I've heard this excuse to keep Smith a lot. I am not buying that anymore. I think we have talent enough on defense to be able to do whatever his real philosophy is. We had to have a coach feel that his job was already foregone before he started dialing up more pressure. I think that there is enough stud-level talent and that there are plenty of players who can fill in adequately enough to make this defense a whole lot more of a handful for opposing offenses. Anybody with me and think that the "No Talent" excuse is NOT a valid defense for Smith's terrible units for the first 9 weeks of the season?
