Smith was viewed as a distraction by Getts

Well, "distraction" doesn't necessarily mean "asshole". The distraction could come from Smitty jumping in when someone else is trying to talk to/explain something to Cam... Or anyone else for that matter.

Also, this story seems to have originated with Person... Just sayin...

Gotcha. Thanks, for being mature, man.

From The Charlotte Observer's Joseph Person: "Sources say (general manager Dave) Gettleman views Smith as a distraction and is ready to turn the locker room over to emerging stars such as quarterback Cam Newton and middle linebacker Luke Kuechly. Smith's fiery personality has made him a fan favorite, but can grate on teammates and coaches."

I just hope Gettleman and Co. have some anecdotes and other relatable stories to talk to the team about so they don't always think they are on the chopping block and don't feel like they have a place to call home.. And before one of you idiots think I'm criticizing the way gettleman isn't paying loyalty over performance, I'm talking about having a welcoming team atmosphere, not a prison league team feel.

Can we just cut Smitty already? Get it over with already, no one is going to trade for him.

I've had major disdain for just about every boss I've ever had.

Every body hates their boss, man...but when you have to ride bitch to a fellow employee who's been around linger than me, now that's where I draw the line.

Whiny fans.

 

Gman taking one for the team.

 

Looks like the coaches and players are not exactly coming out on twitter or whatever saying, "what is going on"?

 

Article states and other tweets have stated that this is being done for Cam and others.  Rivera made the same type statement that Gman made while he was in Indy.

 

Give it up on the Gman hate, you guys look like jr high kids.  Sheesh.  The sell other jerseys, buy one!

 

Just think how you'd feel next year this time if Smith got even slower and maybe got 450 yds and 2 TD's and hampered the teams ability to sign Cam.

 

You guys would be equally critical the Gman did not get rid of Smith when he had the chance and now we can't sign Cam.  You guys whine at everything

Cap space. Stop being selfish.

I do have a problem with all the chirping and news coming out of this FO.

If you're letting him go then let that be all the media knows. No need to kick and pick at Smitty on the way out.

 

Agreed. They need to shut their damn mouth and get it over with. No need to kick him in the ass on the way out the door.
