New, comments

Time to check on the latest news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 season is officially over. After finishing the year 8-8, the Steelers, and their vast fan base, has another long offseason awaiting them. Just because the games are done doesn’t mean we stop providing you with features, commentary and opinions to tide you over throughout the offseason!

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at whether or not Antonio Brown was actually speaking the truth during his most recent radio interview with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh.

Let’s get to the news:

  • When Antonio Brown speaks Steelers fans typically just tune him out. But during his most recent interview, was he speaking the truth?

Tim Benz: Antonio Brown’s interview was maddening. Now let’s talk about where he was right.

By: Tim Benz, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Antonio Brown’s first Pittsburgh radio interview since he left the Steelers was 22 minutes of rambling inconsistencies, inaccuracies and illogical denials.

That being said, let’s try to do what you may think is impossible. Let’s talk about where Brown was right.

Because, believe it or not, A.B. was actually on point about a few things during his appearance on 93.7 The Fan on Thursday.

Trust me. That last sentence was 10 times tougher for me to write than it was for you to read.

Brown was right about the NFL. There is no investigation into his alleged sexual misconduct. The league knows what it needs to know. And it is dragging its feet on purpose in an effort to keep the former All-Pro receiver out of the league.

Commissioner Roger Goodell knows NFL teams can’t help themselves. Brown is a talent. And if he is available, a team will sign him. And Goodell doesn’t want to deal with that headache. Nor does he want to have to help another team clean up that mess.

Brown is also right about JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Kinda.

  • This isn’t a question of what the Steelers would look like without Bill Nunn, but what the NFL would look like without Bill Nunn.

Labriola on why the doors should open for Nunn

By: Bob Labriola, Steelers.com

Ready or not, here it comes:

• At the risk of contributing to the Hall of Fame hangover gripping the nation’s NFL fans around this time, I have something to get off my chest.

• Bill Nunn deserves to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

• Nunn deserves it, not just because he was the artist behind the greatest draft in NFL history, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 1974 version that produced four Hall of Fame players over the first five rounds and a fifth in the form of an undrafted free agent linebacker turned safety.

• Nunn deserves it, not just because of John Stallworth from Alabama A&M, and Mel Blount from Southern, and L.C. Greenwood from Arkansas AM&N, and Frank Lewis from Grambling State, and Dwight White from Texas A&M Commerce, and Ernie Holmes from Texas Southern, and Joe Gilliam from Tennessee State, and the countless others he was responsible for bringing to Pittsburgh during a six-year period that saw the Steelers metamorphosize from laughingstocks to a dynasty.

• Nunn deserves it, not just because his fingerprints are all over the Steelers’ six Lombardi Trophies as their best scout in franchise history, or because he had a symbiosis with Chuck Noll that was summed up in the marching orders Noll gave Nunn when their working relationship began. “You know athletes,” Noll once told Nunn, who was a good enough college basketball player to be asked to help integrate the NBA after World War II. “Bring me athletes,” added Noll, “and we’ll teach them how to play.”

• Nunn deserves the Hall of Fame, because he is a historically significant figure in helping to shape the National Football League into the sports powerhouse it is today, and for those who might be suffering from a chronic case of “too many Steelers in the Hall of Fame,” the bulk of Nunn’s work toward opening the NFL to a group who ultimately included some of the greatest players in league history happened before Dan Rooney ever hired him.
