Bojangles' honors WR Steve Smith with 'Ice up, son' campaign
On Monday night, Panthers WR Steve Smith was asked about Pats CB Aqib Talib, who left the game with a hip injury. His response: 'Ice up, son.'
Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith can talk trash. He can also back it up. The latest evidence came Monday night when he got into the head of Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib. Before Talib left the game with a hip injury, Smith racked up four receptions for 62 yards in the Panthers' 24-20 victory. (You may have heard something about how the game ended.)
Afterwards, Smith was asked about his matchup with Talib.
“These kind of games I love to have, physical,” he told Fox Sports 1. “Some guys aren’t built for the durability of physical games. You see who finished and you see who didn’t.”
When NFL Network's Albert Breer put that same question to Smith, he offered this: “I don't know. You gonna ask him, because he didn't finish the game. Ice up, son. Ice up!"
And that little piece of awesomeness led to this:
