If Steve Smith was in Pepp's situation right now...

55 posts in this topic

Smith is the 3rd best receiver in the league. Johnson is the best (I think), and Fitz is second. I don't get why so many people want to call Calvin Johnson one of the best in the league already. He sure has the tools, and could definitely get there...I just haven't seen him prove it yet.

I agree with the thread though. Smith would be a hotter commodity than Pepp.

We would have had some picks for Smith just because of his consistence. He is always above 1000 yards even when we are a run first team. Pep on the other hand is a hot and cold player and IDK who defends him he takes plays off and thats why. The dude just dose not have the drive of greatness like Smith and others.

Smitty's great. Definitely top 5. But there is no doubt Fitzgerald is the best WR in the game today...

Definitely the flavor of the day, but does that actually make him #1, just because he burned us in a playoff game? Not positive on that one, the line is very small...

He didn't just burn us, did you watch the other playoff games?

You cannot tell me that Steve Smith wouldn't be absolutely crushing people even more so than Fitz if he had Kurt Warner throwing him the ball instead of Jake Delhomme.

We would have our choice of ten teams multiple first rounders by now.

It really illustrates what the rest of the league thinks of Julius Peppers. He and his agent have gotten an education these last months. Jared had no trouble finding a suitor in the Vikings, even with his off the field issues. Pep, by all indications is a "model citizen". Must be his play on the field.......:rolleyes:

I wouldn't automatically assume we'd be swimming in 1st rounders. Boldin is a hell of a receiver as well (not as good as 89 but still) and he didn't garner much interest. Maybe that had to do with the huge contract he's looking for, but it's not like Smith would come cheap either. Not to mention he's 29 years old as has 2 incidents (one very recent) of fighting with teammates. As it stands now, I think Smitty is the 2nd best receiver behind Fitz but there's still issues that make it less than certain a team would fork over a huge amount of draft picks.
