If you watched the ESPN build up to the game, it was a porno of violent hits from previous games so their moniker of “The Rivalry” would work. The hypocrisy is insane. Gruden and Sean M. have absolutely no clue of the context in which they speak. No preparation in the game is quite obvious. Gruden’s knee jerk gut feeling calls are awful. This guy is tough. That guy is tough. He is no Collinsworth.

Secondly that block was legal. Even the taunting was a stretch if you can see the all 22. Bell was still chugging for a few seconds after the block. You could argue he was standing over him to ensure he didn’t get back up. I don’t think he was standing over him after the whistle.


Ok, you lost me. You could only argue that behind black and gold colored glasses the size of dinner plates. Come On Man


The only precedent was vs AZ in the superbowl when Harrison was fucking the guy up on the punt return. just kept knocking him down over and over and I thought that was a good football play.

One thing I didn’t understand about this play is that Cincy accepted the taunting penalty which should have been a dead ball foul. In that case the Steelers should have been credited with a first down and had to move 15 yards back from where the play ended. Instead, the officials walked off 15 yards from where the penalty occurred and replayed the down. Am I losing it or did this get fucked up?


They took the taunting penalty because it counts towards him getting ejected. But I am not sure if they considered it a dead ball foul as he was standing over him while Bell was still in the process of getting tackled or should I say running over Kirpatrick.

So I have a very sincere question.
We all know about the fines coming, and the suspension that was announced. I get it.

But do you think behind the doors and amongst themselves, JuJu is being congratulated and support for that hit by his teammates ? Especially because it was Burfect...

I would hate to think he would change his style of play over being overly cautious and second guessing his moves.

AB said he would pay any fine money so that is about as supported as you can get. I also don't see him changing his style of play. He made the same block a few plays later in the same drive.

Several posters here immediately called out Burfict for faking, and sure enough the report from the tunnel was that he told doctors he was fine and bounced off the stretcher as soon as they let him. Meanwhile, Gruden who was in the middle of an unbearable love fest over Burfict all night long, acted all sanctimonious after the JuJu hit, as though he were completely unaware of Burfict’s behavior since he entered the league. As if Burfict’s repeatedly dirty hits and open desire to hurt other players (and celebrate those injuries) had nothing to do with JuJu’s hard-nosed (Hines-like) block and response to the hit. Just terrible color commentary from Gruden not to acknowledge the full picture.



nailed it.
