I bet he doesn't like running games either. Just a 'me' player who wants the ball thrown to his direction on every down. Fortunately Smith is just an employee that just needs to do his job and block down field.

The WR who wants the ball thrown to him in triple coverage??

Question. Why is Steve Smith's opinion on the read option more valuable than a guy like Tent Dilfer's who has been studying this the last 2 years??

Trent Dilfer? Pardon me, I had to laugh at that.

Is it really that much more taxing than a QB snapping the ball taking three steps and handing the ball off.

If the QB is making his reads properly and quickly it shouldn't be longer than handing the ball off from under center. At the very least not so much longer that it is abnormally taxing on an O-linemen.

Has anyone actually done a comprehensive study on the time difference between the two?? Is there something besides opinion on that. Not attacking you, but you said it was a fact so I was wondering if there was something on this to prove it. You may be right. Just asking.

time isnt the only variable, its space and speed also. . and furthermore its vector and not speed, there is a difference.

An offense that puts up 31 points in the SB and averages 35 points in the playoffs is unsuccessful.

Ok, Steve.

To Steve success means him catching 10 passes for 150 yards per game and never make the playoffs, not this making the playoffs and superbowl stuff. It's so ironic it's coming from a guy who plays for a team that hasn't been in the playoffs in almost 10 years.

I hope every reciever on this team thinks this way...the rest is total BS.

Oh yeah, he's obviously been drama queen all his life right, Blue? he never shuts up about me me me. . psssh all those times he lays blocks down field are by accidentally tripping into people near the play.

You have lost all credibility to me.

I'd say the Ravens did a pretty good job of handling it up until 1) Ngata went out and 2) they got tired.

The tactic they used was similar to what defenses have used against option type offenses before, i.e. maintaining gap discipline and having the DEs wait and guard their lanes rather than committing early.

Well, this was only one game plus they didn't really stop it when it mattered most. The second half. 31 points is a lot of points in the NFL. What more can you ask for.

Again, how many points came off of the read option. I would like to know. I watched the game.

Smith is an anomaly. He has a "me" first attitude, but at the same time is one of the hardest working, team-first players on the panthers. He wants the ball, what great reciever doesn't. He just voices his opinion because he is the Senior panther. He has earned his voice.

let me say something to make it clear for you all,

If Smith were a selfish guy, he wouldnt be in Carolina right now. He wouldve been long gone in several scenario's.

like some of guys' hero, Randy Moss. Now there's a bitch for you, too bad so sad, Randy, no ring for you douchebag.
