Wow, do we have the match up that you don’t want to see. I mean, sure, maybe OBJ will make some glorious catch. But, really, no one likes either team. Just look at this schmuck.
That’s a Jim Spanfeller-level punchable face.
Let’s talk about the Steelers first, though. I’m still not sure how they corralled in the egos of Antonio Brown and that dude who now plays RB for the Jets. Whatever his name is. He doesn’t matter anymore, now that we know that O-line was the real reason that running backs do well in the Steelers system. Good luck, Jets.
Tomlinson, who comes across like a real jackass in every interview he has ever done, going back to when he was 3 and someone asked him to sing the ABC’s, has done a fantastic job keeping this team on track. I would like to think that he would be nice to someone in his life. His wife? Mom? The sheep he drags to the bedroom and calls “Baker”? I don’t know who, but there has to be someone.
At QB, they have some putz who is just a putz. Middleman Putz might be his name. That’s how much I care. He’s serviceable, like a great many QBs you see in this league. That’s good enough.
The defense on this team is still tough. Not Patriots tough. Not Niners tough. Not Bills tough. But, definitely not a cake walk. That’s why they should win this game, and, also, because I like to hate on The Browns.
Now, let’s get to the part that is hard to talk about: Flaker Mayfield and the Brown turds.
They finally won last week! Yeah! 3 wins, baby. They are definitely going all the way. All the way to another top 10 draft pick, where they will probably draft a QB for when Mayfield becomes a backup on another team and fades into Oblivion. (Side note: I’m picking up Oblivion for the XB1 once I’m done playing Skyrim… again.)
But, last week was a fluke when you look at their season as a whole. OBJ had catches. Mayfield didn’t get intercepted (I would fact check that, but I don’t really want to). They stopped the run. Sort of, anyway, as the Bills should have ran it more, aside from Josh Allen.
This week, the Browns are going to have a hard time stopping the run. The Steelers aren’t scoring a ton of rushing TDs, but they know how to utilize the run game effectively. Kitchens doesn’t really garner a lot of surety as a head coach. He is going to have to play his linebackers in a manner that negates the run.
Since this is a rivalry game, expect a fun game to watch. Really, either team that loses is a win for us all.
“Fair weather fans are HILARIOUS to me…” – Emily Mayfield, wife of Baker, which means she made that choice voluntarily (that we know of), which should tell you everything you need to know about her
Still curious as to why the Browns are favored. They are the Browns, after all. Historical levels of losing that make Detroit fans jealous.
Talk about whatever below.
