    Re: Pro Football Focus Player Grades: Louisiana Tech vs Southern

    I said I would withhold final judgment on Smith until after the LSU game. I'm not impressed at this point, but we'll see how he does against an NFL...er, I mean, SEC defense. He looked horrible against Moo State last year, but then, so did the whole team.

    This is his time. No more excuses. No more, oh, Holtz has dumbed-down the playbook for Smith. No more BS! Time to step up and be a true Div I QB, one at Louisiana Tech where we KNOW what a good QB looks like.

    No, I won't base my assessment on Tech winning this game. Even though I know we can if everyone brings their A+ game. I want to see Smith taking charge of our offense. Yes, LSU is stacked with great athletes on defense. NFL talent top to bottom. And yes, I expect to see LSU's defense making great plays, because they have the talent to do so. But I also expect to see Smith making good decisions, and it being obvious who is in charge out there when we have the ball.

    This will be his 17th career start. He is not some wet-behind-the-ears rookie.

    We win with an A grade offensive performance, no turnovers, and a defense similar to what we took to SC for the first 3 quarters.

    You can go head and write him off then dawger. He ain't gonna look impressive. They are gonna be bigger, stronger, faster. Our options will be limited. They will bring the pressure, guys will be covered, J'Mar is going to look hesitant out there.

    Now, if he can limit turnovers and we can get 24 on the board somehow, we might have a chance. 24 will probably involve creating turnovers.

    Don't agree.

    I remember Matt Dunigan vs Baylor, with Mike Singletary, and other NFLers, and Matt overcame all the disadvantages and played a hell of a game. We lost 28-21. But, Matt had about 350 yds and 2 TDs, even though he was literally running for his life every play. They were pouring thru our OL like a sieve. Matt stepped up, took charge, and inspired the whole team to play the best they could.

    That's what I want to see, what I expect to see. I've already said LSU is stacked with NFL talent on defense. There will be plays where Smith will throw the ball the only way it could be thrown, right place, right pace, and sometimes an LSU defender will make a play. Whether it's leaping like Michael Jordan and tipping a pass away, or diving in front a Tech receiver and batting it down. It's gonna happen.

    Smith needs to take charge. Be in charge. I still think the rest of the offense don't follow him, don't look to him for leadership. He has got to change that. Be encouraging, fuss a little if a player misses an assignment (just a little), INSPIRE!!! It's those intangibles that separate real QBs....from throwers.

    He has trouble with the slide. I thought he had injured himself again after that awkward slide.
