Default Re: Rookie safety in line for dime

I'm really excited to see what Smith can do on Sunday - he's eager, motivated, fast and physical - a very nice combo! I believe he is going to play his heart out and give it his all on Sunday. As Haiku stated, Smith is definitely our diamond in the rough.

Last year, the Steelers allowed only three scoring drives 80 yards or longer in the regular season, and one of those was an 80-yard touchdown catch by Marvin Harrison on the first play from scrimmage in the Nov. 28 loss in Indianapolis.

"It kills you," said inside linebacker James Farrior. "It kills your whole momentum, it kills your confidence. We pride ourselves in not enabling a team to drive the ball all the way down the field on us. That's one of the things we do best. It usually doesn't happen, but it happened a couple times Sunday night, so we're disappointed about that."
OK, James - time to take over the leadership role here and put a fire under your teammates asses!
