02:20 AM ET 11.18 | Steve Smith still has something to offer, and it's exactly why he needs to remain a part of this team for now, despite losing a step with age. The 5'9" block of dynamite is, at only 185 pounds, one of the strongest and most physical receivers in the NFL. He plays more like he's 6'3" and is a wonderful run-blocker. He plays with a chip on his shoulder, which draws an unsportsmanlike flag once in a while, provides a reminder to the team that he plays hard every play -- and so should they. It's an important lesson for this offense to learn -- one it hasn't yet, apparently. Linemen are missing blocks or jumping before the snap, receivers are dropping balls, people aren't hustling. It's getting to be a mess more and more.

I just saw that the "Choirboy" handed out over a quarter million dollars in fines last week, including one for cussing on the field. That clown has got to go. NOW

"Something to offer" means diarrhea of the mouth in his case.
