  1. Antonio Brown was a product of Ben Roethlisberger throwing him the ball. Good luck having Derek Carr provide that kind of production. We all know AB is all about his numbers, not winning. Leveon Bell wasted one of his prime years holding out. The Jets won't be good for another 3-4 years and Bell's career will then be over. What an idiot.

  2. THE PROBLEM WITH BEN IS OTHER TEAMS DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HIM RUNNING THE BALL THEY KNOW HE PASSING ARE HANDED IT OFF AND BEN MAKE MISTAKES IN GAME TRYING TO DO TO MUCH WITH HIS PASSING WHEN THE OTHER TEAM KNOW HE PASSING

  3. From the start haven’t we established the fact that Ben WAS part of the problem the entire time. Why are we still making the topic a question when it’s evident that most people know or assume he was.

  4. Why is nobody pointing the finger at mike tomlin. If last season repeats again, it's tomlin that needs to be the problem. Big Ben is only doin what he's doing because tomlin let's him. Notice when bell chose to sit out, ppl in the locker room was talking about his contract. Meanwhile they were 1-2-1 against teams they should've beat. All of a sudden tomlin comes out and says we need volunteers not hostages.
    Why in the world he didn't say at the beginning of the season. Secondly AB and Big Ben. I understand that a b wasn't always right but Big Ben doesn't have the right to be throwing people under the bus as if it's never his fault why they underachieve. When the season was over with Le'Veon Bell and a beloved Pittsburgh Tommy came out and said there was a cleansing in the locker room basically taking shots at Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. Pretty much siding with Big Ben agreeing with Big Ben as if Big Ben isn't the issue. And all of this could have been avoided had he just put his foot down instead of trying to be a players coach

  5. Ab gone lb gone doesn't matter defense wins championships and we have a way better defense this year than we did last year Steelers will be fine I can't wait till they start showing it so everyone can shut the f*** up

  6. This guy Damien dont knows didley squat about Pitt. Believing Stephen A doesn't either. Two sportscasters with frankly nothing better to talk about. People that follow the Steelers every week know the issues of the team. End of story.

  7. AB yes, Bell NO. Connor had 973 yards & 10 TDs and averaged 4.5 YPC while missing 3 games. That’s a 74 yard per game average. If he had played all 16 games, he was on pace for 1,197 yards and 12 TDs. Now Bell had 1,291 yards and 9 TDs with a 4 ypc average with an 80 yard per game average in his final season in 2017. Their stats were virtually identical. Also, Pittsburgh scores more points without Bell on the team. So Bell would absolutely NOT be “vindicated”.

  8. they both left because of money so they were validated the very second they signed contracts guaranteeing them a bunch more money. cant believe these guys get paid money to open their mouth
