Ben Tate throws shot at Terrible Towel

Bob Levey

What member of the Other Three Teams in the AFC North can go without trying to insult the Steelers' Terrible Towel? Not new Browns running back Ben Tate. We feel he needs to be reminded of a few things, since he's new here.

Recently signed Browns running back Ben Tate didn't wait very long to get in the spirit of the AFC North. In a very non-Steelers AFC North way, he lays a dull insult against the Steelers organization by throwing a shot at the Terrible Towel.

If we were so inclined, we'd remind him he signed a two-year deal, and it may not be the best idea to burn bridges - especially when that might mean you'd be stuck in Cleveland forever.

If we weren't minding our Ps and Qs, we might point out he may not even be the best running back in the state of Ohio, let alone the AFC North. This season will be the first real run into the Le'Veon Bell vs. Giovanni Bernard, which should be fun to watch. Tate is set to start his rivalry against Bernard Pierce for the "most mediocre player who receives hype from his fans" award - a.k.a. The Joe Flacco Award.

If we were petty, we might point out Tate is already, by default, the best running back to play for the Browns during Tate's entire lifespan, and remind him again, he signed a two-year deal...with a team without a running back...and approximately $4 billion in cap space.

We'd continue, but it might make us look childish if we pointed out for all the abuse ex-Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders is getting for his Tour of Shennanigans in free agency, he had multiple suitors, whereas Tate had...Cleveland. And again, he received a two-year, $7 million contract.
