Steve Smith and HOF

33 posts in this topic

2 more years of 1100 receiving yard seasons and Smith will be top 10 in yards... Another 3-4 years, he would likely be in top 10 receptions. If he gets a ring, he will be in Canton. But if not, yall think he still has a shot?

Many will say no just because they don't like his demeanor and past. But anyone that knows the Panthers will say hell yes because he had Mr. Bojangles throwing him the ball for a decade and Coach 3 and Out calling the plays. I hope the committee takes that into consideration.

The way the HOF is treating receivers lately, I don't think Smitty ever gets in. Which doesn't matter to me because he's the best player this franchise has ever had, and the hall is kind of a joke anyway.

He needs to surpass Chris Carter (13,899 yds) in yards and get a ring.

3 years of 1200 yards gets him over 15,000

There's some that consider TO a first ballot HOFer...for some reason. Not sure demeanor plays a big role but it might be different with the WRs.

I think SS is a HOFer but possibly not first ballot. He needs to finish these last couple of years strong to guarantee enshrinement. A Super Bowl victory will certainly help...

Smitty deserves the HOF more than half the WRs already in it.

Smith suffers b/c half his career was in the passing era....

By the time he is up for HOF consideration......his numbers won't standout that much.

I have always thought Smith's best chance was to add 2 more deep playoff runs with great stats and win a ring. With his great foundation, he could really put up some great postseason career numbers.

Smitty's regular season stats won't get him in.

If Ray Lewis can get in with the suspicion surrounding two deaths, then Smith's past indiscretions should not be held against him. Yes, Lewis has a couple of rings, and Smith may never get one, but Smith has been the most enigmatic and explosive receiver the NFL has ever seen.

I am hoping that G-man, Rivera, Cam and the team steps up to the level of Smith's heart, and helps 89 earn the ring that his career absolutely warrants.

Oh, yeah, that's a surety. How could we ever let any other player wear 89? Panthers fans everywhere would explode, and the epicenter of the indignation would be the Huddle.

If Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Reggie White, etc. can play elsewhere.....so can Smith. He better hang it up at the right time or some people around here shouldn't be around sharp objects if that day where to come.
