Ronde's comments about Smitty

Ronde during an interview about retirement was asked about best receiver he has faced.  He mentions megaton and randy moss as being virtually unstoppable but then says Steve Smith was the toughest guy he ever faced.  Plays harder than anyone else.  Glad to see Smitty getting some recognition.  Imagine what he would have done with good quarterback play his entire career.

Love that Barber gave Smitty some much deserved respect!  Steve's stats would be absolutely amazing if he had spent his career with a good QB.  Even with his current numbers, I believe Smitty should be considered for the HOF.

Re: Ronde's comments about Smitty

Smitty was fortunate to have a good QB (not great) but they had a GREAT relationship.  Many people have issues with JD but he was a good QB just not great by any means.  I think a lot of people forget the JD's main target was a WR liberally measured as 5'9".  I've stood next to him at 6'2" he is obviously shorter than me.  I've stood next to Ty Lawson also listed at 5'9" it was apparent but not as much as Smitty.  Of course Ty Lawson is built like a tank so that may be the reason.  lol.  But for JD to get the ball so consistently to such a small target took GREAT skill.  Works both ways....

Re: Ronde's comments about Smitty

Very good article and spot on IMO.  I still think that the lack of a true number two hurts him more than QB play though.  I mean outside of Moose we haven't had one the entire time he was here.  If you look at the season where Smitty is not injured and we have Moose, those are his best seasons.

Re: Ronde's comments about Smitty

Great reads!!  No reason whatsoever that Smitty shouldn't eventually get in.  What he has accomplished, especially at his size, speaks volumes to the prolific career he has had.
