Steve Smith told the Panthers players to fly back to Carolina (Video)

When Steve Smith went off this week, he was not on the field saying too much. Instead, he told the Panthers players to go back to Carolina and keep his lawn mowed.

Wow, Ice Up Son….

Smith went on to say this in an interview on the radio.

“Every time I keep reading stuff and reports come out, I just think I was stabbed in the back,” Smith said. “Just like coach Rivera said he wasn’t a sore loser, but yet he never even spoke to me through the whole ordeal. Not one time. He didn’t look at me man-to-man and said this was going down. He said he’s a players’ coach but he never came in and said ‘Hey Smitty, this is going on. Wanted to give you a heads up.’ He hid in his office.\

“Then you come at the end of the game and I play decent and then you come and shake my hand and say, ‘Congratulations. I hope your family’s well. Good luck.’ But we were supposed to be boys and respected me. You would have done it from the jump. You don’t do it at the end. And then you tell the media. Why? So you can look a certain way.”

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has more quarterback pressures than almost half of the NFL teams have. Watt had nine quarterback hits last week alone of E.J. Manuel.

@AlbertBreer: This stat, from @McClain_on_NFL, is mind-boggling: JJ Watt has more quarterback hits than 15 of the NFL’s 32 teams do.

This is why J.J. Watt was given a 100 millions dollar deal.
