Default Anthony Smith at it again - predicts win

Some guys never learn.

Smith offers another guarantee

New year. Same big yapper.

Pittsburgh safety Anthony Smith, who guaranteed a win over the Patriots before last season’s contest against New England only to be pan-fried during and after the game, has told reporters that with this year’s Patriots-Steelers game looming Sunday, he’ll say the same thing again this season.

While he stopped short of offering the same flat guarantee he made last year, he still didn’t back down when asked about last season’s ill-fated boast that put him right in New England’s crosshairs.

“If they ask me again, I’ll say the same thing,” Smith told Pittsburgh-area reporters.

“We’re the No. 1 defense,” Smith told the Indiana (Pa.) Gazette recently when asked about his take on this weekend’s Patriots-Steelers game. “If we play like we’ve been playing, and our offense comes around and has a good game, and we’re clicking on all cylinders, we’re going to win the game."

Is the metro boston news trying to create bulleitn-board material for their own team?

No mention of billipricks new o-line tactics class...Helmet removal and hair pulling.

Now for the full quote in context from the Indiana (PA) Gazette:

Quote:
....one year later, as the Steelers are again about to prepare for a battle with the New England Patriots, the buzz around Smith is about to grow again.

Will the same reporters ask Smith to guarantee a win over the Patriots? He's ready if they ask.

``If they ask me again, I'll say the same thing,'' he said Thursday night after the Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-10 at Heinz Field.
Some "guarantee." Sounds more like a Boston-area sports blogger fishing for bulletin board material to me. He won't be starting anyway.

Why does anyone even care what a ST player has to say? Smith hasn't started since last year.

Obviously some asshat reporter went out of his way to coax this out him. Gee, I sure hope this doesn't make the big bad patsies mad.

The whole city of Boston is one giant joke. Some retard sports reporter goes fishing for bulletin board material for his team and doesn't even use the full quote.

I would like nothing more than to see Smith deliever a knock-out blow to a Patriots kick/punt returner on Sunday.

I'd give him a few snaps in nickel situations. I wouldn't make him the last line of defense on the deep ball, but I still have visions of him blowing up either Moss or Welker underneath. A safety blitz maybe......blindside shot on Cassel would be nice.

Yeah, but at the same time Smith should know better by now than to get sucked into that word game mess. I guess in some cases getting older doesn't neccessarily make you wiser.

I'll lend it more credence when an actual guarantee has been made and it's reported by someone other than a fourth-rate hack who writes for a third-rate fishwrap.
