SMITH TO THE RESCUE

PACES BRONCOS OVER PATRIOTS

DENVER’S BEST ROD SMITH

A Great Receiver

is hard to Stop

ask Bill Belichick

who’s on Vacation now

because of Rod Smith

as much as any Bronco

One of the dramatic moments of the NFL Playoffs so far the ‘shocking’ elimination of the SuperBowl Champ New England Patriots from reaching the ultimate Glory of a Threepeat, can’t be completely attributed to Veteran Wide Receiver Rod Smith but if Bill Belichick could go back in Time just as far as last Saturday don’t be surprised if the Broncos player he would make disappear is …

Rod Smith who

devastated New England

With all his many Moves

Bill Belichick

could not stop Smith

Smith’s game stats are as follows: 96 very important yards on 6 receptions including a crucial Second Half TD reception from Jake Plummer. And it should not be Surprising to learn Smith is the Broncos All Time Receiving Leader.

His was one of those inauspicious beginnings and a lesson for all those NFL wannabes who suffer the ultimate NFL humiliation NOT being Drafted. That was Rod Smith’s fate back in 1994. When 222 players were Drafted and 29 of them Wide Receivers but not Rod Smith. It didn’t stop him he still convinced the Broncos to give him a Chance and Denver has never ever regretted it.

Get this

Rod Smith is the All Time NFL Leading Receiver

among players who were never Drafted !

With Smith’s 11 years under his belt all in Denver he has 797 career receptions for a total of 10,877 yards receiving. Smith has Receptions for the Broncos in 108 consecutive games. Another team record.

This season Smith has 85 catches for 1105 yards and 6 Touchdowns and has been chosen for his 3rd Pro Bowl. His stats may leave him a bit behind young Larry Fitzgerald, but Smith’s heroics have gotten Denver to the AFC Championship game while Fitzgerald went home.

We could go on and on about Rod Smith now 35 and by the way he being an important part of 2 previous Denver Broncos SuperBowl Champion teams but why bother you should have gotten the Message by now, and Smith himself is known for his low key personality and lack of Bragging.

What’s most important now

is remember to keep your eyes

on Rod Smith this Sunday

against Pittsburgh

Smith might

make all the Difference

if Steelers Coach Bill Cowher

proves no better than Belichick

stopping Rod Smith.

STEELERS COACH BILL COWHER ” STOP TALKING ABOUT SMITH ……

I’M GETTING NIGHTMARES”
