When you call Smith a "bust signing" after a half season, that's an exaggeration even if the guy had played 0 games or had zero receptions. It's not something to declare until we're much further into this, unless the player is a disaster personally like AB. Smith will have some big games eventually, that seems obvious to me.Don't lump me into this group. I think he has been a bust of a pick thus far based on what he was paid and his production, but I am holding out hope for him to turn it around. I don't hate the guy and I am rooting for him to succeed. But pointing out that, based on money spent and expected production from the guy, he has not remotely lived up to either thus far is a valid criticism of the guy.
And I also think overall the Pats have had a successful free agent class. I am the guy who has been saying that they need to give Bourne more things to do because he seems to always over perform when he gets the ball.
I am not offended by Smith at all.
