Hate to say it because I love 89, but he's not even the same player as last year. Steve is one of the most competitive players I've ever seen and has the fire to boot. But time is starting to take its toll. Still want him on the team, but I realize he isn't going to be around in 2 more years. We need to find a new #1 and move Smitty to slot.

We'll see if he starts trying to fight with Charles Tillman

He use to be competitive. Now I see him cutting off routes and afraid to take a big hit. That was really his whole game and without it, he is just an average player.

On the last possession of the Dallas game, after Cam was sacked (but we still had time for one more play) I noticed the whole offense sprinting back to the line of scrimmage, but Steve was just jogging back like he'd already given up. Granted, it was a one in a million shot at that point, but it's one of the signs that he may have already "checked out" this season.

I love 89 and what he's done for the origanization, but all good things must come to and end and it may be best for both sides to just move on at this point. I'd be very happy to see him get a ring with another team if it came to that, as long as it's not with anyone in the NFCS. Or Dallas. Or Green Bay.

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

Smitty is a great WR and a baby sometimes too

Im starting to think Smitty is the reason Delhomme passed it his way all the time and why we have never established a 2nd WR. We heard about the pull smitty with JR. Maybe that is why he was mad after the last game? Lafell got a TD and Cam got some other receivers in the game. There is no other reason why Cam only throws to 89..

It may be best for Smith to hang it up. He just seems have more anger then love for the game lately.

Yeah... I saw that also, the Smitty just jogging back taking his time. It kind of pissed me off.

Maybe it is time to move on from Smitty. This is one where I will trust whomever is making the decisions. Of course one of the problems was another Hurney disaster and that was to ever get any other WR's worth a damn on this roster. I was hoping Smitty could be part of the turnaround here in Charlotte, and we eventually get a new #1 and he could move to the slot and do really well there.

If this team is really going to rebuild and have the team become Cams, maybe a total purge of the roster of the guys who have been here for so long needs to happen. We all want Cam to lead, and so do the players but how many 23 yr olds walk into a locker room and just start telling 5, 7 , 10yr Vets how it going to be, and how many of them really want that or would listen.

I am really starting to think and fall in the camp the real mistake was keeping Hurney, not bringing in a new GM and not totally purging the roster when we drafted Cam.

before the season, I would have thought there was less than a 20% chance Smitty would retire after this season. Now I'd put it at about 60% chance. Can't blame him for not wanting to undergo yet ANOTHER regime change. If we turn things around and make a run this season maybe....

Also I don't think Smith has interest in being traded/keep playing elsewhere outside Carolina. His family is cemented in Charlotte, and if anything, his attitude has become far more family oriented.
