lol....

CRA says, Steve Smith is the GOAT (Panther history). A bad ass WR even at his current age (arguably best in the game in his prime).....but he has issues controlling his emotions which consistantly have displayed themselves throughout career.


Response? people spin that as CRA hates Steve Smith

you guys need to not overreact so much about Steve Smith. He is a douche often in the context of football. <insert Hurney deal with it gif> . Not point bashing those who point it out....too many examples of it.


I realize you recognize Smitty's football skills, but for whatever reason you've always been overly critical of everything else. I dunno if he dissed you at a game, or someone you know or what. What you do is far from "pointing it out" or "not homerishly slurping everything he says/does."

Has Smitty made mistakes? Yes. Was he wrong to punch those guys? Yes. Does he have an ego? Yes. Does he have character flaws? Yes. Is he a diva? No. Here's why: He's never been selfish. When he's complained about not getting the ball, it's not because he just wants to get his. It's because he legitimately believes the best chance the team has to win is getting him the ball. And for the most part, he's always been right. His tantrums haven't been of a selfish nature, it's always been about the team. And that's what separates him from divas, and why his tantrums are tolerable.

I don't think he's the perfect human being with no negative qualities whatsoever, but he's certainly not this hybrid of TO, Mike Tyson and a 13 year old girl getting her first period on crack that you tend to portray him as.

I love Smith as a WR.

I just don't agree with people trying to essentially lie about his flaws as a Panther. He doesn't need to be a great leader. He can be a hot head with his own rules. I got no issue with that. I just find it funny that regardless of what he does.....people will find a way to defend it as justfited, so and so had it coming to him, well it's not THAT big of a deal, etc, etc.



I don't think him punching his teammates was justified, nor do I think it was no big deal. But his flaws are nowhere near the magnitude you claim.

And his comments about teammates (Clausen, Norman, probably some others I'm not remembering at the moment) aren't a big deal. Maybe that's his way of challenging them to be better. Is that necessarily the best way to achieve that? Probably not, but it's probably what would work with him and what he knows. I don't think he says these things with the intention of insulting and belittling these guys for shits and giggles. He expects what he gives, 100%. If he doesn't see that, he challenges them to change. Whether you agree with his method or not, his intention (to me, anyway) has always seemed to be for the best of the team. And that's what's most important. That's why he gets a pass when he does fug up.

I love smitty. But the dude PUNCHED a teammate. Thats a pretty big deal. But at the same time. What makes Smith great is that attitude. He's 5' 9", he feeds off that energy, and imo thats what makes him so great. I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm just glad i wasn't Lucas.

What is this, talk poo about Steve Smith day? Everyone here knows his past.

The day he hangs it up and we finally bother to actually address the WR position, you fugs will miss him.

Norman is what happens when the last CB you drafted when it counts was Richard Marshall. Hurney sucked.

While you're there, Cap, see if they have a WR that doesn't assault his teammates.

Its funny to see people laughing at this when we had to deal with the same play from Munnerlyn for 3 years till he turned it around. Way to have confidence in the guy. Norman will get better.

He has punched out 3 teammates, has made things tougher when thing get tough (2010), to date he still struggles keeping his head in a game and out of pointless scuffles, and runs off to the media when he shouldn't still. Steve has recently said there are plenty of guys in his lockerroom that won't even forgive him for the issues he has created...

I am not too hard on him. Sometimes too man go overboard with creating him into something more. He doesn't need to be falsely made into more....just let him be what he is.

I completely seperate the football player and man away from the game. Only the football player is a concern of mine...
