Onterrio Smith

7 posts in this topic

He is eligible for re-instatement in October. he was a heck of a running back with great hands out of the backfield but had problems with drugs and has claimed to clean his act up. He is currently signed with a CFL team but wants back in the NFL. I bet when he comes back for whoever signs him he'll be a hell of a back.

I never really liked him. I can't remember him ever being tackled he would just run into the back of an offensive lineman and go down that way. Smith would never wait for holes to open up, he just ran blindly and hoped for a hole to be in front of him but if it wasn't there he would just run into the blocker and fall over.

Any other team can have him, I don't want him. Last I heard he was really over weight as well, I wonder if he lost any of it yet?

Are you for real?? I think you're thinking of Bennett. He was the guy that would run into the lineman and fall over. Smith had some moves on him at least. You're right he'd never fit the Childres, good guy's only....

I'll tell you what, if he hasn't cleaned up his act he won't be back in the league with the hammer that the new commish has put down this year.

I think he was an ok back at best. Nothing like what you are going to see this year with Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson...I can't wait!!

you're right I love our backfield now but I always wondered what happened to that (Contact Us Please). Hope he does well somewhere.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
