Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is heading down a dangerous path
Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster recently took a video of himself going over 100 mph down the highway. Here’s why he’s on a dangerous path.
JuJu Smith-Schuster has been a fan favorite since shortly after joining the league. The charismatic young wide receiver appeared to be a budding star in the making, and he carried the weight of the Steelers season on his shoulders after a fumble that likely cost Pittsburgh a spot in the playoffs in 2018.
However, this season has been a different story for the receiver, who celebrated his 23rd birthday less than a week ago. He’s been short with reporters, inconsistent on the football field, and has what some would even call an unhealthy addiction to attention.
But late last night, things went from bad to worse for Smith-Schuster. The wide receiver video-recorded himself and his speedometer while driving over 100 miles per hour down the highway.
I know that everyone can make bad choices at times, but what was JuJu thinking? Here is one of the most popular players on an NFL football team who is constantly in the spotlight, yet he decides it is a good idea to not only take a video of him driving recklessly, but to post the video to social media.
If you didn’t have concerns about JuJu’s maturity prior to this incident, let this open your eyes. JuJu’s actions were careless and selfish, and he could have gotten someone killed – all because he wanted to show the world he can drive fast? I’m sorry, I just don’t get it.
JuJu is still a long ways from being Antonio Brown, but some of his antics as of late are starting to scare me. With a long career still ahead of him, someone needs to set him straight before his foolishness and immaturity really get him in trouble and cause a massive distraction to a team that is already trying to overcome an abundance of obstacles.
The Steelers are out to prove that they can still win without talented players like Brown and Le’Veon Bell, and they need everyone to get on board. JuJu is heading down a dangerous path of poor decision making, and it needs to end here.
