Did we miss him as the FS he was drafted for? No

but I do think the chance was missed to try him out at SS.

If the bone was removed from his head I personally think he may have been the SS that could have pushed Tyrone Carter for playing time.

He's only got one person to blame for passing up that chance

I don't think he is . Green Bay picked him up after we drop him . but I read some place that they let him go week 4 of the yr .
I had high hopes for him , but he was just not right in the head ..

We drafted him for to be Clark's replacement at FS, but he played more like a SS. I think he would have been a bigger upgrade at SS over Carter in the replacement of Polamalu last season. But I am also not sure how much of an upgrade he would have been, seeing how he was such a bonehead. With Smith, we would have still probably had that five game skid that essentially kept us out of the playoffs.

Also, seeing how he's not in the league currently and was released by the Packers during the season, it's obvious we don't miss him because nobody else wants him.

The kid had potential and he got his shot for a back up roll with his excellent roll in the pre-season, but it seems other than a big mouth and hard hits he is nothing more than that. He doesn't seem to have a big target on his back in the NFL because he never really proved himself other than in the preseason against second string players.
I would say we don't miss him and you won't see him in a black and gold uniform again.

He was OK, but I don't know if he was worth the trouble. I seem to remember that he made a lot of big plays, but he also gambled and lost quite often. I don't think that style works too well when you've already got a wild card player at the other safety position, however good Troy may be.

However, I think he would've been a WAY better replacement for Troy this year than Carter was ... Carter's performance seemed the same amount of letdowns we'd have gotten from Smith, with none of the big plays.

Basically, he would've been nice to have in that situation, but I couldn't envision a regular role for him if the starters were healthy, which is why it's not worth the trouble.

We miss what he should have been, not what he was.

How could we possibly miss someone who was cut by the Rams?
