ShulaSteakhouse Posted December 12, 2005 Report Share Posted December 12, 2005 I don't mean to cut into all the feel-good scenarios here - but am tired of this particular player to the point that I feel I have to say something for all the Justin Smith fan boys out there. I noticed how poor Smith was yesterday and the week before - he did have a tipped pass and somehow got credit for half a sack - but other than that he had 1 tackle all day long and was wiped out by Cleveland's RT.Don't let the "hustle" factor fool you - jumping on tackles 5+ yards downfield isn't really a DE's job. He never makes a big play - rarely if that, and never beats his man with a move or speed and gets a tackle for loss - some of it is scheme, but most of it is lack of ability.Has only one or two good games a year seemingly.Don't give me this "well he provides constant pressure and re-routes Qb's" - he does none of that.I think Geathers is a better DE than he is at this point.I thought he was a FA at the end of this season but am thinking it's after 2006.I would hope Marvin eyes a replacement for him in the offseason in the draft or elsewhere - and that somebody is competing for his job.I really am tired of the poor defense here, and I think he is a major culprit in containing QB's - sacks - pressure - and stopping the run. He is not good at anything in particular, and has always been a tweener.It's time for the Justin Smith era to end after this season - that said i sure as hell hope he steps it up and proves me wrong the rest of this year, even if it's just for a game or two.But outside of that, I would be happy to see the beer guzzler and his Anheiser Bush tattoo head to another city asap.He's just not that good and has never come close to living up to his draft status.I am truly tired of watching him do squat every week.
