He is still young and all I want is for him to have learned something and that is to keep your mouth shut and let your game play do the talking come sunday.
He had to know he was going to get picked on today but he jsut wasn't up for the challenge. The defense showed up big at times but when it came right down to it they took advantage of his inexperience and his hot head and when right after him on those long plays.
Ike got burnt at times yesterday as well but both times he should have had safety help.
Anthony Smith, if your going to guarantee a win verse the PATRIOTS and fire their team up, then you better play your best. He got burned on two huge plays that were an easy 14 points for the patriots. One to Randy Moss and one to Jabar Gaffney. Even though the patriots did that trick play, he shouldnt have started running in towards the ball. THE PATRIOTS DON'T RUN. I think they had just 9 rushing attempts.
Before the Game:
"We're going to win," Smith said after practice yesterday. "Yeah, I can guarantee a win."
After he Game:
"If I had been quoted right, it wouldn't have come out the way it did," he said
So now he's taking back what he said to the press??? Either it didn't come out right or he just feels like an idiot like guaranteeing a win. I don't know if you heard but the whole stadium starting chanting,"GUARANTEE"....thats embarassing
But its not this game that counts, its the next time we see them in he playoffs. This was just practice for the real important game
It is what it is. He said what he said. He got owned like he got owned.
What he does from here on out will show his character. I hope he builds from it , learns, and goes into cyborg anihilation mode. No more talk just total workman effort. Or does he regress, and let this haunt him.
I gotta feel with the team around him, we see a better AS.
Glad it happened in a meaningless, "test-run" game.
Just searchin' for a positive to start my Monday with. ( oh, thanks, Ratturds)

What I don't get, well really I do, is how does a S in our D bite on play action? Our D stops the run with the line and LB's, not the S's, yeah the S's support the run but thats in a defense that can't stop the run. After all the attention his comment brought, he knew he had to back it up, he tried to hard to be the one to make the big plays and got burnt for it big time.

"They say that when you're the champs, everybody will try to beat you. Well, I'm glad we're the champs, so bring 'em on, bring 'em all on. If we die, we ain't gonna die running. It's gonna be a fight."

RIDICULOUSLY good looking...
It's sad that the Media had to take someone's comments and blow them out of proportion and come up with what THEY think Smith meant to say. I feel sorry for Smith now, I hope he declines all interviews with them and tells them all where to stick it!
