Q: Did Anthony Smith have a lapse of bad judgment with his "I Guarantee we'll win!" comment or is he just completely off his rocker? Anybody that knows the Patriots knows that they love Bulletin Board material, and they honestly don't need any added motivation. Tomlin definitely needs to have a talk with Smith!

BOUCHETTE: You know the Patriots will have a field day with that comment. Guarantees are so pass?? that you would not think anyone would pay that much attention to them anymore. But think of the Steelers' reaction and that of their fans if, say, someone from the Cleveland Browns would have guaranteed a victory before their game in Heinz Field. I will make a guarantee of my own: I will guarantee the Patriots players and coaches have very little reaction to Smith's comments until after the game, and then only if they win.
