Decline does not equate to average.

Hard to acknowledge this for my favorite Panther of all-time, but he is not very good anymore. I don't ever remember him having this many drops in a three-season span as he has had just this season so far. Very disappointing.

 

 

 

he had an off night.......I am sure there has been a night where your girl didnt get hers........assuming you have one. off nights happen....89 always catches in traffic. so do me a favor and understand the bottom line

Reactionary thread. I don't think that drops are something that get worse with age. It doesn't make any sense for there to be a correlation between Steve dropping the ball and him being older. What is the rationale there? I think he's just had some moments when he wasn't in the game mentally and we're looking at a lot of coincidence in terms of him dropping catchable passes. I think he's putting too much pressure on himself to produce like he did when he was 25. He's evolving, not becoming useless. He's still far and away our best bet.

 

If you want to see a very, very average NFL wide receiver then look no further than a guy like Domenik Hixon. That's average. Smith is still damn good. He'd be a starter on most any team in the league.

We played a very good defense today and won.  Smiity may not have all the tools he use to have , but his heart and determination is that of a prize fighter.

He may have been knocked down several times, but he got back up and made plays that kept the chains moving when we needed a veteran to step up.

I wonder what Smitty said to Lafell on the sideline that set Lafell off.  Dude looked legit pissed.

I think Lafell was trying to pump up Smitty more than yelling at him. If Lafell was really going to yell back I don't think it would have ended well.
