Steve Wysche on Smitty

24 posts in this topic

it boils down to 2 things

1) his attitude...if it sucks we don't want him around regardless of how much he has in the tank.

2) what he has left in the tank.

i don't care where he retires. i just don't want to be stuck with him like we are with kasay presently and like we were with jake and other fox favorites just because we like keeping people around here forever, even when the overall team suffers by having subpar players on board. and, yes...i'm calling kasay subpar because we have to waste a roster spot because he can only do half of his job. only reason he is still around is because he's been here forever. not a good enough reason, imo.

if his attitude is good and he can play as well as he did in his 20s...fine. once he starts slowing down and getting hurt a lot then we need to be moving him while he still has some value. love him or not...he is just a commodity. you have to decide what's more important, making the team better or staying loyal to players that you love. if we can make the team better by trading smith away then we need to do it while we can still get something for him.

A smartass question deserves a smartass response I suppose.

I think he was just analyzing that.

I like the NFL article way better than Steve Reed's.

But Reed's, IMO, holds a lot more water.

Unfortunately I think Reed is closer to the truth about Smitty. But given the uncertainty of this year and everything else, he isn't going to demand a trade and either have to eat crow if they don't move him or if no one will give enough to make it worth our while play for less than the 15 million he is scheduled to make. He is going to play it close to the vest and once the season starts he will quietly get traded to another team while we bring in someone else to replace him.

I will hate to see him go, but I was a Panther's fan before him and will be one after him as well.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
