Put Steve Smith with Montana and Young and see what he can do.

Wes Welker puts up better numbers than Smith, Fitzgerald and other high class wideouts yearly. But do you think he's actually better than them? Because you know he's not.

Heaven forbid a Panther fan fawn over a player. Some contrarian yahoo has to come along to pee on the parade.

Until Cam came along, Smitty never had an elite QB. Jake was good for a couple years, but no where near good enough to fulfill Smitty's potential. Saying Smitty is one of the best WRs of all time is not a stretch. His numbers match up well. Except the TDs. He has a very real chance to finish his career in the top ten. Not bad from a guy playing with basically second teir QBs.

Put Smitty in Rice's place and who knows what he could have put together. All I know is his numbers would be far better than what he has from playing with our QB pool.

Conversely, put Rice in Smitty's place and his numbers would plummet.

Having a HOF QB is a WRs best friend. Smitty never had that luxury.

I disagree with the Delhomme hate...people always want to knock Delhomme when on there Steve Smith is the greatest man ever born soapbox.

Pre Tommy John Jake was a dang good QB. His best year individually in the NFL was the one year he didn't play with Smith....yet some act as Smith made him not a bum.

Jake's style was a good fit for Smith.

I agree that Jake was a good QB for a while but I don't think his style ever changed. When he lost the arm he couldn't gamble like he did before and it revealed his flaws as a QB. He had some of his best games when Smith wasn't around because he had to balance himself and the offense. I still don't think he was ever a top 5 guy throughout his career except for maybe a season or two. Smitty was targeted a lot and he did have a good PA strategy going when we had a run game but he didn't have a legit #2 WR or a very creative offensive mind for a long time.
