Steve Smith’s playing days are finished. The brash confidence that made the 5-foot-9 dynamo a star for the Carolina Panthers, though, clearly hasn’t gone anywhere in retirement.
During NFL Network’s pregame show for Thursday’s game between the Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles, Bill Cowher asked Smith, now a television analyst, who was the “best receiver on this field tonight.” His answer is exactly what anyone who followed Smith’s career knew it would be.
“Who’s the best WR on this field tonight?”
“He’s sitting right here!”
New job, same @89SteveSmith 😂

Classic. Based on his show-stopping play over the first five games of the season, though, Eagles wideout Nelson Agholor might have something to say about that.
