Newton on playing for Carolina

"I wanted to have someone great to throw to".

Don't feel like pulling the tweet from my phone.

Cam cracks me the fug up!!! Nice Lil shot in there to Steve! Btw, I wouldn't read too much into them having a lot of fun at this youthcamp. They both love being around kids, and to them that's more than likely all it's about. Now the camaraderie that they're building... That's where you'll get your money's worth. Can you imagine hearing our horrible Fox announcers saying "and there's another touchdown from Cam Newton to Steve Smith"

Unfortunately we are still far far far away from a resolution with this lockout... And even farther from the season than we were yesterday!

I considered retirement this year as well. Unfortunately, that whole not getting paid thing had an impact on my decision. :)

You mean "There's another touchdown from Cam Newton to Stephen Smith. This team would be a real force if they still had Julian Peters around."?

I could actually overlook how horrible Dick Stockton is if I heard him say "Touchdown pass from Cameron Newton to Stephen Smith!" "That Jonathan Beason is the leader of this defense." Chode.

Or Torry Holt could talk about how when Peyton Hillis was a little boy...

I swear that they intentionally give U's the worst commentators in all of sports. Usually me and my boy just mute their sorry asses and call the games ourselves... It's usually pretty fun once we get drunk!

[QUOTE] “I want to be competitive and have fun,” Smith said. “Winning isn’t everything but losing isn’t much fun. I feel like I didn’t play well statistically, so a lot of people are saying I’m a mid-age receiver whose skills are diminishing and losing a step. We’ll see. We’ll see how many 24-year-old can cover a 32-year-old 4.3-running receiver who wasn’t supposed to be (in the league) anyway.”[/QUOTE]

I know for sure that the huddle has many people in the ,"Steve Smith has lost a step", "Trade him" camp.

I'd love 89 to make everyone who's said that look like a jack-ass this coming season.

The man says he can still run a 4.3 40. Wherever he ends up, i'll be watching, and rooting for him.

I was getting more and more convinced Smitty was going to stay until I read this quote from today..

"@mikecranston1: 89 "When we decide what we're going to do, whether people like it or not, as long as my family is happy, I would hope they would understand"

Who knows what 89 will do. I like the bond that he and Cam are developing, though.

^^ yeah that quote is discouraging, but optimistically I look at the statement that he "briefly considered retirement" as an explanation for so many things. Maybe he cleaned out his locker and suite at the end of the season because he was thinking of calling it quits then. The Reed article says she got sick early in the year, and they didn't find out until last week that she didn't have Lupus. And maybe that's why Rivera said that he left their talk wondering sometimes what Steve really wanted to do, play football or retire.

IDK, maybe I want him to stay too much, maybe I'm too high. Either way it sounds good to me

I wonder what Rosario Dawson has to say about all this.
