Steve Smith on Gettleman's "Evaluation" comment

It's funny a lot of posters are willing to sacrifice team success in order to keep a guy they like. Very Hurney like.

agreed, but to be fair i think a lot of it is based in a belief that we can't be good without him, which just isn't the case. he can and will be replaced when it's time. it won't be smitty v.2, but it will be someone who can produce big time for us. the crazy thing about how much he's getting paid, we can get 2-3 players who can each put up as much yardage and TDs as he did last year.

I am not here to say what approach is right or which one is wrong, but I just wanted to say, that those claiming that it is a business and Smith needs to understand this...

 

I bet not catch one of you criticizing players for taking as much money as possible or as many years as possible or for not providing "discounts" to any organization.

 

Not saying cutting Smith is right or wrong, just pointing out the hypocrisy that exists.

Yea, I missed what they said on air.  Just caught that tweet and tuned in online to the show. Seeing if they say anything else about it.

I think players should ask for as much guaranteed money as possible. It's why I'm not mad at Stewart or Williams, they did what was best for them and that was getting paid.

Yeah because the Panthers have screwed Steve Smith.  Which is why he's been with us for 11 seasons and very handsomely rewarded for 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.

 

Yes he would. Steves intensity and passion is enough to land him on a team, plus its not like he's some slouch, he can still play and contribute.

Something called respect and commitment. Don't give me that better for the team bs because chances are he won't use it.
