RB Emmitt Smith is not calling it a career -- not yet. After a disappointing first season with the Cardinals, the 34 year old Smith told ESPN's Jim Gray on Wednesday night that he intends to honor his contract and play another season in Arizona.

It's not going to be a great way to finish either way.

He doesn't get enough money plugging a phone number with ALF? I wouldn't bother playing another season if I were him, unless he's in it for the best season ticket seats out there. If that were the case though, why the Cardinals? :-?

As if last year wasnt bad enough, he has to prolong the agony and go for one more.

This is one of the worst sporting decisions ive seen any pro make.

Yea just another example of a great player holding on for too long.
Coupla others:
Rice - should have retired before this year, love the guy to death but he definetly should come back for one more.
MJ - i have more respect for MJ than any other athlete but the Wizards comeback was just ill-advised
Hakeem - killed my Raptors cap

Take a leaf out of Barry Sanders book and retire as the best in the league. Strange Barry (apart from Jerry) is probably the only guy that could have pulled it off
