Yahoo! Sports: Steve Smith Could be Traded

84 posts in this topic

I dunno how much stock I put into it actually happening tho. An inquiry is just testing the waters... it prolly happens a lot with crappy teams around the trade deadline.

Ok, to put an end to this stupid idea and topic, who do you go to the Panthers games to watch play?

Cam Newton and.......... Steve Smith

you don't trade the guy people come to watch most.

it doesn't pass the smell test

Dumb idea, dumb topic

I come to watch the panthers, don't care who the player is.

But I do agree with you, there isn't much to this. Just some writer's opinion and nothing else. That being said, with Hurney getting fired, just about anything could happen regarding personnel.

CBD has been a source of good info before. I tend to take what he says seriously.

just because a team made inquiries does not mean the panthers have any intention to trade him though. and I don't doubt the Bills and other teams have made inquiries about some major Panthers talent because everyone sees it's about to blow up since the GM has been fired.

but that doesn't mean we accept them without question.

as i said in my other post basically all Panthers fans show up to watch either Steve Smith or Cam Newton, and because of that Smith is going nowhere. in a season like this you don't want to give your fans any reason to not come to the game and trading smith will be just that.

Rivera was just on wbt and said if a situation arises that he and Beane have discussed what we would require to pull the trigger. This was not in reference to any specific player.

I thought this was weird because he made it seem as if we would trade a player for the right draft pick. I find it odd that a coach already on the hot seat and not likely to be retained next year would trade a weapon that could potentially save his job for future draft picks that he will likely never get to use himself.

From a friend. No way of knowing if it is true, just funny that someone went out of their way to tell me and now this.

I was kinda against the idea at first but if I put emotion aside, I can see the logic.. Get something while we can and stockpile picks. He ain't gonna be here after a rebuild anyways.

Thanks man! I know you've been around since forever so I wasn't questioning you as in whether it was credible or not, was just wondering.

I think if some players that we don't use or really even need (cough) DeAngelo Williams (cough) wouldn't hurt to get rid of especially if they are being noisy about their displeasure and if by chance you save your job and are able to turn it around, next season you would have an extra draft pick and a hell of a lot more cap space open,.

the poo has officially hit the fan.

If "poo" is another word for speculation, I agree.

    • wait has anyone mentioned yet that we play this team twice a year? see the Buc's on there too?
    • I have tried to watch it twice and just lost interest.  Its boring, badly acted and silly.  I dunno either man.
    • Yep, I'm not a KB fan. Nor will I ever be. The guy is a lazy mofo who doesn't take his shot at the NFL seriously enough. You guys can hang on the occasional acrobatic catch but not me. I'm not satisfied with garbage time performances. Sloppy routes, crucial drops, weak attitude, etc. Meh, I'm good.  No, you are in denial. Sheppard wasn't going half speed at practice. Take it as you will. Please do. I won't be hopping on any KB bandwagon. Like I said, you guys can marvel at meaningless scores and yards but I'll give a damn when Benjamin actually shows up and makes a positive impact on a 3rd down or redzone conversion when the game is on the line. Bite me, asswipe. I don't want to celebrate anything with you.
