Mission Accomplished: Nolan Smith finally got to ‘hit a motherf-cker’, destroys Baker Mayfield during 25-11 win against Tampa Bay

Over the summer, Philadelphia Eagles rookie Nolan Smith stated on multiple occasions that he didn’t care about anything outside of “hitting motherfuckers” on the football field.

“I don’t mind it. I don’t care…As long as I get to go out there and hit a motherfucker. I don’t really care about none of that shit. And you get warmer the more you hit people. I tell people that.”

During preseason action, Smith tallied three pressures and a tackle for loss in 23 snaps against the Cleveland Browns while setting up sacks for his teammates. That game, he exited early with an apparent shoulder injury but stated afterward that he was fine and taken out for precautionary reasons.

Despite his performance, the former Georgia Bulldog wasn’t satisfied. Reporters asked Smith why he was seemingly frustrated with himself after a near-sack, to which he gave an invigorating response.

“I just get mad at myself cause some plays I gotta finish,” Smith said. “That’s why they brought me here. They brought me here to finish plays, not get close. Not get there, and I ‘almost’ do that. They brought me here to finish and make plays, and that’s what I’m here to do.”

That brings us to Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where Smith finally seized the opportunity to “hit a motherfucker” when he absolutely destroyed quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Yep. Nolan Smith with a beautiful quarterback pressure. That’s some good, clean football folks. We were in attendance at Raymond James Stadium (Shoutout Phans of Philly) and my guy Brian Cass immediately pointed out how badly Smith got Mayfield on the play.

Baker was then slow to get up and could barely walk off the field on his own. Safe to say “mission accomplished” by Nolan Smith on that play. Ideally, we’ll see much more of this in the week’s ahead.
