PFF ranks Ginn higher than Smitty

Ginn has been playing better easily.  It's not a knock on Smith, but a compliment for Ginn.  No one expected him to be more than a return guy.  

 

Smitty is basically what Hines Ward was in the twilight of his career(a little better though).

it's true, but no matter the reason, it shouldn't be.

People can rag on Steve right now, but once he's gone, they'll be blubbering like a little kid.

 

He's 34, it isn't his fault we have been dreadfully inept at acquiring a worthy replacement for him. Or hell, even someone worthy enough to just pair with him since Moose left. If you think you are unhappy with our receiver core right now, just wait a few more years and see.

 

Ginn has certainly been impressive, I just hope he can consistently maintain this level of play.

If we can't find a young stud WR soon.....might as well fire Gettlemen. It ain't that hard. Usually finding a QB that can fling it is the hard part

at the moment yes but not for long, his rating would probably be higher if he'd take the yards instead of trying to run over 3 defenders lol but that's smitty some of you guys worry too much he hasn't lost a step our other wr are just getting open and Cam is spreading he rock

Steve Smith didn't launch himself.  He decided to ignore gravity.

Smitty has obviously lost a step, like most receivers do once they edge into their 30's.  He's still competitive and still a good receiver but clearly he's not the receiver he once was.  Ginn is probably better at this point, but he'll never be as good as Smitty was in his prime.

Is this still Steve fuggin Smith we are talking about?

 

 

He's always been good for a few bad drops here and there, but I would take Smith all day with the game on the line across the middle.

 

Did anyone see his finger-tip grab on Sunday?

I haven't watched much this year outside if my 3rd ranked Tigers and the Chickens of Columbia.

Sammy has a big week this week? He will probably require some Julio Jones type deal bc I think he will explode if he gets over this hump. FSU is a big stock game for him. They give him a chance to show if he has improved against legit physical CB play
