Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers was resurrected by way of Cam Newton and the explosive season the rookie quarterback had last year.
This year, things are a bit different.

The throw in that gif from late in the 4th quarter with a chance to get the lead virtually sums up his performances thus far this season.

I just have this mental image of him sitting down in front of a baby grand piano, scooching the bench a little closer, placing his fingers upon the keys, then letting go with a long, audible sigh.A small child, eyes bright with wonder, heart bursting with love, mind overloaded with a insatiable desire for knowledge of...
The results of Week 5 left Panthers OL Ryan Kalil no choice but to purchase another newspaper ad.

The lynchpin of Carolina's offense is still Cam Newton, who through four weeks has been putting up similar numbers to those from his Pro Bowl rookie season.
