The Official Steve Smith Countdown Thread (1 Viewer)

Or count up thread in this case. Barring injury, triple digits will be hung in the reception column this year. Yup, 100 catches for Smith this year. Since Dodds, Woods, and several others around here apparently didn't watch the pre-season games and realize that he's back, I figured I'd be helpful and track the catches here...thereby saving them unnecessary viewing time for the rest of the season too.FBG is 77 recpts this year and 5 this week. The FBG yardage bogey is 1030. I expect that number to be crushed too.bassnbrewrules

 
I believe Steve Smith is one of the safer wide receiver options on the market (this said about a guy who broke his leg last year - freak injury). Consistant production, big-play ablity, great hands......yada, yada101 - 1297 - 11I targeted him, just missed out.

 
Steve Smith = good, but he'll have his hands full week 1 with Mike McKenzie. Five catches for about 40 yards sounds right for week 1. The Saints will be tough to pass on this year.

You have clearly never heard of Fakhir Brown. :D

Sorry to be "Johnny rain cloud" to your prognostication, but....Tough to pass on and Saints in the same sentence?? :lmao:

Got him in every league, at very fair prices. While many were taking Andre Johnson, Roy W, etc... Smith fell right in my lap each time. The guy is simply going to be huge this year. Agree totally that he is a one of the safer options at WR. Outside of the top 5 WR's, I don't see any other WR having a better situation/potential for consistent, quality starts. Given where you could have drafted him this year, he might be the best "Shark" pick of all this season. I'll say it again, those that got him as their #2 are going to be delivering many a beat down this year-- top 12 easily with upside for top 7'ish....

What the hell does that mean? Obviously I don't get it cause I'm thinking something very negative. :loco:

Carolina's #2 had 2 catches last year in week 17 against Fakhir and the Saints. Just because the average fan dosn't know his name dosn't mean he didn't do a good job. The Saints have replaced 6 starters from the start of last year, yet people still use the stats from the start of the season to judge the Saints D. Steve Smith will be average week 1, and I will return this Steve Smith thread to BassNBrew.

 
I only have one caveat about Steve Smith.His breakout season was largely due to the presence of the playaction generated from a strong running game. Since he only has one good season under his belt, how he would've been affected under last year's circumstances (which seem repeatable since the RBs are exactly the same), are an unknown.That said, he's the most talented WR on his team and if the running game fails, I'd expect Delhomme to look to him.Then again, you never know with these things.

 
People seem to forget that last year right before he broke his legin the first game, he had:6 CATCHES for 60 YARDS in one halfIN PPR leagues he might very well be TOP 5 this year. And I didn't even get him in any of my leagues......

OMG 6 catches in ONE HALF!!!?That's NEVER happened before I'm sure.

 
Smiths injury last yr was the beginning of the end for many teams. I agree he will be LARGE this yr. Have him as WR2(5th round) behnd CJ

If you were watching that game as I was, then you would know that the guy was the absolute focal point of that game. They were trying so many different ways to get the ball in his hands. If you think he is injury prone, fine. But the bottom line is that if he stays healthy he will catch 85+ balls this year with a high likelihood of closer to 100 catches.

Excellent points. He was absolutely killing the Packers in that game --- yeah it was the Packers I realize but it was still a very impressive performance. I'm not sure I'm on board with Bass as far as Smith catching 100 passes, but I agree he is a serious talent and if you have him as a WR1 you'll be thrilled. If you have him as your WR2 you're going to be elated. He's legit.

 
Maybe I'm the only one here but I actually think he will under perform his ranking this year. My opinion is that alot of his success had to do with the fact that he had Muhammed on the other side. I think he may end up like Peerless Price when he went to Atlanta. These are smaller receivers that just aren't capable of being #1 targets. Until Colbert or Gardner prove they can produce effectively to keep the double-teams off of Smith, then I don't agree with all of the hype. The same thing happened to Johnny Morton when he left Detroit for K.C. He was a solid #2 with the Lions but just couldn't produce as a #1 with K.C. Off of the top of my head, Harrison is the only smaller WR that produces year in year out. I could be totally off with that one and please tell me if I am.

 
:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: BassNBrew WASTED off the SSmith kool-aid - I LUV IT!Smith obviously set to rebound, but less than 90 catches in '05.

Well, since Muhsin was busy catching 100 yards worth of balls and 2 TD, I guess the #2 wasn't that big a deal. Furthermore, Delhomme passed for 300+ plus yards on that secondary. Yes, they've replaced six starters, but outside of McKenzie and Smith, where has there been improvement? Brown is mediocre at best, and the Saints pass D will still be somewhat suspect.

I know it's only one week but it looks like I may have been a bit off in my prediction. :wall:
 
8-138-1

92 more to go.

For those of you who didn't see the game, Smith a one TD called back on a penalty (nice celebration too for naught) and had two potential TD catches just out of bounds. There was a another play where he would have been gone for another long TD save a jersey tackle from behind. Additionally, I counted two other endzone targets. Smith was catching just about everything in site and Delhomme is locked on him.

On the downside, he had to be helped off the field twice. Injury is still the biggest threat to him not reach the 100 bogey.

He jogged off the field the first time on his own. He was escorted off the field the second time. Both times he had the wind knocked out of him.
 
12-172-1

The express took a hit today, 4-34-0. Honestly I didn't believe SS was capable of have a sub 50 yard rec day. Targets were way off as Delhomme attempted to spread the ball around. 36 rushing attemtps, 26 passing attempts. Smith is now on pace for 96-1204-8, about where I projected him. FYI...He had a punt return TD called back for a penalty.

sweet.
 
92 yards, 2 TD, and it's only the first half.

:pickle:
Thanks for the jinx :(
:lmao: 53 yd TD.

170 yds, 3 TD.
Like I said in numerous other posts, those (like myself) who took Smith as their WR2, are going to deal a beat down to many an opponent this year. The guy is simply incredible. Buckle up folks, there's more to come this year! :thumbup:
 
The guy is an absolute stud. I'm not sure why people were doubting him. The only question he had to answer was whether he was all the way back from his injury and he looked great in the pre-season so he put that question to bed. It was obvious he was the team's go-to WR before he got hurt last season so when people kept saying the Panthers lost their go-to WR I kept laughing because they didn't lose him; Muhammad wasn't the go-to WR to begin with. Smith was. And with Delhomme at QB all signs were pointing toward Smith having a huge year.The guy is damn good. Case closed.

He's my #2.Behind Torry Holt.

:pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle:
Thanks to Bass N Brew for making think twice about a stupid trade... Smith is my #2 behind Chad Johnson and ahead of Reggie Wayne. :banned:

I just traded for him in two leagues this past week. Pretty happy I did at this point.(Gave up DJax in one and Collins in another)

 
I wanted this guy on my team so bad, just missed him in the fourth.My receiving corps of Owens/Horn/S.Smith would have been quite dominant, more than enough to compensate for my Duckett/Barlow RB2 platoon.
