I can’t think of a player who has force-fed me more crow than Sean Smith.

Last year, Smith periodically whiffed on jams and/or stumbled during the releases of quicker wideouts. And considering he totes average straight-line speed, said errors proved costly.

Furthermore, this offseason’s arrest didn’t help his public profile, which snowballed into him taking reps with second-stringers.

Heading into Week 10, he ranks as PFF’s No. 13 cornerback (of 199).

The higher-ups have patched up the back end of the secondary, and Smith’s technique looks as polished as ever. Even crazier, he has yet to be flagged for a penalty.

Elon Musk is the founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX. He’s currently conceptualizing the “Hyperloop,” a tube-based transportation system that would commute travelers at an average speed of roughly 700 mph.

If he spent one season analyzing football, he would end up coloring giraffes in a padded cell.
