thank you GOAT! I missed that other thread, great find man!!

I love that write up, written by a true fan. Love the comments too, glad to see other fanbases give the man the respect he deserves.

He is the greatest WR ever, of all time.

This is not a knock on Delhomme, but imagine if smitty had Brady, favre or manning in his prime... He would've gotten much more attention than he does now, would probably be a hall of famer already.. but I think once cam gets it all together smitty will have one more season for the ages. *at least that's what I keep telling myself*

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

Isnt that the one where the guy says he hadnt slept and/or was impaired at the time he wrote it?

Im just grateful everything he's done.

He is going to be a HOFer regardless of his fights with Lucas and Bright. Most voters may hate him but there is no doubt they respect him. I think when his career is over and he waits his 5 years the triple crown will have more weight. Teams still fear him and ALWAYS know where he is.

If the barred every fighter or tough guy from the HOF the hall would be half full.

Smitty will be an icon in Charlotte like Unitas was in Baltimore.

Smitty is just the best as a player and a man.

It really is too bad Smitty had to play most of his career on a team that would rather run than pass, and, for whatever reason, failed to give him a QB capable of utilizing his skills to the fullest. As exciting as Smitty has been, it could have been so much better. As much as I love Smitty. I have to believe the numbers are just not there for the HOF. YET. ...................................IMO, he needs 1or 2 more very good years to go with 1 or 2 good years to have a shot. Which is very possipable. He needs to separate himself from some of these kids, so when he hangs em' up his numbers will speak as well as the play. Or at least that is what I think I am thinking.

    • Cam will get the calls.  The hits to Cam head was too much of a talking point in a negative manner towards the NFL last year.  The discussion on the hits to his head were part of the reason this rule change was made.  NFL tried to paint the picture that Cam was being treated the same as other QBs while coming up with new ways to say he wasn't protected by the rule when an obvious miss call was made.  Ex. wrapping technique when hit low in the pocket.  Posture when hit in the pocket in the head.  Then this offseason they change the rule to make it look like they were proactive in protecting players.  Cam will get the calls and they will toot their own horn saying how the change in the rule is working.
