I think it's time to say... Steve Smith isn't elite anymore.

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.


QB play wasn't good the 1st 2 weeks either.

You're right. And somehow he still managed to do well. Sounds like a washed up POS to me.

He's still elite, we obviously have been dead last in passing yds. And it's been rough in the passing game for a while here, just image if we were geared for passing instead of running the ball? Like a Peyton Manning style offense, he would put up 2,000 yds a season easily in my opinion.

Still one of the most explosive, and motivated players in the sport... and he will stay that way until he's unable to play anymore.

Smith literally told the press he wanted to be like this (aka a slot receiver). Imagine how ass kicking our passing game will be next year if Gettis & LaFell continue to improve with Smith in the slot

I think you are making the same mistake many did when they said the same thing about Matt after the first 2 games.

While Smith is no doubt getting older and his abilities will slow down, right now, we've only seen one game with Smith back after his ankle sprain, and it's just way to damn early to be saying stuff like this.

Wait at least 3-4 games and let him get into a rhythm before making such big statements.

If we start seeing people doubling Gettis and leaving Smith in single coverage and still low production, I think we can say he's lost several steps... but it's waaaaay too early to say that.

If he garners a double team and Gettis & Lafell keep beating people and getting open, does it really matter if Smith only has 50 yards a game for the rest of the season...?

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


So you fail.


Why can't the retards around here see this?

This coming from the guy that tells us to watch a "real NFL qb" in Jake Locker. I think i'll pass.
