Smitty was such a freak

It's not like I'm actively following them. I'll check the scoreboard and be like "Sweet, Ravens won."

So you would check the scoreboard and be happy the Ravens won without knowing any of Smitty's stats for the game? Yeah...not me.

Not rooting for Bmore, but I will be keeping an eye on how Smitty is doing. 

 

I don't think some realize how much of an anomaly he was. There is no way he should have been able to do what he did at his size in this sport. No way. And his best years were during a time when DBs could actually hit WRs after the catch, and bump them off the line. 

 

We may never see another like him - ever. Glitch in the Matrix.

uh huh. the point i made in the OP was more about him putting up big numbers in the super bowl. he doesn't need more regular season stats. he's pretty much a lock for top 15 in catches and yards by the time he retires.

I would love for him to make the HOF. It would be great to tailgate in Canton. But if the expense is having to root for a team other than the Panthers, it's not worth it.

If Smitty went to a NFC team would you be rooting for him to get to the Super Bowl? If he went to the Cowboys would you be rooting for him?

If the Ravens win the Superbowl Steve Smith won't be MVP. He's not even their #1 reciever. It's not 2005 anymore, he's on his way out of the leauge. He'll be a role player at best in Baltimore.

I hope Smitty blows up this year but I don't care if the Ravens win a single game.

imo, smith is just like any other player on any other team. i won't be wishing succes or failure for him....unless it's against us in which case he is the enemy and i wish no good for him. only pain, frustration, and a loss.

 

i am a panthers fan. not a player fan. and i am only a panthers fan. if he retires as a panther then i'm welcoming him back. until that day comes, he's just another guy on another team. no different from any other former panther player.

 

what he did here was great and he was my all time favorite panther, but he's now history. right now and going forward is what matters and i'm looking forward to seeing what this new era brings.

you're a very high strung person. i said i wouldn't root for the ravens to beat the panthers. calm down buddy. and you're kidding yourself if it comes down to ravens vs nfc team that isnt the panthers, you wouldn't be going for the ravens to see smitty win a ring.

No...I'm actually not high strung at all. I just don't agree with your statement. In fact, no one who has posted after you has agreed with it. Do you have names to call them, too? I just call them real Panthers fans.

i dont care much for zod or rayzor or the guys with <5 posts so i mainly have the same thing to say to them as i do to you.

 

do you think colts fans just said "oh peyton manning is just a guy on another team now" and didn't want denver to win the big game after they were eliminated? that would seem an odd thing to think because of how much peyton meant to the colts for the past decade, being one of the best players of all-time and face of the franchise, much like smitty was for carolina. if anything, the indifference makes me question whether or not you're a real fan.
