troy looked real good on monday rushing for that TD... it was pretty impressive even though it came against second and third stringers

It wouldn't shock me if he panned out. His only drawback is that he's the same height as Drew Brees.

What's wrong with Brees, he is one of the better QB's in the league.

My point exactly.

What is wrong with that (I love short guys, I'm only 5'7 myself) is that the quarterback can't see over his offensive linemen. I hate to say it but it is true. Forget McNabb saying black QBs have to do a little bit extra, short QBs are the ones have to do extra. They can succeed (Flutie, Brees, Romo, Grossman to a certain extent) but it is harder for them because they honestly can't see throwing lanes as well.
I think Smith could be a good quarterback, at least better than anyone else on that roster.

I think Troy Smith cand efiantly play quarterback in this league, I just wish it wasn't for the Ravens.

This may sound crazy, but since they got nothing to loss i would start the kid and see how he plays in one full game!

He won the Heisman Trophy playing at OSU. The OL for the Bucks aren't exactly small guys, and he did just fine. I think too much is made of being too short. If you can play QB, you can play QB.

I want him starting against us in the season finale. maybe he'll give us a good match up unlike Boller

i like ohio state but i like nfl football much better and i thought that troy smith would be a total bust in the nfl, and maybe its too early to tell, but i might be wrong

he'll be like a kordell.. decent thrower and has a threat to run.. then whne ppl figure out his game plan he'll be stuck...

I don't know that Boller is the long term answer in Baltimore. So I'd have to agree with the earlier post to give me a shot. They've got nothing to lose. He gives you mobility if nothing else.

Here's the thing about Troy Smith that separates him from the Kordell Stewart's and Mike Vick's of the World: He can actually read a defense. He has a cannon arm, is very mobile, and understands the game and the position. People have underestimated his ability to play QB since his days at Cleveland Glenville. I think he can succeed if he's brought along at the right pace.
