Default Anthony Smith Poll

Well fam,... we all have our reasons for why we think Smith should or shouldn't be named the starter. But,...let's take a vote.
I'll start with a simple and absolute YES,.... he should be named the starter. (My reasoning already stated in other thread's)

Vote's Please ?

I definately think Smith should be starting opposite Polamalu....I think down the road, we'll have the best safety duo in the league.

Why not? Clark has been caught out of position many times this preseason leading to huge pass plays. The latest being a combined effort by Colclough and Clark allowing a 61 yard TD by the Eagles. Tyrone Carter has played better but is always looking to get up on the line, that's Troy's job and next thing you know he too is out of position. Smith has shown good awareness, physicality, and ball hawking skills.

Put the kid in there, we can't get any better.

Farrior also calls the play so really it's not that big a deal. He just has to relay the message and make sure everyone gets it.

P.S. With a defense like ours we don't need anymore QB's.

Pittsburghs defense is so complicated that offensive coordinators pull their hair out trying to figure out how to plan against it. It is going to take Smith a little time to completely understand every little nuance of what he needs to do..much less taking into consideration that he needs to understand the other positions to correctly compensate for other players movements... (namely Troy).
I agree that he appears to be a rare talent...but throwing him into a starting posiition right now would leave some of our other players hanging out to dry. I hope they bring him along to completely learn the position and hopefully he's a quick study, ..so we can see that talent and aggression VERY soon in a starting spot .

Absolutely not....its preseason..lebeau has no packages in yet...this kid needs time...

He's made a great showing so far..he has a great future.....

Remember Troys rookie year?...he was lost....

Too much on the line this year to take that risk...cant do it...
