Smith rules, but if I know Smith, and I feel the same way, records obtained in a loss are bittersweet and really meh.
Smith wants a ring, not another record. He could have a thousand of these, and they will all keep him below all other receivers much less impressive than him because of our lack of a Super Bowl ring. Only a Super Bowl win, will give Steve Smith justice as far as his placement in the NFL, and he plays almost every damn game like he deserves to be in one.
Shame if this receiver retires without one. I'm sure I'm going to catch a lot of flack, but I don't believe in this team's Super Bowl chances anymore and as a Steve Smith fan, not speaking as a Panthers fan, I hope he asks for a trade before he retires if we don't get our poo together. In the end he has played at a completely different level than most of our team as a whole for most of his career. He deserves to have an elite QB throw him the ball for at least one year of his career and I'd be watching every game he plays in.
The way I see it, he's paid his dues to me as a Panthers fan. No hard feelings if he wants to try and make a name for himself before his career is over. Not like he hasn't given us every ounce of energy. He's been very loyal to the Panthers for the caliber of receiver he is.
Congrats Steve Smith

You appear to have competition up and coming, TRD.

Hah. I don't compete, that would require work. I just do.
Naw, they need to understand the game a little more to be competition.

You guys love using this phrase a lot don't you? You really expect Cam to connect with Stevie everytime don't you?
It's a lot easier to play a game of football from your couch than it does actually playing the game...just saying.
I don't expect him to hit Smitty everytime, but I do expect him to go through his reads and hit the open receiver, whether that be Smith, LaFell or Legatron. If that makes me ignorant, then I suppose I'm a very ignorant dude.
