Say hello to “The Deep Freeze”

Shaun Smith, Tony Moeaki AP

Fantasy owners of Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles have grown accustomed to seeing Thomas Jones “vulture” touchdowns away.

On Sunday, coach Todd Haley came up with a more exciting way to steal a touchdown.

325-pound defensive tackle Shaun Smith plunged in for a score after a six-yard Charles run set the ball up at the one-yard line.  We love the second effort.  Has a new William “Refrigerator”  Perry been born?

“Right now, they call me, ‘The Deep Freeze,’ ” Smith told the Kansas City Star after the game. “We worked on the play and they just happened to give it to me.”   [PFT Planet: I think we can come up with a better nickname.] 

Smith has previously been in the news this year for being accused of grabbing other players’ junk.   Now he’s part of a defensive-heavy goal-line package that also includes linebacker Mike Vrabel.
“That’s a big ’ol boy back there running the ball, isn’t it?” Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop said. “That was neat. It definitely fires up our team.”

    In a term borrowed from the “other” football, Shaun has become known as “Dead Ball” Smith.
    When he lines up behind the ball, opponents huddle together, standing on their tiptoes, holding their hands over their crotch.

    A powerful 325 pounder, Smith hurts people when he gets his hands on the ball.

    Haley was especially pleased with Shaun’s ball retention skills. “He’s got a vise like grip”, beamed Todd.

    When Shaun came into the game with the ball near the goal line, everyone was shouting “O.K., guys, protect the ball! Protect the ball!”

    On the other team.

  17. hobartbaker says: Nov 29, 2010 4:22 PM

    “Hand Off The Ball!” Smith?

  18. hobartbaker says: Nov 29, 2010 4:26 PM

    Staring directly at Smith, the QB barked out “Reverse wedgie! Up the gut! Hut, hut!”.

    The opposing defense scattered, leaving a gaping hole for Shaun, but he slipped in a puddle of urine.

  23. mobuccsfan says: Nov 29, 2010 5:38 PM

    Some really clever names here but@contract…that is probably the best! Too funny.

  24. steelcurtain9 says: Nov 29, 2010 5:45 PM

    shaun “twig and berries” smith

    or

    shaun “clutch” smith
