A man that is so disruptive in the locker room he is let go then promises "Blood and guts everywhere"? He is the polar opposite of Colston and that reason is part of why Colston is loved so much.

“put your goggles on because there’s going to be blood and guts everywhere.”

Re: STEVE SMITH

LOL he is such a class act. Just heard an interview where he was asked about being released.

"I've never been a free agent before, I'm going to enjoy getting a few free dinners out of it".

Re: STEVE SMITH

Y'all lame ... What we supposed to beat Seattle with some lay down kind of targets ? No , let you into a secret most studs in any sport have a fire about them ... That used to be coveted I don't know when it became a negative ...

If Ali were a boxer now we'd crucify him for his attitude. I'm not changing a damn thing about him or any other stud because that attitude makes them special ... It's passion !!! It's fire , it's staying up late at night crying because you want it so badly , it's pushing the envelope , and yes it's loud and intimidating when it's done right !!

Oh and I could imagine how frustrating staying loyal to one franchise for an entire decade must be when more often than not he found himself at the bottom of the NFC south and at home during the playoffs growing older with the franchise constantly up in the air , yeah I would've told a lot of people off during that time span myself

Michael Jordan punched steve Kerr I hear no bashing about that !? Nah he did it was because he was so passionate , nobody refers to him as a punk ! We know better than that !

We pick and choose our favorites and use bs excuses to further justify our way of thinking , that's human nature ... That's politics , relationships , business , monopoly whatever you name it !

Never has he been suspended for Guns , drugs , steroids , never has he held out , ordinary people just fail to recognize a passionate person at heart when they do see one. It scares Them to see a person on fire inside


Like when Ingram was getting hot and he knew it , I heard saints fans upset because of his bravado ... Like damn really ??? He's been labeled a bust and hurt most of his career can he be happy that he got his career back on track ?

I tell you what let's send another dull team to Seattle and see how that works out for us ...

He was a locker room issue, several times. add in a few punched teammates:

All I know is he plays angry. He brought it. ALL the time. Regardless the score or the standings, the man played with fire. He didn't cause Carolina any issues. Feisty as he may be in the locker room, he was never the reason or the person anyone could point to as causing them to perform poorly.

I know we can't afford to sign him, but if we could I'd be screaming it from the top of the hill.

Ravens and WR Steve Smith reached agreement. He's a Raven.

Re: STEVE SMITH

I think I'll go to Baltimore, I'm tired of all the sunshine. Think I'll start a new life. Where no one knows my name. Yeah I think I'll go to Baltimore. Get out of Carolina. I think I'll go to Baltimore. To leave this all behind.
