Smith admits he had a good day n Thursday.
“Yesterday wasn’t as good as I expected, but as far as the numbers, I just pick numbers,” Smith said for a secant ime. “Like I picked 57 at about 6:45 a.m. [Thursday] when I woke up to get treatment. Jeff Byers [backup center on injured reserve] said I should do 62. I said 57.
“So we played Rock-Paper-Scissors for 57 and I won. See, I have kids and he doesn’t. I’m well experienced for Rock-Paper-Scissors.”
