Well, according to Tice, "Certainly tonight Smith separated himself". Read the whole article. All signs point to Smith being the man in Minnesota.Huh?Smith was 12/33 with no receiving yards and 1 TD and a really bad blitz pickup. Chapman was 4/16 with 10 yards receiving. Does OSmith deserve a look with the first-team offense? Probably. Does Tice feel comfortable with him in there as the same time as CPep? I don't know.Hey. Smith had a couple of nice runs. He's definitely more of a big-play guy than Chapman or Williams. I don't think Tice will put up with his inconsistencies/weaknesses on a regular basis though. You're deluding yourself if you think that Tice isn't going to call out Smith on that "block".Personally, I think the Vikes open up the season with Chapman/M. Williams. If the team struggles, they'll work in Smith more.
