Last week, JuJu Smith-Schuster, the successor of the Steelers, responded to the question of whether this year’s Browns are different from past teams.
Smith-Schuster said he thought “they are still the Browns I play every year” and they have some great players, but when everything is said, “Brown is Brown”. The smiles of Browns players such as Baker Mayfield and Myles Garrett entering Sunday night did not satisfy these comments.
Each of them used them as feed for motivational videos, and these wins ended the Steelers’ season before the Browns won 48-37 Browns and made compelling arguments that they were different from Brown. The Browns players shouted “The Browns are the Browns” in the comments after the game and cited Smith Shuster, but after the game, the onlooker said that he did not regret providing them with materials.
“You know, I don’t regret what I said. I said Brown is Brown,” Smith Shuster said in a post-match press conference. “They came out, and they played a field of jail. You know, in some games we felt we lost. This is not the night. I hope the same Brown team will appear in front of the same opponent next week and go out to do what they do tonight. The same thing, and own a hell of a hell. Game.”
For the first time, opponents regarded Smith Shuster’s move as stimulating. His dancing on the midfield logo won him the anger of Bill and the Bengals before losing to those clubs in the regular season. Sunday’s loss put the free agency market on track, and the Steelers will have to decide whether the positive factors outweigh the disadvantages he brings.
