Do You Remember… Steve Smith In K.C.?

Steve Smith has been in the news lately and that’s more than anything the reason for this selection. The reason Smith’s been in the news?  He wants more $.  I mean, who doesn’t!?!? But all contract talk aside, Steve Smith has been a rock for the Giants the last two seasons…at times has been refered to as Mr. Third Down, Eli’s Comfort Zone,  Steve “Safety Blanket” Smith.  I digress – and not all those nicknames can be verified, but the fact is when the Giants visited the KC Chiefs last year the NY Giant Steve Smith was the leading receiver in the NFL.  He went on to record the second most total receptions, most on third down, and most 1st down receptions in the league.  I can understand why the 4th year slot stud turned pro bowl selection wants more $$$ this year.

Here are the Giants taking it to the home team with the amazing play of Steve Smith who carded 134 yards over 11 rec., 2 touchdowns, and an all around great effort in the 27-16 win over the Chiefs.

    hey listen I’m a die-hard giants fan but it seems every receiver had a record time against KC last year. and i really think it’s about time a contract becomes a contract in the NFL. I’m not a stats guy but how did he do against the jets????

  2. i agree with the contract point. and the post was more about steve smith than it was the Chiefs’ secondary. I think I see your point though, but when did they play the jets last year?

    He had a poor game against Nawlins and Denver reception-wise, and then the last Washington game… but mostly because he’s a small guy and his run blocking isn’t all that.

    Other than that, he was catching passes in double coverages all game, all season long and had defenses scratching their heads. That Wes Welker type of receiver is crucial to moving the chains and part of me thinks he and Eli deserves most of the credit in terms of keeping the Giants offense alive on many of those drives.

    Does he deserve a fresh contract considering? Perhaps.

      sorry i mistyped that “but how would he do against the jets” meaning a team with a better defense…… oh and i don’t discredit him as a good receiver i was just saying the KC game should not be used as leverage for a new contract..that’s all

      • we’ll find out this preseason…. wont we.

        a good slot receiver is tough to shut down though. and revis will have his hands full with hakeem nicks on the outside… hopefully. who knows – ramses barden may need to see some prime time in that game.

        but those matchups will only last a single quarter, tops.
