Summary Carolina lost its top four wide receivers from last year including Steve Smith, the franchise's all-time leader in receptions and touchdowns. NFL Coach of the Year Ron Rivera expects first-round draft pick Kelvin Benjamin, who has earned a starting spot, to emerge as the No. 1 receiver and work alongside veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.

Summary Yesterday Arizona's nasty and competitive Republican gubernatorial primary concluded with the right-wing favorite in the race, State Treasurer Doug Ducey, winning with a plurality of the vote over five rivals, including former Mesa mayor Steve Smith, who was endorsed by incumbent governor Jan Brewer. The state of gubernatorial races helps provide an antidote to the "Republican wave" assumptions flowing from this year's wildly slanted Senate landscape.

Summary Veteran players like Haloti Ngata , Steve Smith, Terrell Suggs and Joe Flacco will do the heavy lifting, but a lot of first or second year players need to produce if the Ravens want to return to the postseason. "It's hard to run the ball against them, and we still expect to run the ball against that kind of a front. But, they were determined to stop the run and play us at man coverage." The best thing is that the Ravens found a way to succeed and they can go back and watch the film to address how they will handle these situations in the future.

Summary Looks Like the Baltimore Ravens Have a Beast in Steve Smith--I Mean Steve Smith Sr. When the Baltimore Ravens signed long time Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith--excuse me, Steve Smith Sr. now--they knew what they were getting.
