Also, Smitty has always been feisty, so why would I get fed up with it now?

I think the offense we run hurts everyone's production. The read option has sucked the life force out of our offense.
F you Chud and your bs gimmick trickery playbook
Exactly. As to Smitty, he's like one of those birds you send into the mine to see if there is a buildup of dangerous gasses. When Smitty plays like he has the last few weeks, it is just like the bird passing out...an indicator of deeper problems more than an indictment of Smitty (or the bird for that matter).
The offense has no confidence in what they are being asked to do.

The Return of Bad Steve Smith?After a renaissance season filled with big stats and good vibes from Newton’s arrival, Steve Smith (-2.2) somewhat distanced himself from the old stories of a malcontent receiver who punched teammates at practice and wanted a trade out of town. However, his performance the last few weeks makes us wonder if Bad Steve Smith is once again starting to rear his ugly head. Whether it be frustration over his own performance or the team’s record, Smith once again seemed more interested in getting into wrestling matches with cornerbacks than catching the targets sent his way. Richard Shermanand Brandon Brownerperhaps saw how Smith responded to the physical style of Corey Webster and Dunta Robinson in weeks prior, and effectively goaded him into foolish mistakes. With 1:46 left in the first half, Sherman jabbed Smith at the line, and the receiver responded by charging into him while a nearby pass fell incomplete. At the 8:08 mark of the third quarter, Smith simply grabbed Sherman at the line and wrestled him to the ground, incurring a holding penalty. All these extracurricular activities could explain Smith’s two drops and four catches on 13 targets. With his -2.2 penalty grade on the season, teams know that they can easily instigate Smith into immature mistakes. You’d think a 12-year veteran would have learned better by now.
He's been terrible.
