Smitty on Retiring

49 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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$$.

What does Smith's OPI have to do with Martin's fumble?

They were bad calls on both plays... which also makes them both inconsequential.

Smitty is still Smitty, and for the most part that's a good thing.

Smitty and mediocre in the same sentence is akin to an oxymoron.

Smitty's best days may be behind him, but his best is still better than most.

I believe that it is a bit unfair and practically impossible to proclaim Smitty's demise when looking at who has been throwing to him the last few years. How can you gauge, with any credibility, how much he has left in the tank when a wide open 89 is being missed several times a game? Huh? You can't.

A lot of bad and no calls in this game as usual.

Steve Smith has a couple good years left while Jordan Gross does not. They can't run the ball consistanly they can't pass block.
