Couple catches for about 36 yards, then Smitty will blow up a reverse for a TD for 65 yards. How's that sound? ;)

 

Here's hope'n. but, I just hope we win. I'm sure Smitty would agree. :D

I think Steve Smith probably is one of the top 5 receivers in the league over the last 12 years or so.  He's not the prototypical big receiver like Calvin Johnson or TO.  He's that undersized guy who can simply ball with the best of them.  As a pure athlete and a fierce competitor he fought for every yard every TD and he deserves due credit for all of that.

 

He's close to the HOF already, I think, especially when you consider that he's played his whole career for the Panthers and is our only shot at at future HOFer.  You have to think that when he becomes eligible, voters will recall that he had 2 seasons where he missed significant time and several seasons without a legit QB.  When he had a legit QB he was an absolute phenomenon.

 

Another Superbowl appearance to go along with 2 more seasons (I think he said he wants to retire after 2015) of above average numbers and I think he would be a lock.  No SB appearance then I think it becomes iffy, but not impossible.  Should he have another 1000 yard 8 TD season, I think that would be enough.

 

Fact is, the odds are not in his favor to get to another SB (even this has become a good team and a seeming contender) or to get another monster season.

 

He likely will maintain his current form for a few more years then retire.

 

Who knows, though, Smitty might make an awesome position coach after that, so who knows, maybe his next SB appearance is as the Panthers WR coach...

Sure you do....hand eye coordination doesn't remain a constant


Lol, he's old by NFL standards but he's certainly not to the point of decreased motor function.

You don't lose your ability to catch passes as you age. The dropped passes is just a minor concentration issue. Cam spreading the ball around is the reason Smith doesn't have a lot of yards this season.

 

This guy gets it
