Steve Smith doesn’t like divisional rivals.
We saw it time and time again when the veteran wide receiver was a member of the Carolina Panthers, with infamous dust-ups with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib (that eventually spilled over when Talib when was in New England) come to mind.
Smith’s also one of the NFL’s most outspoken characters, so he’s a natural fit for TV. ESPN smartly decided to bring in the Baltimore Ravens wideout for some playoff analysis, and when asked for his prediction for Saturday night’s game between two AFC North rivals — Cincinnati and Pittsburgh — Smith answered pretty much how you’d expect.
