Say hello to “The Deep Freeze”


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.”
