It is pretty clear he won't be....you think he is gonna land higher than Steve Youn and company?

Only "Panther" on the list is Reggie White and most fans outside Carolina probably don't eve remember him finishing up here

Come on now, don't be a homer. Honestly Smith would have a tough time being considered at top 20 all time reciever, let alone a top 100 all time player. Until he gets at least 1 ring, he will never sniff that list.
