    jimmy smith's place in baltimore's history



    3rd and Lombardi: Crabtree beats Graham and pulls in the catch at the 3 and turns for the EZ only to have Smith knock the ball loose with an exceptional hit.

    4th and Lombardi: the niners get Crabtree (#1 wr) in a one on one matchup with Smith (#3 cb). Its the matchup they wanted but Smith does what he was drafted by the Ravens to do, plays physical man to man coverage, jamming Crabtree up, and not allowing him to get a release and make a play on the EZ fade.

    BALLGAME!

    The goal line stand will go down in history, and the hero of it, IMO, was Jimmy Smith.

    If he can stay healthy, you know what you can have on your hands.

    We were all calling him the second coming of McAllister when we drafted him, not saying that yet, but he sure showed up clutch and physical.

    I tried telling people, the dude is legit. Last year he played huge against the Patriots. His ceiling is high.

    If he does bust, it'll be interesting to see how Ravens fan view him. Would his ending to the Super Bowl outweigh his otherwise failed career? I'm leaning toward yes.

    I agree, he has a high ceiling and I would like to see if our DC will use him more in press coverage; he seems to thrive in that style of defense.

    I will say yes. Winning a Superbowl is worth it.

    Hopefully he stays healthy because it is probably his health issues that have held back his development.

    His play helps with being recognized as someone not to throw against. Or with a touchy feely referee he could be a DPI kind of guy. Refs let a lot of holding and pushing and shoving go without throwing a flag. Made it a good game, hope other refs take notice. I guess since the big teams didn't make it to the SB, the NFL said let them play.Wasn't a chance the NFL could have the refs decide the outcome of this SB.

    The guy has amazing talent. He is top 10 pick talent wise, but he just can't stay healthy. He didnt have that problem in college. He needs to play consistently and get reps if he is going to reach his potential. Next year will be big for him. Next year Graham and Webb are your likely starters with him and Chykie Brown in nickel and dime packages.

    Does anybody remember that one game captured by SoundFX where Jimmy was begging to play press because the refs weren't calling anything?

    Gotta love foreshadowing.

    Question: Crabtree was in the grasp of a DB (Williams?) when Smith knocked his helmet off. Since Smith led with his helmet, why no helmet-to-helmet flag on Smith?
