Browns' Alex Mack: Chiefs' Shaun Smith grabbed my genitals

Browns center Alex Mack says Chiefs defensive lineman Shaun Smith did something dirty during Sunday’s game.

Very dirty.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Mack says Smith grabbed his genitals during a play near the end of the first half.

“I don’t think he should be able to do that,” said Mack of Smith. “I’m still fired up about it.”

Smith wasn’t flagged, but shortly after that Mack, still angry, was flagged for unnecessary roughness for jumping into a pile. That penalty was huge because it preceded a missed field goal for the Browns, who ended up losing 16-14.

So how does Smith answer the charges?

“I don’t have no comment,” Smith told the Associated Press. “I don’t recall doing anything like that. I’m not known for being a dirty player or anything like that, so I don’t know what that was all about.”

    A non-denial denial, followed by a deflection.
    Yep, he did it alright but its no surprise, we’ve all heard about the nightmares that go on in a pile.

    That sounds like a Greg Manusky play…
    You play the ball not the ….

    He was “fired up” about it?
    Well, at least he wasn’t “scared stiff”

  4. DoughBoyRAC says: Sep 21, 2010 8:21 AM

    Heh…it was actually Mangina giving him a reach-around…just like he is doing to Cleveland Browns fans everywhere.
    What a sorry excuse for a team…again!

    I have always wondered about those Chiefs players… Thats why Montana went their from San Francisco to KC to end his career.

    Shaun Smith is known as a baller.

  15. Jon says: Sep 21, 2010 8:45 AM

    Isn’t this the guy that decked Brady Quinn in the weight room in Cleveland? He absolutely DOES have a reputation as being a dirty (and lousy) player.

  16. jtm1023 says: Sep 21, 2010 8:51 AM

    If it was the Bills he was playing against, he may have enjoyed it more cause they REALLY SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Heywood Jablowme says: Sep 21, 2010 8:55 AM

    “I don’t have no comment.”
    So then Shaun, what’s your comment?

  18. Matthew Moe says: Sep 21, 2010 8:57 AM

    The play in question happened at 2:00 left in the 2nd quarter. Browns ran left out of the wildcat formation. Alex Mack cut two guys including Shaun Smith. Mack lands on his stomach. Shaun Smith on lands on top of him. As Mack rolls over (away from the camera) you see Shaun Smith reach under Mack near his groin. Mack responded by throwing a punch at Shaun Smith. Pretty obvious that it happened as Mack says.

  19. Florioslovechild says: Sep 21, 2010 9:04 AM

    I always knew PFT would find a way to talk about one man grabbing another man’s unit.

  20. CaptainObvious says: Sep 21, 2010 9:04 AM

    Hey Mack, did Shaun at least offer to buy you dinner?

  21. Bob Sacamano says: Sep 21, 2010 9:04 AM

    So does Smith get credited with a sack?

  22. njhitman says: Sep 21, 2010 9:07 AM

    Shortly after the game Alex Mack and Shaun Smith were seen leaving a near by motel . Even tho Shaun Smith was dressed in drag they were still spoted leaving the room together hold each others genitals more on this story on TMZ

  23. biggredd says: Sep 21, 2010 9:07 AM

    Jesse Jackson should cut Shaun Smith’s nuts off.

  24. Dapollock says: Sep 21, 2010 9:09 AM

    Leaned that move from Brady Quinn.

  25. CaptainObvious says: Sep 21, 2010 9:09 AM

    “..but shortly after that Mack, still angry, was flagged for unnecessary roughness for jumping into a pile.”
    he was just trying to hide his woody.

  26. RELISH says: Sep 21, 2010 9:10 AM

    Shaun Smith: “I thought I was getting a good vibe from Mack.”
    Alex Mack: ” No DOES NOT MEAN YES!”
    Shaun Smith: ” Not the way you were looking at me.”

  27. Norrec says: Sep 21, 2010 9:12 AM

    This seems to be common place. You should take a look at some interviews of d line and o line players talking about what happens in the pile.

