I mean, look at the QB problems we had before Cam. The demise of Delhomme, the underachiever in Matt Moore, the worst QB in Panthers history with Clausen, the horrible offensive coordinator in Jeff Davidson etc. Truth be told-- Steve should have hit 10,000 yards two seasons ago. Even though Steve is still a force now, it's a matter of time until father time catches up with him. So he could end his career with respectable career stats(probably not spectacular) without any HOF consideration.

Anyone ever wonder what could have been? I appreciate Steve's loyalty in staying here the remainder of his career, even though he had people around the league telling him to leave and Chris Harris/Peppers trying to recruit him to Chicago, he still stayed here.

Without Carolina he might still be a punt returner today

wasted? There is no telling what would have happened to Smitty elsewhere, while Delhomme isn't Peyton he isn't Ryan Leaf. Who knows if Smitty would have ever even had any chance if he was on the lowly Browns.


If you think his career is a waste you have exceedingly high expectations.

Hey, it's never a bad time to give props to what is arguably the greastest Panther of all time. I mean, how many threads does it take until Steve is adored properly?

I don't think he wasted his career. Careers are what they are. I will say that if he finishes off with a flourish. He will get all the accolades he deserves. Maybe voters will take into consideration that even with all his stats, he only played a handfull of years with an elite QB. Impressive career? I say yes. HOFer. I say, I wish I had a vote.

Umm... No


Steve smith is quite possibly the greatest receiver I have ever had the privilege of watching his entire career. He had his problems of course but no matter the obstacle or terrible offense he was a part of his star still shined bright. Steve smith and waste should never appear in the same conversation. There is but one 89 and he should be respected and honored as the greatest panther of all time.

Steve has been lucky enough to even play in a SB, players like Barry Sanders never had that opportunity.
