Steve Smith Vs Jerry Rice

Recommended Posts

Steve Smith has 634 catches for 9218 yards, and 54 TDs.

Cris Carter has 1101 catches for 13899 yards and 130 tds.

I will give you another example of a good player who won't get into the Hall but is/was better than Steve Smith... Jimmy Smith.

From 96-05 when he retired, only Marvin Harrison had more catches or yards than him. When he retired he had more catches than any wr in the hall.

862 catches, 12287 yards, 67 tds. Only fumbled 12 times, losing 4 in his career. Steve is sitting at 29 fumbles losing 11. Neither guy will be enshrined.

Keenan McCardell has similar numbers, along with many other players. You have to do more as a WR in the NFL to get in. It is unfortunate, but it is true. And Jimmy Smith has a ring as a Cowboy.

#89 leading the lead in receiving yards. Feels good to see his mug back on the top of the nfl.com standings. Looks like another 1,000 yard season is on the horizon if he can stay healthy. Smitty will bounce back from his mistakes this past game. We lost as a team.

Its been 11 years now and the guy is still producing big for us. #89 has the chance to surpass Moose this season for the most receptions and receiving yards all time in team history.

I would say he needs 3 or 4 more very good years as well.

This. With Cam, at least he has a fighting chance. QB play the last couple of years really hurt him.

The only WR I can think of who pretty much got in the HOF due to rings is Lynn Swann. He was a great WR, but if you look at the pure numbers, he shouldn't be an HOFer. He wasn't even the best WR on those Steelers teams. Hell, you could make the argument that Stallworth got in on rings too I guess.

Smitty has already nearly doubled Swann's career receiving yardage. He's surpassed John Stallwart's too.

If Smith breaks 2000 yds he will be a lock for the HOF.

Smitty will break 2000 yards, if and only if, Cam breaks 5000 yards.:sifone:

but yeah steve is absolutely beasting this year.. even against good D's. If he doesn't get injured he is probably going to have a career year if we keep up with all this passing..I'd still rather us be more balanced with running and passing; I like wins better than stats.
