Check out this awesome interview with Lee Smith

The topic title needs some TLC... It is too generic. The topic starter can edit the topic title line to make it more appropriate.

 

Thank you.

Best part was when he was talking about Sweeney amd Knox and he says....."I got four kids, I don't want turds over at my house"

Very impressive. I think we see now why the Bills signed him. He is a true professional that will mentor and invest in the younger guys around him. A family man that is not afraid to speak of his values. And if I got in a bar fight, I'd choose him for my side.

Adjust your meds.  Usually downward, but there are exceptions to that generality.

I got to talk to Lee for about 15 minutes at Bills training camp a few years ago (Marrone's first year as coach) and he impressed me then as a genuine, down to earth guy who loves to play footfall and loves his teammates.  I love the influence he seems to have on a young TE group and I think he's a great blocker in the run game, but watching him play sometimes drives me crazy.  Between the pre-snap penalties, the holding calls and all the pushing and shoving he does after the whistle (for which he is going to get called one of these days), he really needs to clean up his game.   All in all, glad he's a Bill this year!

Like I said I like the guy I just thought him saying "human beings" 5 times was a bit odd, other than that it was a great interview and I guess that made it a bit more interesting lmao

If you did you'd be a great "human being"

Definitley better focus than clay 🤲

MCD has these guys fully bought in its great to see!! 

well he is differentiating them from the solar lizard aliens Zay told him about.

This is the type of veteran you want around rookies like Knox, Sweeney, Oliver, even guys like duke and josh. These young guys have no clue what an nfl locker room is like and to instill this type of brotherhood mentality in an nfl locker room where egos are HUGE is important. I give McDermott and beane a lot of credit for bringing in guys like this

Iisten I love that the guy caught a TD and have nothing against him but watch this Bills Live episode. He says "Human beings" way too often lmao it's odd. It's worth a watch it made me laugh just figured I'd share....

 

I love the video.  Great find, OP.  (Agree with Chandler and Rob's House that the title needs fixin'.  It's not about Lee Smith weird, it's just a great interview)

 

He seems like a great addition to the team - solid pro dedicated to mentoring the young guy.  LOL when he said Knox and Sweeney are great guys: "That's important, I don't want Turds hanging out at my house getting to know my daughters".  He needs to dial back the penalties, but he acknowledged that.

 

He refers to Allen as a "big, strong, competitive man that refuses to get tackled".  He also referenced the "person that he is".  To refer to teammates, he used "dude" and "guy" a lot. 

 

I think at times, he used "human beings" as a PG-euphemism for what he likely actually calls them in the locker room - as when he was talking about Allen not "running head first into other human beings".    Other than a few instances like that, I didn't hear what you're hearing.

The guy is a leader. Perfect guy to have around to mentor the younger "human beings" on the team.

 

I loved this exchange he had with Allen from the Bengals game.

Hits to the head all those years could have something to do with it.

My honest thoughts on him, he has been a battering ram for his career(just seemed kind of punch drunk in the interview) Seems like a great guy and a team guy definitley a process guy

Didn't Duke get kicked off of a team and all but ruin his career and life because of a bar fight? I think he punched four people. Just sayin.'

I liked that interview. I still hate his stupid false start penalties - but can see why the coaches want him around. He has fully embraced the process and appears to be a glue guy. At least it explains why he is still around the team (and he is the team's 3rd string Tackle). And he appears to be the recipient of JA's first touch pass touchdown (maybe there was another last season - but cant think of one).

I know, quite ironic that Lee used that analogy regarding Duke twice now.  He said something similar in postgame.  I think he also broke someone's jaw in that fight and while he won it he lost his NCAA football career at the same time.  It sent him on a 4 year jaunt through professional football purgatory to earn his way back to a real NFL game.   It's good to have a team full of guys that can win their battle, hungry and humble as McD says.

I'm ok with him as a person. He's got a genuine care for his teammates and has bought in to "the process". He just needs to clean up the penalties. 

I'm ok with him as a person too.... just keep him on the sidelines during football games.😀
