    Look at the teams that kept coaches that should have been fired. Bowles and Jackson. One fired early, the other one should have been. These teams just keep wasting years.

    Can easily see Quinn finally getting canned next season in Atlanta when they start 2-4 or 3-5, like they probably will.

    Yahoo is reporting that Brown had asked for a trade. Not sure if that's new or not.

    AB is a massive diva however the best WR in the NFL. Imagine KC making a move for him next yr and you pair him with Showtime

    I wonder what kind of return AB could get in a trade.


    again with Colbert making the picks, if you got a pile back it would be interesting.

    addition by subtraction plus all the future picks.

    its about time to rebuild the offense anyways

    Jerry Jones will welcome Antonio Brown with open arms.

    given his talents i'm pretty sure all 32 would still take him. I actually don't think the Steelers will give in and trade him.

    he's just a typical super talented WR drama Diva. about 50% of the great NFL receivers seem to be these big distractions

    but a lot of them won too.

    Talent comes out on top quite often

    But if Brown starting beating women and getting arrested

    then Jerry and a few other owners would be willing to take him

    Yeah don't think they will trade him as most his salary will still count on steelers even if he is traded or gone

    more than most...

    more than the actual contract pays him for the year.

    it would be like 21,120,000 of a dead cap hit

    It's the entire organization that is dysfunctional. Bell's offensive line threw him under the bus over his decision. When have you ever heard teammates complain and side with management about another mans contract dispute? Straight up bitch move by those guys. That alone tells me that there's too many bad apples and it starts with these lineman. Pouncey was a little bitch since HS. He creates a ton of noise, gossip. I think he's the instigator of it all.

    without Brown drawing a lot of double coverage.

    JuJu might just be an above avg receiver

    gotta figure out a way to make this work

    Stillers need to squeeze one more super bowl trip out of a loooooong hall of fame QB career before moving back to a Mark Malone, Bubby Brister era for awhile.

    The team needs to make a lot of changes.

    If they have someone in mind now to become their new head coach, it is time to let Tomlin go. If they don’t, use the next 11 months to figure out who they want and can get to become their new head coach. Tomlin isn’t a bad coach but he no longer has the team under control. He hasn’t for a few seasons. The message gets old after awhile if you aren’t winning titles. Bad combo with immature veterans. He could go elsewhere and do fine. A young team would respond to his motivational techniques.

    Brown needs to go. I almost always am on side of player in contract issues but he has gotten paid early 2x already. Maybe 49ers will give them their 1 in 2020 and a 2nd or 3rd this season for him. I’m not sure what his value is but he has to go or the team cannot move forward.

    Ben is very close to being washed. He had great numbers but almost every loss can be pinned on him making awful throws and then pointing fingers at every wr. Offseason they need to find out what they have in Rudolph. Dobbs is not an NFL starter. If Rudolph can’t be one, they need to get extra picks in 20 or 21.

    Lot of holes on d can be filled via draft and FA if Brown and Bell are off books. Watt is an anchor on d but elsewhere they are slow at lb and s. Washington will be a very good wr once he gets steady snaps.

    If they don’t have a solid long term head coach hire in mind, they may as well keep Tomlin for next season. Do you see Ben responding to a young unknown HC? I don’t. Moving on from both Tomlin and Ben after 2019 is what I would do. 11 months allows them to do a low key search throughout next year.

    Bruce Arians might be a good replacement right now but he doesn’t fit Pittsburgh’s type of a long term solution. Old and health concerns.

    No way , that sumbitch threw a football at another player ?
    That's a Tanzania Death Match
    Pittsburgh is a shit show with Tomlin leading , damn near the most talented team in the NFL yet struggles to make the playoffs, waiting until he actually leads tells the players STFU , no time for the Steelers Kardashian show .
    Changes are required whether fans like it or not , AB is full blown crazy AF .
    The cat just walked away at Halftime of their game yet no consequences , no wonder he does what he does .

    Brown is the 2nd best WR in NFL history. It is what it is. The great ones are not easy to deal with usually. You get lucky when you find a Brady or Julio Jones, guys who always say and do the right thing and perform at the highest level possible.

    Like Archie said, most superstars in every sport are divas.
