  1. The other reports state that he left the field when ever helmets went on.
  2. Moss and Owens were both relatively intelligent football players. Brown is a legit moron who was protected by his team for a long time.
  3. He's going to turn on Carr and Gruden quick. It's going to be ugly.
  4. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    Washington dominated the preseason last year, as well. It indicates to me that the physical ability is there. But he has to put it together in a real game.
  5. Enough people in this thread defended Brown and called the stories bogus. The GM is calling the guy out and saying he's sitting out over the helmet nonsense. It was obvious the team leaked that info themselves because they were getting fed up. Now Mayock put a name to it. I'm sure apologies will be forthcoming... And we haven't even gotten to the part of the story where Brown throws a hissy fit because Carr can't get him the ball enough.
  6. When did Tom Brady try to sneak his helmet on the field or apparently threaten to retire if he couldn't get his way? Or stay away from the team in part because of it? Tom Brady handled things like a sane professional.
  7. Steelers extend HC Mike Tomlin through 2021

    Or, conversely, a head coach who could actually get the most out of the talent/make up for when they don't perform up perfectly. Outside Boswell, Tomlin is the one whose game day performances cost this team the most. I'm being generous there and discounting the reality that Tomlin was all in favor of throwing money at a mediocre kicker who then proceeded to lose several games. That line above gets said about the Steelers every year is the real point. They lose seeding every year and every year there's a few games where Tomlin does just things that are just special.
  8. Steelers extend HC Mike Tomlin through 2021

    Not a long term deal, but just long enough to guarantee he's there for the rest of the Roethlisberger era. So, basically they just took their Super Bowl chances out back and put a bullet in the head. Art II proving that he actually believes his own line of bull about the team only missing the playoffs by half a game and just aw shucks bad luck being the culprit. Now that Fat Andy has a QB, I can't even hope that the Steelers get lucky and avoid the Pats in the playoffs.
  9. You Can Do Everything Right and Be Wrong

    I'd repeat my own relatively safe assumption that criticizing Brown behind closed doors wasn't much welcome by Brown. Not much more than anything public. And that attempts behind closed doors to resolve issues in a quieter matter likely/almost certainly failed to reach him. It's strange to me that people think that comment was the start rather than a culmination of a series of events - many we don't even know about. Ben typically heaped praise on Brown no matter what. What he said about Washington is a nothing story and could have come out of the mouth of any number of players. He stated the obvious. It was a play an NFL WR has to make.
  10. ben wins 1st and 6th place

    It's basically a list of the most targeted WR's.
  11. Raiders sign QB Mike Glennon

    I don't think Gruden is an idiot. I know. But this has nothing to do with Brown. Gruden's moves have made little to no sense since the start.
  12. Raiders sign QB Mike Glennon

    This is a Jon Gruden team that just signed a veteran journeyman QB. Carr is going to be benched for Glennon and third on the depth chart by week 4. Bank on it.

    He very clearly did lose, though. And yet you have guys like Florio running around saying that people aren't getting the point of it all.

    Hearing Brown and now Bell cry that they weren't happy with how close they were to Ben has probably be one of the more entertaining aspects of all this. Two grown men complaining that they weren't close enough with another grown man. Bell wanted to be his friend? You have two guys who are throwing the franchise under the bus because they both wanted to get paid top dollar. Bell is going to throw teammates under the bus to rehabilitate his own image. Why did your teammates trash you? Because you decided to cut off all contact with them and keep them in the dark as to what the hell you were planning.

    This story is good for a few laughs, from SI. Claims that two former teammates say Ben is the source of problems in Pittsburgh, even though one of the two players explicitly states the opposite at the end of the article: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/03/15/ben-roethlisberger-leadership-problems-criticism-antonio-brown-trade-raiders-leveon-bell-season-jets Redman and a guy who was part of the team for like 8 games after being signed off the street. Meanwhile, no one can actually explain how Ben is responsible for anything related to Bell. Like, he was sitting there in the negotiations telling Leveon that he wasn't worth no $17 mil a year.
