Legendary Carolina Panthers WR turned NFL Network Analyst Steve Smith joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse to give his takeaways from the Panthers loss to the Saints, and how impressive the Pittsburgh Steelers look right now.

Steve started the interview by telling us some of the things he noticed from yesterday's loss as he noticed the Saints put an emphasis to slow down Robby Anderson and noticed that the Panthers interior O-Line was struggling particularly late in yesterday's contest.

When asked about how the loss on Sunday impacts the importance of Thursday's home game against the Falcons Steve told Kyle that it makes it that much more important to win because you don't want to find yourself 1-3 in the divison especially in a year with an extra wild card spot and the NFC West looking to hog up both slots along with the Bucs and Saints a couple of games ahead of the Panthers.

Looking around the league Steve also came away very impressed with the Steelers win over the Titans as the offense for Pittsburgh is clicking even with JuJu Smith-Schuster not showing up in the stat sheet.
