He's a RB extraordinaire...........a thoroughbred. Points on the board.

Quit expecting him to be a PLOW HORSE. O-lines are paid to block. Use 'em !!

The OL blocked who they were supposed to block on the play I linked above.

Stuff like this can't happen.

That's more on Jake. You can't expect a 210lb rb to stop a 260lb lber coming at him full speed, if Jake didn't get beat Matt could've dodged the lb.

QBs are supposed to be able to step up into the pocket. Jake did his job & drove his man past the play.

Antone started with the Lions in 2009 was cut and signed by the Falcons in late Oct 09 to the PS

So he's an RB in the NFL starting his 6 season and he can't pass block??????????

And you want him as the #1 RB ???

A DC that sees him in the game is going to scream "RUN" to his defense

no dude thats all on Smith, it was clearly his Job to pick up that LB , he Failed, Bigtime Failed

thats why he has not got much reg season Time.... and if he cant improve in his Pass Blocking, he wont get much time in 2014 either, obliviously he makes the team because he is 1 of the best ST Guys in the NFL, he wants more time at HB he has to get better picking up the Blitz....

It's on Smith. But Blalock is the guy that let him through the line in the first place, what are you blaming Jake for?

They may scream run when they see him in the game, but the first time Ryan throws a screen over the DLines head to him and he takes it to the house, that will squash the idea that if he is in its a run

Obviously pass blocking is a must

A Smith has good running skills plus speed.

I tend to think that Cosch Smith's reason for not using him could be to avoid injury

With A Smith and Roby, we have two excellent gunners

If I had to choose one or the other, I'd keep Smith on ST over RB

That said, running him in for certain packages on occasion could be a way to utilize his carrying abilities

Yup, this could end up a POSITIVE if schemed properly.

And Ryan has the smarts to do it.
