Baltimore Raven Steve Smith Sr. "came out the womb trash-talking"

The bloggers for ESPN.com chose the best trash talkers for each of the 32 NFL teams, and the choice for the Ravens was obvious. The veteran wide receiver is considered one of the best, if not the best, trash talker in the entire NFL.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens arguably have the reigning king of trash talk in wide receiver Steve Smith. He once said, "Man, I came out of the womb trash-talking." Smith hasn't stopped since. He famously told Aqib Talib to "Ice up, son" after the cornerback failed to finish a game against him. He once celebrated in the end zone by imitating rowing a boat to mock cornerback Fred Smoot, who was involved in the Vikings Love Boat scandal. If there is a Hall of Fame for trash-talking, Smith would be a surefire, first-ballot inductee. -- Jamison Hensley

Smith plays like a Raven, yaps like a Raven, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Even his swag has swag. So no surprises here...
