Things got testy on the gridiron Sunday. The Carolina Panthers defeated the St. Louis Rams 30-15 but the trash talk continued long after the game was over.
Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith and Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins were in each others ear the entire game. Following a Cam Newton to Smith connection for a touchdown, Smith pointed at Jenkins and began to do a little dance.
Following the game, Smith had words for Jenkins including the statement that he planned to punch Jenkins in his F**king face if he sees him on the street.
Did you have any run-ins with him before? “No. What I don’t like is a young guy, comes in, obviously his first time ever using the internet and Google, and he Googles information about me, talks about my wife and stuff like that. That’s kind of some of the (B.S). I just don’t play with.”
What specifically was he saying? ”That’s all I’m going to say. I don’t play them games. When you try to take it personal like that, I don’t have any great humbling things to say. So he can take his (butt) back to St. Louis and watch the (expletive) film because I don’t play them games. And if I see him in the streets I’m going to punch him in his (expletive) mouth.
On your touchdown celebration, was that a little bit extra? “When you embarrass people you rub it in their face. When your dog (urinates) on the carpet, you rub it in his face.”
