Based on what? His solid performances the first two weeks before our QB play went to hell and he got hurt? His first week back from that injury? It's entirely too early to say that Smith isn't elite.

He could still be elite. The Panthers offense is prohibiting him from being elite.


So you fail.

I can accept that he's not what he once was. No longer elite, though? Not sure I buy that.

He's suffered as much from lack of a complementary threat as anything (plus Delhomme's 2009 nosedive).

Yes, he's older, and yes, he's gotten injury prone. But if I'm an opposing DC, I'm still putting a lot of time into preparing for him.

I don't understand how someone can come back from a high ankle sprain in 3 weeks and not have a hundred yard game...

Steve Smith floor is Hines Ward.

He'll contribute for a good long while.
