    He looked better than Wayne Hunter. That is a 2 inch hurdle.
    Isn't that the first key hurdle? He costs the same as Hunter and played better. All we can say is that he played without a mistake on his first competition with the Jets. Which is all he can do at this stage.

    Considering Hunter's very first snap at LT in the Panthers game against 2's and 3's in the 2nd half was a total whiff on a pass rusher and yet another sack (on Tebow), that's good enough for me.

    Smith showed a lot, his range was impressive, showed good push in the running game, defenders seemed to bounce off of him, and I loved how after every run, he was always the first OL'n to pick up the RB from the ground, throwing off defenders to do it. This has to be what Ryan saw, it was impressive.

    Smith has me as excited as any other pick-up the Jets have had so far this year, that's saying something. I love his comments in this article too, maybe the pressure was too much, let him settle down, and climb his way back to the top, this kid has a chance to eventually become the starting RT, Howard has to still perform.
    Thanks Ray; I haven't had a chance to really watch the game. I did see Smith hustling and getting team mates off the ground.
