Wow- Major props to Smitty

47 posts in this topic

Steve is not going to relocate his family, they like Charlotte. He will retire before being traded.

Yup. He said it himself. He's not going anywhere.

Listen to your self. Denial is the key word that pops to mind when I read this.

Denial when Steve smith said himself he would retire in Carolina?

Do you want our greatest player ever to be traded for chump change after all he's done for us?

Go get that tat removed.

...so denial is the word to defend when supporting your reaching assumptions.

...facts and first person accounts is whats used to support Smitty staying..this is not hard to understand.

After this season when Randy Moss and Tony G. retire. Steve Smith will be second in the league for receiving yards...only behind Reggie Wayne.

Quite a feat with subpar QB's IMO.

Him and Wayne came the same year- I am truly convinced that if our boy Smitty would have 15k by now if he had a Manning or Brady.

He's my favorite player, I don't think he will anymore, but I want him to get a ring even if with another team (not NFCs).

The sad part is, #'s 8, 9, 19 and 20 will be the reasons that Smitty will not make the HOF without at least 1 ring.

How many times have we heard a player from every sport say that he wants to retire in a certain destination. Approximate 8/10 players that say that end up playing somewhere else. I'm sorry if I don't want to sit idly by while this "receiving group" we have deteriorates any further. I like to be real with myself and my feelings. This in no way shows that I have no support for the club. In fact it shows the opposite.

Show me one recent example of a player that said thy were in their last couple years so if they were to be traded they would just retire, and then didn't stick by that word.

Smith decided a while ago that him and his family are committed to living in Charlotte, they found a high school for their kid, they aren't going anywhere.

Once again, remove you tattoo if you think smith is going anywhere.

I wasn't talking about our team. It happens in all sports players make statements that mean fug all. Plus using the same comeback twice shows your inferiority.

So you can't name one player? That's what I thought.

Smith isn't going anywhere and any real panther fan would know that.

Nice new username, now go get rid of your tattoo.

Smith still has a lot left, especially if the Panthers can every get a new #1 and be able to move Smith to the slot. He could easily turn into the Ricky Proehl role and play many more years. The question is if this Panther can get competitive again and he wants to stay around.

The Smitty man love blinds a lot of fans.....

Bottom line is Smitty says a lot but people put too much stock in "franchise" loyalty. It doesn't exist to the degree is pitched often.

Smitty wants to keep his family in Charlotte. So did Moose and so do tons of players who leave their families in cities and go play elsewhere....

If Smitty wants to play as long as his body would allow.....odds of him finishing as a Panther are simply slim. That is just reality. If he retires a Panther, he retires when he still could play IMO

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
