:-) Good signing by the Panthers, that's for sure. Keary Colbert would make a nice #3 as well.

Steve Smith's stock goes down a bit now... as he won't be getting 100% of the looks any more.

This signing came from nowhere woohoo I love this stuff. Smith is still a monster and will put up mad stats next season. Sure maybe wont get as many looks but he won't be double covered on every play now.

NFC is catching up with the AFC. Delhomme moves up a few notches for me.

Oh YEAH. Sure didn't see that coming. I think he's a perfect complement to Smith, and can see Smith's stats keeping up there as well.

Not sure what Dallas was thinking.....if they think Meshawn's ego was too big for their taste, then they really have something to compare it to now.

Dallas' loss, Carolina's gain in my opinion!

Meshawn's problem is that he's not as good as he thinks he is. He's a possession TE in a WR's body. The only YAC that he gets is if the DB's fall down. Dallas didn't lose a thing because they got TO who is WAY better than Meshawn. Carolina gained because they didn't have a good #2 WR last year. That's all Meshawn is and I'll bet anything that he starts complaining that Steve Smith is getting more looks than him. In his little mind he thinks he's a #1 WR. He wasn't even #1 on Dallas last year.

I think Steve Smith's #'s will stay the same. He probably won't get as many looks as he did last year, but he won't be double & triple covered as much either.

I think he will slightly improve his #'s for the exact same reason you stated in bold. I wouldnt be surprised either way though.
