JuJu Smith-Schuster: “The Browns is the Browns”

The Steelers' pressure on Baker Mayfield may be the deciding factor in their Wild Card game. Chris Simms hits the white board to look at how Cleveland can slow down Pittsburgh's pass rush.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is no longer literally dancing on the opponents’ logo. He did so figuratively on Thursday.

“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year,” the Steelers receiver said Wednesday, via Tom Withers of the Associated Press. “I think they’re nameless gray faces. They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns.”

Yes. And the Bengals was the Bengals. But the Bengals, stirred by Smith-Schuster’s pre-game dance, managed to beat the Steelers on a Monday night last month.

The Browns have plenty of issues to deal with, so many that an actual or perceived diss by Smith-Schuster may not make a difference. Regardless, there’s no reason to throw gasoline in the general direction of a fire, no matter how small it may be.
