Troy Smith Joins the Baltimore Stallions

14 posts in this topic

Troy Smith, one of the most over-hyped QB's in Ravens history, has joined the other team with Baltimore ties. Today, he signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. The current Montreal franchise took over the Baltimore Stallions after the 1995 season.

I guess Troy "'would crawl from Baltimore to play for Browns" Smith has a farther crawl with passport in hand.

I wish him well, eh.

 

Speaking of Troy -- three Heisman winners have played for the Ravens. Name them...

That's two. Vinny is normally the last one people remember. The third was fairly recent.

I'm sorry. I cheated. I looked it up. That would be Ricky Williams.

As to the thread, I have no reason not wish Troy Smith the best, and the CFL is the best place for him. The guy is a player, but just not built for the NFL QB job.

Over-hyped? He was a 5th round pick. :rolleyes:

Winning the Heisman trophy in the modern NCAA today, is more of publicity stunt and much less to do with talent.

 

I find it interesting to see how college football fans follow the crowning of the annual Heisman trophy winner every year on TV.

 

Major universities usually have a whole host of media people sending press releases through out the season for their anointed player.

Huh? The most over hyped quarterback in Ravens history? No.

 

When the hell was there any hype for troy smith? OP has bad memory...

 

 

 

I would say Elvis Grbac was the most over-hyped. i think that's fair

 

Upon signing, Grbac mocked Dilfer in the press: "It's time that a quarterback comes in here and provides leadership, a go-to guy, a vertical passing game. This is a great team. I can make it better."

Do you all not remember the defensive side of the ball being his biggest cheerleader from 2007-2009? They even talked about how well he did against them in practice.

yeah he had a few fanboys on the team and mike preston but nobody really expected him to do much at the position generally speaking. nobody thought he was the answer. he was an experiment.
