Default joey porter: the smack talk genius?

jeramy stevens offered a thimble full of smack. porter responded with a 5 gallon bucket. yet its stevens who is made out to be the instigator and the dumb one who did exactly what their coaches have asked them not to do all week.

stevens simply pulled the cork out of a barrell that was bound to burst eventually (so they say), yet porter will get a free pass for all the smack he has unleashed.

advantage steelers

just like jerome is deflecting all attention away from his offensive team mates, joey has just released all other 10 defenders from extra pressure and attention (isnt this what great leaders do?). porter dont care if the seahawks double team him with stevens all day and shut him out, cause that just frees up, polamalu, hampton, haggans, farrior, smith, foote and von olhoffen. (expect atleast 1 cb blitz too) unselfish move on porters part.

advantage steelers

ever notice that joey porter called out the colts offense for trying to turn it into a thinking mans game where they try to outsmart you and confuse you, with all the audibles and motion, and not just lining up and hiking the ball? isnt this exactly what di*k lebeaus defense does?

dont think its just porter mouthing off and joey being joey. the dude is smart and very calculating and deserves every penny he is being paid.

Tom Jackson and Mark Schlereth on Sportscenter called what Stevens did "foolish".

Jackson was amazed that of all people he would pick Bettis to talk shit on. Mark said that there are some players you don't care if they get mad, Joey Porter isn't one of them.

Good Stuff! I feel better about the game now.

Yeah honestly I don't care how "good" you think you are, how "overrated" you think a certain player is, or how ineffective you might think he'll be in an upcoming game. The LAST thing you wanna do is give any player or god forbid the whole opposing team any more fire in this game.

What an idiot. Here is a solid article with a lot of dialogue from Porter and Stevens for those interested:

My favorite example of his "genius" is when he criticized the Colts because they run trick plays.

LOL!!!

those comments are what promted this thread. stevens made what was really an insignificant comment and porter just used it as an excuse to unleash and do exactly what he has been itching to do. porter comes off as looking like the good guy and stevens as the idiot.

i dont think cowher minds either as long as it wasnt joey who started it.

brilliant!

Let the games begin. Although I wouldn't go this far, some might suggest that Porter (and the Steelers) need this kind of thing to get pumped up... I like Stevens response:

The compliment: "I think that will make it more exciting. That fuels the fire," Stevens said. "He's an up-tempo guy, and playing that way is why football is fun."

Then, reflecting on what Porter said, he added, "He said I'll be on my back?"

Stevens flashed a smile.

"We'll see."

If the media is truly portraying it this way, then you know East Coast Bias is in full swing!
Fine by me- it just ensures Stevens will be ready to play his ass off.

is there an echo? didnt i just say that? steelers d probably runs more "trick plays" than any other team, (dont get butt-hurt patfans. they didnt have the personnel this year to do what they normally do)
let alone what they do on offense. my favorite offensive trick play is when theres 8-9 in the box and they still run it.

Barry Sanders wouldn't. I don't know if anybody heard him on Rome this week, but it was fairly amazing. He's the "Anti-Chad", considers it bad form to call attention to himself, looked at the NFL as a 9-5 job, and just went out and left it all on the field. When he left the NFL on the verge of crushing Emmett Smith's rushing record (Which he would have), it wasn't even the first time he'd done that. He sat out late in a HS game where a few more runs would have netted him another title.

I just feel priveledged that I was able to see the guy play, and see him a lot.

Smack talk on a MB is kind of fun, but I'm old school...I didn't really engage in it when I played, and I don't really like it that much now.
