Prior to joining the Ravens during this past offseason, wide receiver Steve Smith was already a great trash talker. He is, of course, the guy who yelled "ICE UP, SON!" at then-Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib after a game last season.
But during a recent interview with Comcast SportsNet, the former Panthers wideout proved that he's become an even better trash talker since leaving Carolina for Baltimore. Just listen to what he had to say about being a Ravens player.
"When I look in the defensive meeting room and I see 'Play Like a Raven, Baltimore Ravens, We Build Bullies,' that's what I'm talking about," he said. "When I think of a Baltimore Raven—and I'm a Baltimore Raven—what I think of is we go in there, we take your lunch box, we take your sandwich, we take your juice box, we take your applesauce, and we take your spork and we break it. And we leave you with an empty lunch. That's the Baltimore Raven way, that's the bully way, and that's football."
Just to recap: Smith says that the Ravens will take your lunch box, your sandwich, your juice box, your applesauce, and your spork. To which we say…NOT THE SPORK!
Seriously, though, how much fun is it going to be to watch Smith in Baltimore? This guy is playing with an entire bag of chips on his shoulder right now. And something tells us he's not going to let up until the season ends.
