Panthers Steve Smith rips Janoris Jenkins, claims he used Google to trash talk


Goodness gracious, I’m not sure today’s game between the St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers could have got anymore testy than it did.

From player ejections to scuffles from dancing near injured players, things were pretty tense. It didn’t help when Steve Smith, who was jawing with Rams defensive Janoris Jenkins all afternoon mocked up after scoring a touchdown.

Jenkins and Smith could be seen getting into each others face on the play prior to the touchdown, which followed with Smith pulling off an impressive move for the score. The juke sent Jenkins flying by Smith, who promptly pointed at Jenkins than began to dance like Deion Sanders and Ray Lewis. Why, you ask? Apparently Jenkins thinks he’s Deion Sanders, at least according to Smith who ripped the young defensive back in his postgame interview, suggesting he went to Google to find information about him so he could trash talk:

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.”

For those that missed Smith’s dance festivities, you can watch them here.
