My guess is that a phone call will be made from Gettleman's office to discuss things.

Hopefully it's all a misunderstanding.  I was hoping Gettleman's comment was just a generic answer and there was nothing really to it.

would he, though?

 

Aging receivers have a tendency to be left out in the cold, even if they still have the ability to contribute.  Teams don't want to lose the roster spot that would otherwise be occupied by a younger, developing receiver.

It's ridiculous he'd be treated this way - he's a team captain and the best player in team history. He at least needs a heads-up on this.

If we lose Smith which we wont but if we did I will be off the Gettle bandwagon in a heartbeat...I will probably hate David, Steve is like  Daryl from The Walking Dead he is the only safe person.

 

Gettle will then be known as The Governor...

 

 

Sunday cant get here quick enough

I think that is a distinct possibilty and probably the best case scenario.

Pretty clear that DG evaluates everyone evenly. Considering one of the first things he said about Cam was that he better produce wins....

Marty Hurney is no longer here. Steve will be a Panther bc he's a good player not because he's a team legend. He needs to realize that.

Best-case scenario is that he wasn't referring to cutting him, he was talking about him getting up there in age and the team needs to look at moving him to the slot (which he wants) and signing or drafting more receivers. I surely hope that's the case.

My favorite player of all time, but 89 cannot play anymore. He's making too much money for his production. It's a young man's game and Smitty isnt very young now. I dont believe Smitty will even reach 600 yards next season. Either take a pay cut or gotta start looking toward the future.
