Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

Recommended Posts

We're not talking about talent, we're talking about coaching. Smith has publicly called out many of these guys. Granted some like jarret deserved it.

 

So we can draft anybody, or bring anyone in off the street and Smitty is supposed to coach em up?  Why not pick up some insanely fast Nigerian who doesn't speak English, Smitty can handle the coaching.......

 

Bottom line is the team currently has 1 Starting OL, two Gs who MIGHT pan out, and a bunch of scrubs.  They also have Smitty as the entire WR core.  Kids and free agents will not keep Cam off his backside. He will have less time to throw to recievers this year.

 

Givin this situation, relying on FAs and rooks is suicide.

Just got here and 518 posts in this thread. I was really hoping we would find a way to keep Smitty.  Will miss him.  Too bad the Panthers never got a receiver that would have allowed him to play the slot.  Thought this might be the year.  Pound for pound he is the toughest guy in the NFL.

This is true but it also gives us ~10 mil cap space next season. Gets us out of the hole quicker by taking the hit up front.

lose 2 mil in cap space is not more for us.

I guess we're not completely in the same page and that's ok. Imo steve (and I have no inside information whatsoever) isn't the coaching type. He holds himself to a very high standard and works very hard to overcome everything standing in his way. There is a reason he has been in the league this long and that's because he has more fight in him than any player I've watched since really getting into football. Like I said, IF it was going to happen, it would have ready happened. I think the question is whether or not we think he would be a good coach, regardless of players brought in. Because yes I agree, we havent brought the best of the best.

Sucks to see smitty go out like this, but I hope he ends up on a great team and makes the superbowl and win.

saves 10 mill in 2015. saves 12 mill in 2016.

 

if we designate him a june 1st cut, it saves 3 mill this season. then 4 mill. then 12 in '16.
