Anyone else tired of Smitty?

Recommended Posts

I love Smitty, but Im with CRA, hes having a lackluster year (drops, no TDs thru 6 weeks, fanning flamez at our QB). If he cant step up and play better maybe he should retire. Im tired pf long time vets who arent helping us win get passes for it.

He hasn't exactly had a QB that has done his part this season.

For whatever reason, tge entire team seems out if sorts.

Cam has played sub par. Smitty has played sub par. The OL has played sub par. Beason has played sub par. Gamble has played sub par. And the decent guts we have are all playin just ok.

There is a littering with this team right now.

You ppl kill me with this BS. Smith has anger issues no doubt but I'm good wit that cause he takes it out on opposing DB's and Ken Lucas, Bright, Delhomme, Clausen, Cam, Jenkins. Smith is one of the best WR in the league and yall want to point to him as our problem, get real. Our problem is us getting out coached, again this year. A 2nd is poor execution. A 3rd is poor defensive coaching & execution. A 4th is poor tackling. A 5th is...aww hell thts enough, but none of these is because of our best WR in Franchise History. Fans my a#@

Fixed it. Those are issues he had with players, but he also had an issue with his contract before, and asked to be traded, so he has also had issues with the FO. I'm sure that there is a bunch of drama that hasn't been released.

I'm not going to mindlessly support the best receiver in franchise history just because. If Carruth was the best in history, he would still be a POS. I support good production. I gave up on Steve a long time ago, and his prime is over with. Sorry your feelings get hurt, but buck up like your hero because he doesn't give a poo about anyone's opinion but his.

Nope, we went 2-0 without him. Delhomme spread the ball around, and Rosario became huge. Then Smith came back getting 10+ targets a game.

yeah, you're right, I remember now.

Yes he's had issues with players: Bright and Lucus - ironically they were both underachieving at their positions. I don't consider Delhomme and Cam issues other than they were not playing to expections as well. And not only, Smith's expections but yours and mine as well. And lastly, him asking for a trade and quote/unquote having a problem with the FO, in my opinion was more due to his involvement in the gameplan that year. His production fell off drastically because we ran the ball alot more. He was being used as a decoy and not a WR, of course he was upset. Any top player in the league would have issues if they aren't being allowed to contribute, not just Smith. All I'm saying is that we have far bigger problems than Steve Smith and our fans want to get rid of the best WR we've ever had. No he's not in his prime any longer but he's still better than alot of WR in their prime. Focus on the problem, cause it isn't Steve Smith.

Hate to say it but his talent has for the most part been wasted here. His best production years came when we had an average at best QB (Delhomme). Smith's play made Jake look a lot better than he was. The frustratingly simplistic offense we had going in Fox's last couple years made him want to leave. He sticks it out with the promise of a revamped offense under a new coach and last year was a huge step in the right direction. 2012... he realizes the potential this offense has yet it's wasted in the asinine way in which it's used, so I'm sure he's a little more than frustrated. At the play calling but probably more so at the seemingly ho-hum, new "It is what it is" man.

You aren't giving Delhomme enough credit. Pre-Tommy John he wasn't average at best.....your Smitty man love and AZ is clouding your judgement.

Smitty didn't make Delhomme....Delhomme's career high in yards and TDs both occured in 2004 WITHOUT Smith. Jake could play.

Most players want to win....

The routine is old that just bc a WR can play great.....that it somehow means he has no flaws and can't often have a negative impact. Smitty is like many in that regard.

And he has hurt us just as much as helped the past 3 weeks....just reality. He doesn't get a pass bc of something he did another season

Lol There's no Smitty man love goin on here. I'd prefer he channeled some of that frustration into catching the balls that ARE thrown his way and not playing UFC wanna be over by the sidelines. Or better yet, instead of chewing out Cam, go light into the clown that's running this circus.

Maybe I was a little harsh on Delhomme but I used to cringe when he threw the ball. I remember many circus catches on horrible throws. And he did have Muhammad, Proehl and Goings stepped up in a big way that year.

Let's say a little above average

^ there's a difference between sarcasm/joking and seriousness.

I know. I just found it a bit ironic.

Yes, I am getting sick of him and his retirement talk. Just retire already. This is Cam's team. Smitty wants to pick fights with everybody now it seems. You can see the frustration building, which is exactly the opposite of what you want in a veteran who is supposed to be a leader. You want calm, cool, collected, and focused with a positive disposition.

What is it Steve Smith? You see Cam's clothing line, his swag, his youth, his abilities, his charm, etc and feel a little envy? So now you're going to tell him to force you the ball and throw a fit when he doesn't? Cam is going to win with or without Steve.
