Re: Steelers to hire Redskins Danny Smith as special teams coach
Not a new fan, been one since I was a young kid. Started with the Steelers in '66, before they had any prospects of being good.
That said, I live in the DC area and follow the Redskins closely too. They are my number 2 team.
Smith is a bad hire. He's not a good coach but somehow the players and other coaches seem to always love the guy. He's a bubble gum chewing mediocre coach who will have an above average year just in time to save his job.
They couldn't get off a field goal down here with any confidence until this year. Punt returns were just as bad. He can't seem to get the returners to run UP the field. They go to the sidelines and fall down.
Overall, a bad hire.
