Fred Smoot, whom no one likes, says no one likes Emmitt Smith

NFL Preseason - Washington Redskins v Tennessee Titans Getty Images

When it comes to the modern NFL, Fred Smoot falls into roughly the same category as Marcus Vick.  Sure, Smoot had a much more prolific pro football career than Mike Vick’s younger brother.  Then again, anyone who ever actually suited up for an NFL game had a much more prolific pro football career than Marcus Vick.

Still, Smoot and Marcus Vick are currently non-factors in the NFL.  But they both are capable of saying or doing things that register on the football media’s radar screen.  Marcus did it earlier today, and now Smoot has.

According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, the man who managed one rep in the 225-pound bench at the Scouting Combine and had a unique, to say the least, role in the Love Boat fiasco teed off on the NFL’s all-time leading rusher during a recent podcast.

Nobody that meets Emmitt Smith likes Emmitt Smith,” Smoot said. “Have you ever heard anybody say, hey man, I met that Emmitt Smith and I really love him?  Nobody likes Emmitt Smith.  I don’t know if he’s just a jerk because he’s a Cowboy.  I don’t know.  He be rubbing people the wrong way.”

For the record, I met that Emmitt Smith and I really love him.  He’s funny.  Engaging.  Friendly.  He’s the exact opposite of what I thought he’d be based on his work with ESPN, which makes me convinced that the producers at ESPN had no idea how to use him properly.

The next time I see Emmitt Smith, I’ll have to ask him what he thinks of Fred Smoot.  Maybe Emmitt will say, “Nobody that meets Fred Smoot likes Fred Smoot.  Have you ever heard anybody say, hey man, I met that Fred Smoot and I really love him?  Nobody likes Fred Smoot.  I don’t know if he’s just a jerk because he’s a Redskin.  I don’t know.  He be rubbing people the wrong way.”

Or maybe Emmitt will simply say, “Who in the hell is Fred Smoot?”

    I remember when he signed with the Vikings. Big mouth, annoying, overpaid, consistently getting burned.. CUT. Next.

    Not saying Emmitt Smith is a jerk or not, but, a guy who heads what is currently the most read website in all of the NFL is not going to get Emmitt’s Jerkface—if he’s got one. I’m just saying…

    Fred who? Emmitt was always a respectable player, had great sportsmanship, and a ton of heart. How can you hate on Emmitt?

  5. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Jul 11, 2013 5:43 PM

    Don’t listen to him. Every point Fred makes is automatically Smoot.

  6. mutohasaposse says: Jul 11, 2013 5:43 PM

    Don’t know any teammates that ever bashed Smoot. He was always well-liked in the locker rooms he played in.

    Chalk one up for a “like Smoot.”

  9. dolphins1121 says: Jul 11, 2013 5:46 PM

    I am from Pensacola (Emmitt’s hometown.) I worked for the airlines while in college, and I have come into contact with Smith several times and I can say with great confidence that the man is not a pleasurable person. He never smiles, and I heard stories of him charging kids for autographs (I can’t vouch for that, but it would not surprise me.) Other local stars such as Roy Jones Jr and Derrick Brooks are ALWAYS a pleasure. They talk to the locals, and are constantly signing autographs. I have also met numerous players who were flying into Pensacola to go to the Andrew’s Institute, and they were all engaging and generally awesome. I agree with Fred. Emmitt’s a jerk.

  10. dolphins1121 says: Jul 11, 2013 5:47 PM

    Ask any native Pensacolian; Emmitt is a jerk.

  11. shogunassasin30 says: Jul 11, 2013 5:48 PM

    What do you mean “not use him properly” at ESPN? He was paid to speak, and he wasn’t articulate to say the least. The thing that you are required to do on TV is speak and analyze. What role would you suggest he work in to hide these deficiencies that are quite vital to the successful career as a TV analyst because I would really like to know. Or did you just simply see it as a free shot at ESPN being that you work for a competitor.

  12. dugganmt says: Jul 11, 2013 5:51 PM

    The love boat doesn’t forget who Smoot is.

  13. whatjusthapped says: Jul 11, 2013 5:52 PM

    You got to hand it to Fred Smoot, he now only finagled big contract money out of the Vikings for very little production on the field (actually that seems to be par for the Vikings whenever they sign a FA, despite their fan base who thinks every move is just the one needed to propel them toward a Superbowl), he left behind a legacy (Love Boat) wouldn’t soon be forgotten. Its not often you see a FA make such an impression on a franchise after playing (and in some games, not playing because he was benched) for just two seasons.

    But then again, its the Vikings were are talking about.

  14. historyisyourfriend says: Jul 11, 2013 5:52 PM

    I don’t know Emmitt, nor do I know Smoot. But based off this article I can freely say I don’t like Smoot. If you don’t like someone yourself, fine. But when you go speaking for others saying he “be rubbing them the wrong way”, either say those names or just shut it. Mostly this sounds like Smoot has an issue with Emmitt and a cup overflowing with sour grapes.

