starter. What a disaster that season would have been.

    Meh ...... perhaps there's a better term than "wasted", although I didn't recall any significant wildcat big gains outside of one looping pass to Flacco. However, there was a benefit that only a 5th rounder could provide: Smith's low salary for 4 years enabled Ozzie pay the vets.

    Well, he was better than Boller who we wasted a 1st round pick on!

    As long as he crawls away from Baltimore I don't care where he goes.

    Honestly, it was a wash with those two. Coming in to relieve Boller, he didn't exactly close the door on a winless Dolphins team.

    He'll probably catch on as a camp body somewhere for a little while.

    Smith was the type of guy that players could like. However, there is a reason why coaches coach and players play. I rolled my eyes when I heard the players talking about Smith needing to get a chance.

    I knew that Smith was done when I saw him do a dance in the end zone versus Detroit. It was the fourth quarter and they were already up by darn near thirty points. Yet, in the rain, this fool is dancing.

    All I can say is I hope he saved some of his money.

    I kinda think some team may bring him in to compete for the backup or #3 spot and potentially run some gadget plays. Not sure if he'll make the 53 but he should get some looks. I wish him luck, no hard feelings but it wasn't meant to be in Charm City

    I wouldn't say it was a wasted pick. The 5th round is a good spot for a flier such as that. If they'd caught lightning in a bottle, nobody would be complaining. It is what it is.

    That said, I wonder if Troy finally makes it to Cleveland, lol....talk about a guy with an inflated self worth (as a player of course, he might be a great guy off the field).
