Steeler's Guarantee Misguided
What, exactly, was Anthony Smith thinking?
The young safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers felt the need to come out and publicly guarantee a victory when his teams plays the New England Patriots on Sunday in Foxborough, Mass.
The Patriots are unbeaten but have had some vulnerabilities on display lately in narrow victories over the less-than-imposing Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots defense looked particularly unimpressive, and both the Eagles and Ravens were able to put pressure on New England quarterback Tom Brady and limit the effectiveness of wide receiver Randy Moss with physical play.
The Steelers have the sort of club that can take advantage of those flaws if the Patriots don't improve their level of play considerably Sunday.
So why go out of your way to get the Patriots' attention?
As Brady told reporters Thursday: "Well done is better than well said."
