Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Round 1: No. 5 Ndamukong Suh vs No. 12 LeGarrette Blount

New, comments

BTSC continues to establish the most-despised NFL player according to our readers. We continue with an accomplished fine recipient and a former locker room divider.

BTSC’s quest for the antagonist that angers the Steelers the most continues with a serial injurer and a limited Steeler doing battle. After a Patriot (Julian Edelman) pulled off the upset in the #4/#13 battle, can another 2x NE champ move on as well? It's your choice.

Despite a fun portrayal in HBO’s “Ballers”, Suh has committed many a personal foul on opposing QBs. He leg-stomped Aaron Rodgers, groin-kicked Matt Schaub and helped injure Ben Roethlisberger by kicking him in the knee last October. That's just naming a few. His opponent in this matchup has labeled him as a dirty player as well. Suh badgered Blount to the point that the doobie brother ripped off his helmet in anger.

At the time, the 2014 signing of LeGarrette Blount seemed brilliant for the Steelers. He was a big back that had success in the league despite his sordid history of punching a fan in college. He also provided insurance for Le’Veon Bell. However, before the third game of the exhibition season, Bell and Blount were caught together in a car after smoking marijuana. There are some that pointed to Blount as the instigator, but it didn't matter one bit...they were both at fault. Although Blount played well when he was to spell Bell, there were reports that he regretted his decision to join the Steelers due to his lack of playing time behind the rolling Bell. A week after a terrible and lackadaisical eight-yard loss on the Jets one-yard-line in an upset loss, a pouty Blount went AWOL and left the field after seeing little-to-no-action while Bell had 200-plus yards against Tennessee. That facilitated his release and many believe that there was collusion involved and that Bell orchestrated his release to return to New England. Some Steelers labeled him as a cancer in the locker room and applauded his release.

Be sure to vote and comment and see who moves on to face Julian Edelman in Round 2.
