    It was a lot of people who missed him.
    Smoot was playing the right side, AW the left.
    Smoot was on the other side of the field.


    You sure about this?
    I'm almost certain it was Smoot.

    It was Smoot. 100% positive.

    Re: FRED SMOOT VIDEO!!! SHOCKING!!!

    Smoot plays the deep ball every play. Notice in that video the only play he had was the one were the WR actually ran down the field. All a WR has to do is run a curl route and its automatic 10+ yards. I guess it's just part of the whole bend dont break.

    The only thing I dont like is the huge cushion Smoot will give the WR 90% of the time. I dont mind him playing the deep ball, but come on, get on your man. Atleast that way he has a better chance to stop the WR after a catch, but still be able to stop the deep ball. Ironically, in that one good play he has, he is closer to the WR than he usually is before the snap.

    FYI, its up the CB if he wants to play up on the WR or give the WR a cushion.

    nice video....good job...

    one thing though, I'm not sure you can fault Smoot for playing off (the cushion), I think that has to do with the scheme and play calling on defense.
    In any event, he had a bad game and needs to play better.

    thanks again for making the vid.
    I believe the cushion is mainly up to the CB.
    On three of those plays (the first 2 and the last you can clearly see Smoot dropping to play the deep zone and Henderson coming over (late perhaps?) to cover the short flats where the receiver running curls and hooks caught the ball.
    I can't fault Smoot for that because it was probably a cover 3 call or something.
    As a corner playing deep zone you have to drop back as quickly as possible, especially if the receiver is running right up the field right at you.
    It's not man to man coverage, he's not giving him a cushion, he's dropping to his zone.
    The rest of the video is brutal though.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Smoot should put on 20 lbs and play free safety, not for the Vikings of course.


    Chuch.

    Re: FRED SMOOT VIDEO!!! SHOCKING!!!

    Ok, well then what should we do, who do you expect to play for Smoot? Griffin? Whitaker? Yeah that's smart, start two rookies at starting right corner and nickel back, you know last time I looked when Griffin came in he made some bad penalties, dumb ones and not to mention he has been burned a few times as well.

    Whitaker? No thanks he's a career Dime back and he gave up the winning TD to a undrafted WR from last year, just tell me who should we put at number two CB? I noticed in that video that Smoot was NOT the only corner playing off, Winfield and our Nickel back were as well, that's Cover 3 ladies and gents but, since there is so much hatred towards Smoot, it was focused squarely on him because everyone LOVES to hate him.

    I'm no Smoot lover or supporter at all in fact I wouldn't mind if we traded him in the offseason, the fact of the matter is he's all we got for right now and he's going to play at any cost because he's all we got and like it or not he's our best coverage CB, wait that's right he is a true coverage CB, he isn't a pure tackler but he can tackle, maybe not great but he can tackle.

    Smoot may have cost us 1 TD or maybe not, he atleast slowed price down, the D made very bad pursuit to help. You know when players play good they get praised all around, but when they played bad you all are all over them and think they should be benched or traded, that isn't exactly what I would call loyalty, if Smoot has 2 INT's and 1 returned for a TD next game, all this trash would stop and there would be a thread praising him.

    Looking at that game, i'm not worried about just one player, i'm more worried about our whole offense. I know why our defense sucked, they were on the field way to much and were probably dead tired, we're gol 'darnit lucky all we gave up was 17.

    I second the motion. I agree Smoot is overrated. but we are stuck with him.

    Not 100%.
    I did not even really look at the particular play when I made this vid..
