    I think it was Gunther Cunningham who said in Smith's draft that these big tall CB's can't play off coverage because of their hips...ironically, he pointed out Nnamdi as the only one that could do it despite playing press man 80 percent of the time in Oakland

    And it's not like it has to be man if he presses...it's ok when we play cover 2 to have him disrupt routes.
    This, he isnt an off man or zone corner...couple that with the fact that he doesnt have enough experience to truly read the QB, learn tendencies on WR's, etc. and its a recipe for disaster.

Getting Suggs back is huge, and he should get better and better each week, which will take some pressure off of Smith and the other CBs. Putting pressure on the QB changes everything, just ask Flacco today.
    Its not just this game. He's sucked since he's been here. Pressure from the front 7 helps most corners, but Smith is totally overmatched out there and will continue to get beat no matter how much pressure we put on the quarterback.

    Williams shouldn't be a starting CB on a low quality D. Seriously, I think that Oher and McKinnie could cover receivers better than Williams and Smith.

    [QUOTE=pslholder96;507186]I think it's unfair to judge Smith prematurely. He still a "rookie" given that he missed a few games last year and was also further back on the depth chart. The next 9 games will provide a good sample of what he is and what he's not.[/QUOTEi

    This may not have been his worst day so far as a Raven. He stunk it up bad @ San Diego last year. The [very short] book on him will continue to be the double move, until he overcomes it. This season will be huge for his development, but at some cost to the Ravens. Webb is a devastating loss for a secondary getting precious little help from pass rush.
    More press coverage, please (from Williams, as well) Certainly worth a try w/ Jimmy: he was drafted for size & strength. If he's bumping more, it might be easier to resist the fakes.

    He really needs to step it up. With Webb lost for the season, Smith needs to get his act together.

    The problem is that he doesn't have an act to get together. The Ravens just have to face the fact that they whiffed on a first round pick.

    He's big and strong and fast.

    Take a breath, guys. Each win was worth only one win, this loss was worth only one loss.

    Let's see what happens next time he steps onto the field.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    So after 1 season, 7 games into season #2, a couple of starts and you're ready to label the guy as a bust?

    This is my biggest complaint, a post like this that's void of any rational thought

    Some posters think that every player every week should play at an all pro level ...or they are a bust.

    How about playing just average for one week? He's been terrible every time he walks on the field. If he was drafted in the 5th or 6th round, then sure, we'll cut him some slack, but if we don't get more out of a 1st round pick midway through their 2nd season, its a problem. He's not even growing as a player. There is nothing about his game that is any better than week 1 of last year. He may be big and fast, but he has absolutely no football talent.

    I agree with you completely man!

    I've been saying this exact same thing all year and people act like I'm crazy.

    Jimmy Smith is garbage and it'll only be a matter of time until everyone starts admitting it.

    Jimmy is only 24.

    And thanks to injuries, he's only played 18 regular season games + 2 playoff games, for just over a full season's worth of experience.

    And this is his second D co-ordinator, so he's had to learn a new D.

    Let's not be so hasty here.

    He's also been playing the slot and now he's a starting corner. Hopefully he will improve
