Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith made an appearance on a local Charlotte radio station and was asked why he was so mad at Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins. “When I go against the opponent I talk and I may say hey I beat you and any of that stuff. But I’m not going to Google a guy’s wife’s name and try to find out little things. It wasn’t just him, it was other guys on that defense that was saying it. And just to go to that extent. I talk mess and I love talking mess and that’s part of the game. But I would never walk up to a guy — first of all I don’t really know outside of watching him on video — and Google his wife’s name and her birthday and call her outside of her name and call that in the jest of sportsmanship or gamesmanship. That’s not my deal. I take that as clear disrespect. I feel like when you don’t respect somebody well there’s nothing much left. So if I don’t respect you and you don’t respect me there aren’t any rules, there aren’t any guidelines. I didn’t like that. Second of all, i’m 34 years old. You’re a couple of years older than my youngest son. We’re not on the same level.” Smith decided to take a parting shot at Jenkins to end the interview. “It sounds like he needs to wear some condoms. That’s what it sounds like he needs to wear.” Despite Smith’s comments,  he probably went to Google to look up some info on Jenkins.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
