Pittsburgh Steelers legend “Mean” Joe Greene joined The Zach Gelb Show on CBS Sports Radio Wednesday, and was brutally honest with regards to his former team’s performance of late.
“In all the years I’ve been watching my team, that first half was probably really the saddest day I’ve had in all of my years of playing and all of my years since my retirement of watching the Steelers play,” Greene said of last Thursday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Pittsburgh found themselves trailing 29-0 early in the third quarter before mounting a nearly historic comeback effort that ultimately fell short.
Greens also weighed in on wide receiver Chase Claypool, who’s posing and posturing on the Steelers’ potential game-tying drive prevented the offense from having multiple shots at the end zone as time expired.
“Why you playing this game,” Greene asked. “But the game is not about him pointing the first down. Hell, we can see. We know you made the first down. Get your tail back to the huddle. Give the ball back to the official. Very immature.”