  28. HarrisonHits says: Sep 21, 2010 9:12 AM

    Um, don’t these players wear cups that should make it impossible to grab the goodies ?

  29. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Sep 21, 2010 9:16 AM

    If Shaun Smith did the same thing to Kordell Stewart KS would respond “WHOO HOO HOO!”

  30. dabarber says: Sep 21, 2010 9:17 AM

    You have obviously never played football pretty boy.
    Anything goes in the pile–biting, scratching, grabbing, pulling, pinching.

  31. bow_to_the_pats says: Sep 21, 2010 9:17 AM

    Every year in training camp, The Sporting News has asked players to name the worst thing they have seen in a pileup. The answer is always the same: “I’ve seen guys have their nuts grabbed.”
    It’s just that Alex Mack is the first player to bitch about it publicly.
    Translation: Get over it.
    There’s a reason why the Browns suck every single year, because of crap like this.

  32. PAJoe says: Sep 21, 2010 9:19 AM

    It’s just a preview for next year. Welcome to the National Fairy League. Elton John now hands the ball to Ricky Martin. Up the middle, stopped by George Michael……

  33. chargerrich says: Sep 21, 2010 9:21 AM

    Chefs Golf Pro Haley told Smith to SACK him… I guess did as told.

  34. JoeSixPack says: Sep 21, 2010 9:28 AM

    Yes Alex – players do all kinds of things in a pile to try to get the ball or get you mad.
    Unlike you, the other players in the NFL are smart enough not to be a girly whiner about it or let it goad them into a costly penalty.
    If you have any more questions about how things work in the NFL let us know, we’ll be here.

    Playing for the Browns, having somebody grab your genitals in a game is about as good as you can hope for in a season…

    he’s just hurt that smith hasn’t called him back yet. he really thought smith was the right one.

  54. twinkletoes says: Sep 21, 2010 11:09 AM

    Isn’t this backwards? The offensive lineman is supposed to grab the defensive lineman’s junk, like Andre Gurode constantly did to Albert Haynesworth, not too coincidentally during the now infamous head stomping game.

  55. extreme469 says: Sep 21, 2010 11:31 AM

    “I don’t have no comment,” > that’s all you need to know about this idiot.

  56. philcommander says: Sep 21, 2010 11:34 AM

    Alex Mack is lucky because Shauns original plan was to teabag him.

  57. robert ethen says: Sep 21, 2010 11:59 AM

    Shaun says WTF does Mack expect wearing those tight pants and bending over all the time with his ass in the air. “Don’t play coy and innocent, there Al.”.

  58. robert ethen says: Sep 21, 2010 12:03 PM

    Shaun wanted access to “The Secret World Of Alex Mack”.
    “He kinda reminded me of the older sister on the show,”, Smith admitted sheepishly. “She was so hot, I just had to check.”.

  59. Happster says: Sep 21, 2010 1:26 PM

    Don’t have no comment? Then, pray tell, what is your comment? With English like that, god help you in the work force when your ball-grabbin days are over.

  60. timo says: Sep 21, 2010 2:30 PM

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Not true. Tomlinson bitched about getting molested in the pile during Raider games when he was with San Diego. And in case it comes up, Steve Wisniewski used to step on John Randle’s feet, and Bill Romanowski wasn’t above chopping a guy in the throat when nobody was looking. Be thankful for your gentle life.

  63. DingyHarry says: Sep 22, 2010 11:28 AM

    It would be nice if the Browns played like they had some of the gentials in question during the second halves of their games.
    I also see the rumor about Kevin Kolb possibly being traded to the Browns. If I am Heckert, I make the deal sending either McCoy or Wallace to the Eagles along Harrison and get it done. Give them a nice package and make it happen.
    Delhomme is a one year starter at best and you can lay odds he is going to get injured again. Wallace didnt look much better and its not like he was the 1969 KC Chiefs.
    Regardless, I would not be shocked to see the Brownies go into the break 0-7 and Mr. Mangini on a bus back to CT.
