I'm not saying Smith will suck, but the style of offense he played in combined with the poor competition he faced on a weekly basis definitely throws up a red flag IMO...honestly I dont even think he'd be a 1st rd pick in most drafts, its just that this one is so QB poor that he's being overvalued
Yes, they played against better talent. However, Aikman's offense was consisated of 5 yard outs to WRs and was a timing offense. Manning's offense was 4 and 5 WR sets all the time, he just didnt play shotgun all the time.
