The question is which team?

Ravens

 

 

 

He'll probably will retire and unretire by then again.

 

Dude is a head case. Wouldn't want him near any team I root for.

We are not near done hearing about AB. As the revealed affects of CTE grows in the future, AB will be part of that conversation.....and should be. 

I didn't know that narcissism and ego were symptoms of CTE.

I actually agree with you, he was never like this 2 years ago. Something is going on.

I know what you’re saying, that he wasn’t always like this.

 

But I think your timeline is way off.   Two years ago, his craziness was taking him out of Pittsburgh.  Last year was his craziest and he played maybe a game or two for NE after signing a big offseason contract with Oakland.   3 years ago he went live from a Steelers locker room which infuriated Tomlin.

I think this has been coming on for some time, a good number of years.

yeah maybe 3 or 4 years and it has got worse so it is hard telling what is going on.

I agree. . . 

 

Despite his talent in 2019 he was on and got cut/traded from 3 different teams.  One of those teams (Raiders) sent a 3rd and 5th for him and dropped a crap load of money on him.  

 

Besides the sexual assaults Brown injured his own feet during Cryotherapy because of improper footwear, fought with the NFL over using an unapproved helmet and then when the NFL said he couldn't use the helmet refused to practice, his GM fined him for missing the practices and so he got into an altercation with his GM and may have even threatened him, (Some reports are that Vontaze Burfect of all people held him back.  If you are in a situation where Vontaze Burfect is the calm one. . . you have some serious issues.).  After apologizing for the altercation he demanded a release because the Raiders voided some guaranteed money in his contract.

 

Then he signs on with the Pats and even Belichick can't get the guy under control because he was threatening his sexual assault accusers.

 

If a team signs Antonio Brown they are flat out stupid.  To say Brown has a ten cent head is an insult to all the ten cent heads in the NFL.  And not only that, his million dollar body is on the wrong side of 30, he's 32.  Even if a coach could convince him stop being an * he's going to give you what maybe 2 or 3 years more of high level play?  

 

Not sure I've ever seen someone burn himself out of the NFL in such a short period of time.  Quite frankly part of me wonders about mental health issues because he played for so long in Pittsburgh and did fine and then he just turns into this toxic character.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
