Default A. Smith - Don't Let the Door Hit Ya....

Packers agreed to terms with S Anthony Smith, formerly of the Steelers.

Terms have not been disclosed. Smith will back up starters Nick Collins and Atari Bigby, both of whom are slated to hit unrestricted free agency after next season. Smith has starter level talent and experience, but he's also been a bit of a headcase.

I hope the kid gets his head on straight and becomes a great safety.

I'm also glad he didn't sign with anyone in the AFC North....especially Baltimore.

I had very high hopes for the kid.

Hopefully, he becomes a story like Harrison. A knucklehead that grows up into a good football player.

Probably for the best for him to get a fresh start elsewhere since he's pretty much been on the shit lists of most Steelers fans since the Patriots game back in December of '07. Best of luck to Anthony.

Hopefully he does well, he seems like he could be a Polamalu type player, just about 70% as good. His attitude is likely what got him booted, so if he cleans that up he could be a dominate SS in the NFC. Never did get why he was a FS, but clearly LeBeau didn't predict how well Clark would work out (not that anyone could've).

As you guys prolly know, one of your former DCs is coaching their D now-Dom Capers' track record has been outstanding when he has to fix defenses for his new teams. Who knows? He may get alot out of Smith.

I was hoping Wade would made a run for him after he fired Brian Stewart 2 months ago.

Everybody dumps on this kid for his attitude and one game against the Pats when he was a backup playing due to injury.

But, everybody was in this kids corner when he had a couple INT's as a rookie and was slobberknocking TJ Whosyourmama in division games. Give up on the hate. Smith is gonna deliver some hits harder than Ryan Clark has, but he isnt as good in coverage and that is why he is gone to GB. I hope he does well and am confident he will.
