Steve Smith's son thinks we should make a trade for a certain WR before the deadline

Recommended Posts

What did the Ravens do to McNair?

There was a whole big brouhaha between McNair and the Ravens late in his career.

As was stated before, football is a business. "Loyalty" in the NFL is an amusing concept. Teams are 'loyal' to guys who are producing. Players are 'loyal' to whatever team pays them the most. And on both sides, it's justified.

That's why people hoping for storybook endings generally wind up disappointed.

This isn't a fairy tale.

Sounds like Cam had no problem spreading the ball around with Steve Smith on the field.

Sounds more like Steve Smith wasn't playing as well as he had in prior years (especially late in the season).

Exactly.

Now explain to me how that somehow extrapolates to Steve Smith carrying the team.

Panther fans > Steve Smith fans

This is the only thread he has posted in, so he doesn't care about the Panthers, only Steve Smith.

Pretty much.

Hero worship is fun when you're a kid, but sometimes when you grow up you learn unpleasant facts about the guys you used to idolize.

Part of becoming an adult, I guess.

Moral of the story -> don't burn your bridges

I say Smitty only comes back to sign a 1 day contract and retire

This thread was pretty entertaining tho

He got benched for being awful while trying to play injured then retired. That the big brouhaha?

No. There was more to it than that. That's not the point, though. It's just an example.

The point is that this whole idea that other teams demonstrate some great "loyalty" to their players while the mean old Panthers just toss people aside is ridiculous.

You can find examples of beloved players getting cut loose for every single team in the league. You might even find some of the harsher stories come from some of the league's more successful teams.

It's a business, and if you want to be successful, you run it like one.

gotcha. I just remember him playing like crap then basically saying it would be the right decision to bench him.

I agree with you about the no loyalty part. It's a business. The most unloyal franchise is the Patriots who are also the most successful in the last 15 years.

Reading that instagram post I felt like my uncle came to the family reunion to only tell us he won the Powerball and f*ck off..

I was one of his big supporters but that clearly was a shot at Panthernation..I hope he stays AND retires in Baltimore..
