    If there only were some warning signs coming from Antonio Brown.
    Like him sitting out a do or die week 17 game because JuJu was voted team MVP.

    If there was only some way of knowing about this before acquiring him.

    this is why the league sucks, if you want the fine point of it.
    Pure clownery.

    To be fair, it was do or die, but the Steelers also needed unlikely help to get in. Also in fairness, many came to look on those antics as Brown forcing his way out of town so he could get the guaranteed money he wanted. There was no way the Steelers were going to give it to him.

    Brown also has a history of making idle threats, so I'm not sure how seriously I would take the helmet story.

    I see no reason to be surprised. Oakland didn't think Jon Gruden was batshit crazy, either.

  6. I think Brown is mental. A diva.
    And scared.
    I think he is terrified he won't live up to the hype. He's going to be a 31-year-old one-man show in Oakland with a half-decent QB playing behind a less-than-stellar O-line.

    I am so glad this dumpster fire is out of Pittsburgh.

    Hope Chucky enjoys the hell out of this ride.

    The Steelers are looking more and more like the guy who breaks up with his supermodel girlfriend, everyone asks why, and he just shrugs and says, "It didn't work out."
    But deep down it's because she was as insane as she was hot.

    This helmet thing and the frostbite really make me think AB has never recovered from that concussion from Burfict.

    I don’t think he cares about living up to his contract. I thinks he’s just self- centered and self-assured to think he’s better than everyone else. He does what he wants because “fuck you”. He’s insane.
