Steve Smith to Jake Delhomme: 'I Never Liked You as a Quarterback'

Awesome video of Steve Smith consoling his QB during Sunday’s game after Delhomme threw one of his four INTs:

For those who can’t watch video, the conversation on the bench:

Delhomme: “I apologize, bro.”

Smith: “Hey, I know you feel like crap. I mean, you’re not a very handsome guy anyway, so. But, the performer, the quarterback … I never really liked you as a quarterback. But as a person, that’s who I love. I love you as a person.”

↵

Delhomme: “I appreciate it. [Inaudible] I just didn’t get enough on that damn ball. I knew where I was throwing it, I just threw it too high.”

↵
↵

So, yeah, clearly Smith was just trying to lighten the mood and cheer up his QB. OR WAS HE? (DUN DUN DUUUUN!) PFT wonders if maybe Smith was “dead serious.”

↵

Sigh.

Update: The NFL has taken down the video, but you can watch it here.
