Is it time to break up Panthers, trade Smith?

could you imagine smitty getting traded, then coming back and lighting it up against us? i would hide in a hole for a month. That would be the ultimate "epic fail"

we would not win a game this season if we traded Smith(unless we face a team resting their starters at the end of the season, and even then..)

plus, he's 31. we'd be lucky to get a 2nd round pick for him. Cardinals only got a 3rd and 4th round pick for Boldin, just to put into perspective how valuable receivers are.

he should NOT be traded.

I dont see us winning a game WITH him right now.. Who could we beat?

If he demands a trade I could understand why and couldn't be mad at him. I hope this never happens.

Should trade sorenson and fouler for a back of gum and a box of crayons.

No way do you trade Smith. The thing that is frustrating me the most is that even though our line has been shitty and everyone is off q it seems like we are just one or two plays away from clicking. 1 dropped pass away, one dropped INT away. The poo ridiculous, we've got the talent to succeed but the direction is not there.

Trading Smith would be retarded. He is the only receiver we have.

Agreed, one thing that is not happening is that the ball is just not bouncing our way, figuratively speaking...

Man screw that, Steve will retire a Panther, the Panthers will be good again give the reciever a year to develop... even with a new reciever this year was a lost cause... Smitty knew that too.

This has less to do with the Panthers needing to throw the ball to Smitty more, and more to do with the team trading away all of it's veteran leadership for some sort of project! If you want to go younger and build for the future... GREAT! BUT guys like Steve only have so much time left, so why make him suffer through this. You got rid of Jake because you wanted to go younger, right? Julius too? So why does Steve had to suffer through it.

The guy has given Carolina his heart and soul and as much as it would pain me to see him leave, he deserves it.

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.

Smiths frustration has probably been building since the start of the year and Clausen cant throw the ball down field when he does not have the time.
