For many years, Steve Smith was the only Panthers offensive player that any other team feared.
Like many NFL players in general and WRs specifically, there was an ego and he was a little man, playing a big man's game.
He's gone now, probably 2 years too late, and had he played for a team that had a decent QB the last 4 years of his career, there
would be no question that he would be in the hall of fame.
The fact is we know little about the people whose jerseys we wear and whose efforts we cheer. Some are better than we think and
some worse than we can ever imagine and some get too much forgiveness when they should be in jail.
I wish Steve well. We all should wish him well as a man, a husband and a father.
