I have an Onterio Smith Update for everyone.
Most Vikings fans know that Coach Mike Tice has a weekly radio show on The Vikings Radio Network (http://www.kfan.com
) at 6pm on Wednesdays. Last night (10/1) Tice praised O.Smith and made the following statement..."We expect Onterio to gain over 100 yards this week against Atlanta!"
...Paul Allen (the radio voice of the MN Vikings, and popular MN radio talk show host) was as surprised by that comment as I'm sure most of the listeners were. During this 1 hour show, Paul Allen questioned Coach Tice about 3 more times about that statement. Each time Coach Tice was questioned, he stood by his comment and even repeated himself... "I predict that Onterio will get his first 100 yard game this weekend in Atlanta".
Tice also talked about how beat-up Moe Williams was getting because of all the big hits he takes.
I still think that M.Bennett will get the starting job back if/when
he gets healthy, but until then, I thinkt hat O.Smith will begin to get a lot more involved in the offense. But Moe Williams will most likely continue to get the goaline carries if he stays healthy.
If Onterio Smith is available in your league, and if you have room on your roster, I would suggest picking him up. He may become good trade bate. i don't think he'll be super consistant, but he should have a couple good games.
Coach Tice's show can be heard on the internet at http://www.kfan.com
every Wednesday from 6-7pm Central time.
