My fourth question for Brian of Buffalo Rumblings is about how a former Jet is faring in his new surroundings. I think the Jets have been vindicated in letting Brad Smith go to Buffalo since they are getting arguably better production from Joe McKnight and Jeremy Kerley for cheaper. Smith still could have an impact in this one.

How is old friend Brad Smith faring with his new team? How do the Bills use him?

His time has been split between operating as a Wildcat quarterback and playing some wide receiver. The Bills have had to use C.J. Spiller at receiver full-time in their past two games due to injuries, so Smith has effectively become the team's change-of-pace runner behind Fred Jackson in that time frame. Gailey will dial up the Wildcat on a lot of third-and-short situations, and it's been largely effective. Smith has been invisible as a receiver, but he makes defenses think when he's on the field, regardless of how effective he is.
