TT set up the gameplan to beat Smith - jam the receivers and run the risk that he beats you deep. So far, he isn't a good deep passer. He struggles when he has to put air under the ball.
The good thing about this season is that Smith has a half a season against good competition to cement being the #1 pick in the draft, or falling like every other QB this year.
That's an awful lot of text for an uninformed opinion based on one game.
