Stumbled across this the other day. I don't post much anymore, and I failed to find anything via the search on this, so if it has already been posted please be gentle.

Enjoy.

The comments of that post are the best. I love reading what fans of other teams have to say about 89.

Best and favorite Panther ever. Period. I love this quote ...

"Steve Smith is the original Honey Badger."

and hopefully this happens ...

"I believe that Steve Smith will share a statue with Sam Mills. Sam Mills will take the East gate, and Smitty will take the West gate."

It is funny picking up on peoples odd typing nuances.

For instance I generally make new lines in emails to clients and such to separate thoughts. This can be quite annoying or so I hear.

Steve Smith categorically is the MOST underrated receiver I can honestly think of. I mean how the fug do you win the god damn triple crown, yet there has never been any mention besides a brief article that year...

Pathetic honestly by the media, but the fact he never gives up regardless of the lack of respect he gets as an athlete still astonishes me to this day.

In conclusion, Steve Smith you're the fuging man and you're going in my hall of fame.

I've read better prose on the back of a shampoo bottle, but it's cool to see him getting props

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
