Chiefs’ Alex Smith Upset Over Late Hit To Knees By Steelers

Published

on

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is none too pleased after being on the receiving end of a hit to the back of his knees from Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Mike Mitchell on Sunday.

Smith went off on a rant about the hit, pointed towards Mitchell after the game.

“Certainly when I got fired up, I thought [the hit] was pretty late,” said Smith (h/t ESPN), who was fired up after the hit.

“I mean, when you get hit in the back of your knee like that, I didn’t understand how that happened. Certainly guys falling, rushing the quarterback, I get it when it’s happening from the front and guys are trying hard. That one to me just seemed so weird to get hit that low coming from behind.”

Mitchell was penalized for roughing the passer on the play. Smith stated that he didn’t know if the hit was unintentional or not.

“I haven’t seen the play, so I couldn’t tell you,” Smith said. “Just fired up at the time.”

“In the same conference, we play a lot of games against each other,” Smith continued. “These guys have gotten the last three now. They’ve all been hard-fought. They’ve all been physical. Anytime, I feel like, we play each other, they’re physical games, intense. I don’t think anybody. … I think it’s just guys playing hard.”
