Former running back, O.J. Simpson posted an impromptu video on Twitter weighing in on the playoff games and JuJu Smith-Schuster’s comments.
Simpson begins the video by stating his allegiance to the Buffalo Bills and recapping the team’s recent performance. He then continues to talk about the recent game between the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns. Simpson admits that he was “pulling for the Steelers,” but not because he’s a Pittsburgh fan.
“I was kinda pulling for the Steelers – not because I like them better – but because I feel better about the Buffalo Bills playing the Steelers than playing the Ravens. The ravens scare me. They scare me a lot,” says Simpson.
Simpson then weighed in on the recent comments from Pittsburgh’s wide receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster.
“I think his comments took an under-practiced, under-coached, under-manned team and made them over confident, over motivated,” he says laughing. “And it seems to me like the entire Pittsburgh team played as if these were the same old Cleveland Browns. But they’re not the same Cleveland Browns,” says Simpson.
Along with the video, Simpson writes, “What a great weekend of football.”
Does JuJu Smith-Schuster Regret His Comments?
After a 48-37 loss to Cleveland in the first round of the playoffs Sunday, people are wondering if JuJu is eating crow. However, the athlete doesn’t seem to have any interest in retracting his comments.
“You know, I don’t regret what I said,” he said during a postgame interview. “The Browns is the Browns. They came out and played a hell of a game,” he said.
To make matters even a little more embarrassing for the Steelers, Cleveland took a 28-0 lead over Pittsburgh in the first quarter. That is actually the highest first-quarter lead made by any team since 1970. Additionally, Cleveland’s win against the Steelers on Sunday broke a 17-game losing streak, with the Browns’ last road win over the Steelers coming in 2003. It was also the Browns’ first playoff game win since 1994. Nevertheless, JuJu Smith-Schuster holds strong to his opinions about the team.
