I think this is a good development. He knows that LJ’s skills mean that when LJ is healthy and in the coach’s good graces, he (Kolby) will sit on the bench. But he had some good games last year, and is now demonstrating the type of drive that often leads to successful careers. If the O-line improves, or if our “spread” offense with Thigpen at the helm pulls defenders out of the box, Kolby Smith could have some more good games, and help us win some games this year.
Of course, he struggled against the Jets, and it is more likely he will struggle, and remain a good backup. We’ll see. I like his attitude and personality, and will be pulling for him to develop into a solid starter at RB.
