Well, it looks like native Pittsburgher and current Green Bay Packers Head Coach, Mike McCarthy, may be looking to get 100% more guarantees in his life. And I say this because apparently the Packers brought in Anthony Smith for a visit this past Wednesday.
Now, farbeit from me to tell anyone how to run their team. I'm not exactly the king of making smart decisions (see: law school). And frankly, I can hardly run my own life most days. Still, I'd be remiss in my duties as a blogger if I didn't make light of the potential stupidity of other teams, individuals, and/or pretty much anything else on God's green Earth.
So, let's review Anthony Smith's career thus far.
A few good outings a couple of years ago notwithstanding, Anthony Smith's major contributions to the Steelers have consisted of...
(a) Being a notorious "practice thug"
(b) Getting famously urinated on by Randy Moss
(c) Showboating on an interception that meant nothing, and
(d) Taking stupid penalties, even after being relegated to Special Teams
However, yes, Anthony Smith is a talented football player. At one point he even looked like the heir apparent to the Free Safety position. And he's probably not altogether a bad human being either. But if you can't temper your aggression with a little discipline, it's somewhat difficult to thrive in the NFL.
Because I would know. Obviously.
This may come as a surprise given the massive verbal dumps I routinely take on him, but I actually wouldn't have minded if the Steelers re-signed Anthony Smith. Sure, he's a retard. But he's our retard.
No, seriously though - he's still got promise, he hits bitches like Chris Brown, and he's younger than Ryan Clark. PS - That Chris Brown joke may not be that funny, depending on humorous you find domestic abuse...
But oh well, there are other fish in the sea. I'm sure if it isn't Ryan Clark, the Steelers will find a non-guarantee-making, solid yin to Troy's yang. Wow, good thing I didn't mistakenly hit the "w" key instead of the "y" key, there. That thought could've taken on a whole new meaning.
Anyways, so long as Anthony Smith's not guaranteeing that Brett Favre will back out of his second retirement, I'm good. Or is it his third? I can hardly keep track. And really, who effing cares? This is all just filler anyhow.
