Shaun Smith vs. Mack remind us of painful days

Shaun Smith has been called many names throughout his playing career. He’s been called a loafer, a trash-talker and he’s been called the Hamburglar (you can see why in this piece).

But one thing he’ll insist that he’s not: that is a nutcracker.

That was the accusation made last year by Browns center Alex Mack and 49ers tackle Anthony Davis in back-to-back weeks when they said Smith grabbed … well … um … you see … OK …  their junk (you can see the latter incident in the video below).

"I don't think he should be able to do that," Mack said at the time. "I'm still fired up about it."

And the next week, Davis had this reaction: “He tried to feel me. That’s weird, right?”

Not weird enough, apparently, to pay a fine or be disciplined in any way whatsoever, and now that Smith and the Titans will face Mack and the Browns in Cleveland, the subject of how testy Smith plays has returned.

“You can’t believe everything you hear,” Smith told the Tennessean. “The league sorted it all out -- no fine.”

Grabbing dudes wasn’t the only nefarious activity in which Smith allegedly participated during his Browns career. He supposedly punched teammate Brady Quinn in the face, and less than a year later, he was released by coach Eric Mangini after getting into an altercation with Bryan Cox at practice.

But for Smith these days, everything is cool.

“I was a little bitter when they let me go because of the situation with the new regime, but I look at everything as funny now because (Mangini), and the situation with Brady Quinn, they aren’t there any more either,” Smith said. “So to me, I got the best of it. I got the last laugh at the end of the day.”
