Carolina Panthers at Saints, Sunday, noon

NOT AGAIN

Just three weeks after having to face Saints killer Joey Galloway of Tampa Bay, the embattled New Orleans secondary has the unenviable task of stopping an angry Steve Smith, every bit as big a nemesis as Galloway.

Smith's statistics the past five times the Carolina Panthers have played the Saints are as impressive as Galloway's outrageous numbers the past several years. In Smith's past five games against the Saints, he has caught 40 passes for 495 yards and five touchdowns. He also has rushed for a sixth touchdown.

Smith refused to speak to the news media after the Panthers' 20-7 loss Sunday to the NFC South-leading Buccaneers, but game reports had him screaming through communication devices as he spoke with Carolina coaches in the press box during the third quarter.

He caught five passes for 32 yards, but in the first 53 minutes, Smith was held to two catches for five yards.

The problem was backup quarterback David Carr, who couldn't seem to get the ball to Smith or anybody else.

Carr, playing for the injured Jake Delhomme, out with an elbow injury that reportedly could require surgery, was 19-of-41 for 155 yards. He was sacked three times and hurried often.

"We didn't do anything to stop (Smith)," said Tampa Bay cornerback Ronde Barber, who covered Smith all day Sunday. "He just wasn't getting his opportunities. They weren't giving him opportunities. I don't know the reasons for that. We had some things to deal with Steve Smith today, and to our benefit we didn't have to use them."

Re: Win against Carolina

Two words that scare the hell out of me: Steve Smith.

At this point, I could hang up TDs on the Saints D with one good WR.

Re: Win against Carolina

yeah I know
but the point here is that Carr will be delivering the ball
so we should have a chance no matter who the receiver is

well maybe I should say I hope it doesn't matter

I don't think it matter who is at QB if there line gives him enough time to make a throw we are toast. Carr is going to be the next coming of Peyton Manning.

Re: Win against Carolina

Re: Win against Carolina

What's wrong with double-teaming him?

Oh, and a message to the NO secondary: DO NOT TALK ANY SMACK TO STEVE SMITH!!!

Re: Win against Carolina

If we can't beat a banged up Carolina team that's starting Carr at QB, and this after having a bye week to prepare? We just need to tank this season!

Re: Win against Carolina

If the O line doesn't block and the D line doesn't get any pressure, then it doesn't matter who plays QB cause we are gonna lose. If we are gonna make a run it has to start this week. If we lose the season is over. Sorry for the realism guys!!!
