Smitty needs some stats.....

 

He needs postseason stats and a ring.  Regular season stats at this point don't mean much for having a shot at the HOF IMO..

Compared to his contemporaries, #89 has triple the receiving yards in the postseason than Andre Johnson and is on par with Larry Fitzgerald in yards and touchdowns.

 

Steve also has more combined yards than the other two and none of the three have any rings. 

 

If Steve doesn't make it then neither should the other two.

it will be hard for Andre Johnson type WRs to get....there will such a log jam of WRs of his caliber.

 

Steve was on pace to have a historical postseason resume.....he needs to go back to adding to it to get into the HOF IMO.

 

Fitzgerald has better numbers than 89 right now....that gives him an edge (regular and post)

It seems to me though that most reports that I see is that Larry and Andre are locks for the HOF while Smitty is on the outside of the fence. I just don't see why when the numbers don't support it.

numbers support Fitz over 89

 

Johnson I don't believe belongs on the talk with either

Steve says a lot of things he probably shouldn't. What he said is true but is it really necessary to keep blasting your former coach publicly.

Steve is no longer a dominant player and it comes across as him not being able to accept himself as an average WR at age 34. It's like he has to give excuses as to why he is no longer putting up All Pro numbers.

However, the next day he'll go on the radio and talk about how he enjoys taking a back seat to the younger guys now and is just doing his part to help the team win.

Complete mind fug.




Disclaimer:

Before everyone comes running to call me an idiot and defend Steve like an overprotective mother, Steve Smith is, and will always be, my favorite athlete. I love that guy and want to see him finish his career here and play as long as he wants. He deserves a Super Bowl ring and I hope he gets one here. That said, he isn't perfect. He still says dumb stuff. Blast away.

 

Who is Ryan Kalil?

"The Panthers can clinch a playoff spot with -- a win over New Orleans, an Arizona loss to St. Louis, a San Francisco loss to Seattle, a Philadelphia loss or tie with Detroit and a Dallas loss or tie with Chicago. 


OK, maybe not the best odds this week. "

 

-I'm not gonna lie, those are actually pretty good odds.

he didn't say anything dumb.

And while you feel steve smith is nothing but an average receiver, those who know, give him hus respect weekly.

Most teams would love to have Steve Smith right now.
It's more than just numbers.

I agree with you and I think if we get into the playoffs which I feel we will. I think him along with everybody else is going to step there game up in the post-season because they will know its one and done.

("“A lot of years, I had great stats sitting at home in January watching other people play.”)

 

Smitty cut right to the meat of the subject. Stats are great but often for losers,winning is what it's all about.

I truly mean it when I say "There is no reason not to love this guy."

Some people may think he says "dumb stuff" but I think it's refreshing to see a player speak his mind instead of robotically repeating the company line.

His body of work in the NFL so far puts him in a serious discussion for the HoF. Nobody thought he would be much more than an exciting punt returner and a few years later he achieves the receiving TRIPLE CROWN!!!

There is no player in the league like Steve Smith for a myriad of reasons.
