Evan Smith Back To 2011 Form

Evan Smith was thrust into guard today and talked to Joe about it.

Joe has fired plenty of daggers at former starting center Evan (Dietrich) Smith, many for his ridiculous attitude toward Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, this spring.

But Smith deserves plenty of love today.

Smith was thrown off the bench and into the Bucs-Giants game to play right guard when Ali Marpet went down with a foot/ankle injury in the first half.

Smith did a hell of a job.

Joe talked to Smith after the game and he revealed he hadn’t played right guard since he was with the Packers in 2011. Smith also said he didn’t practice there with the Bucs.

“I thought I did well, especially for a first time this season,” Smith said. “You have to know your offense and know your role, and your potential role, and just step in and do what you got to do. Once I got going and getting more of a rhythm, I felt a lot better.”

The Bucs might just have the deepest offensive line in the NFL, something completely unthinkable just two months ago.

    I’m glad that Evan Smith stepped up to the plate, but I sure do hope that Ali Marpet heals up quickly. Nice though to have Smith, Pamphile and Dotson in reserve if needed.

    Yeah he did fill in nicely today! What’s the word on Marpet?

    This is how it works though when you draft well, you begin to build depth!

    Easy big fella. The Cowboys still have the best and deepest line in the league. Not to mention the Pats and the 15 different players theyve used this season. But its a plus for sure.

    One of the few bright spots on a team full of other issues. There is nothing better than to have players who are multi-functional. We have two legit starting Centers along with starting caliber players at Guard and Tackle. I say continue to pay Evan Smith, Logan Mankins and Demar Dotson into next year. It will give Lovie and Licht the ability to focus on the defense and an additional WR in the draft and FA.
