I know what the Steelers fans think when reading this article.
“Tim, this is just a giant,’I told you!'”
Let me tell you first, yes. Yes, that’s it.
no longer. Quite a lot this is a giant, “I told you.”
Because I did it now, I want you to reassess.
I wrote a lot of columns and made many people crazy. Rip Pirates, Penguins and Steelers. Or anytime I even mention Pete.
Make unwelcome opinions about trades or picks. Some comments on how our local politicians deal with the coronavirus situation. Jump into some sensitive social or political opinions.
But in that situation, for every one or two negative responses, I usually get one or two positive responses.
However, today’s example does not work. I am referring to my article on quarterback Tom Brady that I wrote on January 7, 2020. Three days after his New England Patriots lost to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC playoffs, Brady looked bad throughout.
It was clear at the time that the long-term marriage between the team and the six-time Super Bowl champion QB was difficult, and he might enter the free agent market. At the same time, Pittsburgh is wading during the offseason to see if Ben Rosliberg’s elbow after surgery can recover enough to allow him to put on the Steelers uniform again in 2020.
Therefore, I came up with an idea that despite the disgust of Brady that has been established for nearly 20 years in our beautiful city, if Ben Roethlisberger’s arm forces him to retire, Steelers fans He will also (and should) be welcomed into town.

Between negative tweets, Facebook replies, and emails, I’m sure that my readership has never been so popular against this story as it is today. I expect to regress due to provincial and emotional reasons. Not tactical football. But I have both.
Readers expressed their hatred of Brady because Brady repeatedly defeated the Steelers, the Patriots’ reign of terror against the AFC and the accusations surrounding the spy and debauchery. However, there are many people who think that he can no longer crack it, and if he comes to Heinz Stadium, he will not help the Steelers.
Mason Rudolph would be better. The draft picks will be better. I’m pretty sure if I work hard enough, I will find that “they better stick to’Duck’ next year”.
I was charged with everything from treason in Pittsburgh to spreading “clickbait”.
What is the result of everything?
Roethlisberger did come back. He led the Steelers to an 11-0 start. And Brady still has a better year. Now he enters the Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Do you think people in Tampa will be happier than Rudolph or Duck? Even Big Ben?
No, me too.
I expect such a narrow person: “We hate Brady Kurz, he is a liar, a patriot”. If my hypothesis passes and Rosliberg retires during the offseason, I think most Pittsburgh people will forget all this and salivate at the prospect of Brady becoming a bridge, which can keep the offense competitive. At the same time, the robust defense continues to flourish.
But the understatement of Brady’s abilities is just stupid. Especially compared to the quarterback, if Brady does not come to Pittsburgh, the Steelers will trot on the opening day.
Consider these figures Brady released in 2020-21. At the age of 43 when he was 21 years old.
• Brady’s 4,633 passing yards is the fourth highest in his career.
• Brady’s 40 touchdowns are second only to the 50 touchdowns he threw with the 18-1 Pats in 2007.
• His 401 completions were only exceeded once (402 in 2015).
• Brady has won three playoff games this year. In the past ten years, the Steelers have 3 people.
• For all “yes, what about Spygate and Deflategate?” theorists, this will be Brady’s sixth Super Bowl since Spygate. His fourth time since Deflategate. After the scandal broke out, if the Seattle Seahawks victory were counted, he would be fifth.
During this period, the Patriots defeated the Super Bowl 7-9.
So, yes, it is obvious that signing Brady to replace Rosliberg is a tragic mistake for the Stiles franchise. Good luck to everyone who emails, tweets and posts on Facebook.
Now let’s take a look. Even if he stays healthy, the Steelers should sign Brady to replace Rosliberg.
Yes, if you also want to reply to this comment, my email inbox is also open.
Or, if you want to tell me I’m still a fool, because the Steelers will get it all this offseason (insert the names of Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Sam Darnold, Carson Wentz or Matt Stafford here). So I was still wrong.
What is interesting is how things change. “We definitely don’t want Tom Brady to replace Big Ben. But give us Sam Darnold!”
I’m just kidding, Stillers fan. Enjoy the Super Bowl. I am sure Dwayne Haskins will deliver them as soon as possible.
By the way, my email inbox also accepts apologies.
