Until I hear stories of Shamarko acting an idiot in practice and in games, we'll hold off on the comparison.

Exactly.

It's like comparing Reggie Bush to OJ, simply because they both went to USC. We all know that they're nothing alike: Reggie is nowhere near as talented... nor homicidal.

Cameron Heyward = Vernon Gholston?

Both were Ohio State defensive linemen drafted in the first round. Way to draft a bust, Colbert, ya moron.

We need to see him play more before we decide anything.

From what I've seen of Shamarko, it seems like he is a hell of a lot more mature than Anthony Smith was. Smith was a self-centered asshole. I remember that time when he got an interception and started showboating down the sidelines, and Dick Lebeau lit into him soon as the play ended.

Anthony Smith looked good all the way up until we played the Patriots. Too bad he got into the dog house after 'guaranteeing a win.'

Thomas is much more of a SS anyway. I don't want to see a 5'9 guy playing FS.

I for one liked Smith! He hit like a truck and played well for us, even was in a heated battled for starting spot with Clark up until that guarantee he made, which was taken out of context.

This is comparing two guys because they play the same position. BS. The guy hasn't played much. Vrts like Clark, Allen and obviously Troy are the reason. Let's see the guy play. Also, he hasn't made any guarantees that I'm aware of!

Thomas from what ive heard is a very mature young man and Smith was just an idiot. Look at there stats in college and Thomas' are much better and even in their first year in the league Thomas played more, even with missing a few games.
