Problem is, Jason Smith isn't average.
He's just as terrible as Hunter, except now we're paying our terrible backup RT an additional $1.5 million in salary.
We better hope that Howard can maintain his level of play that he showed sunday night, because we shouldn't be relying on Smith in any sort of starting capacity.
