Talking to Steve Smith

36 posts in this topic

We were at the same Caravan tour that day. He took pics with my son no problem and tried to talk to him but Ty was awestruck and not saying a word, just staring. After Rod Smart horrified my daughter by making her think he ate a bug, she wouldn't take a pic with any of them.

Smitty didn't go out of his way to talk to anyone, but he did his thing about signing and pics. I chalked it up to him having a bad day and maybe not really wanting to be there. Rod Smart was having a blast.

Oh at the Caravan in Ft. Bragg?

That's crazy! Yeah, that was the overall impression I got as well, but it didn't change my opinion of him in general. I just felt like an idiot.

But as I said, I truly think he is much more approachable and personable now. You can tell he has matured, grown, and humbled himself a lot since then, so I'm sure it would be a completely different feel when interacting with him.

Good for you. I have a foot phobia, can't even touch my wife's feet.

I've heard he is a huge dick.... Still it wouldn't stop me shaking his hand or getting a picture with him... Hell I've been a PSL owner for ever, so in a way I've been paying for his salary!

Anyone have any personal experiences? I'll be at his Samaritan's Feet charity in San Diego this Saturday and am afraid he might not be approachable (or too nervous to approach him).

Will he be offended if I ask for a photo with me and my wife? Will he strike up a conversation? Anyone with personal knowledge it will be appreciated.

He's very approachable if he's in a good mood. If he's not...he won't be around to be bothered.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
