Steve Smith is not to be messed with.

The Ravens wide receiver, fresh off his 80-yard touchdown catch Sunday against the Bengals that temporarily gave his team a 16-15 lead, had some choice words for his former employer, the Carolina Panthers.

According to Sports Illustrated, the Vine floating around was on NBCSN's "The Turning Point."

"And if you [expletive] think I can't play?" Smith yelled at the camera. "You're going to find out in Week 4 [expletive]."

The Ravens host his former team, the Panthers, in Week 4. To be fair, Smith was getting chirped at by Bengals defenders for the entire game. That outburst was probably a long time coming, and quite possibly warranted.

His teammate, wide receiver Torrey Smith, had the appropriate reaction on Twitter.

Given the week the Ravens had, I'm sure a performance that would warrant such confidence from Smith would be welcomed again tonight.
