More Steve Smith bashing

gotta becareful with the fantasy articles and there is a reason why some say fantasy is bad for the sport.

Being a great fantasy option doesn't make guys actual better players than some of there peers. There might be 5 total WRs I would consider better than Smitty now but I could do a pretty big list of "fantasy" guys I would have higher.

The fantasy aspect of this entire ordeal is beside the point. The most important thing to note, in my opinion, is the fact that this idiot, along with many others, thinks Steve Smith of the Giants is a better WR than # 89.

There is a reason Smitty wears #89. It's the highest number a WR can wear.

Therefore, NO wide receiver is greater than 89!

well, the fantasy aspect of things has really messed with people's minds imo.

I honestly don't have a problem with anyone saying NYG Smith is a better fantasy WR. He probably is.

NYG Smith is isn't half the NFL WR that Car Smith is.

The line gets blurred today and being a fantasy stud has a lot of pull in the public's mind.

Agreed. 89, however, will be the better fantasy option this year as well, with a new QB and more focus on the passing game (finally).

NY Smith is still the better option for fantasy - or better said the safer option. A few years ago I considered Smitty the best fantasy WR simply because he was so damn consistent. You could almost guarantee 100 yards and a TD from him every week. But his downturn has nothing to do with the running game and everything to do with Jake. Unless Moore and eventually Clausen flop, I expect him to return to form. But NY Smith is still the safer option.

Yeah, people tend to forget that despite missing two games he was a top 10 fantasy WR or even top 5 WR (depending on format) in 2008.

09 Jake has really messed w/ the perception of things from the outside. They don't look at the 2009 team thinking the talent was here to of won 11-12 games pending a move a QB would have been made earlier. Outside of Carolina they look at us just as a .500 team that looked bad in 09. People don't realize the only thing that hurt Carolina was management of talent last year.

If there is just one game that I hope Gamble makes a WR his bitch, I hope it's week 1 against the Giants' Steve Smith. While #89 has 220+ yards.

It won't even be a contest week 1...at least not between the two Steve Smith's. The game itself, however, might be a good one.
