    Former NFL WR Steve Smith Sr. Calls Steelers’ Steven Nelson An Average CB; Tells Him To Ice Up

    The war of words between Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Steven Nelson and former NFL wide receiver-turned-NFL Network analyst Steve Smith Sr. continues on.

    In case you haven’t been following along, a little over a month ago Smith listed the play of Nelson last season when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs as one of the reasons why that team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.

    “The biggest game of their [the Chiefs] career, the Patriots, [the] defense didn’t show up,” Smith said on ‘GMFB’ on the NFL Network when talking about what the Chiefs need to do this season to compete for a championship. “They got Tyrann Mathieu, they let go of Eric Berry, they let go of Steve Nelson, who he really didn’t cover very many people anyway. So, they really have to get some good guys in the back end in the secondary, because if they dont, they are going to find some trouble.”

    Nelson is above average ..... 82.8 as a passing rating against in the NFL of today is very good.Every CB can give a TD, especially against Brady.

    Also, the biggest problem for the chiefs was their run defense .... Yes the chiefs were 31st for the yards against the pass, but the opposing teams tried the most passes against them ..... Their pass defense was 12-13th for YPA against and passing rating against.

    An average CB is something that will do us a lot of good compared to last year. Even if we overpaid, closing the blatant exploit that was available to opposing offenses at CB2 is like getting rid of a reverse Pro Bowler.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    Well, from what I recall, KC did give up a lot of points last year. Obviously, Nelson wasn't the only reason for that. Smith does kinda give him a back handed remark insinuating it though.
    I just hope he plays well for us. Not just better than Burns or Sensabaugh... 'cause that ain't saying much.

    In related news, Current Steeler fan GoSlash27 calls ESPN's Steve Smith Sr. "a washed up attention whore"; Tells him to slather on the Ben Gay.
    "You've heard people brag about 'being in the zone'. They don't know what the Hell being in the zone is about. I played in the NFL for 15 years and I was only in the zone that one time." - "Mean" Joe Greene on the 1974 playoff victory over Oakland

    Steve Smith also (erroneously) ripped Josh Rosen for being unprofessional. So...

    I'll never forget Steve Smith's beef with Mike Mitchell all because of a hit, although the hit wasn't from Mitchell but from Lawrence Timmons.

    Can't blame Smith for not going after Timmons, he was a bad man.
