Brad Smith – Growing pains for Mark Dan Leberfeld

Brad Smith, a former college quarterback at Missouri, can feel Mark Sanchez’s pain.

Sanchez is in a sophomore slump.

“At the quarterback position, it’s always a mental thing, dealing with knowing who’s coming with pressure, your reads, your footwork and all those types of things,” Smith said. “That’s something that’s pretty constant.  He’s going through some growing pains and that’s just how it is.  We have his back, just like he has our back.”
