The Steelers’ quick , forceful response to the Browns’ first score was one positive from Week 1 While it’s true the Steelers didn’t lose to the Browns on Sunday — in case you didn’t hear, it was a 21-21 tie — it sure feels that way, doesn’t it? But since a tie actually isn’t a loss (as others have pointed out, it’s half of a win), in the interest of fairness and equal time, I’d like to highlight some positive moments from the Steelers’ first regular season game of 2018. Two such moments were back-to-back touchdown drives by Pittsburgh right after the Browns tied the score at 7-7 early in the third quarter. After Cleveland opened the second half and marched 86 yards on a 10-play touchdown drive that was aided greatly by ill-timed and ill-advised penalties by Pittsburgh defenders, one might have wondered if the game would end in a 7-7 tie (Freudian slip), given the offensive struggles by the Steelers in a first half in which they turned the football over three times, including two TOs on potential scoring drives. But despite the passing game looking disjointed during the first 30 minutes Youth Joe Haden Jersey , just one play after the 20-yard touchdown run by Browns’ quarterback Tyrod Taylor, a score that had FirstEnergy Stadium rocking and rolling, Ben Roethlisberger found JuJu Smith-Schuster on a short slant-pass, and the second-year receiver raced 67 yards down to Cleveland’s 7-yard line. As I’ve mentioned in a previous article or two, I spent the latter portion of the summer watching a lot of classic Steelers’ games from the 1970s on streaming TV, so seeing Smith-Schuster race down the sideline was reminiscent of John Stallworth doing the same to an inferior Browns’ defense at old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. A few plays after back-to-back penalties on Steelers’ offensive linemen, not only wiping out back-to-back touchdowns but making it 2nd-and-goal from the 22, Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown, who looked very Lynn Swann-like as he displayed great body control while corralling a 22-yard touchdown in the right side of the end zone. After a quick and unsuccessful drive by Cleveland Cheap Terrell Edmunds Jersey , Ryan Switzer hauled in a punt by Britton Colquitt (to continue the 1970s theme) and raced 20 yards to the Browns’ 39. Two plays later, running back James Conner did his finest Franco Harris impression, galloping 22 yards for a touchdown that put the Steelers up 21-7 before three quarters were in the books. What those two touchdowns showed me is that, despite struggling mightily up to that point, the offense was still capable of imposing its will at any time, in all facets, and from anywhere on the field. At that point, it was a reminder to everyone in the AFC North that the Steelers may have their problems and their struggles, but they’re still the class of the division.Had the Steelers been able to hold their water down the stretch , that quick and forceful third-quarter response would have been something to build on moving forward.I suppose it’s still something to build on, but just a little harder to do after that same offense committed six turnovers.That’s probably why most players and fans are feeling more like the “half-a-loss” portion of Sunday’s tie.Antonio Brown contends recent lawsuits are ‘false claims’ while NFL monitors the situation After news of two impending lawsuits against Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown emerged earlier in the week, both the team and player had been noticeably quiet about the matter. That silence was broken on Thursday when Brown spoke to Adam Schefter of ESPN. One of the lawsuits brought against Brown alleges he caused damage to a property he was renting at the Mansions at Acqualina in Sunny Isle Beach, Florida, while the other claims he threw furniture out of the apartment window that fell a significant distance before hitting the ground near a young child.Mike Tomlin had nothing to say on the matter when pressed by reporters on Tuesday, suggesting he had no knowledge of the issue. However, it would seem that is not the case for the league who are already monitoring the case, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Under the terms of the NFL’s personal conduct policy, Brown could certainly be eligible for discipline by the league in terms of a fine or even a suspension. Regardless if he is found guilty in these matters by the court Youth Xavier Grimble Jersey , and it is worth noting that these are both civil matters seeking only financial damages rather than punitive actions, the NFL could still choose to suspend him.Given the league’s history with uneven and often heavy handed discipline at times, even in cases when it was not warranted, Steeler fans should prepare for a possible scenario where Brown is forced to sit out a few games. Whether such a possible suspension could be held up on appeal or not imposed until the 2019 season would be something to worry about later if the worst should happen. Custom Oakland Raiders Jerseys
