And I’m sure many of you reading this article fell for it too.When KDKA news started to promote Bob Pompeani’s one-on-one interview with Ben Roethlisberger, I was excited to hear what the Pittsburgh Steelers’ franchise quarterback had to say after Antonio Brown, and a myriad of others, bashed his name, legacy and integrity this offseason.The interview would be broken down into two parts. One at 6 p.m. ET, and one at 11 p.m. ET. I watched both, and was left with a, “What did I just watch?” feeling.I fell for the bait Jack Butler Jersey
, hook, line and sinker, and watched every second of the interview waiting for Roethlisberger to say something which resembled what the fan base felt as they witnessed their former All-Pro receiver talk his way out of town running over as many as he could before heading to the Oakland Raiders.I wanted to see Roethlisberger talk about being angry, upset and frustrated.I wanted to hear Roethlisberger’s side of the story.I wanted Roethlisberger to say something other than, “I’m sorry.”But that is the difference between myself and Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger saw the big picture, while I was staring directly in front of me. I wanted the immediate reaction, while Roethlisberger understood his actions would benefit the team more than bashing Brown would.With Roethlisberger taking the high road, many have voiced how Roethlisberger missed a golden opportunity to clear his name. But what Roethlisberger did was attempt everything he could to finally put an end to this whole Antonio Brown saga. If Roethlisberger were to go on the air with Bob Pompeani and talk about how Brown was a horrible teammate, and give several different examples, then this feud would continue to fester and be a toxic poison for the Steelers moving forward.He avoided all that by just saying he was sorry. He apologized to Brown for his comments made during his radio show, for anything which might have offended him and hopes the two of them could continue to be friends.Needless to say T. J. Watt Jersey
, Brown took to social media with a tweet which just said two words: Two Face.And this just cements the reasoning behind Roethlisberger’s words/actions.Rather than turn defensive, Roethlisberger stuck to his game plan and allowed Brown to say whatever he wants. As he was talking, the page was turning to the 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers season. And with Organized Team Activities (OTAs) starting Tuesday it couldn’t have come at a better time.Was this prepared? You bet.Was it planned? No doubt. But the timing of everything was impeccable. Say what you want about Roethlisberger, his leadership and his most recent comments, but he has essentially closed the book on the Brown and Ben saga once and for all. I think I speak for all of us what I say, “About time!” The opening round of Wild Card action was something of disappointment on Saturday with the Houston Texans failing to show up for their game against the Indianapolis Colts and neither team doing much until late in the third quarter in the clash between the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks. Surprisingly, our BTSC staff picks improved on their regular season form, with Jeff Hartman correctly picking the Colts to cover the spread and both my picks against the totals landing after the Texans game went under and the Cowboys matchup eclipsed the over. With the Seahawks game ending at a push at 2-points, neither of us technically lost despite picking Seattle. From an opening spread of 1-point, the Baltimore Ravens are now listed as 2-point favorites for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers, while a initial totals position of 42-points still remains as kickoff approaches.SC Prediction - Acknowledging an obvious bias against Baltimore Joshua Dobbs Jersey
, I still find myself siding with the Chargers over the Raven and regardless of their recent loss to them at home in Week 16. With virtually no passing game to speak of since Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback, it is hard to have faith in a team that is so one-dimensional. Jackson leads the league in fumbles despite playing less than half a season and rookie mistakes on Sunday should cost Baltimore victory, assuming Los Angeles can capitalize on them against a strong Ravens defense. Pick: Chargers +2 and Under 42-points.JH Prediction - If you just happen to stumble upon this website, you might not realize this is a Steelers website, but for the other 99% of visitors, it is a general consensus that you dislike the Ravens. Like I felt with the Cowboys Saturday, there are times you have to pick with your head, and not your heart. Hopefully both vital organs are in better alignment Sunday as I feel the Chargers are the winners in this game. However, it won’t be easy.Pick: I’ll take the Chargers both straight up, and with getting points, and I’ll take a stab in the dark and predict the OVER in this game....The Chicago Bears opened as 6-point favorites and there has been little change since then Derwin Gray Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey
, with the line sitting at 6.5-points as of Sunday morning. It is a similar story for a totals position that began at 42-points and is now showing at 41.5-points.SC Prediction - Just making the postseason was a battle for the defending Super Bowl Champions and their reign should come to an end against a tough Chicago Bears defense at Soldier Field on Sunday. While the Bears are almost as one-dimensional on offense as the Ravens, the quarterback is not quite as remedial and their running back tandem of Tarik Howard and Jordan Howard is among the best in the NFL. However, it is worth noting that Philadelphia has been vastly improved since Nick Foles took over at quarterback. The Eagles have also won their last three games in a row against Chicago in convincing fashion. Pick: Bears -6.5 and Under 41.5-points.JH Prediction - In Foles We Trust. Isn’t this what should be on all types of currency in Philadelphia? Nick Foles has been nothing but magic for the Eagles the past two seasons, and him turning the year around and making the playoffs this year only emphasizes the adoration for Foles in the city of brotherly love. However, I feel this is the end of the magic for Foles and company. While I like the Eagles getting points, I don’t think they have enough magic left to make another postseason run.Pick: Take the Eagles getting six, but I’ll take the Bears straight up. I will take the UNDER in this NFC Wild Card matchup.Please feel free to add your selections in the comments section below and we will tally an overall winner at the end of Wildcard weekend.
