The Mere Existence of JuJu Smith-Schuster Is Enough for Steelers Nation to Forget Antonio Brown
However, his diva tendencies and subsequent trade demands finally forced a parting of the ways with the Steelers.
As a result, the amount of drama in Pittsburgh has been reduced significantly.
But that doesn't mean they don't have any more personalities in that locker room.
Here's the sensitive AB lashing out after fleeing to Oakland:
Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year ! Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days ! 🤙🏾 by the way check the list https://t.co/2SWWT8k0jx— AB (@AB84) April 7, 2019
Of course, the dude who sent that team MVP thing was clearly trolling Brown, but his reply was still kinda sad.
JuJu responded with predictable class, a concept AB appears to struggle comprehending.
All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league. I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) April 7, 2019
Steelers Nation has clearly forgiven JuJu for that unfortunate fumble against the Saints.
They also seem to identify him as the antithesis of Brown, something that makes them very happy.
Their new hero appeared at a concert in Pittsburgh recently, and his presence on stage filled the frenzied mob with very specific emotions.
That crowd was absolutely referencing their former No 1 receiver, and they were absolutely not thanking him for his service.
The two dudes actually have one thing in common, though.
Yep, they're both really good at football.
