Note to Anthony Smith…

December 11, 2007

Dear Anthony,

Next time you wish to guarantee a victory over the best team in NFL history, don’t. My experience at Foxboro was an absolute nightmare, and I place 120 percent of the blame on you. You, the one who promised me a Steelers’ victory, are the sole reason that the number one defense in the NFL, which hadn’t given up a play of over 40 yards all season long, gave up TWO monstrous, game-changing, team deflating touchdown passes of 63 and 56 yards.

“We’ve played against a lot better safeties than [Smith], I’ll tell you,” said Pats coach Bill Belichik after the game. “The safety play at that position was pretty inviting.”

Anthony, you might be the only person I know who could make me genuinely LAUGH AT THE WORDS COMING OUT OF BILL BELICHICK’S MOUTH…

I understand that your a, “competitor,” and hey, if you really feel like talking some trash to the media is going to fire you up, then do your thing. But just remember, if your going to open your mouth, you better not end up being the single weak link that holds back the best defense in the league. You single-handedly embarrassed the entire Steelers’ organization, and for that, we and all of Steeler Nation would just like to say, shut your (insert expletive of choice here) mouth.

Your biggest former fan,
Jake Seiner
