OP's opinion is irrelevant. Smitty is ageless, and only becomes stronger and less injury prone as each season comes and goes.

We've nothing to worry about.

name a team that lost their #1 wideout and still went deep in playoffs. there are players that would impact us more with an injury than Smith would.

Just playing devils advocate here....

2,245 yards, 7 TDs

Vs

1,758 yards, 8 TDs

One is LaFell the last 3 years and the other is Moose the 3 seasons before Smith went down. I don't think any of Moose's biggest fans saw that 2004 season happening.

Good teams add steady talent....

You add steady talent you can end up with Mike Wallace's, Steve Smith's, DeSean Jackson's, Greg Jennings'. I'm sure you didn't see any of them either.

and sometimes....AJ Green....is actually Braylon Edwards. Draft is always a gamble. With a young franchise QB....you are suppose to play the game and gamble for some talent.

We have added steady talent each year. 3 years ago we added LaFell, Pilares and Gettis, 2 years ago it was Olsen. Last year it was Adams, Murphy. This year it is Ginn. And those are just players who were either drafted or we use draft picks to acquire them. In free agency we added Shockey 3 years ago, 2 years ago we added Nannee. This year we added Hixon and are still not done. This isn't the whole list but just those we expected to play well and compete for either the number 2 wide receiver or were added to complement the passing game.
To say we haven't added anyone or tried to give Newton weapons is just naïve at best.

That's what I'm saying. 89 is still a critical key to this offense. That's great, but it's kinda sad when you can't say that about anyone else but Cam. Of course there is an argument for Olsen, but that's because there is no other proven home run hitter at WR.

Steady, average talent, yes. Prolific, no.

You are going pre Newton....I am talking about when you find your QB. You draft young talent specifically for him. We are unique in the fact he is entering year 3...and we haven't drafted him talent in the upper rounds

All we have drafted was Adams and he was always considered more of a return specialist move.



vet band-aids, 1 yr rentals, vet gambles, etc aren't what I am talking about...Olsen was a nice addition and you need those moves. However he is it. The fact we have drafted him help is becoming very noticeable compared to what franchises do when they get "their" young stud QB

Just because they haven't always worked out doesn't mean we haven't tried to find them. We keep trying and eventually will succeed. Did New York know they had a great player in Victor Cruz when they acquired him? But you act as if we aren't even trying....
