Antonio Brown Drama… Our Pets Heads Are Falling Off.

We can’t go fucking 2 days anymore without some sort of drama like news from this team and it’s only getting worse. Quick Timeline here:

Antonio Brown Inactive. No Big Deal, that happens. 

Oh AB skipped practice and walk through because of fight with teammate. Not Great. 

AB’s fight was with Roethlisberger because Tomlin and Ben are butt buddies and has requested a trade. Great news. Good to hear with playoffs on the line that was going on. 

Fucking Kittle fans the flames. Damn it George. We are supposed to go see Godzilla together and now you do this to me. 

Tomlin comes out today and doesn’t talk great about AB. AB is hanging out with James Harrison. Everything is done. 

Now that everyone is up to speed lets talk about what is going to happen. I originally thought on Friday when the story first came out that there was plenty of time over the next 9 months for everyone to apologize, go to couples therapy, do whatever it would take to be on the same page for 2019. If Gerry Bertier and Julius Campbell can become best friends with the guidance of Herman Boone then AB and Ben can be besties again too with help from Tomlin. 

Now after the whole trade request, the Tomlin press conference, IG drama, and hanging with James Harrison I’m starting to think AB will be traded. 

How do we feel about it is the question. Antonio Brown is incredible at football and is irreplaceable on the field, I cannot argue that. He is obviously a cancer in the locker room though. You can’t have guys skipping practices anytime they want, it’s not the first time it happened this year either. I am just so over the drama with this fucking team. It’s all the time. Ben threatening to retire, Le’Veon Bell holding out, the Martavis shit, Antonio Brown, James Harrison, Ben calling someone out. It is something all the time. I would love if all the drama was gone and we just played football. Is Tomlin to blame? Probably. He is the one who needs to get it under control. Maybe he has lost the team. Or maybe he just got unlucky and got dealt stars that have ego’s that are uncontrollable. At some point the talent does not make up for the shit going on around the team. I’ve come to realization that I am ok moving forward without Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell if it means a team that is actually moving forward as one. I would also love it if everything got fixed and everyone was happy again but I don’t see that happening. I just wish we could go back to good ole Uncle Charley’s Antonio Brown. 

PS quit telling me with the cap that it can’t be done.

Breaking: The Carolina Panthers Are Dead

The Panthers got their dicks kicked in from start to finish in every single aspect of the game. They had one play that worked twice and that was about it. That play was the ole Christian McCaffrey wheel route. 

Now lets just check out the ass whooping one TD at a time. See if we can get them all. 

  1. Ben Roethlisberger 75 yards to Juju Smith-Schuster. 

The Panthers had just scored to go up 7-0, no worries. 1 play and 75 yards later Juju and his sicko mode cleats were dancing in the end zone. Stay lit JuJu, stay lit. 

2. The very next play Vinny Williams Pick 6 

Tons of credit to TJ Watt for forcing this piss poor decision by Cam. Just probably not the best idea to throw it up for grabs in the middle of the field. Respect the optimism though. 

3. James Conner 2 yard TD to make it 21-7

James the Punisher Conner doing what he does best. Scoring his 11th TD of the season. P.S. we have some dope new Conner shirts on the store.

4. Ben Roethlisberger 53 yards to Antonio Brown

These 2 make it look so easy. AB is so smooth when the ball is in the air doing the most subtle things to get some extra space from the corner. We knew he would have a big night after he showed he was so excited to get to the stadium today, getting pulled over going 100+ MPH in his nice little Porsche.

5. Ben Roethlisberger 12 yards to Vance McDonald 

Vance will make em dance. So you’ve got AB, JuJu, and Conner under control and then you have this bull in a china shop running down the middle of the field…. Good Luck. 

6. Ben Roethlisberger 8 yards to Jesse James

It’s officially a party and everyone is invited when the outlaw is getting in the end zone. 

7. Ben Roethlisberger 6 yards to the rookie Jaylen Samuels

At this point the Steelers were just fucking around and seeing if they could get anyone and everyone on the offense a TD. 

That was it for the TD’s but the shoutouts are not done yet. 

Special Teams: Boswell went 7-7 on Xp’s and drilled a 50 yard FG so he’s basically all the way back and Rosevelt Nix caused a fumble on a kickoff to set up an easy TD. 

Defense: 5 Sacks, 1 Inteception, 1 TD and put pressure on Cam all night.

It was an almost perfect game by all 3 phrases and a certain potential teammate was enjoying it all. 

Few other Notes:

I can’t be mad at Eric Reid because he was in a tough position but he definitely tried ending Ben’s life 

This little hey my bad man its just business fist bump made everything fine for me. 

This dude falling asleep on the bench pretty much summed up the Panthers night. 

What a great night for the Steelers. Buy some merch here to celebrate. https://store.patmcafeeshow.com/collections/pittsburgh

Antonio Brown Pulled Over Going 100+ MPH

This is actually pretty impressive. I’ve been on McKnight Road many many times taking trips to the ole Ross Park Mall (best mall in Pittsburgh). On this road there is ALWAYS traffic and has 486 red lights so being able to go 100+ on said road is quite a feat. Congrats to Antonio on such an accomplishment. Good news here, he didn’t pull a LeGarrette Blount / Le’Veon where they also got charged with marijuana possession. Also good news here is that this shows how excited Antonio Brown is to play the Panthers tonight. Probably because of the Color Rush Jerseys.

The Greatest “Rivalry” In The NFL

In preparation of Sunday’s matchup I’d like to highlight some of the best moments between the Steelers and Ravens. If we are being honest there isn’t going to be a lot of Ravens highlights because well they are absolute garbage. To Quote the Little Rascals, “I hate their stinking guts. They make me vomit. They’re scum between my toes!” The Ravens have a hard time accepting that they are little brother so here are the greatest moments in the rivalry to remind them. 

2010 Divisional Playoff Round – Antonio Brown Helmet Catch: Welcome to the rivalry Antonio Brown. Imagine giving up a 3rd and 19 with 2 minutes left in a tie ball game to lose in the divisional round. That would suck.

2008 AFC Championship Game – Ryan Clark Ends Willis McGahee: Night Night! This was just a nice little icing on the cake to an AFC Championship that had just been won by a Troy Polamalu Pick Six of Joe Flacco. That’s gotta sting. 

2007 Monday Night Football – Hines Ward destroys Ed Reed: Oh just another Ravens player getting laid out, what else is new. Hines was so sly just lurking in the weeds stalking his pray until the time was perfect. You know its a kill shot when Ward immediately starts calling for the Ravens trainers. Poor Ed didn’t deserve that.

2010 Troy Polamalu Strip Sack followed by Issac Redman 3rd & Goal TD that led to Division Title: 3 Minutes left on the clock and counting, all the Ravens had to do was pick up a couple first downs and this game was over. NOPE. Troy of the edge untouched… Might want to block that guy. The Ravens still had a chance to hold the Steelers to a FG but Issac Redman had other things in mind. Imagine losing because Issac Redman steam rolled through your defense. Hysterical.

2008 Santonio Holmes game winning catch to take division lead: Down 3 with 3:30 left on the clock and Ben Roethlisberger leads the Steelers on a 92 yard drive to win on a pass to Santonio Holmes that crossed the Goal line by an inch. 

2016 Antonio Brown TD To Win Division: hahahahaha Antonio Brown is 5’10” 190 lbs and just bitched 3 Ravens defenders to win the division. 

2008 AFC Championship Game – Troy Pick 6 to go to the Super Bowl: My favorite sports moment of all time. Don’t even have words to describe it. 

Could honestly run through a wall after all of those. Lets Fucking Go. Can’t wait for Sunday.
