    MINNEAPOLIS Vikings safety Harrison Smith crossed a line when he made contact with back judge Steve Freeman after a play in the second quarter. Smith was ejected from the game.

    “He grabbed the official,” referee Jeff Triplette said. “The official was trying to separate him and he pushed the official to the side. That’s an automatic ejection.”

    Smith said he “was just caught in the heat of the moment, kind of jawing back and forth with some of the Titans players.”

    “I accidentally put my hands on him,” Smith said. “I didn’t realize until afterwards, until after I touched him, that it was an official. It was just stupid.”

    Robert Blanton replaced Smith and finished with four tackles and an assist.

    Even though that was stupid, this is a guy we could've drafted... and he looks really good.

    Could've let Griffin walk, re-signed Finnegan, drafted Smith... but I can only dream of us doing something smart like that.

    I'm still happy with the Wright pick, though when it happened I was furious.

    how many were for FDs or TDs? How many YAC did the slow midget get?

    I'm seriously sick of people looking at his YPR and not actually watching his catches. He had nowhere to go on every single catch yesterday. Hasselbeck can't throw a pass beyond 4 feet, so it's hard for Kendall to do anything. He was swarmed on every catch.

    I came in this thread to bring up the same point. Back during the draft everyone said there's no safties worth our pick.. I brough up Barron and Smith - who's right now! Harrison Smith is a monster, future pro-bowler, and right now fighting for D-ROY.
