If he had leveled Reid again, or Jeremy Bloom, etc. this isn't a big deal. But he hit Hines so some of us are calling for him to be released. That's all this is. Hopefully this kid get's his mind right and stops trying to initimidate his own teammates. Save it for Sunday's this year Smith.

The guy appears to not have the cognitive ability to learn or to use any kind of discernment. He really appears to be pretty stupid to put it bluntly.

There have been other reports from the same beat writer that said that he ignores LeBeau as well, not just an offensive coach.
I agree 100%. I'm tired of A Smith. Big hits does not equal good football. If he were really any good at even being a "big hit" guy, he would have been a special teams demon over the last couple years, helping us win some games... instead he's taking cheap shots at teammates during no-contact drills. He's a "big hit" guy when no one else is playing the big hit game. When the whistle blows, he's either toasted, whiffing on a tackle by being out of place, or taking a 15 yard walkoff.

As I have said once or twice when talking about this (dead horse alert), give me a good Mike Wagner text book tackle any day over a big hit. We all like it, and it makes a fine spectacle but the text book tackle gets the job done.

if ur bitching over someone hitting someone in a no-contract drill then ur sad.. it happens all the time, he just needs to control his intensity during pratice, but can't hate the guy 4 going all out evry play.

Incidental contact is understandable, laying the wood twice in one practice during "NO" contact drills is plain stupid, and without excuse. I think the coach in this case pretty much summed it up.

Obviously, just my opinion, but let's start with this.

Smith loves to jaw, and so does Hines for that matter. Hines, as we all know, backs it up come game time. Smith hasn't played too many games first of all, and the ones he has haven't been anything to write home about. That said, gives him nothing to back his "mouth" up with, so he must feel he has something to prove.

He has to start letting his "play" do the talking. The last thing we need is a player like MeAngelo Hall. I witness that crap every week in ATL.

Gotta give respect to get respect.

it's not a surprise at all. he will do it again and again. he is all about himself, not the team.

So if Smith drills Ben into the ground and Ben suffers a separated shoulder...it's just good hard football...right? Doesn't common sense come into play somewhere between the ears of Anthony Smith, or is that just asking too much.

Smith is LOADED with talent. The reports are that he moves like a CB, and that he's has what it takes athletically to be a great player.

But if he's a box of rocks and a headcase, he's doing us zero good. Thank God Clark is back.

Agreed - Smith may be "all combine" in terms of physical tools. But teeing off on a team leader in practice, after his crash and burn against New England, which came after his drum major prance following an INT for which LeBeau tore him a new one in 2006, confirms my suspicion he still does not get it. I do not know who the team leaders are who can tell Smith the facts of life (used to be Porter and Bettis), but it seems to me this has reached the point Tomlin needs to tell Smith he is going nowhere good with this act.
