I gave him an "A" because he's executed nearly everything that's been asked of him. Most of the drops he's experienced were not his fault, they were the fault of the receivers. Plays that didn't pickup a third down were mostly due to poor playcalling, not Smith.
IMO, he's done everything Andy Reid has asked him to do. I think they've both grown together in the first four games and Reid asked him to do more today than in the three previous games, maybe combined. It wasn't his fault that guys were dropping perfectly placed balls right and left.
