    So is this one my fault for not checking yesterday? I thought he was in a 3 year deal with Carolina anyway?

    Thats frustrating hes definitely got more in the tank.

    Not uncommon in CCM for middle of career guys to retire. That really sucks for you but since you were 16-0 I doubt you will have problems getting a half-way decent WR to replace him. That's why it's not a bad idea to buy retirement packages for caoch upgrades.

    Having to deal with the headache of the panthers backfield situation is a nightmare too. Like 90million locked up back there. In real life panthers have had rumors of considering cutting dwillz and taking the cap hit just to free up some. Uhg.

    I don't know about that. You probably ran him ragged last season, averaging 28 YPC and all.. :eek: :p

    But I know what you mean about having money locked up, I have considered dumping Sanchez but he has the Jets by the balls for $8M in guaranteed money, so he's gonna be our highest paid cheerleader next season :(

    Yes sir. With the XP upgrades their passing ratings are pretty much equal now, but Tebow has many more advantages to jump Sanchez on the depth chart. (Clutch Rating, Quick development, great running ratings, etc etc). So I'm trying to trade away Sanchez for a pick or something, so atleast I will get SOMETHING in return for paying him to NOT play.

    Only in NYC does a QB have a Pro Bowl season, lose only 2 games, and then gets benched haha.

    Yeah but the Jets will say anything to stay in the media spotlight. At the beginning of the year, weren't they saying that "Tebow even eats like a winner"

    I stopped paying any mind to the Jets in real life once they started believing their own hype :rolleyes:

    After 2010 they got too full of themselves and have been getting weekly beatings ever since.

    How does you not checking effect his decision to retire? It's not like you can talk him out of it.

    Yeah that is true mmorgan184. The weird thing is after the first off-season advance Smith hadn't retired yet. It was on the 2nd advance, so maybe people keep retiring as the off-season goes on?
