D & C reports: '"Of course it caused me some concern," Smith said about Buffalo's serious effort to land Phillips. "Maybe it sent a message to me that they aren't as happy with me as they need to be. I just took it upon myself not to worry about it. He's a great athlete, I can't take nothing from him, but I don't consider myself a slouch. Basically, it gave me some incentive to come out here and work hard and show them they don't need anybody else, that I'm the No. 1 man."'
