You are insane. PLEASE show me where does Cotchery make the catches that Steve Smith does? Or the effort in blocking that Steve Smith does? In comparison, Steve Smith was signed TWO days after he was released. Cotchery? Two weeks after FA.
The fact of the matter is that steve smith's production last year is easily replaceable by a veteran wr which is why gettleman released smith. Smith is on the downside of his career, he was hurt last year and was slowing down. Those are the facts of the matter. People need to stop being emotional about this poo.
I find it very odd that you are taking this sort of stance onthe issue. You of all people have been an avid fan if his for years, and yet here you are agreeing with why he's not here? I know it's probably not popular to challenge the one who runs this site, but I would have expected a bit more loyalty from someone of your stature.
I get the fact that he's gone, and it's best to just agree with the front office's devision to can him, but c'mon man. Do you really disagree with the way it was handled? He was indeed thrown out like trash. To me, after all he's sacrificed to be here with Jimmy Clausen as his QB for heavens sakes, he earned more than what he got in the end.
Id be interested in your response, if you'd be so kind to let us all in your mind. Keep in mind when you answer, that not even one player has come out in support if this move, and Ron Rivera has spoken out indirectly as to how this was handled. None the less, as the Panthers' camera man, I'd love for you to provide reasons for your opinion, other than the vanilla crap you just tried to feed us.
I'm sure zod knows a little more than the average person about what was going on behind closed door.
Britt, Jackson--the fact that these 2 very talented guys were/are not wanted by their teams speaks volumes. IF it is true that Gettlemen thought Smitty was a distraction and cut him, I do not see him bringing in one of these gems. Nor do I see us surrendering a 3rd rounder to get him.
I don't think it's as simple as gettleman saw smitty as a distraction and decided to cut him. It was a combination of age, production, contract and the "distraction" part of it as well. For example, Gettleman would not be releasing a 27 year old smitty because he is a "distraction"
Do you think it would be a smart move to have your franchise QB there at the evaluation so he can throw the guy some balls to see if his hands can handle his passes? wtf is wrong with some of you people...
wtf is wrong with you? This has always been the way the nfl has done it. You don't need to have franchise qbs throw them balls because they are all professionals. They know how to catch a damn football and trainers know how to throw a football.
B.B.But.... I thought no one wanted to play for the panthers now that free agents know there is an evil miser for a gm. Anyway I hope gettleman can offer him something that is attractive both for the panthers and for him.
