Trash talk can be used to get into somebody’s head, or to get them fired up. And for Steve Smith this weekend, it did a little of both. The Panthers won over the Rams this weekend, thanks in no small part to Steve Smith’s five receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. But it was the talk from the Rams’ Janoris Jenkins that really fired him up.
It’s not clear what Jenkins said, but Smith said it was about his wife, so let your imagination run wild. Another example of trash talk gone too far in New York this weekend: a fight between two women turned into a brawl, and eventually, a guy popped one of the women. Not cool.
Of course, it doesn’t have to go that far to be too far, but what’s your definition of when trash talk goes too far?
