Do you think this will/should be Smitty's last year as a Panther?

I really hate to say it but I think this will be Smitty's last year as a Panther. He has seen a huge decline in speed and getting separation and it is very clear hes just not the same player he was during Cam's rookie year and its only going to be worse next season when he is 35. Not only that but lets face it, yes Cam's play today was epic but he still doesnt have that touch and accuracy to complete passes to someone of Smitty's size, we need a true big bodied receiver to step up and grab Cam's passes that sail high. Smitty is better as a slot receiver with a extremely accurate QB like a Tom Brady that constantly threads the needle in tight spaces.

With Ginn being 28 and Lafell seeming to be breaking out and it looking very likely we draft a WR or a solid possibility we sign Nicks, does anyone else think this will be Smitty's last year as a Panther? Please dont flame me, I am in no way trying to be negative or bashing Smitty, its just obvious he isnt the same player.

No and it's up to Smith at this point.....if he can't compete....then I'm sure he hangs it up...but that hasn't happened yet.

nah, im sure he'll stay for his entire contract, he's still a great leader in a young/ less experienced recieving corps.

I see your point to an extent but I would say that even if Ginn emerges and we draft someone Smitty would still be an excellent number two at worst.  Despite his age he still has a lot left.  Even if he is not causing so many double teams he still commands respect in terms of the secondary accounting for him. 

 

Aside from this Smitty's will not hesitate to lay a lick on anyone.  He will most likely be sticking around for a while.

Steve has stated he wants to play 16 seasons over, & over, & over again the past few months. He will be here in 2014, 2015, & 2016. Big Cat will not let Gettleman or anyone else get rid of Steve.

Please, for the love of Allah, stop making threads. Go get laid. Seriously.

I would love to see his contract re-worked to better reflect the player he IS rather than the player that he WAS.  If we get a legit #1 WR in here, Smitty can still be a very good threat.  He just can't be that guy anymore while drawing the other team's best cover guy.

If Donald LaFell keeps it up, the transition will be smooth

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
