    I still don't know what he did to get that 2nd personal foul. It looked like the Ravens lineman was pushing him around then he gets knocked out of the picture

    The one thing I ask of Antonio Smith every week is to play smart, and he can't even do that. He's a highly unintelligent person.

    That said, that second personal foul was a horrible call.

    I only blamed him for 4 points.

    Antonio said he got caught head butting one of those guys pushing him after the play. It's one of those where the second guy always gets caught.

    I definitely do not have a problem with Antonio being aggressive. You'll never see a complaint from me. The timing is usually suspect, but you've got to take up for yourself & you've got to take up for your team.

    If we were a winning team, we wouldn't focus on this minutia

    A winning team wouldn't have dumb players making dumb penalties, TK.

    Winning teams get calls more often, or in this case do not get called for these antics.

    He was ticked because he was getting manhandled. The best players on winning teams don't get manhandled...

    In other words, we were going to lose anyway. Some of this is simply that Antonio Smith doesn't like to lose, which is forgivable.
