Have a nice life, Rod

He should be possibly considered but he wont get in for years and years down the line. He was solid for them for so long.

Vey good player, but I don't think he's HOF material.

Really good player, and I'm glad he's no longer playing against us.

I once turned a wife-beater into a homemade Rod Smith jersey.

Good riddance. One of the less hated donks. Glad he is gone so that says something about the man.

Standing ovation from me. A blue collar guy that did what it took. Hats off to a great career.

He was a good player, and a great guy...i honestly think he mightve had a soft spot for KC. he said his favorite part of playing against the chiefs, was hearing 80,000 fans yell CHIEFS!! at the end of the national anthem. of all the Donks, he was probably my favorite...between, him and Sharpe anyways.

Why are the words "great" and "bronco" in the title of this thread? Oxymoron sir.

I have a lot of respect for Rod Smith. The guy always brought his "A" game against us and made some amazing catches over the years. I never remember seeing the guy whine or throw his arms in the air demanding a PI call like Ed Mccaffrey and he wasn't a roided up loudmouth like Shannon Sharpe. Rod always showed up and played hard.

Glad to see him gone. I respect him alot, but hate him about as much as any Bronco ever.

He slayed us.

Didn't he smack his wife around? Hard for me to respect anyone for anything that does that to a woman.

Does no one remember that Rod Smith beat his baby mama like she stole something? She even took back her story and claimed she lied, and they still went forward with the charges without her because of the physical evidence. He had to cop a plea.

He was a good player, but save the class talk.

He always seemed to have our number, that's for sure. I wonder if he'll give it back now.

He accepted responsibility for the verbal abuse charges on national TV, talked about how he learned to control his anger and tried to be an example for others in his situation.

It was wrong what he did, but I think putting himself out there on national TV says a lot about his character, don't you?

He greased up and juked her. Then, as she was attempting to regain her balance, he went for her knees from behind.

I guess an apology was in order.

Quality ^

He was one of the classier Donkeys, if such a thing even exists. Not HOF worthy in my opinion, glorified possession receiver.

For the record, I would truly never wish a VD on anyone, no matter how dirty stinking rotten Donk stained they were.

Go the well, Dirty Donk.

Its great he accepted responsibility for the verbal abuse charge he pled to. But how about accepting responsibility for beating her up? Did he ever once admit to hitting her? He copped a plea, which means he wanted to avoid a trial. With his wife/GF recanting her story, there was zero chance he would have been convicted unless there was proof of the assault apart from her word.

He also talked out of both sides of his mouth, making little comments about how there are battered womens shelters but no shelters for men. As if it was him who was the abused one.

It does say a lot about his character, just not in a good way.

I don't know. Good point.

Football alone, Rod was everything you could ask for. He never took a day for granted in the business, never missed a day in the offseason, and earned everything in football through blood, sweat and tears.

Off the field, I never cared for him that much. He was kind of a jerk.
