Ring Envy: A Gift from The Steelers Edition

-by evaldes101993

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. A nice Christmas present from the Steelers came a day late. What’s even better is the reaction by the fans. Many, many Steelers fans are upset, angry, and stunned by the release of their all-time sack leader, and seeing him come to us. Here’s what the fans had to say once they heard the news.
_______________________________________________________
Holy !@#$!

Madness. This !@#$!@# head coach of ours…holy hell.

Wow, what a disgusting move to make to a legendary Steeler. Patriots pick him up……just to rub it in

What a !@#$!@# joke, the fact that Moats has been earning snaps over him is a joke.

I hope a bus !@#$ing slams into Tomlin tonight.
This will be a big !@#$ YOU, spiteful signing by Harrison and his agent.

Moreso a HUGE !@#$ up by the Steelers, if Fournette and company come into Heinz again and run it down our throats…..and that is ENTIRELY POSSIBLE the way we defend the run.

The ultimate nightmare would be Deebo strip sacking Ben to clinch the AFC title for the Cheats while Moats and Chickillo continue to make zero impact. Don’t know if I could recover from that.

He’ll be a plant. Either to spy for the steelers or let an opposition RB run past him for a game winning TD in the playoffs. Yeah.That’s what I’m telling myself. If not. !@#$ you Harrison, you’re no longer a steeler and should not be respected as such.

Say what you want, he’ll give away everything he can about the Steelers organization to remind them how stupid this decision was. Sorry, I don’t see him as the last guy on the roster that could have been cut. We’re going to regret this.

If we play NE in the AFCCG, and Harrison steps on the field, he will have an impact. Even if he doesnt step on the field, he will have provided enough intel to the NE braintrust. They know how to use information to their advantage. A team in the hunt for the SB shouldn’t let this happen.

He doesn’t need to cover. Belichick will use him as he is supposed to be used at this point in his career,as a situational pass rusher similar to Dwight Freeney.He is the DE on a 4 man front

Oh my God if the Steelers don’t beat the Pats and/or make it to the Super Bowl, this place is going to become unbearable.

Well !@#$ him now

Lol. Our leadership is so goddam stupid.

The minute he was released, this was set Into motion. I really hope Tomlin had the foresight to expect this, and didnt just have an “oh !@#$” moment.

I hate feeding the Belichick genius narrative but this is brilliant. Who does NE likely play in the first round?KC Who does Harrison absolutely OWN!? The LT from the KC Chiefs named Eric Fisher!! Anyone wanna bet how this turns out?

I’m already looking at draft picks because we are so obviously doomed.

Dysfunction/stupidity. Harrison opened his mouth in the national media criticizing the Steelers and they waived him as an act of spite, could have waved McCullers instead. Now James is vindictive and motivated and will put it all on the line so he can say !@#$ you to Tomlin and the Steelers. No one can answer if they thought through the possibility of this happening, but we can speculate that maybe they did but they did it anyway. Arrogance? Was it more important to say !@#$ you to James then deal with the possibility of all the Intel he could provide Belicheck? Did they consider the possibility that a rematch could hinge on one play and James could be that one play for whatever uniform he’s wearing.

A thanks to James for being a great Steeler. But screw him now as a Patriot. He can’t cover, so he can’t play our current defense. If the Cheats play him against us, just throw to the tight end on his side. Belicheat already knows all our plays, that’s why they call him Belicheat.

Art2 had his first colonoscopy in January 2002 when Robert Kraft and the Patriots started shoving footballs up Art2’s @$$ on an annual basis.

like finding out your wifes banging a neighbor u always hated..

What a fkn stupid move to cut deebo by Tomlin. I’ll be sick to my stomach to see him in a pats uni.

This has me concerned. Harrison might be near 40, but he has VERY fresh legs and he’s motivated. Very, very motivated.

Steelers releasing him was a !@#$ move on their part! This is the second time Harrison chose to go to a team that can best hurt them. !@#$ move on his part again.

Kinda stupid to play to win when the team stands no chance of beating New England now that James Harrison is on their team. Once he teaches the Patriots the Steelers secret handshake it’s all over!

Owned yet again by the patriots. Better in game management and roster management. Bellicheat does great with no name, little talent guys. He has an angry run stopper/pass rusher now.. he will contribute to that defense no doubt.

It’s not even about him dominating with the Pats, it’s about a legendary Steeler being cut and joining one of our most hated teams. Seriously makes sick.

If Harrison made the game winning sack against Pittsburgh that would really put an exclamation point on Mike Tomlins Resume. I would have to laugh, Tomlin and the front office is a joke.

cheats cut LB Trevor Reilly sign him Steelers. #headgamesTheSequel

To be clear, I don’t blame James Harrison at all. He wants to play. He wants a chance at another ring. Rightly or wrongly, the Steelers cut him after leaving him rot on the bench. If the Patriots come calling, you pick up the phone. Period. I’m angry with the whole sequence of events. EVERYONE saw this coming. And they let it happen anyway. I would rather have seen him released in pre-season if they truly thought he didn’t have it anymore.

this will be like Junior Seau. Late season addition who will add to the pass rush, and is relatively fresh.

