Let's have a discussion about Vontae Davis and Sean Smith.


By this time last year many Dolphin's fans were picking sides between Vontae Davis and Sean Smith. It reminded me of the thinking of the average woman, because most were siding with Smith because he's tall. Anyway, Smith beat out Vontae last year because he was "on fire" and he made that one handed interception during preseason. None of the teams wanted to take a chance on Smith so they constantly picked on Vontae. However, by the end of the year,  Vontae had much better stats than Smith, with 4 interceptions and 53 tackles vs. 0 interceptions and 38 tackles. Vontae's year was better all around especially with those big plays in Buffalo and in New England against Randy Moss.

My point is this, I think that Vontae took his lumps last year, and that has helped him take the next step, where Sean Smith's progress was stifled because he wasn't challenged as much last season. This is not to say that Smith will not rebound from this funk that he's in, its just something that I saw coming.
