Steve Smith to Josh Norman: "This Isn't Coastal Carolina"

Sounds like he's letting everyone know not to ride the kid's coattails too hard just yet.

Smith had a couple more words Friday when asked about Norman's competitiveness.

“For a young guy, he's coming out and he's playing well. But as far as how much swagger and he loves to compete, I look at it like all the other veterans – May and June you just kind of cruise a little bit just to get through,” Smith said during a break at his camp.

“Once late July, August comes, he's going to learn very quickly this isn't Coastal Carolina,” Smith added. “I look forward to camp. I hope he looks forward to camp, just like all the other DBs because the first week is never a good day for them when we've got this offense with Chud (offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski). It's going to be early and often and real quick.”

Yeah, I think it's safe to assume Smith is mad because he got locked down in the endzone.

Reel the young kid back in. Good.

And hopefully the fanbase who has already pegged him as the starter and reincarnation of Dick Lane.

agreed.

other players wouldn't be mentioning him without being asked about him either.

he's impressing quite a bit.

I love the fact that it even requires a comment from Steve Smith at all. Whens the last time you heard him make a comment about a rookie DB???????

This is good... Really good!
