Both jacksons?


Yea I edited to show that too.

To be honest, OP makes the opposite point he is going for pretty darn well.

Marshall for sure. I'd rather have smith than Colston. Trying to take the homer goggles off, I only see like 6 or 7 i'd rather have.

We should have out bid Chicago for Marshall when he was with the Dolphins; that is the kind of WR we need for Cam.


Agree. Love some Brandon Marshall.

Brandon Marshall?

Victor Cruz?

Harvin, desean Jackson, V Jack, Mike Wallace....


We are not talking about 2011 Steve Smith.

Marshall would have made the list, but I had the displeasure of watching him flounder in Miami for a couple years.  Cutler and Marshall are good together, but Marshall doesn't always play well with others.

 

Cruz...no.

 

Harvin...NO

 

Jackson maybe

 

V. Jack two years ago but not now.

 

Wallace maybe but I don't see him as a possession WR.  He makes huge plays but the not the plays SS makes, plus I would never pay a WR that kind of money unless he was Calvin Johnson and only Calvin Johnson.

Those are all base salary deals.....so...none of those number included bonuses.


Yes, so? You're saying that we should pay him 7 mil next year.. 9 mil in 2015 and 12 in 2016 to be a slot receiver and cheerleader? That's what I keep hearing.

Well then you don't understand Gettleman.  He will not.  He will find players that are cap friendly.  I doubt he would pay any of those players the Salary they are making except the ones I listed.

Put it in list format, then add each of their stats as well - Rec, Yds, and TDs over the last 3 seasons.  Just surface level stats.  Then add one more number - age.

 

Steve is my favorite player of all time.  He is, without question, my favorite player to watch.  That being said, I currently count 18 guys on that list that I'd replace him with.  That may actually rise based on what their performance output over the last three years tells me.

 

The business aspect of all of this dramatic situation makes perfect sense.  Why pay a guy $7M when he is worth $2M in output?  You're welcome to argue my valuation, but that's simply my opinion.  You won't have any luck changing it.  If he was 25, my opinion would be different.  Unfortunately, he is not.

I'm saying we let SS play in 2014 and either restructure or cut him in 2015 depending on his production.  Hopefully Gettleman will get Benjamin and another rookie in here along with a Ginn type WR to compliment SS and allow the Panthers to be competitive next season.  

 

You guys can not really believe that Cam can win with a brand new OL and all new WRs.  Do you??

Of the people under Smitty, I would definitely take AJ Green, possibly Demaryius, possibly Jordy. The only one for sure though that I'd take over smith is AJ Green.

In the 2014 season I would take SS 6th overall out of that list, considering the cap hit and the players that I listed.  

 

Stats don't mean squat to me.  SS was not targeted nearly as much as he was when Chud was the OC, but his value was the possession receiving yards.  The drive sustaining catches.  The things that are not shown in the stats but only on the field.  Please tell me you guys haven't forgotten how he dismantled Talib, the 2nd or 3rd best CB in the league??

 

Every team game plans for SS, all of them!  His stats are not indicative of his play last season.  If you watch the games you know that.

man how is calvin johnson not the highest paid wr in the game?  teams over pay for the first player they can get their hands on, that's why.

He is. You need to look at total contract value

All that we need to know about you....Damn the stats, damn the data, damn facts. Your opinion is all that should matter. 

 

Just stop.

The bad thing is that the list of players getting paid more than Smitty will get smaller and smaller over the next few years...as Smitty's production keeps diminishing.

It's sad to the fans that we have to watch our great prize-fighter's legacy flame out. Meanwhile embittering the entire fanbase because of his ballooning contract and his unwillingness to be more flexible, taking his production and diminished role into consideration and holding the franchise and teammates hostage because of his pride...until the only people that staying a Panther benefits is Smitty and his family and if he doesn't put his pride aside, that will be his legacy.
