Did Pittsburgh die when they were telling Hines it was time to retire? Did New England crater trading away Seymour? As a fan base, we need to grow the heck up and understand what it takes to build a dynasty.


not even remotely close to the same situation. Hines had been the clear 2/3/4th receiver for a number of years before his retirement, not to mention they were primarily a running team.

Neither is true in carolina, steve is the clear #1 receiver, and there is a massive dropoff after him. Oh and we can't run the ball to save our lives.

Didn't you hear Ron's presser? He said they have no plans to trade anyone... it is what it is


Smith is above his pay grade.....just like Williams. Rivera will deflect those to the higher ups bc the buck only stops at Rivera with scrubs.

When has Smith every given Veteran leadership? Sure his play is awesome but I dont see that as leadership.

I'm speaking more to the emotional attachment to players versus performance right now. Get what you can.

Some quotes:
Me, this morning at 9:41 here on the Huddle
Wonder if JR had a little "clarifying" phone call with RR after his Alexander Haig moment.

Darin Gantt, today at 6:11 PM on Pro Football Talk
Head coach Ron Rivera had his Al Haig moment last week, saying the buck stopped with him on personnel moves..

Think Darin's been visiting the Huddle today?

Call me when we have receivers like Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown. In both of these situations, those players were expendable because they already had someone to fill that void.

Steve Smith has been the best player on this team for the last decade. His value to this team is worth a heck of a lt more than what wed get in a trade. Do you really want Brandon LaFell as Cam's #1 option. Do you realize how terrible our offense would be. Having Smith for the next couple years allows us to not have to draft a WR with a top 5 pick...which right now is something we can't afford to do considering our holes on the OL and in the secondary.