  15. viksminfan says: Jul 11, 2013 5:54 PM

    Fred Smoot is an expert on rubbing people the wrong way.

  16. thesmartestmanever says: Jul 11, 2013 5:54 PM

    here’s what I know… Emmit always made everything about himself. remember the hold outs? remember refusing to retire until he broke walter payton’s record. classless. he was washed up and should have been happy with what he accomplished in Dallas. that being said Smoot’s kind of a jerk for calling him out, that’s for the fans to do

  17. dccowboyfan says: Jul 11, 2013 5:56 PM

    I met Emmitt at his shop in Pensacola and he was awesome. He even donated a signed ball for a charity auction for us. I have met hundreds of pro football players as a photographer. Emmitt was one of the, if not the coolest I’ve ever met. I also met Mr. Smoot, not impressed. He shouldn’t even be mentioned in the same sentence as Emmitt. He’s a Totally classless, Lubed Rubber Ding Ding Boy kinda like a Water Boy just sleazy.
    What a Joke, as if any body cares what he thinks about the greatest running back in history.

  18. Grulks says: Jul 11, 2013 5:57 PM

    I know one has three rings, a nice yellow/gold HOF jacket, tons of on field records for his position, and pretty much everyone remembers his jersey number. The other constantly had off field problems, no rings, no HOF, was cut twice, and has an arrest/conviction record for a few charges. And I seriously doubt many people could tell you his number for either team, without looking it up.

    If the latter is saying ANYTHING about the former, I certainly wouldnt pay it much attention.

  19. craniator says: Jul 11, 2013 5:59 PM

    Perhaps Smoot is right , and Emmitt really do ” . . . be rubbing people the wrong way.”

  23. knowmewell85 says: Jul 11, 2013 6:04 PM

    Fred Smoot “he be” talking too much SMH.

    At an early age I learned to never trust anyone who says “he be”.

    was that hard to type while using your hand on emmitt?

  25. lightcleric says: Jul 11, 2013 6:07 PM

    The only time I’ve ever heard of Fred Smoot was years ago when Chad Johnson talked about him on his list of corners he was going to face that season.

    Like everyone else, I don’t care enough to know how that turned out.

    “Fred Smoot, whom no one likes..”

    I’m sure someone likes him. Of course no one on THIS site likes him, Florio. It’s your site— a place where you pander to bitter guys who hate pretty much all athletes.

  28. tfbuckfutter says: Jul 11, 2013 6:09 PM

    To be fair, even Emmitt will admit that at some times he can be pretty unpersonifiable.

    Dumb. Can’t say anything about emmitt one way or the other but anyone who knows Smoot, knows he was well-liked by his teammates and the fans. Runs his mouth, hence the “mouth from the south” nickname but he’s funny and friendly. Vick? Seriously?

  31. beelicker says: Jul 11, 2013 6:17 PM

    I heard Emmitt Smith said in his a friendly way that Smoot should just change his name to Fred Nonfactor & move on

  32. sterling7 says: Jul 11, 2013 6:18 PM

    As a Viking 4life since 1968 I remember when Fred Smoot was signed, he wasn’t and isn’t worth the hair off a dog’s a$$. What a worthless loudmouth, hated to tackle, couldn’t cover his mouth when he coughed let alone cover receivers and it’s a wonder he even made any NFL team. I don’t know what he is more of a jerk, an assclown or just a complete waste of time………………………..maybe all three!

  33. rhodesclosed29 says: Jul 11, 2013 6:20 PM

    I couldn’t stand emmitt smith either. I remember watching the cowboys as a young kid, aikman carried that team inside the redzone, then the cowboys would run run run, finally emit would cross the goaline, literally at the goaline and fkin celebrate like he just broke off a 50yard TD…smh.

    Shut up, Fred. I am a lifelong Skins fan and hate the Cowboys but love Emmitt Smith. I’d rather hang out with him than you any day of the week – and I’ll bet I speak for most WASHINGTON fans.

  37. tinkletinkleonyourstar says: Jul 11, 2013 6:45 PM

    in all seriousness, what college did smoot come from?
    seeing the above posts that put in pring how he actually talks are freaking funny.
    one can only assume that he wrote the same way he talks which seems like it would have resulted in a failing grade pretty much all the time?
    maybe if i see him sometime i’ll ax him.

  38. 84smooninlambeaunevergetsold says: Jul 11, 2013 6:49 PM

    I don’t think Smoot has anything nice to say about anybody, or anything, for that matter.

    In fact, I actually forgot he existed until I saw this..

    You were such an impact on our te….

    Good luck with your football caree….

