Smitty was such a freak

75 posts in this topic

Steve Smith was the best WR in 2005. That's only one freaking year. Besides that he was never anywhere near the best WR in the league.

 

he said he was balling out, no where in that post you quoted did he say he was the best in the league.

 

also, check out 2008. read the article he posted in his OP.

 

and while you're at it, look at the receivers who were considered the very best in the league at one point in time. that list is very short.

Smith was the best in the league 05-08. You can argue the numbers if you want but his eye test and ability as a player was not matched.

After some number crunching, the only WR who had a 48 game stretch remotely similar during 2005-2008 was Larry Fitzgerald who put up...

 

295/4332/35 on 1620 attempts (2.66 YPA compared to Smitty's 3.20 YPA). He also had Kurt Warner (for the most part... there's quite a bit of Matt Leinart in there...) and Anquan Boldin drawing coverage.

Oh boy, now the huddle doesn't give a fug about former players? Does that mean we can stop shitting on Peppers?
