Smith doesn't need to win any SuperBowls. He only needs not to lose one.
Running backs, special teams, big D, and short flare passes are supposed to get the 9'ers in. Time of possession and grinding down the defense.
They're going to need BrandonJacobs and the flea before mid season. Either MarioM bounces back and actually holds onto a ball, or the Giants were right to let him go.
