Smith Not Leaving Any Time Soon

32 posts in this topic

Depending when a CBA is signed probably all league dates will be adjusted accordingly. So past deadlines won't apply.

However, I hope Smitty is here either way.

Smith being traded was entirely the invention of this message board. the concept hardly exists outside of it.

I think in his heart Smith wants to remain a Panther. But I think he wants help. I think he wants to see reliable quarterback play. I think he wants other receivers to step up and take some pressure off him. I think he wants to be used in different and creative ways on offense.

Now it’s up to Chudzinski and his staff to find ways to use him and keep him happy.

I am with Smitty on this one 100%. Make the tight end a weapon, put Smitty in motion and mix things up a bit. We might try 4 receiver sets and an attacking passing style to make throwing the ball something other the recourse of last resort.

Nah.................

You guys act like its absolutely absurd to think it could happen. It most certainly can and does. Not with the panthers so much, they hold onto players for better or worse, sometimes too long. In fact, this articles flaw is the failure to recognize the Panther's ability to let their best players go for little or nothing or everything. Really at this point it should be up to Smitty, he deserves the respect to chose and either way he'll be competing, that is the way I see it.

Smitty will get a ring as a Panther.

It's pretty much saying we won't draft Green, which no one knows for sure.

I think Smitty is here to stay. Just get the feeling he wants to win a ring and be in the hall of fame under one team. But wouldn't blame Smith or management if it doesn't work out that way.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
