[i]Johnny has seen enough! This game made Johnny barf up his cannelonis!!!! Troy Smith is not a pro quarterback.
Smith cannot read a defense. Cannot find the open receiver. Cannot get rid of the ball quickly. Has no accuracy, no touch and bad timing. He throws bullets for short passes that receivers can't catch. He has no pocket presence and hangs on to the ball way too long. He scrambles like a headless chicken to try and make something happen, but runs backwards and loses
yards. All he has is a cannon for an arm. He actually made Ted White look good tonight!/i]
Sure, there are many problems with the Als offense besides Smith. Higgins and Dinwiddie for sure! And why the puck are they playing Ocho Klinko Johnson and Stala?!
But, Smith has shown what he is; a college star who played in a system that made him look good. He was exposed against the Florida Gators SEC defense in the championship game in 2006. He is showing that lack of ability in the pros every snap! Smith is not the future, he is not the present. Give Marsh the job. See what he has. If he shows progress, take the time to develop him. If he fails to progress like Smith, go to the next guy.
Don't waste any more time with Smith. Cut him before the 10th game so his salary isn't guaranteed. Give the job to Marsh and let him develop.
CUT TROY SMITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
