That was about as close as close could be. Jarvis Landry catches that pass on 1st and I’m probably celebrating a playoff berth.

It is on matters of inches that fates of nations (and football teams) turn. It was, if nothing else, a wild season, just not a particularly good one. Those inches went to other teams this year.

You have a legitimately good QB that many other teams would kill to have. If he continues to improve I could see him as a franchise QB. Thatís what a championship team needs.

Never mind, I forgot you were a Steelers fan. Iím not sure whatís going to happen next year. I assume Bell wonít be around.

And if this article is correct, Antonio Brown might not be either.

So he didn't play against the Bengals, desperately needing a win, due to being benched for behavior?

It's official. I really hate Antonio Brown now.

Ahhh! That felt better.

But seriously, say what one will about Mike Tomlin (I think he's a good but not great head coach) but the guy has earned a reputation of taking care of and having good relationships with his players. Unfortunately, players just take advantage of him, to the detriment of the team.
