What we have here is a failure to communicate. Smitty doesn't seem in tune to what's going on with TD. I actually feel sorry for him. He looks as if he didn't have much input in the players being selected and is being asked to play along as if he did. Not cool.


Dimitroff has too much control and doesn't know what the hell he's doing. Another disappointing draft. Whatever Falcons.


No, coach Smith looks miserable.  He looked the same after day two.  It's almost like he doesn't like these picks and thinks he'll lose his job because of it….

And what is TD's infatuation with drafting people from the north?

Kadeem Edwards, OG, Tennessee St - Tampa Bay
Joe Thomas, LB, SC State - Green Bay
Carlos Fields Jr., LB, Winston Salem St. - Oakland
Isaiah Crowell, RB, Alabama State - Cleveland 
A.C. Leonard, TE, Tennessee State - Minnesota


Does it seem to you that MS is not happy. 



well there seems to be something going on.  Both of them seem as though they are tolerating each other, where in the past they seemed as though they were on the same page and working together. blah, blah blah.

One thing is for sure TD will be judged for these picks and MS will be judged on how tough they are at the end of training camp.  This year TC will have to be more than a sleep over with pillow fights as the evidence showed that this team was soft and not ready at the beginning of the season.
