(By Tom Sorensen, tsorensen@charlotteobserver.com) Steve Smith is a competitor. You can tell because after Carolina's first drive of the fourth quarter Sunday, a drive that ended with a punt, he came to the sideline and slowly shook his head. He grabbed a cup of Gatorade. He sat on a long bench. He was pensive. He was angry. He was alone. p/At the time, Smith had as many receptions as you did, fewer if you threw the ball around when you tailgated.

I'll shed a tear if Smith got traded

But to be honest with you, as sad as it may sound, Im not going to disagree with this. You look at this team and just to yourself... why not

Sad to be a Panthers fan right now

I wouldn't mind it. Steve gave his heart to the Panthers, and if they ever gave two flips for him...they'd send him somewhere he can go to the SB or at least try.

Im in the same boat with you. As much as I have enjoyed Smitty in Carolina, I would like to see him win a ring. Not gonna happen here in our near future.

Sorenson just hit a new low in reporting. There is a solution here and it is simple. Throw the damn ball to Smith and let him do his thing. He wasn't unhappy the past 2 weeks when Moore looked for him and hit him for a TD each game. Truth is Smitty expereinced what we all saw. Smitty was open on several occasions and Clausen was already checking down for a 3 yard gain before the play was fuly developed. Unless Clausen actually throws the ball down the field and finds a way to get it to Smitty, this won't be the last temper tantrum. Clausen needs Smitty and needs to find a way to get him ball. Otherwise this really will be David Carr part 2.

You know what? I like Smitty so much, I wouldn't mind him going somewhere else and adding to his stats to end out his career. Unless the FO can promise that THEY'LL play to win next season, and stop pretending this is college where you groom a team of kids, I'd rather Steve go elsewhere. I feel sorry for him.

Because now he is on the verge of damaging a young QB. That's a bit more important than punching a hack of a DB in the face. He needs to win, let him go some where and win.
