Coverage wise no not concerned

Run defense wise...definitely, Smith played the run really well in preseason.

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

At least it makes all the Smith talk go away now. Never want to see it, but better now than first game of the season. They will have a little time to work on fixing the position.
Good luck Will.

I would bet there is at least 1 decent talent the 49ers are trying to stash on their PS.

LOL, no. Trust me he will not be missed in the slightest. This is not 2009, or even 2010, 11 or 12. The man CANNOT play linebacker AT ALL and we're much better off giving that roster spot to a younger, faster guy who can actually play the position competently instead of watching Will Smith halfheartedly dragging his fat ass around the field and pretending he's still worthwhile because he went to one Pro Bowl forever ago.

Trusting you has nothing to do with it... If that option were available do you think Smith would have been on the field to get hurt in the first place?

You are assuming Payton was playing Smith because.... ?

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

The questions remains: where does he do his rehab? In West Philadelphia where he was born and raised or does he move in with his auntie and uncle in Bel Air.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

He is a veteran and Martez/Junior have not been around.

I honestly don't think he would've made the final roster unless cutting him was cost-prohibitive (which is very possible). Jay freaking Richardson has outplayed him by a mile and he's been out of the league for the last 2 years.

Have you read any of my posts? Will smith costs us 7.8M in dead money if he is cut, we have 4M left in salary cap... Do the math... That is why I said he was not a talent loss but a warm body loss. Then you went on to laugh and explain how he lacks talent..

Ya think?

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

I don't like he got hurt and thank him for the good years. I do think we keep certain players to long and after he slowed down we should have traded him or let him go. He could have helped containing the edge as OLB and ended up with a few sacks but beyond that nothing more.
