I don't have a link (and i didn't see this as a topic anywhere else) but hall of fame NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice was just on ESPN ranking the top five wide receivers playing the game today. Steve Smith was the first one on the countdown at number five.

He played highlights of Smith's across-the-middle catch against the Bears to highlight his YAC ability, and then a deep out against the Vikings to demonstrate his ability to elevate for the ball, and lastly his first TD against the Cardinals to display his ability to burn NFL secondaries even in his early thirties. A graphic displayed receiving yards ranking him up there with Ochocinco and Donald Driver (and Randy Moss a catchable big name roughly four thousand yards ahead of him.)

Roddy White was number four, which was barf, but it was cool to see 89 getting some love from the national media.

Hate to say it but Roddy White is a beast. Reppin' James Island.

I'm glad Smith is gettin some national love, not enough people know the greatness. I remember that hubbub a few years ago when people were saying the Giant's Steve Smith was 'the real steve smith'. What hogwash

Words cannot do Smitty's game justice...his attitude matched with intensity and ability make him a guy I'd take over anyone atm minus Calvin and Fitz

Yeah, Roddy White is a beast.....in the regular season. He's nowhere to be found during the postseason.

Roddy is a beast. We as Panther fans just hate him for where he plays. We see the drops, we see the lackadasicle (sp) play. So when he gets love, we hate it. If he had played his whole career at full speed. He could be one of the best ever. Unfullfilled talent.

And on the flip side. We have a player that has been a conerstone for as long as we can all remember. A player that worked and played like it was him against the world. Who is in the discussion of the games best. Two players with opposite emotional connections. Smitty deserves the accolades. He has earned them.

I used to hate the Falcons as much as the rest of you, back before the Saint's learned how to win games.

Steve is a HOF talent. Roddy is just a very good player.

i'd take smitty over roddy any day. smith just pulls it out more. roddy might be more "gifted" but smitty makes things happen that roddy just doesn't.

Best in the league, bros.

Listen, you can categorize him with stats and numbers, and theorize his ranking among the other WR's by looking at quarterbacks, injuries, etc. But when it comes down to it, Smitty plays with more fire, dedication, confidence, and will than any other WR I have ever seen. Match that with his natural ability and talent, and he soars above all other WR's in the league. Are there other WR's that are more talented (faster, taller, better hands, etc...)? Yes. Are there WR's with better stats? Yes.

But Smitty combines all facets of ability and personality into being one hell of a football player. The guy is what, 32, and he just put up a 1000+ yard season, with no real signs of slowing down. The guy is just amazing.
