I have read and re-read posts, comments and snide remarks here on MHR talking about Which UDFA or waiver wire guy everyone thinks will be this years "Rod Smith" or the like. First off I think that is VERY unfair to Mr. Rod Smith in that Mr. Smith worked his tail off for years proving he was worthy of a roster spot. I think to say this every year makes the Amazing-ness of Rod Smith become diminished. Rod was a once in a life time player and a once in a generation situation.
Eron Riley is not Rod Smith, Matt Willis is not Rod Smith anyone else who was undrafted and signs with the broncos is not Rod Smith. ROD SMITH IS ROD SMITH. I realize guys look good in training camp and against other 3rd stringers fighting for jobs, but if a guy is passed over 200 times there is probably a good reason for that.
I am not saying any of these players is horrible just asking for a bit more caution when comparing players who are bubble players and have been for 2-3 years to legends and greats.
Thank You and
