    Sean Smith has had an interesting start to training camp so far. Not only has he been roasted by Gates and Bush in the passing game the last two days but he got run over by Reggie Bush in practice this afternoon. Reggie took a toss to the right, cut it up field, lowered his helmet like a ram and trucked Sean sending him flying backwards. Sean landed on his rear end. It was almost like witnessing a car hitting a pedestrian. Bush then proceeded to throw the ball in the air while stepping around Sean as Sean laid on the floor. Sean got punked but I must admit I love Reggie's nastiness on that play. He showed me something I didn't expect. He seems to love contact.

    Sean Smith has never been a head on tackler, wouldn't be surprised if this happened. Still though I expect Sean Smith to have a good season. I'm more excited hearing that Reggie Bush wanted to bring down the boom than anything.. lol.

    I'm hoping our O-Line can open up some big holes for Reggie this year. He's too small to break tackles from D-Line and Linebackers, but if he gets to the next level then he's taking it to the house. It'll be nice having that this year instead of our runningbacks always getting runned down.

    I've never seen Sean Smith hit anyone. He tends to drag people down. He's one of the softest tacklers in the NFL. He's like the opposite of Vontae.

    To be fair, everyone's been getting roasted by Gates.

    Is it me or does Smith have a bit of a Cromartie streak in him?

    With the NFL moving away from the "highlight reel" hits I don't really care if Smith can "hit" or not. All I want to see is him not missing tackles and bringing his guy down everytime. A sure tackler beats a big hitter everytime in my book. Although getting run over by Bush is a little embarrasing it has to be said.

    I would also prefer to see Bush avoid contact when possible, I mean the guy is made of balsa wood.

    Here is some video of the Truck by Bush. It's pretty raw, but you can still make it out.

    He's not good at tackling, but he tries on every single tackle which is what I really like to see. I'd like to say more of an Asante Samuel streak. There was also a marked improvement in his tackling from his first to his second season.

    I wouldn't go that far......Ted Ginn plays like more of a " man " then Cromartie ....and i'm not just saying that, if you watch them in the same game Ginn was winning the hand fights at the LOS all the time when they played each other.

    BTW~ Even Great players get beat from time to time in camp.Long , Wake, JT, and #13 have all looked the part of a fool at some point in camp.

    If you're going to compete you're going to get beat, end of story.

    IMO Sean Smith is the weakest link in our D. I hope Will Allen can push him for the starting spot if he gets back to his pre injury form.

    Too bad Davis is anything but a sure tackler. 45 tackles with 13 missed is nothing to be proud of. I'd rather see someone dragged down instead of a missed big hit.

    I'm starting to think like this...for one of the bigger guys in the secondary he really needs to man up! Geez.

    Was just making that same comparison. If he could just hold onto the ball, he'd be just like Cromartie.

    I'm surprised to see that stat. I've seen him make numerous big time tackles.

    Funny that all 3 of Phila's corners are in the top 10 in worst tacklers

    To me their is a simple reason for it. If you watch how he tackles he tends to go for the killer shot every time and subsequently misses at times, whereas if he goes for the wrap-up i'm sure the number of miss tackles would decrease.

    Eventually Sean Smith is going to realize how big he is. The thing I'd really like to see from is using those long arms to jam guys at the line.

    Good to hear Reggie is fired up. He's gonna give us a nice spark.

    one thing I have learned, SS might not be a practice player but a damn beast on the field game day in coverage so let it be.

    speed= inertia=force

    just because one is not big, does not mean you cannot have power. I would think balance and speed are more lethal. ronnie brown has power but often times he is dancing and off blance taking away his speed and inertia to pound someone.

    walter payton had power because his balance and speed would make the defender off balance and him in line to direct a blow. he also had powerful legs. deceptive.

    I stated last year many times that sean smith was a *****. He still made some big plays but he is in henne dilemna. he has to make more big plays than bad ones. He is not a very good tackler. jimmy wilson may take his job one day.

    Did JT have to give him a hug on the sideline to keep him from crying again?

    This was a huge problem for us in 2010. Both Ronnie and Ricky were taken down pretty easily by the first person they encountered.

    Deion Sanders was a pretty horrible tackler and he just went into the Hall. Yeah I know, he did other things too.

    And no I'm not saying SS is Deion good. But I think he is way better than he gets credit for. That being said he does need to improve his tackling and he has been. Until Bush happened! That was nice!

    I expect this to happen to a lot of corner backs this year
