Stephen A Smith Slams Steelers After Absymal Start Against Browns: ‘Damn Disgrace’

by Will Shepard

14 seconds into the Cleveland Browns’ first playoff game in what feels like 100 years and the score was already 6-0. Ben Roethlisberger, to put it nicely, is playing badly. Stephen A. Smith, one of the most respected media members in the world, has some words for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Known for his hot takes about current events in sports, Sunday night’s tweet doesn’t meet that criterion. He has very little to say about the Browns-Steelers game.

But, in what can only be called an atrocious first half, the Cleveland Browns lead the Steelers 35-10. The game is absolutely insane. The Browns, in the first quarter, have scored the most points in a single quarter in postseason history.

The Browns also now hold the record for most points in a half in any road game in playoff history. Stephen A. Smith is having none of the Steelers’ excuses, however.

Stephen A. Smith Is Disappointed With the Steelers

The Steelers began the year with a record of 11-0. After that, though, the Steelers went 1-4 in the final five weeks of the season. Now, they find themselves in a massive hole in the AFC North Wild Card game.

Stephen A. Smith, taking to Twitter to share his thoughts on the game, keeps it short and sweet. He was clearly expecting a lot more out of the Steelers during this game. But it seems like that isn’t the case yet.

The Browns began the game with a dream start. A botched snap, 3 interceptions from “Big Ben,” and a hot Cleveland Browns team means a severely disappointed Stephen A. Smith.

Pittsburgh’s first half was riddled with mistakes, and consequently, Stephen A. Smith is sick to his stomach. Cleveland came out playing harder, making the Steelers look like an above-average high school team.

Certainly, some of America has to be enjoying it. On the other hand, there are millions of Steelers fans that either turned their TV off or can’t look away like a horrific car crash. As you can imagine, the locker room probably wasn’t the most hospitable place to be after this one.
