We need to find his replacement during the off-season top priority.


We've only had four years to find him a solid #2 to play with. I'm sure we'll get right on this.  :sleep:


He's still a workhorse, still putting his body on the line and making big time blocks, etc but I do agree the days of Steve with that cut away speed who would burst away from his defender may be a thing of the past.

Smitty is still in the top 15 WRs, Cam was not very accurate against SF.

This was the OP submitted while losing after a disappointing drop by Smitty during the game.... Textbook reactionary thread..... Followed by furious backpedaling.... He actually said Smitty has dropped more through the last nine games than any three year stretch COMBINED. Just calling it what it is. It's OK.... People overreact. Just admit it.


Go look up his stats...  I'll guarantee he has more drops this season than he ever has in any one season before.


I'm just stating the obvious.  Why come in to this thread and not discuss the issue at hand, but rather attack the person that brought it up? Taking it personal?  I didn't backpedal...  I just expounded on what the initial post said in my subsequent posts.  It was reactionary in regards to his performance throughout the season, the multiple drops he had in key situations early on in the game is just what allowed me a talking point to discuss it.

Smitty is more than a receiver. He is the heart of this team. If you want to take the backbone out of this team, yeah kick him to the curb.


I once saw Jerry Rice miss a few balls.

There are a lot of delusional fans in this thread.  It's very obvious that Smitty is average now.  However, cutting him would be STUPID.  I don't think anybody in their right mind would think this team is better without Steve Smith this season and next.  But he is not a game breaker anymore.  He can't be the #1 option next season.

He can clearly still play. The problem is Cam is just like any other running QB - he ain't a passer.


Every single team's fans in the league whine about how their receivers drop too many balls. Trust me. Dropped passes are the most irrelevant thing in football because all receivers do it.
