Yasinskas Speculation: "Real Chance" Smith is Traded

Unless you get a 1st for Smith, which will never happen, then it's a stupid move.

If Smith is on the trading block, then we really may be considering one of these lame rookie QBs for the #1 pick.....what a disaster.

well, to keep Smitty you can't use Clausen, Pike, or a drafted rookie as the QB in 2011.

if they land a Palmer or someone like that.....then Rivera can keep Smitty.

I bet Carolina has no clue what they are going to do yet as the options have been put on hold and when they can start making moves you never know what could become avaliable.

If Rivera believes Smith wil lbe traded, there actually may be something to possibly drafting Green #1.

I wouldnt take a WR #1. Move down a few spots, pick up at least a 2nd this year then take him.

I got used to losing my favorite players after Pep left last season. I no longer hold any allegience to the players and only care about the good of the team. If you are a cancer you must be removed.

If he wants out, trade him...dont need the drama. If he wants to stay and work keep him. /story

True, but I think Rivera will have Smith more under control than Fox did. Smith was Fox's boy but I dont think Rivera will take that s**t if Smith stays.

yeah, but Smitty needs a coach that will let him basically be Steve....otherwise you just have a timebomb. Steve has always been a timebomb though that has gone off every few years.

I'd agree, though I'd much rather see Smith replaced with a veteran pickup than a rookie.

Awesome. Trade away one of the only competent offensive players we have, who is on contract for a few more years, for a 4th round pick at best.

Sounds like a swell idea.

doubtful any team is gonna give up a 2nd to move up 3 or 4 spots with us....the top of this class just ain't strong. They would basically be a team trading up into where you don't want to be from where you want to be.

there is a risk also of trading down. trade down for player X and he might not be there.

Rivera doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who'll hang on to a player who doesn't want to be here just to "prove his manhood". He seems like more of a "you're not part of the program, so get lost" type.

We don't really know what his impression of Smith is, but if it's a bad one I don't think he'd hesitate.

Agree, I don't think Rivera has any interest in bad apples... I think he would trade Smith and move on if he thought Smith was going to be trouble.

I agree 100% and I feel he has looked at tape and not seen a guy give 100% in awhile. I would presume Smith flat told him he wants out and have a chance to play for an immediate contender and for what he has given us he should have that shot. Thing is in a year or so tops, depending on what moves are made, we will be back in contention.

I bet he is gone within a couple weeks of free agency whenever that happens.

I'm good either way. He'll always be considered one of the best players in the franchise's history.

If we get a vet to start, I can see him staying.

If we don't have a vet starter though, I don't want him around young qbs. I think he is toxic to young qbs. I know he wants to win, I think he deserves to win. I think on another team, with the right make-up of veteran players, he could go back to having a good time on the field and dominating.
