The Steelers, not the Browns, will win the AFC North - Stephen A. | First Take

  • Published on Mar 18, 2019
  • Stephen A. Smith does not dismiss the Cleveland Browns' revamped roster, but he is still rolling with the Pittsburgh Steelers to win the AFC North because Ben Roethlisberger has something to prove next season. Max Kellerman and Ryan Clark see the Browns' stacked offense paving the way to a division title.

    Moo moo says; Even though Mr Rothlessberger is the 500 yard passing games champ ; everybody who plays Pitt hates their stinking guts. Especially their devision,and they will die to stop them from being devision champs.

    Nothing much changes in the AFC North.
    Pittsburgh wins the division and play KC in the AFC Championship.
    The Browns MAY get 2nd.
    The Ravens are either 2 or 3.
    The Bungals occupy the cellar.
    There is no other way that this is gonna go down so dont even think it.

    Sorry, it's gonna be my Steelers!!! How often has the Browns even BEEN to the PLAYOFFS, they have had excellent talent before, and gone NOWHERE. There being hyped all up now, they have been hyped before and gone NOWHERE!!! The STEELERS know how to win, and are MOTIVATED to do so. We have something to prove this year, and when we have something to prove THAT is when we end up in the Superbowl, JUST SAYING!!!

    Hey S.A.Smith...have the Browns ever been tied to a Championship? YES YOU STUPID FUCK!!!! MORE THAN THE THE STEELERS IN FACT!!!! JUST BECAUSE THEY CHANGED THE FUCKN NAME TO THE GAME, DOESN'T ELIMINATE THE FACTS. This is why SAS has knowledge of a football fan & not a fan of football.

    No Leveon, no A.B. . Steelers lockeroom will unravel by mid-season under Tomlin and they'll recede like Stephen A's hairline in a windstorm.

      We only lost Ab. Bell didn't play last year. Last time I checked one player doesn't make a team. The defense got better after being ranked 6th in the NFL. We got running backs by committee and one can play wide out. James Washington is a secret weapon and we have Donte Moncrief. Top 2 offensive line. The only reason we didn't make the playoffs is because we were screwed by the refs in the Chargers and saints game. May I remind you that every loss we had were within 7. There is no reason we shouldn't win the division when the team is still super talented and everybody is closer. With a head coaches who has something to prove this year.

    A Smith, of course he's going to pick have a pick here to make, that Steelers always look in shambles at the start of a season, and after New England and Seattle both beat the Steelers, Steelers are going to likely struggle against San Francisco, Bengals, Ravens, Chargers, Dolphins Colts and Rams?are you kidding me? I don't think Steelers ever had it this difficult...and Then they play the Browns? I think Browns will be on top in that division by the time they meet each other. And I am crossing my fingers that this heralds the end of the Tomlin era in Pittsburgh.

  • Alex Brown
    Alex Brown Month ago +1

    Everyone is so quick to pick the Browns because they have some big names for the first time in 20+ years. Steven A is right about the coach. He’s brand new and that does make a difference. The Steelers added a ton of depth (Moncreif, Barron, and Steven Nelson to name a few) after not giving all the money to Bell and had one of the best drafts with Devin Bush, Justin Layne, and possibly the steal of the draft in Benny Snell Jr. Don’t forget they have a pro bowl offensive line and both AB and Le’Veon got replaced by pro bowlers JuJu and Conner. TJ Watt is also coming off of a pro bowl season and you have guys like Cam Heyward and Stephon Tuitt who consistently get the job done on the defensive line. With Joe Haden, Steven Nelson, Mike Hilton, Terrell Edmunds, and Mark Barron as DBs I’m not stressing OBJ and Jarvis. They’ll make a big play here or there but the Steelers will be able to generate enough pressure to force bad throws Chris Boswell missed 3 game winning field goals last season. If he makes those the team goes 11-5 and makes the playoffs. We wouldn’t even be having this discussion if that were the case. Steelers will win the division

We got great players in the draft and we brought in a couple vets and good young guys and most these anaylist couldn't see us doing anything in the draft and off-season ...... Welll how's we do lol I think we gonna be good and are they forgetting that we crushed the browns when we played them again?

    I'll say this much: the AFC North it's going to be a slobberknocker this year. this division is completely up for grabs right now (and yes, I'm including the Bengals in the mix. They look pretty solid the first half of the season before injuries took their toll).

    Remember how promising RGIII, Marcus Mariotta, Jamies Winston etc.were in their first years? Before we crown the Browns and assume Mayfield is the second coming, let's see him actually do it in year two. Way too early to pick the Browns.

  • 1958yankeefan

    The Eagles tried doing what the Browns did, loading up on free agents a few years back, and it was a disaster! And that Eagirl team didnt have a fraction of the ME guys, and attitude guys and divas the Browns picked up...ALL OF WHOM will want the ball thrown their way!!! And Kellerman is a fucking dipshit saying Beckham had no QB! How did he gain those yards between hissy fits and dropping balls? Did he throw the fucking ball to himself? Is Kellerman actually saying Mayfield is better than Eli Manning? Kellerman must have a fucking screw loose for even suggesting that absurd notion!!!
    Eli could win the starting job from Mayfield with his fucking eyes closed in a head to head competition! Theres just too many mouths to feed the ball to for it not to become a problem. Trust me.....the Browns are gonna disappoint their fans in a big way this upcoming season! You think Mayfield will be as good natured about dropped passes and hissy fits over not getting the ball thrown their way as Eli was? Stand back and watch the fireworks folks.

    Baker looks legit, but so did RG3, Sam Bradford and Jamis Winston in their rookie seasons.
    The Skill positions all look great, but there’s a lot of potential character issues. These guys could be their biggest strength, or biggest weakness.
    The defense has good pieces but lacks veteran leadership.
    And the O line, arguably the most important group, has a long way to go.
    The biggest question is weather the coach can reign it all together. I’m not sure, so until I see really on the field production I’m sticking with Pittsburgh.
