After hearing Steve Smith interviewed a couple of times recently he does not sound like the Steve Smith we all know and love(or not!). Anyone else think maybe he has mentally checked out of this thing??

I'm sure he's frustrated. He was already convinced once to stick it out through a rebuilding effort with Cam and Rivera. I'm not sure if he has the desire to go through another one with another coach and/or another new offense. I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if he retired after the season. Definitely couldn't blame the guy.

I agree, I think he has had enough of this team.

If he has I want him to walk his ass up to Cam and apologize him for that bullshit rant in front of everyone during the Giants game. I love Smitty to death but I despise his propensity to talk up his maturity act when things are going well and then going back into a shell when things aren't. It's hypocritical, and between him and Cam at least Cam took his chewing out like a man.

I love Smitty but Smitty is all about Smitty. A tiger doesn't change his stripes.

I hate to say this - but I hope the Panthers trade him. I love Smitty and he has been probably my favorite Panther the past decade but I want to see him win. He's done so much for this team, individually winning countless games for the team. He deserves a shot at a title. Trade him to Houston.

It's time to turn the page on a lot of our players. I wish things could've been different this year for 89 and everyone else

Like Peppers leaving...it may be time to move forward to the next chapter

89's time may be soon. He had one hell of a career here. Unlike Peppers, Smith actually wanted to be here in the end

He is not really a cliche guy, but that latest interview he did with Mike Craft was one big cliche. I think he realizes he is part of ANOTHER lost season and the light at the end of the tunnel just got pushed further down the tracks.

I believe that is funny because everybody on here was all way to go Smitty. You are right, he is the opposite of what everybody is saying they want from Cam. He celebrates after routine plays, argues with teammates, gets dumb penalties, and is a loose cannon. I loved that about him, but it really did seem like a holier than thou move in that game and the week following it.
