The Other Steve Smith: I’m Going After Him

The other Steve Smith, the one in Carolina, had some pointed words for Giants safety Michael Johnson. Smith, to Peter King, said this:

I’m going after him

Michael Johnson, you may remember, was the one who delivered the hit that broke Smiths’ arm in Week 16. Smith, who is still recovering, told King in that same piece that he will be playing Week 1 against the Giants.

I have a couple issues with this. One, there’s no guarantee Johnson is going to be on the team. In fact, if Kenny Phillips is deemed healthy enough, Johnson is out of here. If Phillips is not healthy, Johnson would be the fourth safety, behind newly added safety John Busing. So, if he is on the team, he’s only going to play on special teams. If he’s on the team. And if he isn’t, what’s Smith going to do? Track him to his house?

I don’t mind Smith speaking his mind: the problem is he’s just not going to be accurate. I really don’t believe Johnson is going to be on the team. Since all Giants castoffs usually end up in St. Louis, Smith should wait for Week 8.

    The Lil’ Steve Smith sounds like a punk, it was a clean hit ,get over it. Is he going after the kids that broke his arm this summer?

    I’ve been at camp the past two days…Busing still doesn’t have his name sewn on the back of his jersey.

    He’s only there to light a fire under Johnson for a job, but Merritt also likes Mike Greco, so there might be some hard choices here…

    Fine. We’ll break SS’s OTHER arm! Go GIANTS!

    Seriously? You have a problem with the statement because in your opinion Johnson won’t be on the roster? The fact that Smith’s showing he’s a punk and a poor sport who can’t accept being the unfortunate recipient of a good hit doesn’t bother you in the least?
