One thing is for certain. (Well like 98%) If he goes, Green is the pick.

If Smith does stay, there's a good possibility it's in a reduced role, perhaps as a number three. And honestly, that might be for the best.

Much as we all may like him, objectively speaking, he isn't what he once was.

(and basing plans for the season on the idea that he will be is probably a mistake)

I do not believe this to be true.

I think if Smith is gone, then the Panthers intend to draft Newton or Gabbert, both of which would be a huge mistake. Smith will not WASTE another season playing with a rookie QB and I don't blame him. If they don't find a veteran QB, then Smith is gone, but not because the Panthers don't want him, but because he's already wasted one season with a rookie QB and he only has a few seasons left.

Really?

Are you guys all on crack?

Smith had a rookie QB throwing side armed floaters last season and now he's done? He had 1000 yards with a beat down Delhomme in 2009. He is only 31. He has atleast 2-4 more 1000 yard seasons in him.

I doubt that FA will resume before the draft.

I don't think Smith wanting out or not has anything to do with who we draft. It's going to have more to do with how camp goes and what he sees there I think... assuming there is a camp

I want him to stay but I'll understand if he wants to go to a contender. As long as it isn't the Pats.

I don't want him going to a NFC South team, or a team we play often. It was bad enough when we played the Bears and Peppers posed after a pick at BOA while our Panthers were being raped. One fan actually said "the only way this could be worse is if a meteorite hit BOA." Well Smith is that meteorite if he goes to our competition in the south. Here's hoping he heads out west, maybe back to Cali.

If Smith has an incentive-laden contract, then he will certainly demand and get a trade. He's losing major money by not producing yards and TDs.
