    Anthony Smith needs to start

    This kid is way to good not to be starting. He plays the run well and hits like Ronnie Lott. He also seems to have good instincts covering receivers and plays the ball well. I couldn't get enough of the hits I saw him delivering! Put him in Coach because he can only get better with more playing time!

    He definitely looked great at times, but he also made some mistakes. He needs to develope a better playing relationship with Troy.

    It's hard to say who a new coach will like most at some positions.

    Hell yes Smith needs to start at FS and he needs to play on special teams to block kicks. He blocked six kicks in his college career. I expect Smith to start next year and just continue to get better. The combo of Smith and Polamalu at safety has the potential to be one of the top safety units in the NFL.

    As new as he was, I was totally impressed with how he played--I look forward to seein more out of him during the '07 season! I'd like to see him start--he can only get better the longer he plays.

    The hits he was delivering in the Bengal game at the end of this past season should be enough to convince anybody. This kid brings the heat every play, I love the thought of him and Troy starting together and us not having to worry about our safeties for a LONG time.

    Ryan Clark though did pick up our defense fast in his first year and although the defense as a whole didn't play well the first half of the season when he was in there mostly, he did make alot of good plays for us so Anthony is going to have to work extra hard this camp to get that job because Ryan Clark won't just give it to him. This should be one of the most competitive camps we've ever seen come this summer.

    Smith hits harder than Clarke

    Clarke is probably the better cover guy right now only because of his experience level but the nod definitely goes to AS for his bonecrushing hits! They need to play him so he can refine those cover skills. Mean while his hard hitting is bound to create turnovers for our defense!

    Most definitely, Smith is a beast hitter and at safety that's exactly what you want. If he can work with Troy alot in camp and the offseason he's going to improve very quickly. He'll have some growing pains we'll have to live through but the end result could be something very special. If AS doesn't start in Sept I'd bet he'll be starting before the half way point of 2007.
