[QUOTE=Baddniss;3517277]No chance Tanny makes this deal with the intent of having E.Smith start at Safety.No way. Smith is simply not that good.
Sorry to say that in front of all you HOMERS, but its true. Jets are working to build a WORLD-CLASS defense. Eric Smith has no part of starting in a defense like that.
Guys, again, I am sure Tanny has something up his sleeve, and there is more coming soon..[/QUOTE]
I hear ya..Smith stepped up just fine when Rhodes was benched but it's impossible for me to think they are happy with him back there as a full time starter. I really don't think they would've just done this deal without some kind of legitimate back up plan. And I don't mean them just hoping someone great falls to them in the draft at 29. I am very curious to see how they fill this hole now.
