You can compare anyone with anyone but that doesn't make it a good comparison. I agree Alexander and Smith aren't in the same ballpark...they're barely playing the same sport IMO.


I'm going to need you to reference Jules Winfield when using that phrase...

I think what it boils down to is who kevin Smith has around him and who he plays. If Detroit is actually decent, which i dont think they will be, and the o-line plays goos hell be okay. But hell have 6 tough matvhups against his division. And if youre worried about competition, not in the same position or year, but you shouldve also been worried about Brandon Marshall or Daunte Culpepper then. They both succeeded because of the people around them and it will have a big say in Smiths success

Did anyone actually watch the Det game last night? Was he as bad as his stats were? Of course all the rookie RBs had bad stat lines last night except possibly Hightower, so take it with a grain of salt.

I do know that Smith outplayed Tatum, and thats one sign you want if your a Smith owner...Tatum ran with the starters too, I know he will have to play better to be the starter by week 1, but I didn't see Smith play.

Didn't see it, but...

Running back Kevin Smith, a third-round pick, had 22 yards on eight carries (a 2.8-yard average) but showed some quickness and acceleration getting through the gaps.

Overall, Lions coach Rod Marinelli was pleased with the effort of his rookies, but there's a lot of room for improvement. I thought Kevin really showed some stuff. He's -- boom -- he hits it up there quick.

Mark me down as a loser, but I did watch some of the game. Tatum Bell looked slower than last year, if that is possible. Positives about Smith are that he hit the hole quicker than Slug Bell, he seemed to try to make moves while doing it, and he seemed to fall forward more times than not.
Negatives are that he didn't seem to have a sense of the speed-not unepected. The O-line wasn't opening up any holes. The run play calling was unimaginative. I think that most of his yardage came on a 3rd and forever draw play. Don't think they ever threw to him. May not be incorperating RBs into the pass game, but still way too early to tell. Smith also didn't break any tackles or make anyone miss. Again not much in the way of holes so...

I saw the replay and he ran well, just no holes to run through. He did pick up that 3 and 2 in the 2nd quarter that showed he has what it takes to be the short yardage back. He also picked up the blitz well. He only had about 12-15 snaps, most of which were running "up the gut." He was open on his wheel route by about 15 yards, but Orlovsky chose to hit the underneath WR. Would have been nice to get a look at him in space. I'm interested to see what he does with the first team in the next few games.
