Regardless of whether A Smith was injured today on a kickoff this teams politics of not playing the best players has got to stop

Especially in a "lost season" That gave us the perfect opportunity to evaluate A Smith At RB if he gets 20+ touches a game

I don't know about you but especially in a lost season I would certainly rather see A Smith for kickoff returns and #2 RB rather than Jizz Rodgers to evaluate what Smith can do

I'm pretty sure he got hurt on the kickoff after the INT return. That dropped TD was the last chance he was ever going to get anyway.

Hmmm
Should we count how many dropped TD's
Our wide 1st string receivers have had over the last 4 years
And let's not forget S Jax's TD drop in the Saints game that basically
was the beginning of the end of this season

You can't just stop playing the guy because of 1 play

Im not disagreeing with you. I think he has done enough to deserve more touches. But as long as Smitty is our coach there won't be many backups getting chances to play unless injuries happen. Once you nail down a starting spot on this team you are golden.

Ridiculous in a lost season not to evaluate a player like that further since he has shown repetitive extremely positive flashes

This antone situation is indeed BS.

With that being said, how did Schraeder look today? And I hope toilolo gets more time now that TG has reached a milestone.

The thing about that though is Antone Smith isn't going anywhere. He's going to be here next season regardless. I truly believe that they're evaluating Steven Jackson right now to see if they want him to come back next year.

I could see them doing that, but to give him no touches at all is ridiculous. I think he should take Quizz touches and Antonio Smith could take his spot next year but we will never know

The question isn't whether A. Smith has explosive speed, that much we know. The question
is can he do all things required to keep him on the field. Like can he recognize the blitz and pass protect?

Many good runners stay on the sideline because they can't pass protect. If they can't then they become
situational guys.

I wonder, how ever could we get some of these questions answered. Ahh, yes. Thus the point of this thread. Why not SEE what Antone is capable of. One of the top reasons I hate mike smith so much is because he doesn't give opportunities to guys who earn it. The only way guys get on the field is through injury. It has gotten really ridiculous. We see a guy like Decould marched out as the starter week after week even though he is clearly not the best option. This is a huge part of not being able to develop players. They can never develop if they never get game experience. It took an injury to decould to get Motta on the field. He coaches so scared of everything. He is so scared to pull a veteran and insert a rookie. He is too conservative for my liking. He just isn't the type of coach that is a game changer.
