why is he still on this team?
Eric did a nice job for the Jets yesterday...that's sarcastic because, in fact, he did not.
Let's complain about him.
he plays in limited snaps and still manages to **** up.
why he still sees the field is beyond me.
To be fair, on the 15 yard helmet to helmet penalty, he really did try his best to crush that guy who was already tackled and down.
The guy is an decent back-up who gives u a ton of effort... both on def and special teams....
Glad he is not a starter... but frankly we have a ton more bigger issues..
Some genius thought it was a good idea to have Smith in 1-on-1 coverage against Fasano late in the game. Tannehill promptly left a 20+ yard gain on the field due to a bad throw - Fasano was wide open.
How do you know when a player really sucks? When the refs make a bad call on him but you still blame the player because he was on the field in the first place.
Eric Smith smells like pee.
not sure why Rex has a hard-on for this guy. We would've been better off with Jim Leonhard instead.
So we drafted Josh Bush and Antonio Allen and neither can give us this?
while i dont agree with the Smith penalty on the punt, why on earth are we rushing the punter in that situation? We're going to be set up around midfield (or better) with 2 timeouts (3 until we wasted one prior to the punt) and a minute left.
you're more likely to get a penalty than a blocked punt trying to block a punt.. which is exactly what happened. two games in a row the last minutes before the half were mangled.
so what did he have:
one roughing the kicker
I thought he had a pass interference on a 3rd down play too. did he?
He was responsible in whole or in part for like 80% of the huge passing plays against us last season. Yesterday he managed to get 2 personal foul penalties in very limited snaps. He might not be able to break 5 seconds in a 40. Other than that, he's great.
Here are the facts about Eric.
1. He is a hard nosed football player.
2. He is a decent special team player.
3. He is a good 3rd teamer.
He should be given a ton of credit for bamboozaling the coaches to think he is a no 1 player and staying in the NFL this long.
Fully agree. Unless you've identified a glaring hole in the protection schemes, have the offense pinned inside the 5 yard line, or are in a desperate situation, why go for the block? Far more penalties on punt block attempts than actual blocks - why do it?you're more likely to get a penalty than a blocked punt trying to block a punt.. which is exactly what happened. two games in a row the last minutes before the half were mangled.
