Daily Links: Steelers React to AB’s CTE Post, Pro Bowl Format Criticized



Steelers WR Antonio Brown

Multiple former Pittsburgh Steelers reacted to Antonio Brown’s claim on Friday night that he has CTE and that former Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison is the one responsible for it, and the Pro Bowl format is again being criticized, before we’ve ever seen it.

James Harrison responded to the allegation that he gave the All-Pro receiver CTE. Harrison tweeted the infamous video of Idris Elba choking on a chicken wing in an episode of “Hot Ones,” saying he had received 150 text messages Saturday morning. “Me realizing why I had 150 text messages this morning,” Harrison wrote.

Former Steelers guard Ramon Foster also had fun with AB’s assertion that Harrison wore an oversized helmet for 20+ years and gave him CTE. “I felt I needed to tell my truth too since we revealing what our script said. It was @jharrison9292 who did that to my knee and he threatened @MaurkicePouncey and Gil too. Peep our concern,” Foster tweeted.

🏉 Massachusetts native Pat Freiermuth was at the Syracuse-Boston College men’s basketball game in Chestnut Hill on Saturday.

🏉 Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is not fond of the new Pro Bowl format. “This s*** is stupid,” Jacobs conveyed. Jacobs also said on Twitter, “Man send us on vacation and call it a day.”

🏉 Tight end Zach Gentry is optimistic about being re-signed. “I wouldn’t be surprised if Pittsburgh didn’t do the necessary things to keep me here,” Gentry told Dale Lolley.

🏉 Pro Football Hall of Fame: The PFHOF paid tribute to former Steelers running back Bill Dudley on the 13th anniversary of his passing. “From the time Bill Dudley was drafted No. 1 overall by the Steelers in 1942 and led the NFL in rushing his rookie year, it was clear that he was one of the top offensive players of his generation,” the PFHOF official Twitter account wrote. Dudley was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1966.

🏉 On this date in 2006, the Steelers captured their fifth Lombardi Trophy by defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 21-10, in Super Bowl XL at Ford Field in Detroit. Willie Parker’s Super Bowl record 75-yard touchdown run and Antwaan Randle El’s 43-yard touchdown pass to Hines Ward to seal the win are the most memorable moments from the game. Jerome Bettis riding off into the sunset as a Super Bowl champion in his hometown of Detroit is also an iconic moment in Steelers history.
