Yeah, that punch him in the mouth thing works real well, huh?
Smith was on his weekly radio show last night and said pretty much the same thing, although carefully worded to avoid any potential NFL backlash.
He basically said Incognito has been a POS everywhere he's been and obviously none of this surprises him at all. Incognito's first year surprised Smith, though, but mainly because Incognito had signed a contract with conditions to change his behavior. Smith thought he was being punk'd or something because Incognito was so out of character. Obviously, he was acting for his contract extension.
