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.

    I agree bro'... The browns are, not ready yet...
    The order I believe will be: Steelers, Ravens, browns and then the Bengals... Steelers will, be the only playoff team then they'll get bounced in the first round... Too much counting against them to do anything meaningful in the playoffs...
    My list of division champs in the AFC in 2019 is as follows: Chargers (my pick to win the SB), Patriots (the other top 2 team), jaguars, then the Steelers...

    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!!!

  • Amanda Cole

    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.

  • Bobson Dugnutt

    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

    The problem with the Cleavland Browns is that everyone is gonna be gunning for them, and the first team to beat them is gonna dispel all the expectations that people have for them
