Steve Smith Sr. stops by to tell Michael Robinson and Brian Billick about one of his favorite, never before told locker room stories (1:55). Then Steve dives into the pressure he felt ahead of his first playoff game both on the field and off trying to get his family to the game (8:05). The All-Pro wideout also shares the excitement he felt after beating the Dallas Cowboys (13:50), and the anguish after losing to the Seattle Seahawks in the postseason. He explains how the loss left him feeling uncomfortable about the playoffs (16:05). Coach Billick, Mike Rob and Steve then discuss how they made younger players on their teams realize a trip to the postseason isn't a guarantee (20:05). Finally, Coach asks how the wide receivers coach at Santa Monica Community College was able to handle both Steve and Chad Johnson at the same time (27:30). That experience helped Steve cultivate the 'chip on his shoulder' mentality that propelled him to stardom on the field. Later, he reflects on the mantra he uses to this day to handle the criticism we all face in life (28:50). NFL Total Access: The Locker Room is part of the NFL Podcasts Network.