    I too do not understand what you mean about ESPN not using ES correctly. He was an analyst hired to present insights and viewpoints about the game, strategies and players. As a commentator he had a magnificent grasp of the obvious and he tortured the English language more regularly than ANY of the former players and one-time “student athletes” ESPN has ever hired, and that is SAYING something.

    Hathaway had just been released from prison for killing the horse when the deer incident happened. He is appealing his conviction on the deer charge.

    /

    Perhaps you need to get your memory checked. This is he most ridiculous/inaccurate assessment i have heard in a long time.

    Smith sure didn’t break career rushing yards, or lead the league 3 times in rushing yards/season by pretty much only running inside the red zone. He certainly didn’t rack up all those 100+ yards per game listed on wikipedia that way. You make it seem like Aikman threw to open up the middle, when in reality, it was absolutely the opposite. smith running rampant over the middle is what opened up passing lanes for Mike, Novacek, and Harper.

    There is a huge difference between Fred Smoot and Marcus Vick. Fred Smoot is a regular on sports talk radio in the DC market. He was the “mouth from the south” as a player and now he gets paid to talk sports and use that trash talk he was known for. Fred Smoot may be a “has been” but Marcus Vick is a “never was”. But most importantly, whether he is right or wrong about Emitt Smith, I’m sure he is generating a lot if calls when he is on the radio next time and I’m sure his webcast is getting a ton of hits from the publicity. Smart move for someone who’s paid to talk sports after his football career.

  67. lagg1 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:00 PM

    No wonder Smoot doesn’t like Emmitt. During Smith’s 13 seasons in Dallas from 1990 to 2002, Smith faced the Redskins 24 times. In those 24 games, he had a total of 528 rushing attempts for 2431 yards and 23 TDs. That’s an average of 22 attempts, 101.3 yards, and .96 touchdowns per game. He gained at least 100 yards in 12 of those 24 games. In fact he ran better against Washington than the other teams he faced as a Cowboy.

    I guess Freddie was tired of looking at Smith’s rear end as Emmitt flew by him.

    Regardless of whether Smoot is making comments that are untrue…

    It is unfair to compare a 9 year veteran to Michael Vick;s douchey little brother who was barely a speck in the NFL and didn’t even last a season or even a game.

    And I have no opinion on Emmit’s personality…but he is a bad TV personality…ESPN or not.

    At the end of the day, Emmitt, like all other players wasn’t getting paid to be liked. He was getting paid to play, just like Smoot. Emmitt lived up to his side of the bargain, and Smoot didn’t. End of story.

    For as much as people from Minnesota seem to hate the guy, DC fans have mostly loved the guy. He was always open with the fans and the press.

    Smoots from a different generation of Redskins, like Cooley, they learned from Joe Gibbs’ and D Green to HATE the Cowboys.

    Not true. Fred Smoot likes Fred Smoot. And Fred Smoot likes his own big mouth. If he wants to say dumb things, let him say dumb things, it makes him happy, and he’s not hurting anybody.

    Honestly, he seems to make a lot of you happy by giving you new material to rip on him for. Much like Waka Flocka Flame, I’m very content to sit back, let him be an idiot and then laugh about it.

    Moreover, a comparison to Marcus Vick is blatantly unfair. Smoot was an All-American in college, Vick was dismissed from college for drug use/being an entitled prick. Smoot talks too much, Vick molested a 15-year-old. Smoot had 21 career interceptions in 104 games started, Vick had no career receptions in 1 game (not started).

    No wonder Smoot doesn’t like Emmitt. During Smith’s 13 seasons in Dallas from 1990 to 2002, Smith faced the Redskins 24 times. In those 24 games, he had a total of 528 rushing attempts for 2431 yards and 23 TDs. That’s an average of 22 attempts, 101.3 yards, and .96 touchdowns per game. He gained at least 100 yards in 12 of those 24 games. In fact he ran better against Washington than the other teams he faced as a Cowboy.

    I guess Freddie was tired of looking at Smith’s rear end as Emmitt flew by him.

    While your facts are 100% correct, “during Smith’s 13 seasons in Dallas from 1990 to 2002″ “[Smoot] faced Smith [2] times” That’s an average of Jesus Christ, who cares? Their careers didn’t overlap, and their only conflict is one of Smoot’s big mouth and Emmitt’s ingarmmatically noncorrects mouths.

    Emmitt Smith:

    All-time NFL rushing leader, HOF RB, 3 time SB champion.

    Fred Smoot:

    A below average CB who had 4 picks in the last 4 seasons of his career, no SB rings, no HOF in his future. Lastly, a classy comment regarding the “Love boat” an incident referring to Bryant McKinnie and his placing a girl on the bar while on the boat and performing cunilingus – “we call that runnin’ through the okra patch!”.

    No wonder he doesn’t like Emmitt Smith – it is simple case of jealousy, SB ring envy, and HOF envy.
