Mr. Desperation paid their minds a visit, thus we have Reeves.

Oh please, do you really think that they went after this guy but didn't ask Smith if he wanted him, and then gave him a small suitcase full of money in spite of and over Dick's loud objections?

I know you're milking the "Everyone else is on a Richard Smith witch hunt" angle but it doesn't fit here. If Reeves wasn't signed with input from our DC then we have much bigger problems than just bad coaching or a lack of talented players.

Every defender currently starting aside from TJ, Greenwood, and CC Brown (Dunta when he returns) has been brought in by this regime to play in this defense, including Reeves (aka "The Human Target"). If he sucks like he never left Dallas then how do you address that? Who do you blame or question over that?

Actually...

I am very much aware that he probably, maybe, signed off on the signing...

I just think it's hilarious when a guy is brought in and he works out "Rick Smith is a genious", but when they grab a guy that doesn't work out "Richard Smith needs to do a better job building the roster"....Wha ?

It's a question of expectations. When Rick Smith brings in guys like Earl Cochran and Anthony Maddox, and they contribute in any meaningful way, then that's a great job. Not much was expected from those guys, and there probably wasn't as much of a round table style discussion going on - certainly not to the extent that you have when you commit millions to a free agent. When the no-name guys come in and fail, they quietly get cut and shown the door. Rick Smith can get away with a lot more of those. When Jacques Reeves fails, Rick Smith will catch his share of the blame as well, and he won't get away with very many of those before he pays with his job. However, the main part of his job in that arena is to find guys that fit the Texans' system. He gets that feedback from the coaches, one of whom is Richard Smith.

The question that fans are trying to figure out is, "How much of this is talent, because we know there's a deficiency there, and how much is Smith?"

Every defense in the NFL has its ordinary and subpar guys. D-coordinators have to scheme for those guys and overcome. Do you really think Smith is doing the best possible job with the limited talent he has?

Faggins seems very average to me; capable of big time play once in awhile but for the most part quite average!

It won't matter if they don't get a pass rush though...

What he said.

Petey was doing something last night never before associated with him--laying wood.

Granted. At some point either Rick Smith is a genius or Rick Smith is merely mortal. I'm thinking he looks pretty human from where we're sitting right now with all of his aquisitions.

He may not be perfect, but he's better than what we had.

So to blame Rick on this one is just not true. It was more like my house is full of crap, the cowgirls got how many probowl choke artist and they hate this guy? Let me sign him to a fat contract that after the seconed year I can cut him and he has not earned jack.
Rick obviously didn't watch many Cowgirl games, or hear any Cowgirl fans talking about Reeves. They both suck...Faggins just sucks less.

Vince Young loved him some faggins.

Then he realized we were talking about the Houston Texans CB and retracted his statement.

If Jaque Reeves fails fans will be mostly dissapointed because of the contract he was given...

Every other GM in the leauge takes heat for signing players that don't live up to the contract...

Rick Smith is no different....

Rick Smith has the final say so ultimately it lies on his shoulders when a FA does not perform to a contract...

Not saying Richard Smith is blame free at all...just saying that the emphasis put on his role with the make up of the roster is oft times exaggerated...IMHO...

When Faggins is playing like one of your better corners I'm guessing it says something about the make-up of the roster...

Yep, it's like trying to put lipstick on a pig...

The man is an "acceptable" Nickel / Dime CB - he should NEVER be confused w/ CB1 / CB2 options unless injuries force you to no other alternative.

Petey is a nice guy who has gotten "exposed" by poor schemes and inadequate play around him as well. I expect that fully 1/2 the hatred many express towards him would never have occurred if we had a 1st-Rd. quality FS.
