If Anthony Smith Says It, It Must be True

Well, this might be just what the Patriots needed. I'm not sure that was the best course of action for Mr. Anthony Smith to take...

Hey, speaking of Anthony Smith...has anybody even ever heard of this guy? I follow football pretty avidly, I live in Pittsburgh, I read the papers and I've never, ever heard of this guy. Which begs the question: Who the fuck is Anthony Smith?

Hold on a moment while I go find out...

Oh, jeez. My bad. At first I thought this guy must really be somebody. You know, to guarantee a victory over an unbeaten team. Like he has some idea what he's talking about. That maybe he'd actually played against us before and knew something the rest of us didn't know. I had no idea he was a goddamn undrafted, second-year backup who's only playing because somebody I have heard of is hurt. What does this guy know about winning? His teams were 17-30 when he was at Syracuse. This is the guy guaranteeing that the Steelers beat the Patriots? Seriously? Is that even bulletin board material when a guy who was in high school when we beat the Rams in the Super Bowl runs his mouth? Well here's a guarantee: by the end of the week Coach Bill will have the Pats' receivers believing this guy is the second coming of Ronnie Lott and that their entire existence and manhood is on the line in this epic battle of tested, veteran, pass-catching talent versus I'm sorry, what was your name again?

BECAUSE WE'VE NEVER HEARD OF YOU!

Good news for you though, Mr. Anthony Smith: you'll be a household name after Sunday afternoon. As in, "Randy Moss/Wes Welker/Jabar Gafney/Donte Stallworth/Ben Watson/(insert anybody here, really) gets behind Anthony Smith again! And it's another big gain for the Pats!"

P.s. If you play for the Steelers and you are not Anthony Smith, please don't beat him up. I really want him to play on Sunday...

so we survived, very well i might add, sundays game, and that tool #27 had ego properly squashed. even the brady sandwhich made me smile :) they were done after that in my mind...i started my afternoon next to an eagles fan who "magically" after losing to the giants turned into a steelers fan. was it pats hating or this crazy state loyalty that i have never seen before??? do the giants root for the jets? or the bills ? the bengals for the browns? NO. must be a hater/poser i decided. and he as annoying!!! rooting when we didn't convert on any down..lame. as someone who lived in mass. until i was 21 i have no dual loyalty...don;t get it.



what a play from brady to moss to brady to gaffney!!! hallelujah, that is love

Dual-loyalty is an oxymoron. As was the zit-faced EFagles/Steelers fan.

So I heard the guy, after his guarantee was wrong, said something about how he can't wait to play the Pats in the playoffs. Really should think about the up-shut at this point. His teammates must be pissed.

Was in NYC this weekend. Saw a Steeler fan with yellow clothes and a terrible towel running off the subway looking fairly depressed, so I figured they must've lost. Then we noticed that right across, almost, from Patty O'Brien's, the Sox bar that's also a Pats bar I guess, is a Steelers bar, which had a huge inflatable Steeler outside. Crazy day for that part of 2nd Ave.

another W in the bag. enjoyed watching the jags drop a touchdown pass right in front of our mascot #27 again. that was quite enjoyable...haters were out again but i guess that is just jealousy. the dolphins won which sucks but all streaks cannot go unbroken....

I hear the "get right outta town" in a Wayne Campbell voice.
