I imagine thats a short list. One should be happy to be on it. Means you're good at what you do.


If i was a CB i'd be honored to be on a HoF recievers hit list.

On a related note, we've had the "is Smitty HoF bound?" discussion numerous times here. I was watching something yesterday, I forget what (I'm sure it was a video on NFL.com or ESPN.com or something, I'll look for it and update the post) where someone not related to the Panthers was talking about Cam having a future HoF receiver helped his rookie season. Thought it was interesting that someone not connected to the Panthers made that statement as if it were a foregone conclusion.

2500 more yards and 20 more TD's and he is in like Flynn.

Ring of Honor he got 3 years ago.

As a follow up on Jawny's post, my feed for the Texans game was out of Houston. Their announcers referred to Smitty as a future hall of famer.

Or it means you talked when you should have listened. And boy you better make sure you bob when you should bob and weave when you should weave. Ken Lucas bobbed when he should have weaved.

His TD numbers really hurt him. He's #32 all-time already in career receiving yardage, but he's tied for 71st in receiving TDs. Fitz is 4 years younger and has 14 more TDs despite having 600 fewer receiving yards.

Sounds right. I was rewatching the game with GamePass and the GP version of the game was Texans commentary, whereas when I watched it live I watched the NFL Network broadcast using GP with Panthers commentary.

Thanks.

Great to hear about Norman...gotta have agressive guys. It is much harder to coach a guy to play more agressive than it is to calm him down..simple fact is he is making plays in practice..catching the ball is importan as Gamble is notorious for simple drops.

This might be a phrase in some mgmt book I have not read but I thought it was good " You cannot teach smart and you cant coach lazy"

11 pages and no one making any awkward nicknames for Norman yet?!


He is? Didn't know that
