Does Steve Smith Think Dashon Goldson Is Dumb?

November 29th, 2013

The hated Panthers receiver had some interesting comments on ESPN Radio

Every Bucs fan loathes Steve Smith. When will this guy go away, or at least get drilled hard enough to shut him up?

Joe, however, was thoroughly entertained watching Smith get inside Aqib Talib’s head a couple of weeks ago on Monday Night Football. What brilliant theater. This week, Smith was asked to talk about whether he sees a change in defensive backs trying to play within new safety rules of the NFL, like the ones Bucs safety Dashon Goldson can’t figure out.

Smith says he sees a change but some players don’t have the necessary brain power to adapt.

“Most guys are really choosing wisely in understanding that. And then you got some guys that just, you know, I believe defensive players, their aptitude is just not as high as offensive players,” Smith told the Mike and Mike show on ESPN Radio. “You know, maybe I’m biased, but that’s just how I see things. But I do think they’re being smarter. With these new rules, and the emphasis every single year on something new, I think it does put the refs at a disadvantage. Because every year it’s a new rule and there are new points of emphasis. Well, I mean it just becomes monotonous to where one year this rule applies and the next year it doesn’t. I think it’s too much up and down.”

No, Joe’s not trying to incite Goldson here and get him suspended again. But how good (or bad) would it be to see Goldson take an old school angle on Smith on Sunday.

Joe should be more wholesome in the wake of Thanksgiving, but that’s just hard when trash-talking, arrogant Smith will soon be facing the Bucs.

Joe still remembers the Clifton Smith tragedy and hates all things Panthers because of it.

    I would love to see Dashon take one more penalty and knock that loud mouth into next friggin’ year.

    You can’t hit anyone hard anymore. Even if it’s clean, it still gets flagged because it looks too violent. These new rules eat my izz.

  3. Snook Says:

    Can’t wait til the panthers get to playoffs and go one and done with their soft QB.

  4. the_buc_realist Says:

    I still have not heard 1 Buc coach saying that he needs to change the way he plays. The Pop-star bought a hard hitting safety and thats what they got.

    I would rather they play clean and neutralize Smith. I remember two humongous hits the Bucs put on Steve Smith. One by Tanard (don’t bogart the joint) Jackson that resulted in an interception by Talib and another by Mark Baron right on the sideline. Both times Smith got right up like nothing happened. He’s a tough competitor and an excellent receiver. One thing that always endeared Smith to me was when Caddy got hurt Smith was the first to signal our sideline frantically to get help out to him. Small nugget but it always stuck with me. The special teams hit on CLifton still pisses me off too.

    Steve Smith isn’t so smart himself….the last time I checked half of his teamates play defense….so if Goldson is dumb….so are his own teamates!!!

    Smith is a very tough customer….bettter to lay into Cammy than Smith…..

  7. Mcbuc Says:

    I always remember smith jumping up and down yelling for help on caddy.

  8. DallasBuc Says:

    So Smith let me get this straight, it is monotonous that the rules are up and down?…and he is the smart one??

    I also remember Smith calling over to the Bucs sidelines when Cady went down. I do not have a problem with Steve Smith. I do have a problem with these rediculous rules. There are health hazards in many American jobs that cannot be eliminated. The game is a shell of what it used to be. I have FIOS and on demand on the NFL channel, I was watching super bowl special going back to the Packers with Lambardi. The NFL used to be real football. It had the cream of the crop of players and was going to be a main event contest every week with bone crushing hits. If the NFL started out as it is currently, then it would not have been a success and would not have become # 1 in American sports. If things do not loosen up with the rules then I do not see a long time ahead of it dominating. People will switch to college football because the NFL is too boring.

    Just go win – let the media feed on the aging receiver.

    How about Banks or Barron laid the wood to Scrawny Smith. Banks or Barron won’t get fined nearly as much as The Hawk. What I’m looking forward to the most is Scam Newton getting laid out by GMC. Lets see him do that weak a$$ super man move then! I’m surrounded by Stinking Panthers fans up here and nothing would make me happier than to the Bucs win knock them out of the play off hunt.

    Got to get my bucs news elsewhere till the “read more” is a thing of the past – sorry

    Too bad you’ll miss Part II of the Dave Wannstedt interview Joe just posted. Have a pleasant day. –Joe

    [read more] = greed

  14. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Hmnnn…changes have been slipped into the rules for years now…but the worse the last 3-5 years. Coincidently? That’s when ticket sales got worse.

  15. Mike Says:

    I agree with you to a point RachelWatson’sthong….. When Barron hit Smith…… He looked dazed and confused and got up rather slow

  16. bucrightoff Says:

    15 posts in and not one reference to Steve Smith punching teammates in the face? For shame.

  17. Drew H. Says:


    This [read more] option is absolutely destroying your mobile following…and we all know it’s for more ad space…c’mon man.

  18. Bucfan#37 Says:

    Maybe you people with mobile phones just have too fancy mobile phones. I don’t know what the changes Joe is making are. I use an older phone. It does’nt have video capability, I don’t miss what I never had. I hope my access stays mostly like it is now.

    Sadly, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Joe could give you five reasons. –Joe
