Quick discussion post for y'all this evening. The question is this: is Smitty too covert?
Right or wrong, Smitty isn't saying who won some key position battles.
"Come to the game on Sunday and see," Smith said on the situations before being asked a question during his post-practice press conference Monday. "We are not going to discuss it simply because I don’t want to give a competitive advantage to our opponent."
At least we know why he's doing it. And let's be honest, coach-speak isn't novel in this league. He has a point, why give away that competitive advantage? If it helps, then by all means. I'm not sure it will help going forward, but for purposes of this week's game, he can have at it, as far as I'm concerned. The only real disadvantage I can imagine is team morale. Some players could - at least in theory - take offense. They'd like that recognition. But, let's be honest, that's not the culture in Atlanta.
