Hard to argue w/ that. Smith's best work was when his job was on the line & he was forced to acquire some real talent in FA, Manning & Joesph, to save it as opposed to the poor talent he was accustomed to aquiring such Jacque Reeves. He then followed it up w/ a good defensive draft that he & Kubiak gave Wade credit for w/ his preparation & assistance in selecting players. Smith has not been impressive to me either & this offseason hasnt helped his case thus far. It's still early, but I've got my doubts.
