OK..since no one will talk about the Pink Elephant

What in the word was Brian Billick thinking? Seriously!

Why did Troy Smith play last night? He was asked at halftime and said that Troy Smith would only play if there is an injury to Boller…then with 2 mins left out comes Troy…but why?

Not that I as a fan didn’t want to see Troy Smth play…I did, but why open yourself up to all the questions this week…why give anyone hope that we may see Troy for anything more then mop up? I don’t get it.

Over the past 2 weeks we saw exactly what you get from Boller…always have, always will. He will look great now and terrible later…make a horrible throw and then make a throw few QB’s can make…and that is why he is a backup QB and nothing more…EVER!

You can’t win in this league with him on a consistent basis.

As for Troy Smith…you can’t really learn anything from a 2 minute drill against 2nd and 3rd string players..except this….he looked like a QB!

How nervous must he have been? His first NFL game..his first pass was a strike…would have liked Figurs to at least give a better effort towards the ball…he looked calm in the pocket…I liked how he stepped up away from the rush and never seemed to lose control.

All that said…it was against 2nd and 3rd stringers…I would still like to see him start a game this year…he proved in college he can play…he was a 5th round pick because of his size…and that was the only reason!
