NFLOCALS — WEEK 8 SPECIAL SALUTE STEVE SMITH, Sr

 STEVE SMITH’S 15TH NFL SEASON WAS TO BE HIS LAST, SO SAID THE FORMER UTAH TALENT.

STEVE SMITH SR CALLED HIS OWN SHOTS EXCEPT ON HIS FINAL DAY. SUNDAY NOVEMBER 1ST WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE SMITH SR’S LAST NFL GAMEDAY BUT NOW AFTER TEARING HIS ACHILLES TENDON, IT ABSOLUTELY APPEARS TO BE SO.

“What hurts the most is that I can’t be out there with my guys,” Smith said in a statement released by the Ravens after the game. “We had a great team win today, and that’s really all that counts.”

 

 

AS STEVE SR RIDES OFF INTO THE STILLNESS OF NFL NIGHT. HE LEAVES SECONDARY’S AROUND THE LEAGUE THAT WILL NO LONGER BE TESTED AND PUSHED AND THEREFORE MADE BETTER BY THIS MODERN MARVEL.

 

THE YOUNG GUYS WHO DON’T KNOW STEVE, WELL THEY

**DON’T KNOW STEVE’S “TEAM FIRST” ATTITUDE WITH A HEAVY SPRINKLE OF “IT’S ALL ABOUT ME”.

**DON’T KNOW THAT IF YOU’RE SMITH SR’S TEAMMATE HE HAS YOUR BACK AND FEW WIDEOUTS WILL SACRIFICE THEIR BODIES LIKE STEVE WILL, EVEN FEWER WILL BLOCK FOR YOU LIKE HE WILL.

**DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH PAIN HE’S ENDURED. AN INCREDIBLE POWER OF EXAMPLE IN A LOCKROOM, FOR SHOWING EVERYBODY HOW TO GO OUT AND COMPETE AND PLAY AND BE PRODUCTIVE OPERATING AT LESS THAN 100%.

 

SUNDAY’S MERCILOUS ACHILLES TEAR WILL DO WHAT NO STRONG SAFETY OF FREE OR COVER-CORNER OR ROLLING ZONE COULD DOTO HIM. SHUT HIM DOWN AND SHUT HIM OUT.

 

SPEAKING OF MERCILOUS, THE EVER-CHATTY SMITTY SR WILL NO LONGER TALK THE TALK RIGHT UP TO AND THROUGH THE TIME WHEN HE WALKS THE WALK PAST, THROUGH, OVER OR AROUND YOU!

 

MERCILOUSLY THERE WILL BE NO MORE OF STEVE SMITH SR’S MOUTHFUL DIRECTED AT ANYONE, ANY PLAYER, COACH, EQUIPMENT KID, MOST OF ALL ANY PLAYER WHO WOULD SPEAK ILL TO SMITH, SR OR (DON’T DO IT!) DARE TO TALK BACK TO STEVE SMITH SR.

 

SSSr FINISHES 10TH ALLTIME IN RECEIVING YARDS WITH 13,915, JUST 90 YARDS OUT OF THE 9TH SPOT! COULD THE 36 YEAR OLD BE TEMPTED TO PUSH BACK ON HIS RETIREMENT STATEMENT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON? RAVENS HEAD COACH JOHN HARBARAUGH  “I have a feeling Steve Smith will be back,” Harbaugh  continued, “I’m looking forward to seeing how this story ends,” Harbaugh added.

 IF THIS INJURY WERE ANYTHING BUT THE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REHAB/RETURN FROM ACHILLES TEAR, I’D THINK STEVE MIGHT BATTLE THROUGH IT BUT I THINK THIS IS TRULY IT.

IF SO, WHAT A CAREER. HE’LL BE WEARING THAT UGLY GOLD BLAZER SOMEDAY, HANGING IN CANTON FOR A WEEKEND. ONLY REASON SMITTY SR WOULD BE THERE OR GO THERE, WOULD BE TO GO INTO THE HALL OF FAME!

 CO-CAPTAIN JOE FLACCO, THE QB WHO HELPED MAKE SMITH THE RAVENS LEADING RECEIVER THIS SEASON SAID THIS

“What he means to this team, this organziation, myself, just what he’s done and what type of competitor he is, I’m not afraid to say it. It’s probably a little bit tougher when you lose a guy like that.”

 

I SURE HOPE I SEE THAT 89 IN RAVENS PURPLE PATROLLING THE OPEN SPACES HE ALWAYS SEEMED TO FIND.
