HOW ABOUT THIS....

Now, before you go and put this down, fully read through it and give deep thought to it....

I've looked at salary numbers... Yes, Peppers is getting a butt load of money from us... and could be possibly resigned at the end of the season... but will anyone buy in on a trade for him.... probably not... especially for the money he wants and what the Panthers want in return....

Now, considering OTHER players that have a signigicant amount of money, and I know everyone loves him.... BUT....

We trade Smitty for the max we can get... I think if we get rid of smitty we fix delhomme... hear me out here...

Delhomme has a problem with fixating on Smitty... If you look at all his interceptions from last season and this season, 95% of them are when he's going to smitty... and now everyone in the league is spying on that transition.... yeah, we've masked it a few times, but all in all... the delhomme to smitty connection has been all but lost... getting rid of him will force delhomme to spread the ball around and to stop being so predictable. We could possibly get a #1 and #2/3 for him... enough to get us a QB, OL, and DL in the draft and address WR/DB and more OL/DL later on....

There are more teams out there willing to give that up for smitty than there are for Peppers... We can still use him on Defense as well as the other younger players on DEF and regroup the DEF for next year.... We would be able to go after McCoy, Tebow, Pike, Pryor... and have them come in and make an immediate impact... Sam Bradford is a BUST. The injury he has suffered has many doubts surrounding his return now and his possible NFL future... (SEE REFERENCE HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER QB WHITE FROM OU...)

I love smitty, but with Fox's loyalty to Delhomme and his contract extension, getting rid of Smitty is probably the last line of defense to get Delhomme back to his way of old....

You let Peppers walk if we can't at least get like 2 2nd rounders for him.  You take all that extra money and get some good free agents.  You could get 2-3 players that are vets who produce better than Peppers for 17 million.

Re: HOW ABOUT THIS....

So you think taking the best WR in the league OFF the team will make Delhomme a better QB? Seriously!?

That would be like taking an officer's gun away and telling him to go fight crime.

Regoria see 2004.   JD's best year as a pro with regards to TDs. Completions, Passing yards.  Smitty was hurt most of the year.

Re: HOW ABOUT THIS....

I don't like the idea. Althought I hate to admit it makes sense. I also know is not happening though. 2 second rounders or a first and a second sounds good for Peppers. Hell I would even consider a 1st and 3rd seriously.

We are not getting rid of Smith you can take that to the bank. Desicions by the Front Office on this team are very calculated and very conservative.

I think if they wouldnt put SOOOOO much emphasis to just building thru the draft and add just one or 2 veterans free agents per season to fill in where needed we wouldnt be on the situation we are in right now. But thats just my opinion.

Re: HOW ABOUT THIS....

How about this.....we get a QB that can spread the ball around.  If we had a Drew Brees or Peyton Manning we would be unstoppable on offense, but Delhomme often locks into smitty and the defense will bait delhomme into throwing to Smitty.  I.E.  They make it look like he is open and when Delhomme throws there is a defender ready to step in- just look at the AZ game.  I hate to say it but Smitty isn't the problem in the passing game.  Delhomme is.

Yeah that was 5 years ago when he was actually good. Jake is the problem here not Smitty.
