I think you hire coaches to develop guys. If the price was too high then the price was too high, but speculation like that is beneath Voth. Poor conclusions with no substance.


Its just a blogger's opinion. It doesnt need to hold up in court.

You are really underestimating the importance of veterans helping to develop younger players. It us way more important than you think.

Voth isn't just a blogger, he's a well respected reporter with some valuable insight and obviously some people to talk to within the organization.

He's not Adam Schefter, but I have no reason to doubt his knowledge or question his credibility.

Voth has become our new go-to Panther major media source this year.  

 

What shame he puts to those boring monotone local reporters...I forget the name.  Some person...

This part

 

The Panthers strongly believe the way to sustained success is through developing their younger players. Smith was neither young nor someone they believed they could depend on to help develop younger guys. That all played a part in Gettleman’s football decision.

 

This part I have heard from tons of people familiar with the team, specifically about Keary Colbert and Dwayne Jarrett. At no point would Smith try to help these guys out. In fact, time and time again he'd go out of his way to make sure they knew the pecking order. He wasn't outwardly cruel to them or anything, just passively a dick. 

 

It probably wouldn't have helped with Jarrett. He was a fuging idiot who everyone knew was a fugtard. Hurney just rolled the dice and hoped for the best.

 

But Keary Colbert really needed that veteran presence. No one remembers he led all rookies in ypc in 2004 when he had Moose holding his hands. Then Moose leaves, Smith comes back and is like "who the fug is this kid?" On his path to one of the greatest receiving seasons ever, Smith made it known he was the top dog and had no interest tutoring Keary. Smith was still young then sure, and hadn't really had his big maturation moment. But he'd do poo like tell Keary to piss off when he and Delhomme were talking, or calling him out in the film room constantly. 

 

Keary melted down.

 

I'm sure he mellowed out as he got older, but he still never stepped forward to help guys out. One of the reasons they've never drafted a first round WR is that they were worried how Smith would react.

Voth and David Newton are far better than the Disturber twins.

Funnily though Smith saw Jarrett immediately for what he was. We all remember when he flat out told him to study his playbook more during an interview. Apparently when he went up to introduce himself to Smith (he was told to do this by another member of the team) he stopped mid sentence to answer a text lol.

 

Smith was like "whelp fug that."

Cheap AND very nice quality?

Say it ain't so. Can I just give you my credit card info here?

I'd hate to miss out.
