Coach Tony Sparano said he had no problem with his players showing that kind of confidence, and there really is nothing wrong with it.
Some might take exception because neither Davis nor Smith has ever made the Pro Bowl and neither has the reputation of a Revis or Nnamdi Asomugha.
But those two guys undeniably have talent. And if you look around the league, you will see that Davis isn't that far off — and he might even be right on the money.
Check out the projected starting tandems for every team in the league and come up with your own conclusions.

OK, now, think Davis is crazy again?
Let's look at the top tandems. And the emphasis is on the word "tandem" because we're not ready yet to put Davis or Smith in the same category as Revis or Asomugha or the underrated Flowers or the emerging Joe Haden.
But Cromartie, opposite Revis, is an overrated cornerback who makes big plays but also gets his share of penalties and gives up big plays.
At first glance, the duo that jumps out is Asomugha and Asante Samuel in Philly and in terms of coverage it's hard to beat them.
Samuel, though, doesn't tackle and is a major gambler. Still, the Eagles tandem very well might sit at No. 1.
From this end, though, that distinction should go to the Green Bay tandem of Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson.
Williams has emerged as a star in coverage, and there's no bigger playmaker at cornerback than Woodson, even if he's getting up there in age.
So the bottom line is Davis probably overdid it by putting himself and Smith at No. 1. But those two have the ability to get there at some point.
