I met Steve Smith and his family in the Bobcats team store. Very nice people. Steve looks at some Jordans but mainly just stood in one spot and watched the basketball game on the tv. His wife and 2 sons were shopping in my section so I helped them buy some jerseys and stuff. Steve was nice but got frustrated with how long it was taking them to shop. I think it was because it was close to near the end of the game and he new the team store was about to get a big time rush and he didn't want to get hounded by crazy fans.

Yeah, bc saying Steve Smith isn't better than Jerry FREAKING Rice is such an anti Smith view.

Sorry, when homerism gets taken to absurd levels it must be called out. No point nitpicking saying one does x better....Rice was hands down better overall. I am sure Jerry had nothing to do with his QBs success huh


Not to instigate here, but c'mon man. You know this isn't just about someone saying Steve Smith is better than Jerry Rice. Take Jerry rice out of this comment and insert wide receiver x y or z and you would come swooping in to knock on Steve. It's no secret, we have all seen it. While I agree that Jerry Rice is the greatest WR to ever lace up his cleats, there is no reason to stomp on most fans favorite player around here. It's not cool. If you don't like Steve then fine, there are a lot of us that do. Show a little class and let us enjoy the last couple seasons of the greatest Carolina Panther of all time.

Claiming he is better than Rice is just something you can't claim. Saying it isn't so...isn't stomping on Steve Smith. It isn't being uncool or classless. It's just reality.

Let him be the GOAT in Pantherland. Claiming he is better than Rice just silly and shouldn't occur. It's going full retard.

Saying Rice is the GOAT...doesn't keep you, me or the Easter bunny from enjoying what he has done.

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.
