Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith had a 100-yard pick-six last year vs. the Bills. His pick-six Thursday night against Jason Campbell and the Bengals wasn’t quite as exciting but it was still a very nice play. And Smith jazzed it up a little by adding the Deion Sanders tribute at the end.
Oh the Deion dance. Very nice. Very retro. Well-done Sean Smith. Entertainment value is important in the preseason. Keep those viewers tuning in. Plus Deion will be sure to give you a shout out on NFL Network or wherever the hell he’s working now.
And now about that throw by Jason Campbell. Let’s just say, AJ McCarron was very happy to see that. McCarron can’t even practice or play right now thanks to a sore arm, but if Campbell keeps throwing junk like that around, McCarron won’t need to play to lock down the #2 job in Cincinnati. He’ll get it by default.
Cincy has gotta be hoping nothing happens to Andy Dalton. Because behind Dalton there’s the duck-throwing Campbell and the sore-armed rookie McCarron (whose arm wasn’t that strong even before it was sore). Cincy is very glad to have a great offensive line, because if Dalton takes a few shots and has to go out, it could get ugly fast. Take care of that guy, Cincinnati.
