Anyone else tired of Smitty?

You aren't giving Delhomme enough credit. Pre-Tommy John he wasn't average at best.....your Smitty man love and AZ is clouding your judgement.

Smitty didn't make Delhomme....Delhomme's career high in yards and TDs both occured in 2004 WITHOUT Smith. Jake could play.

Lol There's no Smitty man love goin on here. I'd prefer he channeled some of that frustration into catching the balls that ARE thrown his way and not playing UFC wanna be over by the sidelines. Or better yet, instead of chewing out Cam, go light into the clown that's running this circus.

Maybe I was a little harsh on Delhomme but I used to cringe when he threw the ball. I remember many circus catches on horrible throws. And he did have Muhammad, Proehl and Goings stepped up in a big way that year.

Let's say a little above average

I know. I just found it a bit ironic.

Yes, I am getting sick of him and his retirement talk. Just retire already. This is Cam's team. Smitty wants to pick fights with everybody now it seems. You can see the frustration building, which is exactly the opposite of what you want in a veteran who is supposed to be a leader. You want calm, cool, collected, and focused with a positive disposition.

What is it Steve Smith? You see Cam's clothing line, his swag, his youth, his abilities, his charm, etc and feel a little envy? So now you're going to tell him to force you the ball and throw a fit when he doesn't? Cam is going to win with or without Steve.

Uh, no... I wish the rest of the team would follow his lead and set a physical tone like he does. IMO, you still don't see enough competitive nastiness in this team.

Believe me, getting slammed on your back and pinned by Smitty in the 1st quarter is a humbling experience... he's setting the "rules and regulations" early.

Rules Of Being a Steve Smith Fan.

1. Steve Smith does no wrong.....ever. If you think he did, you are not a fan.

2. If Steve Smith actually did something wrong, it is because he has heart and wants to win, or the teammates were sucking so it doesnt matter.

3. He can make a douche QB look good except for Clausen that guy didn't count.

4. Delhomme should give his lifetime savings to Smith.

5. If you are a leader Steve Smith, it is ok to berate under performing players.

6. Steve Smith is a first ballot Hall of Famer even though reality is he may not even get in.

How did that work out for him?

Over the past 10-12 years the Panthers have had one verifiable star and that is Smith.

Love him or loathe him his passing records speak for itself and he has caught more than a few critical balls to win playoff games and regular games while being double/triple teams with QBs, including this current one, whose accuracy puts in places to get his

back broken in half.

He wants to win and his method of going may be questionable sometimes but lets face it, it's a bruising physcial game, he is more like 5'7" than 5'10" tall and he does the absolute best he can with each and every snap.

He is double and triple teamed on almost every single play because in those 10-12 years the Panthers have FAILED to pair a complimentary receiver with him.

He gets the crap beat out of him.

He plays hurt.

People should use their heads and think about the hits he takes playing this game.

I watched him on a MNF game in Charlotte against Green Bay literally crawl, pulling himself by his hands from the right hash mark to the sideline with a broken lower leg because he didn't want to be taken off the field by a stretcher.

Most likely, he's probably the only weapon the Panthers have that other teams don't laugh at.

Two things to think about 1) I remember reading on ESPN the Magazine by an anon. NFL player how 50% of the league hates football and plays it for the money. Smith is not one of those. He wears his heart and physical courage on his sleeve. 2) he is human, not Superman and he doesn't pretend to be.

Give me Steve Smith any day of the week. Give him an accurate QB over his career and he would be in the hall of fame.
