The Winner in Antonio Brown Trade: AB Himself

The NFL Trade “heard around the world” happened over the weekend. My Pittsburgh Steelers traded Antonio Brown to the Oakland Rrrrraiders for a third- and fifth-round pick in this year’s draft.  While I was shocked that Pittsburgh was able to garner two draft picks from Oakland, the Steelers clearly got fleeced for a talent like…

Steelers Are to Blame for AB Trade Mess

So much for “several teams” interested in trading for Antonio Brown. The Buffalo Bills announced they have pulled out of trade discussions with my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers late last night, saying they will focus solely on free agency and the draft. This came on the heels of several of those aforementioned teams (Titans, Washington, Raiders…

Which Team Is the Best Fit for Antonio Brown?

First of all, let me start by saying this: the Pittsburgh Steelers should NOT have let the Antonio Brown situation get as bad as it is right now. Ben Roethlisberger (who I think is the BIG part of the problem) should have tried harder to make the situation with AB right. He’s going to miss…

The Reason I Love the Steelers: Dan Rooney

There are a few professional sports franchises that have a one-name association with them. New York Giants: Mara.  New York Yankees: Steinbrenner.  Oakland Raiders: Davis.  Los Angeles Lakers: Showtime.  Dallas Cowboys: “Jerry-world”. One of those biggest names passed earlier today.  Rooney – as in Dan, the chairman of my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. Before I become…
