Stay healthy, my friend.

Good Lord, Arian Smith:

I know he’s not a polished route runner by any means, but so what?  He’s a deep threat every time he sets foot on the field.  Instead of ‘Bama fans giving us the what ifs about Jameson Williams’ injury, they ought to consider Smith’s absence.

    Your last sentence sentence is how I feel. I am sure Adrian Smith is as frustrated as I am that it seems that in every game he gets a long reception or score he gets injured. Bad look for the guy.

    Needs to be able to block, too. But the larger narrative about our WR corps, good grief, yes. Pickens, Smith, and one who’s not even on the list at all, Blaylock. Those are damn good players.

    Here’s hoping his joint structure grows into his body.

    I say blocking be damned, split him out and make the db keep up.

    Well, first post was about greed killing football, the second was about Art Briles and Grambling. At least this one gives us a little bit to hopeful about.

    Wonder if this chart helps explain why Burton transferred.

    I realize Washington had an injured foot earlier in the season, but that stat proves what I felt. Big O wasn’t being targeted enough for my liking. Of course there are only so many targets per game and everything DID work out according to our evil plan. I simply would have liked to see that Big Dawg punish a few more DB’s that tried to tackle him at speed. Free up some space for Arian Smith and give give that whiny bitch Saban more to snivel about. The fuckn loser.

      Our WR group was a mess at the start of the season, and I don’t think Monken ever got the passing offense installed. It seemed to be he coached the guys he had that week and put in a game plan for their skill set.
      Worked great for Bowers but not for Washington.

    I think Smith caught that 4th down TD pass against Missouri. One of my favorite plays of the year. Dude is a nightmare in man.

    Siskey said, “I say blocking be damned” referring to Arian. So I’m thinking about that as I’m in my sunroom prepping a mandevilla to move back outside come spring. Unlike most of my robust plants the mandevilla requires a certain amount of pampering. Special care if you will. Spindly, young vines that must be handled with care whilst intertwining them in the metal tower that if treated properly will produce beautiful Georgia Red flowers. Treated like the rest of the plants I’ll still get some blooms, but never the flowing fountain of red running up and down the trellis.
    Maybe to reach his full potential Arian needs to concentrate more on running routes and less on the physical side of the normal, blocking, Georgia receiver. Free him from the ground and pound grind that seems to be wearing on him. Save Smith for when the DB’s have been abused by Big O and Bowers and allow him to streak past the bloody, limping invalids or third string for a long TD.
    Sure, this goes against Kirby’s philosophy and could lead to some resentment among his teammates. It works for prima donna QB’s and I never noticed my other plants seeming to mind.
    Break over.

    Always nice to be reminded that he’s still on the team. If he ever can stay healthy he will be a force, but I’ve honestly started to give up hope that he will.
