Angry For those of you who are jumping on Smith!

Brady said that at first he didn't realize that Smith was yelling at him. He asked one of the coaches "Hey, was he talking to ME?!??" The coach said he was. Brady asked the coach what Smith was saying. The coach said "Oh, he was just being a blanking blank."

The way Brady was saying it, he gave the impression that he got satisfaction from making Smith eat his words.


Who wouldn't?
F*ck the Goatboy, f*ck the Cheatriots.

Smith wears black & gold now. I'd be on his side on this no matter what he said to the Cheating Pathetics. It's like if my brother was in a fight no matter what I'd in it on his side. BACK UP ONE OF YOUR OWN, YINZERS!!! Cuz I still remember some of you folks were saying how you'd dislike if Porter does this & that just because he's not a black & gold no more!

There is such a thing as being classy and winning w/ class = Hines Ward, Troy and many other Steeler (Pro Bowl types) now and in the past.

Smith as a player is not even close to fitting their type of persona in any category. Your defense for him "He is a Steeler therefore he can act like a jerk," is not the type of person the Steeler organization has tolerated in the past.
Smith's actions are an embarrassment to himself and the organization. If he continues it I say he will giving himself his walking papers.

How does anybody DARE speak to Tom Brady that way????

It was insinuated in several articles I read that Smith claims he was misquoted. That he actually said something to effect that he quaranteed a win if the Steelers played to their full potential. Either he's backpedaling or it's possible that gee..........do you think the media could possibly be taking his words out of context.............they've NEVER been known to do that. Either way........I doubt it made much difference in the score of the game. It's just another feather in yankee doodles cap. And Anthony Smith has a lot to learn from the class acts on the Steelers.

Smith Says Patriots Will See Steelers Again in Playoffs

PITTSBURGH (AP) -The New England Patriots didn't totally silence Anthony Smith.

Despite a 34-13 loss Sunday to New England that revealed significant flaws in the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense and their game plan, Smith says he is certain they will see the Patriots again in the playoffs.

That raises this question: If that happens, will the Patriots hear the Steelers again?

Smith, the Steelers' free-talking free safety, guaranteed a win over New England but couldn't deliver on it. By doing so, Smith helped re-ignite a Patriots team that, after barely winning at Baltimore the week before, was starting to look weary and worn down by its pursuit of a perfect season.

With Smith's words clearly on their mind, quarterback Tom Brady and some other Patriots yelled at Smith throughout the game, and coach Bill Belichick tossed in some well-chosen words afterward.

Asked about how Smith was tricked into allowing a long touchdown catch by Jabar Gaffney on a gadget play, Belichick said, "The safety play at that position was pretty inviting."

Give Belichick 5 yards for piling on.

Even worse for the Steelers: The trick play, which began with Brady flipping the ball to Randy Moss behind the line of scrimmage before getting it back to throw downfield, was a mirror image of one Pittsburgh ran while beating the Cincinnati Bengals 31-17 in a playoff game two years ago.

Losing to the Patriots was bad enough for the Steelers. Losing on their own play made it even worse.

Still, Smith wasn't reluctant afterward to discuss his much-publicized remarks, which led some of the remaining fans in Gillette Stadium to chant "guar-an-tee, guar-an-tee" as the game wound down.

Smith's take: the Steelers didn't play well, but there's always next month.

"We will see them again," Smith said.

However, the Patriots' second-half domination during their sixth victory in seven games against Pittsburgh exposed the size of the gap between the teams. After leading only 14-13 late in the second quarter, the Patriots outscored the Steelers 20-0 the rest of the way.

"If that (game) is the measuring stick, we're not close," coach Mike Tomlin said.

Then again, it also didn't look close when the Steelers lost to the then-unbeaten Indianapolis Colts on the road 26-7 in a Monday night game two years ago.

But when the teams met again in the AFC divisional playoffs less than two months later, the Steelers won 21-18 in Indianapolis and went on to win the Super Bowl.

"If we come back (to New England), we are going to be ready, I know that for sure," Steelers right tackle Willie Colon said.

Before they concern themselves with that, the Steelers (9-4) probably should be worrying about coming back strong Sunday against Jacksonville (9-4) in the first of two games in five days. They play again at St. Louis (3-10) in a Thursday night game on Dec. 20.

The Steelers can clinch a playoff spot by winning Sunday and they would secure the AFC North title if they win and the Browns (8-5) lose at home to Buffalo.

"We'll be ready for next week," center Sean Mahan said.

What happened last week could prove to be a valuable learning experience for Tomlin, the rookie head coach. If Bill Cowher were still in charge and Smith talked so loosely, Smith might have to seek out a comedy club to find an open microphone the rest of the season.

Smith may have become emboldened after bragging recently that Cincinnati's receivers were intimidated by Pittsburgh's secondary. At the time, Smith's words didn't cause much of a stir because they concerned a team that was out of the division race.

When Smith made similar comments about the Patriots, and tacked on his guaranteed win, it seemed as if everyone in the NFL noticed.

Now, Tomlin's challenge is to keep his players motivated and confident without them carelessly tossing out words their opponents can use against them. He also must make sure his players don't start doubting themselves after Brady threw for 399 yards and four touchdowns against a defense that had been allowing the fewest yards in the league.

"We're not guaranteed into the playoffs right now, so we need to take care of business this week," linebacker Larry Foote said.

There the Steelers go, talking about guarantees again.

Oh oh. There is he is again. I guess there is nothing we can do to stop him.

Anthony Smith had better learn to be more disciplined or it will be his actions and not his words that get him dumped from this team.

He was made to look like a fool after being totally out of position on the two long touchdowns. The stupidity of his words during the week were matched only by his terrible play on Sunday.

I like Anthony's fire and his intensity but he needs to play with more discipline. Especially when your playing the Pats pass happy offense, you do not bite on the play fake like that.

How do you know what type of players the Steelers tolerated in the past. Players exposure to the media is tenfold what it was back in the 70's and 80's. I can remember hearing that a lot of the teams thought the 70's Steelers were dirty players and said they talked sh**. Add the alleged steroid use and I bet it was like an Altar boy meeting on the fields back then huh?

I will always support my Steelers, but when one of 'em does or says something I find distasteful, I'm going to call 'em on it.

I tend to believe Smith's proclamation that his words were misquoted, as the media - even here in Pittsburgh - tends to twist and turn what pro athletes say to make headlines and get to the presses first to print that "big story". If Smith believes his words were misquoted, he needs to go to the source and ask that the story be officially retracted, though it really doesn't matter now. What's done is done. Truthfully, I'm sick of hearing about it.
