During the Ravens loss to the Patriots on Monday night, Steve Smith yelled at his coaches to, and I quote, “start giving me the ball, motherfucker” and then proceeded to tell the Patriots fans that all of their mothers can “suck his dick.” Throughout his 16-year career, Smith has been known to get a little testy, but things really got particularly fiery at a Ravens practice today.
The outburst came in the first hour of practice, after Joe Flacco overthrew Smith on consecutive deep passes along the sideline. Smith ripped off his helmet and threw it about 15 yards toward the end zone. He then booted a football that was on the ground.
Smith walked to the corner of the indoor facility and sat by himself. Flacco and the rest of the offense never stopped, continuing the passing drills without Smith.
“The reason I did it is because I wanted to,” Smith told ESPN.
Sitting in front of his locker, Smith looked at reports about his eruption at practice on his phone.
“According to you guys, you already know,” he said. “Why am I going to comment if you already know? … I don’t have to explain anything to you. I can choose to do what I want to.”
Smith, who is 37, told his coach John Harbaugh that this will be his final year in the league. It’s possible he’s starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and is FREAKIN OUT, MAN!
