Well this is it, boys and girls, the amazing ride we’ve had over the last three seasons with Steve Smith Sr. in purple and black will come to an end on Sunday. We all know Steve was supposed to retire at the end of last season, before injuring his achillies and coming back for another year. And we all knew that this would be Senior’s final year, but there was still that small bit of hope we were all holding out that he’d never retire.
Steve Smith was the ultimate Raven. A hard nosed, hard working bad ass, who no one wanted to fuck with. He instantly became my favorite player on the team, and by all accounts he’s a good dude off the field. This one hurts, and I hope he gets into broadcasting, because I’m not done with Steve Smith Sr.
