2010 Season
2010 was Smith's worst season as a starter since 2002. Although he led the team in both receptions and receiving yards, he only managed 46 catches for 554 yards. In addition, he only caught two touchdown passes, 1 fewer than rookie David Gettis. Smith's low numbers were due to the total lack of team offense behind rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. The Panthers finished last in most offensive categories and with a 2–14 record, which was the worst in the 2010 season, securing the 1st overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Smith's dissatisfaction led to widespread rumors amongst the Panther's fan base that the star receiver wanted to be traded from the team for the 2011 season.


I don't even know where to begin with this.....

Why are you citing Wikipedia. Were you not watching the Panthers in 2010? I was, the whole team was awful. Jimmy fugin Clausen man....

Skills competition is more entertaining anyway, I'd rather see guys out there having fun, versus just going through the motions in a meaningless game.

I'm concerned that we have to make all these excuses for a guy who's being touted as a possible savior to our receiving corps.

I knew we were doing good, but damn. What a difference a year can make. Get Gano a new contract.

I don't understand how anyone can talk about and acknowledge him not giving full effort, yet still want him to join our team. That's a mindset and culture that we've been trying to change with this franchise for years now.

You don't double dip on one position when you have 5 damn picks. That's the reason why we fell on offense further than we rose on defense.


Well, I've got bad news for you, we did, and it isn't changing. No matter how much you type.


Drafting Kawaan Short in the second round was not why we fell in the playoffs, doing a piss poor job in the red zone was.

You can go with who you want, but we aren't playing anymore and it's largely because he failed to put offensive talent on the field.


Your proving my point


How incredibly easy it is to say what we could or should have done after the draft and the season is over.


Yes, I was one of those wanting more help on the OL, and of course I wanted a legit WR. But it wasn't going to happen all in one offseason. By the way, who expected us to turn around, and win the division, and get a first round bye in the playoffs? Did you? I didn't.


Our offensive woes to close the season were a big part due to poor execution, and play calls.


As for your "point", I'm not even going to argue with you because Star, and Short were the right picks. Get over it.


Gettleman will be addressing the offense this offseason, and evaluating who we have. Let him work.

But maybe we could get him at a good price.. I know it wouldnt be cheap, but considering that he is not coming off of a great year and the fact that he may really want to come home..he might get paid like a low end #1 or might be a steal for whatever he ends up getting. who knows what could be done to make something like that work?

We have all wanted better WRs. We have been saying it forever now.. Steve is not getting younger, and our offense needs most of the attention this offseason, so its easy to see why everyone is questioning a move like this.. Ive watched Nicks look dominant before, and it would suck to miss out if he regained form with a fresh start...especially if Gettleman still has reason to believe in his abilities.

Ultimately, Nicks or no Nicks, the wide receiver position is going to have to be solved via the draft. Hurney couldn't do it, let's hope Gettleman can.

I am reading the same thread...Just not going through every page.

This seems different from what you were saying before.. You never really acknowledged his potential. I also think we are too cap challenged to get him, even though I would be excited if we found a way to make it work, and knowing that Gettleman believes in him.

Would you be upset if we signed him and it wasnt a "cheap" contract?

I've never said he isn't talented.

Yes, I would be upset in that case. We have limited cap room, and it only gets worse in the next few years with contracts like Stewart's. If we were going to mortgage our salary cap for a receiver I would rather he not have question marks about his health and team loyalty.

Who else are we going to get realistically that would be so much drastically better?

Shore up our OL, run the damn football, get some receivers, and let Cam be a quarterback.

Not with our red zone woes. Rivera better be on Shula's ass about improving our offense inside the 20.

Let's be honest Nicks having a not so good season was the best thing that could happen for us.

On another note I can't trust Nicks on a one year contract.

I highly doubt he is looking to sign just a one year deal. Players want to get paid, long term, and he's no different than anyone else.

That's just the way I would operate. It doesn't make me wrong and it doesn't make Gettleman right. Everybody has different ways they build a football team. There is no perfect formula, that's why you don't have a lot of repeats in the NFL.

I think if we had drafted a WR we might still be playing right now. We were the 10th ranked defense in 2012 that's not horrible, this year we bumped up to #2. While we went from the 12th ranked offense to the 26th ranked offense.

We did nothing to address our weaknesses on offense. You take Short out and Insert Kennan Allen and we are a better, more balanced football team. So yea I would have taken a guy who scores touchdowns, who would start on this team, over a non starter. Short was a factor this year, Allen was a difference maker. There's a difference.


Let's see here.


We have AceBoogie of the Carolina Huddle, with how many years working in the nfl was it again? Oh, that's right, zero.


On the other hand we have Dave Gettleman with nearly 30 years experience in the NFL, from scouting, to personnel.


I think I will go with Gettleman.

Great way to raise your kids, judging people you've never even met by the way they look.
