STEELERS SAFETY SMITH SAYING SAYONARA TO NE STREAK: According to Anthony Smith, New England’s pursuit of perfection will peter out at 12:
The PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE prints some billboard material for the Patriots, as the Steelers safety promises victory on Sunday:”We’re going to win. Yeah, I can guarantee a win.”
Smith’s confidence seems to stem from the Steelers’ 24-10 shellacking of the Bengals Sunday night, inching Pittsburgh closer to an AFC North title.
As such, Smith also takes a side shot at Pats pass-catchers like Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Donte Stallworth, by saying, “I don’t think it gets much better than Cincinnati’s corps of receivers. We’ve already seen the best.”
With close calls against the Eagles and Ravens in the last two weeks, Tom Brady & the boys have looked vulnerable. If anything is assured, it’s that Mercury Morris will definitely be bedecked in black & gold this weekend.
