Always be your number one fan. Even if you have some doubts, make sure no one will root more for you than you. Steve Smith takes that to heart, and he’s not even an active NFL player anymore.
During the pregame for Eagles-Panthers on Thursday Night Football, Bill Cowher casually asked Steve Smith who the best receiver on the field was going to be. Without hesitation, he answered with the only person he had complete confidence in:
Bill Cowher: Who's the best receiver on this field tonight, Steve Smith?
Steve Smith: HE'S SITTING RIGHT HERE
It doesn’t matter if Steve Smith is better than the likes of Kelvin Benjamin and Nelson Agholor. What matters is that Steve isn’t going to concede to anyone. While his reaction is a fairly strong one, he does has another level of confidence which is a lot meaner. Remember when he talked trashed to opposing defensive ends while he was on the sideline?
