Simmons on Eric Smith
• The Mole Award, given out to the player who seems most like he's secretly working for the other team (this year: Eric Smith)
Simmons just doesn't know football Eric Smith is an excellent safety..just ask Rex.....
He doesn't dog it out there, he's just too slow and unathletic to cover anyone
Smith has to go but in fairness to him there isnt a safety in the league than can cover Gronkowski man-to-man. I blame Rex and Pettine for a poor scheme.

People keep bringing this up, but Eric Smith hasn't covered anyone successfully since last year......Wake up people, it's not just the Patriots game, he has been a joke all season

I want to get rid of Smith as much as anybody but he has not been as bad as we think. Teams just do a good job at exploiting him b.c he is the weakpoint in the secondary.

And before anyone mentions it . . . I know safety is a pass first position.
