Steve Smith might be a Baltimore Raven now, but he still has a huge chip on his shoulder. When asked after OTAs on Thursday whether or not his best days were behind him, Smith lit into the media and said he was “ready to deliver some humble pie to his critics.’
“I love competition,” Smith said. “Obviously, you (reporters) seem to always have something to say and have a comment, so I love to read those. And I’d like to serve a little humble pie to you and do a little better than what you think.”
“The sense of urgency, I could really (not) care less about that,” Smith said, per The Baltimore Sun. “The (defensive back) that’s going to be sitting in front of me, he’s going to find out how much I have left in the tank, and he’ll find out real quick.”
After two straight 1,000-yard seasons, Smith’s production fell off and pundits attributed it to him losing a step. This season will go a long way in determining whether or not Smith is truly done.
