  • Steve Smith?

    Now before you get the tar and feathers hear me out. With the way Victor Cruz contract negotiation going would it be a bad idea to bring him back? He knows the offense and hasn't done anything since leaving ny to warrant a big payday. He will be begging to come back if Cruz walks. Would you guys be ok with it? Of course I would much rather keep Cruz but its not looking like he's gonna give a hometown discount. Thoughts? Or even amendola

      I'd rather roll with Barden the Terrible...

      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

        He can't play anymore. He just isn't the same guy since the Microfracture surgery.
        Its too bad but its just the way it is.
        (Unless you mean Steve Smith from Carolina...Haha)
        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

            The two receivers are not connected. Smith can't replace Cruz' production.
            If we want to give Smith a look as a number 5 receiver on the cheap that's a whole different topic.
            His problem with being our #4 or 5 is that he isn't worth much on ST and all of our backup receivers need to excel there in order to stick. That is Barden's problem as well. Smith also hasn't shown that he is bak from the knee surgery at a level that allows him to compete in the NFL,
            No one remembers who came in second.

              #4 or #5 WR's need to play ST's.
              Its almost impossible to imagine that Smith would ever be a consideration for us.
              I actually think his career is over.

                  I agree that his career is likely over. I know this is an unpopular position among some here but Smith made the right decision to take the extra money for his family from the Eagles. Unfortunately, for a guy who we thought was social media saavy, he fumbled the end game here. That said, we were smarter than the Eagles in that transaction and so was Smith.

                    When SS was in ny he was 1 of the best 3rd down Wr's in the league. He may not be a down field threat like Cruz but he kept the chains moving. We struggled a lot on 3rd downs lately. Most of it is Gilbrides fault but 3rd downs were his specialty.

                      Man I completely agree with that. He made the right decision to take advantage of the stupidity of the Eagles.
                      Everyone was trashing him here when he did that but it was by far the best decision he could make.

                        Right....When SS was here............past tense.
                        He can't play anymore.
