3 Steelers who didn’t totally suck in Sunday night’s 33-3 loss
JuJu had a really bad game. He did not make any plays or could not seem to separate much from Stephan Gilmore who was all over him like a blanket all night. It is a shame to see a young WR with so much talent and promise come up lame in a big game like this.
The thing we have to remember is that it is only one game and that one game does not define the season. I am sure that Juju will bounce back but this is just a terrible outcome for the fans expecting big things.
Is he ready to take the reins of this team and be the number 1 WR that is needed or is he just a complimentary piece that needs the attention to be taken away from him? I am not sure if that is fair because he definitely showed that he can make plays last year when he had 111 catches for 1426 yards and 7 TDs.
I know it is difficult after this game but let’s be a little patient with our budding superstar. After all, it is only his third season in the NFL and his first as being the number one wide receiver. I am sure that he and Big Ben are already looking at what went wrong and figuring out a good plan for when it happens again. I know the Steelers fans love him and this is just a blip on what will be an amazing career.
He did end up with six catches for 78 yards but that was mostly when the game was out of reach.
