NFL analyst Steve Smith called out DC Gregg Williams after the matchup on Thursday for letting his team take “cheap shots” against the Broncos.
The player-turned-analyst went off on NFL Network by stating that Williams lets his players take cheap shots and late hits and that his defense his “BS”. In his tirade against the defensive coordinator on the Broncos, he states that that’s how the DC “wants his players to be”.

Smith went on to say that Williams’s defense has no fundamental structure and that “if it smells like a pig, it looks like a pig & it’s oinking? Then guess what my friend, it’s a pig”.

Why Steve Smith may be angry
Steve Smith has had a stellar career as a WR in the NFL, playing 16 seasons primarily with the NC Panthers. Despite this, he had gone against Gregg Williams defenses before and he wasn’t happy.
He also faced cheap shots of Williams’s system and the WR wasn’t too thrilled about it.
Gregg Williams’ Saints took a couple cheap shots at Steve Smith when he was in Carolina so it makes sense that he’d go off on him. https://t.co/6rnYNc8Wxu

Broncos vs. Jets outcome
The Jets lost to the Broncos despite the late hits Williams has caused. This resulted in the Jets going 0-4 and the Broncos tallying their first win of the season.
New York has to come up with something in order to turn this 4-game losing streak around.
