Smith impressed by fellow receivers


Yesterday before practice, I spent a few minutes with Jamayel Smith talking about the receivers. I quickly noticed he was more interested in talking about his teammates rather than himself.

Not that he was trying to be humble. It’s just that he’s been impressed with how they’ve been playing so far during practice.

In today’s Daily Journal, the focus is on the receiving corps, Part III of the eight day look at all the positions.

So far, we’ve looked at:
Running backs on Sunday.
Linebackers on Monday.

As for the rest of the week, the schedule reads:
Defensive backs on Wednesday
Offensive line on Thursday
Defensive line on Friday
Special teams on Saturday
Quarterbacks on Sunday

    i hope robinson gets a lot of plays if he is as explosive as the coaches have made him sound….but i know this is mr. negativity coming out but im not completely sold on the passing game, QBs and WRs just yet….i just want to see how much they have improved where it turns over into the game….i dont think they are bad wide outs but i think they are all more of possession receivers which makes it harder to become more explosive in the passing game…..but hey i could be wrong, hope i am….oh and for the record, ive never really been a fan of the 2 QB system….maybe if you have a real runner and a pocket passer but i think lee and carroll are too much alike to change them in and out…messes with their confidence it would seem, oh well we’ll see…GO DAWGS!!

    You might as well get used to those OC questions. That story just got a little more interesting.

  6. bigdraws Says:

    GG, did I hear you right? You called Robinson a “freak of nature”?

  7. Gregg Ellis Says:

    That term was in reference to his speed.

    I understand the OC questions, but I don’t see the need in reporting his medical condition when the family asked it be kept quiet. Others might. I won’t.

  8. bigdraws Says:

    Yeah, he made it a point to ask you twice about that.

    You have to respect the family’s request for privacy though as usual it is pretty well known by now to many. It doesn’t sound like a one week deal to me though, at least not over the longer term. I wish him the best.

    Hey GG, no longer at the Elementary school in Memphis. Now I’m doing my student teaching in Memphis. Right now, Im goofing off, fixing to give them a lecture. I just wanted to let yall know that my response rate might be limited. 🙂

    Anyway, the WR Im looking for this year is McCrea. Think he is going to be special, along with the Robinson kid.

  11. imabulldog Says:

    Besides McCrea changed his # to 6! 🙂

  12. imabulldog Says:

    Yall remember Odell Bradley, #6, every time they threw to his receiver it was 6 baby!

    We had so many jokes about that guy when I worked with the team.

  13. dawgbones Says:

    Where do you see Robinson fitting in this year and how much playing time do you think he will get?

  14. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Right now, he’s the fifth wideout. I say how much playing time he gets will greatly depend on how Co-Eric Riley and Brandon McRae perform.
