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

Ginns play will help Smitty move and not have to be the #1 option. seems like it can help extend his career more than end it.

This is by far the worst thread I have read in months... I can remember back in 08/09 I was considered the worst poster on this forum. Most people would probably refer to that as "the good ol days" now.


I don't even actually blame you.. This is the norm now....
