Smith is maturing as a QB and had several great throws yesterday and the week before - however there is something I’m wondering why no one is talking about.
Smith has a bad habit of throwing BEHIND his receivers as they are crossing or moving laterally - which he did 5 to 6 times on Saturday.
I understand how everyone is so focused on the TERRIBLE third down spot - but on the last fourth down try, Smith rolled out and threw another pass behind the receiver and never gave Johnson a chance to catch the ball (as he tried to stretch back to catch it)
Johnson ran a quick out and was open for the first down and if Smith makes the throw, no one is talking about that terrible spot. I hope Donovan can clean that up.
I’m just so happy he had improved over the season and he has really been coached up.
He’s learning but I like how he is picking up the offense.
I thought he did a great job of avoiding several bull rushes by that massive UT defense.
Not sure the interception was on him or receiver.
He had a really good game against one of the best defensive teams in the country so I think Smith and the entire team is headed in the right direction
Tune had problems with nervous feet in the pocket until midway through his junior, but when Dana first got here he was super erratic. Now he is making NFL money.
I see a lot of positive progression with Smith with room to grow.
He is being coached up and if he keeps it up we can end up being very good and might just go to the next level.
Nobody would have thought that just a few short weeks ago
Yes Donovan does throw the ball sometimes behind the receiver instead of leading him that can be fixed by coaching and for the most part it has to a great degree. But that habit rears it’s ugly head still sometimes in his game.
