Smitty on Retiring

Recommended Posts

Anyone else find the comments from the announcers during the game troubling? They said when they asked Smitty how much longer he was going to play and he said something like "If you asked me after the game Sunday, I would've told you I just played my last one."

Yet another reason this staff has to go... If we got a legit coaching staff in here, Smitty still has a good two to three years left. I don't want him to walk away empty handed and losing like this is taking its toll on all of our players.

Considering Smith's push off help lead to a missed FG... He needs to be quiet.

Just stop... considering Martin was well over the goal line when he fumbled it didn't really matter, while you're talking out your a$$.

Um, The db was actually holding Smitty on that "push off". Plus what about the roughing the passer call that should have been called on that play? IF we didn't have smith, I highly doubt we would have won any games. He may not show up big in the box score these days, but he makes key blocks and the defense has to look out for him.

i love smitty, but i don't care about not sending him away empty-handed or whatever. not if it means sacrificing anything for the team as a whole.

i'd love to see steve stick around he's the greatest panther of all time. but he no longer has the clout to be dictating things the way he does (or tries to.) he can't back his talk up with elite play anymore.

I kept saying that was a horrible call. The DB basically ran completely into Smitty and never looked for the ball. You aren't supposed to be able to interfere with a receiver's route unless you are making a play on the ball. But, I just chalk it up to one of many horrible calls throughout the day.

Smitty talks too much....

But his PI was smart. He had to get to the ball. PI isn't always bad. Sometimes it is better to take a penalty than risk the TO

Yeah, I don't like all the manipulative stuff, but I'm saying he is still a good WR when given the opportunities. Is he likely to turn a 5 yard comeback route to a 75 yard TD like he used to? Probably not. But, he's still really good. I'm saying if we got a coaching staff in here that could utilize him while he's still at this level, plus LaFell, Gettis (whom Rivera clearly has a beef with), and our RBs, we could win consistently and have a chance at winning it all.

And for all he has done for our team over the years, I would just prefer he go out on a positive note.

Go dig a hole in your backyard and line it with plastic and let your neighbor piss in it and then drown yourself in it!

Seems like a lot of work just to voice an opinion.

It's a dog eat dog league...and Smith is about to be eaten. Fortunately his number 89 will be seen in the stadium a long time in remembrance of his best years. Too bad all great things have to come to an end.
