Yes, I was honestly surprised by Talib on Monday. I expected for him to have a better game. I own him in an IDP league so I like to watch his stats and what have you from time to time. But, Smith definitely had the better game.
The thing is though we no longer really rely on Steve, he mainly acts as our Roddy White in a lot of our games - because so many teams know that Smith is our only name brand receiver. However, Donald LaFell has shown he can step up and so has Ted Ginn. I don't think stopping Smith is going to do much to our team anymore.
I don't think Panthers are overlooking this game at all - with the Shula ties and the constantly regurgitated stat that we've never beaten the Dolphins that seems to be floating around. That in itself is enough for our teams bulletin board.
I am not cocky about this game at all though. I don't like the term of "trap" games. I just think there's always a possibility of either team bringing it or failing to bring it. Any given Sunday as they say.
