What’s behind the Steelers’ breakup of Roethlisberger, Brown, and Bell? If you ask ex-Steelers Rashard Mendenhall he is sharing some much-needed insight.
Read on to see what ex-Steelers Rashard Mendenhall is saying about the Pittsburg Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger…
CelebNSports247.com reports that today the Pittsburgh Steelers are defined by grudge and grievance since the breakup of Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger.
These days, Antonio Brown is with the Oakland Raiders and have vowed to not all Media Fakes any more ammo. Le’Veon Bell is with the New York Jets, he didn’t hold out and stay with Pittsburg. Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger remains with the Steelers.
As for, Rashard Mendenhall, 31, he is a television writer these days.
The three were to be the Steeler powerhouse, but former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall took to Twitter and decided to speak in favor of Antonio Brown in a series of tweets.
Rashard Mendenhall took to Twitter stating the following:
Mendenhall starts off saying:
I know he seems outta pocket right now, but I seriously feel for @AB84. As a black athlete in this country, you can literally lay your body out and give your entire being for a higher cause, the greater good of a TEAM.
He builds AB up:
And when you face the firing squad, for something not entirely your own doing, depending on your position and skin-tone, the “team” may very-well leave your ass out to dry. Think about what it would take to render @AB84, the GREATEST COMPETITOR of our generation, incapable of showing up to play in his last game.
Then he weighs in on Antonio Brown being a “diva”:
To boil that down to @AB84 being a “diva” “selfish” “quitter” couldn’t possibly explain the MAN who for nearly a decade provided professional excellence to the city of Pittsburgh.
Rashard just wants the best for AB.
By no stretch am I saying @AB84’s been without guilt this off-season. I just hope to see more compassion and examination, for a guy who gave everything he had until he couldn’t bring himself to do it, for even one more game…
Lastly, Rashard drops the hammer on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger stating that he’s “racist.”:
Alright, I’ll end the mystery… B’s racist and @AB84’s black. He had to catch balls from a racist quarterback. Every honest player knows it, it’s not a big deal. He was just supposed to take his lickings and move on, like a slave for real.
He closes with clarification on why “it’s no fun”:
Clearly, it’s no fun, when EVERYONE’s the accused…Please allow the dialogue in sports to be equal. Why’s it so easy to shoot at one player, but not the other?
Adding to his final thought he adds sarcasm to the mix stating:
B’s not racist. Just like AB’s not a dirtbag.#letsbefair
