  • Saw this post on Malcolm Smith and thought I would pass it along Smith Coming on Strong


    “He’s got great speed and good instincts, too. He always seems to be around the ball,” one daily team observer said of Smith, also a key special-teamer whose awareness was highlighted when he recovered a muffed punt in the endzone for a TD in Seattle’s recent 58-0 rout of the Cardinals. “He’s faster than Leroy, more athletic. What you lose in experience and Hill’s ability to defend the run you gain with Smith’s speed and aggressiveness, which really fits the team's defensive st

  • I think Smith's emergence may spell the end of the Hill era in Seattle.

    Sad, but true. Not as a knock on Smith by any means, I'm really high on this kid. But I've always liked Leroy. I guess "bittersweet" is the word I'm looking for.

    Just time to get younger and more athletic.

    I'm happy. Hill has been decent this year and last overall, but has been very suspect his entire career in coverage. I'd rather have a young buc in Smith whose more athletic and give him these next 3 games to show he belongs.

    I hope he starts against Buffalo. Can you imagine if when the playoffs come around we have 2 - 2nd year players and a rookie starting @ Lber. That would be pretty neat assuming Smith continues to play well.

  • Smith has been great. I hope he keeps starting the rest of the year, and maybe even next year he can compete with a high draft pick rookie LB for a starting spot too.

  • He needs to stay healthy. That's the big issue with him. He has a bad injury history. If he stays healthy he has a chance to be great

  • Got to the article to vote for the Seahawks as the best NFC team. We have about 1/2 the votes of :49ersmall:
    ..[T]his team is on the verge of...tearing the rest of the NFCW a new one. By the time we get to Arizona, Clark should no longer be the mild mannered version of himself, but instead ripping off body parts and waving then wildly in the air while screaming unintelligibly and spitting fire. Ivotuk

  • Doesn't necessarily spell the end of Hill. He'd make a hell of a backup.
