Thread: Why is Eric Smith getting a free pass?

  1. #1

    Why is Eric Smith getting a free pass?

    He is as much responsible for the Vereen play as Bart Scott. At least Scott got tripped up by Welker, and has some kind of excuse for not catching Vereen. Still slow as ****, but that's beside the point.

    Eric Smith looked absolutely pathetic on this play. Any competent safety in this league does not let that happen to them.

    Because most of us have been calling for Smith's head for years now, and by now have just accepted the fact that he'll remain on the team and suck.

    Unlike Scott there was absolutely 0 reason for him to make the team to begin with. He is here because .................. Know one knows. My guess is he has something on Rex.

    Because the rb was Scott's man.

    Be careful. Some posters might think you want to have Smith's head chopped off.

    I don't think so. From what I can tell, it looks like a zone coverage play. Probaby either cover 2 or cover 3. Regardless, It's Smith's job to cover the left half (or third) of the deep field. He should not get beat there.

    However, you deserve to get burned for a TD when you have Bart Scott covering the flat with Eric Smith backing him up in the deep half. That's on Rex. Ridiculous.

    Eric Smith is the quintessential coach's pet. Mangini loved him. Rex adores him. After he gets cut this off-season whatever coach has him for the league minimum next year will be licking his balls. Until Eric Smith gets blown up by whatever Tight End is lucky enough to be covered by him.

    Great on the practice field, horrible on gameday. He has killed us for years.

    Eric Smith is garbage but that play was all on Bart or Rex for having him out there in the first place, you choose. Smith was on Welker and after he passed him off to Landry that's when he came back once he saw Bart staring at Vereen's ass. Bart should not play another down in a Jet uniform and let Davis get as much experience as possible these next five games. He's the future.

    We need to see more of Allen and Bush IMO. Bush hasn't looked bad at all. If he is ready and Allen even has promise for next year you can let Bell and Smith both walk. For 6th rounders I like both of these guys.

    If you're referring to the guy who came up at the very end by the EZ, I believe that was Bell.

    Smith has been murdering our pass defense for years. You could make a 30 minute collage of him getting torched by tight ends and fullbacks for huge plays, long td passes and goal-line tds. Eric Smith couldn't cover Jonny Mitchell with both legs broken.

    What does it matter? Mark Sanchez had a "moment" and it was over then.

    But guys he is a great 3rd safety hybrid and when used right

    It's really unbelievable how this scrub plays over promising rookies Bush and Allen......

    Smart teams will continue to isolate and pick on Eric Smith every single time he is out covering or in any kind of space.....

    Really makes me wonder what the hell Rex is doing

    It is not even the fact that he is bad that bothers me anymore. It is the fact we pay him 3 mil for what 7-15 plays a game. What is he Tebow? Why not just get a god damn OLB that can do his job.

    Brady saw it in about 10 seconds, why can't Rex?

    And Bell is considered to be and old, slow, in the box safety.


    If Bell is "slow," what does that make Smith?

    Because of Eric Smith, Antonio Allen isnt even on the 53 man roster any more.
    He is on the practice squad.

    Smith blows. We all know it.
    Dwight Lowery had another interception on Sunday...
