If Steve Smith actually walks away from the game after this season as planned, the NFL will lose one captivating ball of hate. The 36-year-old Ravens receiver treats talking trash like an art, and he was in the zone Sunday after catching his second touchdown of the game to give the Ravens a 24-21 lead with 3:56 to go.
At 0:20 of the clip, Smith conducts a brief review of the four players in the Bengals secondary. Most of it is easy to decipher:
Twenty-seven [Dre Kirkpatrick]: trash. Twenty-four [Adam Jones]: trash. Forty-three [George Iloka]: fuckboy. Twenty [Reggie Nelson]: ???
If any amateur lip-readers out there can figure out what Smith thought of Nelson, we’d love to know.
