I remember so well when he showboated after making a big play...... LeBeau was about as fired up as I'd seen him in years, and the kid blew him off on the sideline. I never looked at him favorably after that.

i think he will make it somewhere in the nfl if not with the steelers.. he showed too much potential in his first 2 years for him not to have a future..

unfortunately for him clark is all-around better and compliments troy much better than smith would.. you can't have two roaming free spirits at safety, thats why hope and clark played so well along troy.. they held their ground, played smart, and let troy roam the field.

The kid is a player. Maybe this experience helps him grow up as a man and learn his craft.

He peeks in the backfield too much as a FS and unfortunately is behind Troy as a SS. I'd rather see him moved to SS and backup Troy or get in on dime.....then see Mundy be the backup FS.

At this point, for this game, I am more comfortable with Carter as the back-up. Sure, he is not that athletic, but he knows what is expeted of him and where to be.

As much as I would love to keep Smith on the team, I just have a feeling that with Tomlin here he won't get that chance. No question he has talent, but he has a ways to go with getting the mental part down playing FS in the NFL.

Come on guys. Watch the interview. Ed Bullshit drug that prediction out of him and Smith never had a chance. If he had said NO I am not saying we win, we would have been all over him. He was ASKED by Bullshit is that a guarentee? What would you have said about your team? And remember what set up the setup was Smith said, If IF IF we do what we need to do I believe we win the game, Bullshit then drug the guarentee out of him. SO shoot ed bullshit, now Smith.

The bottom line is he's just not as good as Clark and Carter. I am suprised to see him inactive though becuase he's made some nice plays on special teams. Apparently he's the odd man out on the special teams unit
