Well, I hope your weekends were all as ridiculous as mine.
Without getting into too much detail, let's just say I was in
Killadelphia Philadelphia for a whole 24 hours (and didn't get mugged once), and upon my return to the Garden State, played Rock Band for a cumulative 10 hours over two days. Whilst obviously not drinking any alcoholic beverages of any kind. Never. Certainly not via a beer bong...
Anyway, I'm sure you didn't come here to read about my foolish exploits. So I'll get right to the point.
I was thinking yesterday - What of Anthony Smith? Two years ago, he looked like the heir apparent to the starting Free Safety position. Now, many might say, not so much.
Has our confidence in The Prophet been so shaken over a so-called "guarantee?" Has that one embarrassing performance made us think he isn't the long term starter?
Then, of course there's the flip side. In the limited duty he's seen he's been pretty solid. I mean he hasn't been the second coming of Carnell Lake. But he's been a good, aggressive tackler and a steady set of hands (unlike some other Pittsburgh DBs who shall remain nameless...).
So now that Ryan Clark is coming back from the spleenectomy, and Tyrone Carter is still hanging around, have the Steelers thought about where Anthony Smith fits in? Is he still the next starter at FS? Will he learn from his youthful transgression? And most importantly - Will he please guarantee that some really hot blond will want to make out with Cotter? Wait, his guarantee didn't work out so well, did it?
Oh, and here's a rundown of what you missed this weekend while you were consuming 64 Nathan's Hot Dogs and serving as a shining reminder that America is home of the free, home of the brave, and of course, home of the massive coronary...
- Bill Belicheat. Snubbing people since the early 90's.
- Mewelde Moore. Some think he might have a big impact.
- James Farrior. Wants to play another four years.
- Northeast Ohio. Can't even enjoy Arena Football.
Cot-ter, end communication.
