STEELERS’ SMITH NOT SILENT ABOUT MEETING PATS AGAIN: A big loss to the NFL’s top team isn’t keeping Steelers safety Anthony Smith quiet:
YAHOO! shares word that Smith still had some things to say, even after Pittsburgh got whalloped by New England 34-13 on Sunday.Days after guaranteeing a win against the Patriots, Smith summed up his post-game feelings with a possible rematch in the playoffs, saying, “We will see them again.”
Anthony was chatting it up with many Pats throughout the game. And when they weren’t sharing pleasantries, Brady & the boys were shredding Smith & the Steelers’ D with TD after TD - including a flea-flicker used by Pittsburgh in a playoff game two years ago.
As the game wound down, the fans at Gillette Stadium soon displayed their razor-sharp wit, as they taunted Smith & Steelers with chants of “guar-an-tee!“Even the soft-spoken Bill Belichick tossed out a few choice words about Anthony’s antics. When asked how Smith was burned by the trick play, the Pats coach responded, “The safety play at that position was pretty inviting.”
Interesting side note: When it comes to playing in the 50 States, Pittsburgh is only 2-48 in the Union this season - having only won in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
