Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool has claimed some responsibility for his costly first celebration against the Vikings, but not all.
Pittsburgh fans are tough, and notoriously hard to please. Once a Yinzer, always a Yinzer, and boy is this iteration of the stubborn steel loyalists when it comes to their wide-ranging recorders. You can blame Antonio Brown PTSD for that.
When it comes to the problem Claypool willing to waste time celebrating the name on the back of his jersey, instead of increasing the playoff chances of the actual team he plays for, no doubt.
Claypool was wrong – he knows this. And that’s why, after the game, he bears at least a little bit of responsibility for his misconduct.
“I was processed near the hash. Did my little first point. Went to serve the referrer. He just got there. … The ball flew out of my hand. That’s what takes our time. But I definitely have to get better,” Claypool said.
Steelers: Chase Claypool’s excuses aren’t worth hearing
Claypool is the man with the most penalties in the NFL this season, and he committed another personal foul on Thursday night, leaving Mike Tomlin on the bench.
Apparently he didn’t get the photo.
The Notre Dame production was not good all season. Everything is old for him Steelsmith fans think that JuJu Smith-Schuster is like that. Yet the minute JuJu stepped onto the field, the TikTok dance stopped, and he became a real Steeler. Smith-Schuster is an incredible interceptor who trusts when it counts the most and is willing to do whatever it takes for his team to win.
What did Claypool show? Some impressive stats and fitness frames have disappeared so far this year.
There’s plenty of time to turn things around, if only because these Steel Men don’t have much else to offer. Let’s hope Claypool will heed his warning.
