Shut Up And Play: Anthony Smith Does It Again

Justin ZuckerCorrespondent IJune 9, 2016

Anthony Smith has to be one of the dumbest players I have seen. Last season, before the game versus the undefeated Patriots, Anthony Smith decided to guarantee a win. The Pats obviously used the statement as bulletin-board material, and he was later torched for two long touchdown passes. He never started again.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported today that Anthony Smith has done it again.

His quote:

"If they ask me again, I'll say the same thing," he told the Indiana Gazette after the game Thursday night.

"We're the No. 1 defense. 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."

Can someone please tell this fool to shut up? He is a backup safety, with tons of potential yet very little production. He has barely contributed to the defense and thus, has NO business running his mouth. Six tackles this season, six tackles!

Trash talking in the media brings no benefit. There is no reason to get the opposition fired up more than they already are. Especially a proud and successful franchise like the Pats. They will use it to their advantage.

Give it a rest, Anthony.
