  1. I have a hard time putting any faith in Steve Smith this year. Newton and the running game have been inconsistent, allowing defenses to key in on and frustrate Smith. I wouldn’t categorize last week’s performance as a breakout game when half of Smith’s yardage came on a last second Hail Mary. I guess I’m just venting here but can anyone give me reason to trust Smith again??? I have a tough matchup in 1st round of playoffs this week and need to play the right guys.
