It sounds like they will start Smoot out as the dime or nickle back until he is back to 100%. Which says to me that he has to prove himself because B-will is playing so well, and the younger players are looking good.

Good my boy smoot is back! Its great having good quality depth at the CB postion...cuz as of late Brian Williams has really shown me how good he is.

I was always wondering who the hell #49 was running all over the place making plays on specail team, i thought he was a TE. Farwell's a beast on specail teams.

It will be nice to have smoot back but dont mess with sucess B Will is playing exelent, he has earned the strarting job.

Are we going to pick up a punter for next game? I was holding my breath everytime Eddinger took over last week. He did a great job, but I was concerned about him catching the snaps.

yes another punter would be a good idea, just to not hurt our game winning kicker. even if the guy sucks, it would help.

Just hope MM is back soon ... as it is only a matter of time before Bennett puts the ball on the ground again and poss. cost us a game we can't afford to give away if we want any shot at the playoffs.
