Back to his old act of laying out his teammates. This time it was Hines. Laying out your franchises all time reception leader during practice. Someone needs to kick this guys a$$. I hope he never sees the field. He must have one functioning brain cell in this pin head.

i agree they really need to sit smith down and stop this sh$$. i remember the incident last season as well. its great he loves to hit people but there is a time and place for every thing. imagine if hines was injured? smith has talent but he lacks brains.

This kid is hard to stomach. He is climbing the list of my all time most hated Steelers.

I guess he feels he needs to hit his temmates in practice because as we saw last season he can't cover anyone in games and get close enough to hit the opponents. The guy is a punk.

he did lay out douchemanzadeh last season a couple of times, that was pretty sweet. he will be a good player once he matures and gets smarter

AS...is one of those guys who will string us along for years....wanting him to "bloom" and mature. It won't happen. I would say his IQ is around 80...plus he has impulse control issues. He is a terrific athlete but without a constructive thought in his head.

That pretty much sums up the two schools of thought on this kid. I hope he learns and winds up being a stud for us, but I'm starting to think that might not happen.

I'm not even factoring in his "guarantee" from last year, just the hitting folks in camp...

I'm with you ... I REALLY want to like him. I think he has the ability to be a game changer with his hits and athletic prowess. I didn't realize he has little to no common sense. One of the vets needs to take him aside and explain some things to him. Let him know he could be playing for the bengals. :wink:

that wasnt even a guarantee though. that was just a pi$$ poor journalist trying to bait a young and dumb player and it worked. i dont blame smith all that much for that. people forget the week after that game he made an int and brought it back to the jax 5 which led to a comeback, that fell short of course. but still if he had not made that play it wouldnt of even been close. his bad plays definetly over shadow his good ones. kind of like when nate drops a pass its a lot more noticeable than when any other wr drops a pass

I agree, I didn't mean for it sound like I was just ignoring that, and it was a huuuuge deal. I don't think the "guarantee" was really his doing. He was just being confident, which is good. If you look at the quote, the fact that it was taken as a guarantee was laughable. Now, he did get beat like a drum in that game... He has had his moments in other games (the decleating of Houshmangina comes to mind).

However, when he makes a big play, I'm almost worried that he won't finish the play because he's so excited to start his celebration. Combine that with his seeming inability to learn, and it's troublesome.

:Agree It was pizzpoor judgement on the local journalists who led him into that lin of question, and really poor judgement on the national media for playing it as much as they did. It made that loss that much more hard to stomach.

WRs are sissies. There's hitting going on all over the place. If you don't want to be hit, get off the FOOTBALL field.

Why are we excited to hear that Woodley is unblockable - doesn't that mean he's basically blasting people, etc.

I am not that excited. Woodley is hitting people too hard. Not fair to the rest of the guys.

Can we leave "appearance" out of this?

Seems like a "character" issue to me judging from the behavior pattern, probably an enduring trait, If so, the behavior may be difficult to change without strong and consistent external controls. I think he'll be a coach's management challenge as long as he plays. Good luck, Tomlin and staff.

That said, I hope he surprises us and learns what needs to be learned. I like having the threat of his hitting out there for us.

As for his play last year, he is not suited to free safety but played out of position by team necessity. His strengths are suited to strong safety. I am glad to see Ryan Mundy drafted as I think he'll stick, back up Clark for a few years and learn from him, and be an asset in both short-term and long-term at FS and STs.

Unlike most of you, I actually think it's funny.

Hines jumps his schitt for blasting Reid and he says, fine, I'll blast you, too.

At the time, some people criticized him for doing it to Reid, as if he was picking on the little guy.

Sorta reminds me of the Michael Jordan story where he dunked on a little guy (Mark Price, maybe) and the fans said "pick on pomeone your own size" and he later dunked on a 7-footer...

It was a no-contact drill. Hines was not prepared for being smacked. Smashing a receiver on your team (not to mention one of the team's best players) over the middle in a no contact drill is stupid, not funny. Hines could've very easily been injured. I'm sure the coaching staff didn't find it easy.

Reacting got him toasted last year. How many times did he come up for run support
on a play action and get burnt deep?

I think I've mentioned this before on the other board, but my brother-in-law graduated
high school with him, and before A. Smith every played a down in the NFL, my bro said
the exact same things that most of us are saying now. "He's cocky, dumb as a rock,
has no common sense, and is pretty much an a-hole."

Still, I'd like to see Smith mature into his potential and bring some quiet swagger.

i hear ya, i dont like the idea of smith blasting hines before the season even starts and given his age and injuries the last few years, but i like that a.smith loves to hit people. if he learns to play with control watch out. it was really stupid though

I mean.....seriously.

Can we leave "appearance" out of this?

Seems like a "character" issue to me judging from the behavior pattern, probably an enduring trait, If so, the behavior may be difficult to change without strong and consistent external controls. I think he'll be a coach's management challenge as long as he plays. Good luck, Tomlin and staff.

That said, I hope he surprises us and learns what needs to be learned. I like having the threat of his hitting out there for us.

As for his play last year, he is not suited to free safety but played out of position by team necessity. His strengths are suited to strong safety. I am glad to see Ryan Mundy drafted as I think he'll stick, back up Clark for a few years and learn from him, and be an asset in both short-term and long-term at FS and STs.

Are you ugly or sumthin'?

Sorry didn't mean to offend.

:lol:

Yeah, I took a few pucks in the face, but my wife likes how I look so its all good.
No offense taken.

I have no issue with intensity on defense. Hell, I remember some articles on Jack Lambert's "intensity" at practice. But Jack was a respected leader on a team filled with notable legends. He not talked the talked but he walked it as well. All this kid has done is jaw some guarantee that his play could not support... which inevitably made his team look dumb. He needs to focus that intensity in the game with some spectacular defensive plays, hard-hitting enough that offenses will no game-plan anything near him. That's the kind of intensity worth noting. Until then, he's just some punk who likes to play bull-dozer at inopportuned momemts.

AS, I feel for him and the "guarantee" label that he's been given. That interview was total b.s. I only fault him for being inexperienced and not realizing that he was being set up.

It wasn't much different that this.
"Do you think you can beat the Pats?"
"Sure"
"Is that a guarantee?"
"Well, if we bring our A game, we can beat them"
"So, that IS a guarantee?"
"Uh... sure"

Yeah, it's an example of the press trying to make sensational attention-getting news for themselves rather than reporting the facts.

It's the way of the world today, and players have to be savvy to it so they don't get gothcha'ed by the media, which I agree is what happened to AS.

I would like to see AS get a chance to take Moss apart going over the middle is Moss has the cahones to go there.

I think Smith still makes the team. For the record, I like Smith as a safety. He never was all that bad last season. Had it not been for the bad Pats game, he would not be getting the negative attention he gets now.

But this was very irresponsible. Does he honestly think this will help him make the team? He needs to grow up, calm down, and get his head in the game. Cheap shots will not help his case.

AS ~ Yes, you !!! Go for it.
Hey, at the least, you could graphic it up for us all on the board. You snuffing Moss and then lighting it up with a celebration would be a double-Yoi.

The only reason I don't advocate cutting Smith is because in all likelihood Cleveland or Cincinnatti would pick him up in a heartbeat since their secondaries are so bad.

He isn't without potential, but as my boss says "his brain is stuck on stupid."
