He's stuck on the bench as of now. Ryan Clark has been playing a pretty high level this year.

Ryan Clark is just an overall better coverage FS than Smith, sure Smith can hit, but obviously when Smith played last season he got burned on several plays deep and the Steeler won't tolerate that.

I was at Smiths first satart back i 06 against the Browns and the dude played trememdously. He has really falling off under Tomlin.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone have Smith's hit on TJ, I can't find it anywhere and that hit was a thing of beauty.

His greatest hit was in that pre-season game his rookie year when he knocked out that dude on kick coverage. He hit him so hard the helmet went over Smith's eyes.

I wish he wouldn't get burnt all the time I like watching him play and the hard hits he gives.

he was one of the few high lights in Syracuse football ... hope he will be in on more plays soon , he is young so could be nice to have him fresh and undamaged in a few yrs ( smarter too )

Smith is just one of those guys that have all the skills and tools to be a star but is just too stupid to realize that.I saw an interview last year with Deshea and they were asking him who the best player on defense was and he said Anthony Smith.Then they asked him if he was talking about the best DB and he said no best player on defense.Even better than Troy ? yup he said.

so that might be one of the reasons why the steelers dont want to cut him loose,they know he could be something but he just doesnt seem to be intelligent enough.

but in all honesty he should play instead of Tyrone Carter we always get burn with Carter anyway so....at least put the guy who could force turnovers and hit hard

Sadly, smith is a complete knucklehead.

I was a BIG BIG fan of his. But just seems to not be able to engage his brain.

Unfortunately he still made the team...At least he is quiet!
