I was at the home opener in 08 when we played Houston and got trounced. This was the game where Smitty had that meaningless, ridiculous touchdown spinning and breaking tackles. This team still needs that.
How will you remember #89?

Come September, a team that I won't recognize will take the field at BOA wearing the uniform of the team I've been watching since they were created.
It's gonna be a really odd feeling.

Never giving up.
Another one was his KR or PR for a TD against the Seahawks in the NFC championship game.

Steve Smith will be remembered by every football fan--not just Panthers fan--as the fierce competitor that he always was. Steve put the electric in Carolina's electric blue. He never gave up, never said die, and loved to be doubted if for no other reason than to prove you wrong. I could say he gave his all in every play of every game (practice, too), but feel that I'd be selling him short. At his best there was no one better, at his worst he was still better than most.
This sounds way more like a eulogy than I intended. The guy's not dead, simply another victim of the ruthless business that is professional sports.

Hopefully, with a statue of him next to that of Sam Mills in front of BOA Stadium

50% that broken arm td, 50% that broken face ken lucas
that td was cool as heck but on the other hand ken lucas seems like a p cool dude who didn't deserve to be sucker punched. he's complicated and polarizing outside of this fan base and i can totally understand why fans of other teams both love and hate the poo out of him.
for the record, i think he's hall of fame material

Ask me in another year. For right now, all I'm going to remember is Smitty being treated with something bordering on blasphemy at worst and akin to near apathy at best before he was summarily advised that we don't want or need his services any longer.
Is it politically correct or practical from a what-is-best-for-the-franchise sense? Right now, I don't give a poo.
