Around these parts love for Smith knows no bounds, but do people realize he's thirty? With the on-going Peppers saga, and aging Jake Delhomme and Coach John Fox seemingly on a year by year contract, Steve will not stay content for several more years if the Panthers do not continue to make the playoffs and start winning once they're there. I hope Smitty retires a Panther, but I also want to see him win a Super Bowl more than any player I've watched play in a Panther uniform. Here's to hoping that's his wish today and it comes true.
As an aside, we've been down on Pep for most of our existence, but watching this video of last season reminded me that sometimes we do forget just how good he can be.
