NFL fans blast former WR for claiming Michael Jackson would circle Elvis Presley

Former NFL wide receiver Torrey Smith caused quite a stir on social media with his latest post. The former Baltimore Ravens wideout took to his Twitter account and suggested that Elvin Presley is the most overrated entertainer in history.

The artist Smith himself considers the best, and the one who would go around “The King” is Michael Jackson. There is a great debate as to who is the better of the two, each an icon of their generation.

As expected, when Smith sent this tweet, fans were quick to jump on it. A fan named Alex called on everyone to ignore Smith’s stupidity.

“Please ignore this stupidity.”

@TorreySmithWR I will always be a Torrey Smith fan but this take is crazy. Like saying Lamar could circle around Johnny U. What’s the point?

@TorreySmithWR I’m a huge MJ guy but this is a really bad take. Elvis’ impact on rock and roll and culture has been enormous. Without Elvis (and the others of course), there is no GM.

@TorreySmithWR I love you Torrey but that’s not it. Elvis started singing in the late 50s and 60s, Michael only went solo in the late 70s. They are two different musical eras, you can’t compare them apples to apples 🤷‍ ♂️ no need to demolish one to build the other

@TorreySmithWR MJ was amazing but Elvis was a groundbreaking artist most of America had never seen before.

@TorreySmithWR Terrible catch. Elvis is King 👑 rappers and pop icons have all taken pieces of Elvis and to this day still sample his music. He kicked down doors 🚪 so everyone could creatively walk through #MicDrop

@TorreySmithWR Come on Torrey, I won’t take it from you MJ was a global superstar!! He was an absolute legend. Elvis was in a completely different time. He revolutionized the music of his time. Terrible take to say that he was the most overrated artist.

@TorreySmithWR Seriously? You must be joking. Take a look at his performance in the 50s. He was literally years ahead of his time. A musician from the 60s performing in the 50s. His backing vocalists sounded like Big Band singers. Certainly not. Totally ahead of its time.

The NFL’s offseason has been one for the ages

This offseason has been wild for the NFL.
This offseason has been wild for the NFL.

The offseason had just about everything. Players are getting big deals, others have resisted mini camp, demanded trades, and some have gotten into trouble.

Tyreek Hill was one of the receivers to pick up “the sack” as he traded Kansas City for Miami in a $120 million deal. Deebo Samuel has requested a trade, although nothing has been done yet. Baker Mayfield finally emerged from his Cleveland nightmare and other high-profile players such as Von Miller signed elsewhere.

Then there are the Deshaun Watson civil lawsuits. With the Browns quarterback settling 20 of his 24 civil lawsuits, fans are now waiting to see what his NFL punishment will be.

Some want him gone for the whole season, while others think half the season is fair. Where it lands, no one knows, but we should find out sooner rather than later. Jimmy Garoppolo is still a 49er, which seemed impossible two months ago. His playing future is next to take center stage following Mayfield’s move to the Carolina Panthers.

The NFL is the largest sports organization on the planet. Looking at this offseason, the regular season has some catching up to do when it comes to newsworthy headlines.
