  • IF we could get back Steve Smith and/or Jake Ballard

    Would you want them back in blue? I know both had serious injuries to them.......Steve more so with the microfracture surgery from 2 seasons ago. I know Cruz has replaced Steve's production, and Ballard was forgotten with Benett's signing.......but still we could possibly use these guys, and they played great for us.

    They both have microfracture injuries. Smith has not returned to the player he was before his injury, the jury is still out on Ballard. Since we don't need either, I'd say no.

      I don't want ANYONE on the team, taking up cap and roster space with unresolved injury issues.
      No one remembers who came in second.

          I'd be willing to take Ballard back, but not SS12.

            That could be quite a gamble. I hope he comes back strong, but I'm less inclined to find that our on this roster.

              I'm not sure why you would want Smith back. Cruz is light years better and we don't need depth, but for arguments sake, I would rather have Devin Thomas back before Smith.

                  Pass.. we are obviously a team of the future and in a rebuilding period, so why not let Reese draft some more young talent and break them in. Although I'd absolutely love to see it as much as the next fan, I dont see us making a bowl in the very near future with the team as it is. Lot of good rooks out there this year and I see the league headed in a younger direction overall.
                  PS- I like Bennet better in our scheme than Ballard.

                              I rather have a healthy Steve Smith but from what I've heard he hasn't returned to his old self post-surgery. Ballard was extremely slow before surgery. I'd like to see how he moves now.

                              I wouldn't want either unless they can show they can play like they used to.
