Default Re: Steelers to hire Redskins Danny Smith as special teams coach

First, Danny is a Pittsburgh guy, thats his hometown, went to school at Edinboro State. In 2011to the Redskins ST Unit ranked #1 in Kick Return yards allowed. 20.8 avg.

However I believe it was in the 2011 season that the redskins had a record 5 blocked FG attempts. Also in the first two games of the season the redskins had two blocked punts.

Overall, Im not thrilled about this hire, Smith is a Pittsburgh native which is likely why he was hired.
