    Roethlisberger has his own issues, but Brown is a selfish baby who has pulled this act a ton of times.

    I swear it's going to be related to Brown not getting the Team MVP or Ben praising Juju. He's just a complete child who also happens to be an amazing player.

    They've been having issues for a couple of years now. There was something weird about his endorsements or something like that.

    Another one who is going to be traded.

    Honestly i think it's that whole locker room at this point.

    Brown is an ass, Ben is a well documented ass, Bell was an ass (when he was actually still there)

    It's not that Tomlin is bad at managing personalities, it's just the players themselves aren't manageable with their enormous egos.

    You're probably right. I'm just sick of Roethlisberger getting a free pass. He and Adam Gase are PR masters.

    Never understood the Big Ben love-in. Every interview i've seen with him and he comes off as an enormous dolt. Like god found the biggest dumbass he could and gifted him with talent for some reason.

    And then there's the whole two sexual assault accusations.

    something something steeler way

    Ben's free pass is really cause he's the QB, hardest position to replace. You can find a JuJu to replace AB. A Connor to replace Bell. Is Rudolph going to replace Ben if you get rid of him?

    Ben knows he can get away with stuff cause he's the QB. But, his leadership doesn't match is HOF QB numbers and accomplishments.

    Also, the Steelers were without a franchise quarterback for years/decades after Terry Bradshaw retired. They had O’Donnell, Brister, Stewart, Malone, Maddox to name a few..

    It’s hard to replace the QB, once Ben retires they’ll be back to square one

    This is basically what Zimmer wanted, and it's why DeFillipo got fired because he was trying to run an offense like he was still in Philly with Wentz and Foles still. They needed to exactly what they did with Shurmur last year for the most part only with a more talented player at QB than Keenum was. And they didn't. Keenum also had the guts to chuck and duck to Diggs and Thielen too, Cousins didn't .

    Was this not implied by the jettisoning of veterans and signing garbage like Albert Wilson? Like who are you even gonna trade? Jones? Kiko? I don't think those guys have a whole ton of value to start with.

    Probably means Tannehill is deffo gone come the offseason.

    Or you cover those guys, shut them down and go to the table on a new contract with a big smile on your face.

    Glad Kittle was named an all pro, but he should have went 1st team. Kelce had a ton of help to get easier coverage and still finished with less yards than George.