This will probably be one of the top 5 cold games in Patriots home game history. This being the coldest : Brady first experimented with a scuba top in the Jan. 10, 2004, divisional-round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, which he said is the coldest game he ever played in. That is also the coldest game in Patriots franchise history; it was 4 degrees at kickoff, with wind chill making it minus-10. The Patriots won, 17-14, but as Brady reminisced about that game late last week, he remembered how it easily could have been a loss. NFL Playoff Machine… Read more »

I know it’s early to think about the draft and free agency but for a team that is about to go 13-3, the pats have a lot of holes to fill… They need to draft a qb early, as many as 4-5 qb’s could be taken in first round, they are set at rb, however this incoming class is deep at rb with as many as 8 being drafted in the first two rounds, they need a TE, (no thanks on Allen, Hollister and Bennett next year), they are set at wr, although Edelman, Dola and Hogan are over 30… Read more »

From Reiss:
8a. Did You Know, Part I (via ESPN’s Stats & Information): When games are completed Sunday, there will be eight teams in the playoffs this year that missed it last year. That will tie 2003 for the most such teams in the current 12-team format (since 1990).

That’s good for the NFL

Rotoworld: The Ringer’s Mike Lombardi reports the Broncos are in talks to re-hire Gary Kubiak as a front office executive. After resigning from his head-coaching position last January in part due to health reasons, Kubiak stayed involved in the Broncos’ organization in a scouting/advisory position during the 2017 season. He was rarely at team headquarters, however, and a true front office position would bring him back to the organization in a major role. Kubiak was Broncos GM John Elway’s backup during their playing days and they maintain a close friendship. Friendships, of course, are the driving force behind almost any… Read more »

Per Rotoworld: NFL Network’s Mike Silver considers Seahawks assistant Tom Cable a candidate for the Colts’ coaching job if Chuck Pagano is fired.
The Colts are expected to move on from Pagano after nearly cutting ties last year. Cable has been thrown around as a retread candidate the past few offseasons but would be a tough sell given Seattle’s offensive line struggles. With Andrew Luck on track to return, the Colts could be one of this year’s more attractive openings.

DinoScapelli

I don’t know why they would hire the Cable Guy. They need to find a real offensive mind who can build a pass-based attack fit for Andrew Luck. If not for incompetent ownership and a poor roster, I would think it would be a great fit for Josh McDaniels.

He’s been consistent the past 4 weeks. Almost considering playing him over T.Y. who’s boom or bust. It’s hard to know who’s going to play this week but if the coach said that, I’d feel better about it. Do they have anything to play for in terms of seeding?

He was just signed by the Steelers like a week ago but since they are supposedly resting Bell, he might get the bulk of the carries. ESPN projects him for 9.8 fantasy points but he’s only listed at like #45 for RBs on fantasypros.

On the topic of head coaches, Marvin Lewis is a rarity. While Bengals won a ton of regular season games, they’re 0-7 in the playoffs. NFL owners today expect turnaround in year 2 and a winning culture by year 3, a tall task for most teams which are not constructed bottom-up.

Per Rotoworld: NFL Network’s Mike Silver reports Patriots DC Matt Patricia would be the “leading candidate” for the Lions’ coaching job if Jim Caldwell gets fired.
Most reports expect Caldwell to be fired after failing to make the playoffs. This isn’t the first time Patricia has been linked to Detroit given his ties to GM Bob Quinn, who overlapped with Patricia in New England. Patricia interviewed with multiple teams last year and looks likely to land a head coaching job this offseason.

I’m not convinced Patricia is head coach material.

I have no idea why you’d want to be a head coach, especially when the alternative is to be a defensive coordinator that can coast to wins in an amazing system.

Money and ego.

I can understand if he wants to be a head coach: who wouldn’t want to create their own wins and not be in the shadow of a legendary coach? I just feel that the jump from DC to HC is a much bigger one. While his defensive schemes have been innovative, having a consistent offense has bailed out the D. I don’t think Detroit has a consistent anything. He won’t be given the time to mature into the role and by the time he gets to grips in stabilizing that ship, Stafford might be past his prime.

In a vacuum Detroit makes perfect sense. The preexisting ties coupled with a hands-off management. I just don’t think Patricia is their answer.

Patricia may call the plays here but Belichick still reigns in decision making. I sometimes feel that could be the reason why Belichick’s assistants have not had much success. Also explains why Parcells couldn’t stand Belichick.

No Patriots moves on the transaction wire today. WR Malcolm Mitchell’s activation from IR will have to wait for another week.

They’re going to see how Harris does first- if he’s bad then they cut him and activate Mitchell.

Or Dorsette.

Yeah, him. Totally useless with a grand total of 9 receptions for the whole of the season and still occupies a valuable roster spot.

NewEnglandBlight

I feel like Dorsette is under utilized. He can play, just hasn’t been given a fair shot.

M.Fan

He had all the time of the world to prove that he has the connection with Brady. When they were down to basically 2 healthy WRs, he should have had much more balls thrown to him. The fact that this didn’t occur tells me that it is not going to happen later either and he must go.

Not saying you’re wrong, but I get the vibe that the guy has talent and hasn’t been utilized correctly.

dfwpatsfan

I have a feeling it’s more of trust issues with Brady. Brady for what it’s worth needs time to develop rapport, and if Dorsett is 5th in his progression it’s not helping the situation.

I hope the Pats hold on to Dorsett for and evaluate him next off-season.

Love how Smack’s latest attempts to spark a football-related conversation fell on deaf ears, but the food topic immediately sparked several answers…
I love taco bell, by the way, having tasted it twice in the US and utterly missing something similar here in Europe 🙂

Nice video. I almost forgot the Jets were 5-10.

That Jets video / tweet was a promoted tweet. Meaning they paid to have it dumped on peoples time line that don’t follow them.
