  1. Who wins the AFCN 2019

    I legitimately posted on FB at 03:00 yesterday that the Browns were winning the North. Then they got OBJ. No offense to the Ravens but Earl Thomas is not the same guy and they have a new GM who doesn't have Ozzie's track record. The Steelers offense - their strength - is gonna stagnate and the Bengals are the Bengals.
  2. Antonio Brown traded to Oakland for a 3rd and 5th round pick

    They should've let my boi get a ring... Wait a minute...
  3. Antonio Brown traded to Oakland for a 3rd and 5th round pick

    The narrative on Brown - whether wrong or right - has been written. Guys like Pete King now consider him a TO/Ocho-level cancer. As a result, he will have to have an amazing back half of his career (I'm talking coming close to Rice) to be a first ballot guy. The same guys who took him off their AP ballots this year will be HOF voters.
  4. Antonio Brown traded to Oakland for a 3rd and 5th round pick

    Anyone who watched the Steelers last year knew this, unfortunately. Steelers fans came to Ben's defense - and Steelers Depot has even put together a piece about every time he took the blame for a loss during his career - but the reality is Ben was the one who was off in the WiFi duo, not AB. Frustrating that an All-Time Great Duo got seperated because one or both of them had egos. I won't be cheering for AB anymore but I do still want him to become an all-time great so I hope ABDC works out.
  5. Antonio Brown traded to Oakland for a 3rd and 5th round pick

    He's already gotten rid of the Hogan mustache and blue plaits... He played the hell out of the Steelers. I don't think this started about money - I believe him having issues with Ben - but I think he actually outsmarted everyone and figured he could turn the situation into one about money (and even tweeted as much) and ultimately did. He basically did what Le'Veon Bell wanted to do but did it in the span of 2 months whereas Bell had a concocted plan for a whole year that didn't exactly work out.
  6. It's obvious that sometimes the team wins inspite of him simply because even at the start of the year they have one of the most talented rosters in the league and certainly do now, though lacking depth. It's embarassing that he still hasn't figure out rotations. His current rotations are. Starting 5 Jimmy/JoJo/JJ and 2 Random Guys Ben/Tobi and 3 Random Guys Sprinkle in overusing Bobi and you have a BB special. It honestly doesn't make sense why he doesn't have a "Simmons and Shooters" lineup that resembles the "International Death" lineup from last year's 17-game win steak. Something like Ben/JJ/Tobi/Scott/Bolden. Also doesn't make sense that if he's going to continue to overuse Bobi then he needs to be in lineups with Tobi to run Pick and Roll like they did in LA.

    Do people realize we'd not be getting Justin Houston of old, right?
  8. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    Man... Would've been nice if we had this sense of urgency over the last two or three years.
  9. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    The only thing worse than losing AB and doing typical Steelers Free Agency signings is hearing Steelers fans lose their stuff that LJ Fort will be starting in Philadelphia. Like, I see Steelers fans arguing he was like some elite coverage linebacker like we didn't run a crap ton of zone and get beat in his zone.
  10. These 3 but flip the order.
  11. All-NBA Predictions

    Is there really anyone at the SF position that has an argument over George? I feel like he's a lock for first team as well.
  12. All-NBA Predictions

    If you want to make the argument that Jokic is better offensively pretty easily then I can make the argument that Embiid is in another stratosphere defensively... Both are elite offensive players; One is an elite Defender.

    Also, watching Brown on Facebook is a bit crazy right now. Forget Twitter, etc where he's trying to make his case. Dude has just absolutely 100% lost it. Will be interesting to see if he doesn't start jumping on the table and throwing monkey turds at Mr. Rooney this weekend.

    There's a difference between calling out Ben in 2008 when he was nowhere near a leader in the locker room and calling out Ben when he's the sole holdover from the Super Bowl teams and thus the unquestioned leader, whether he is really a leader or not. Harrison, Ward, Sandersand others have called Ben out for reasons similar to this saying he doesn't take accountability but all did so after leaving the team. Not sticking up for Brown as I could care less whether he stays or goes (see my post two spots up), but I find it funny that Shannon Sharpe has gone with what Brown said and everyone lambasted him on twitter saying he "did no research" but can only find the same 5 or 6 examples over a 14 year career of Ben holding himself accountable. Our fanbase, regardless of who's side they take, has become notorious this off-season with failing to do due diligence for either side.

    I'm over all this bull- but he did find ways to handled it properly for years, IMO. Never called Ben out. When Ben said he should've ran the route flatter even though the issue was 100% on Ben, he said Ben earned the right to criticize him, etc.
